This fall I’ve been trying to curate a wardrobe I’m excited about and truly represents my personal style. With getting older comes total awareness of things I love (and things I don’t) and it’s become a little easier for me to shop items I know I’ll wear for a very long time.
That doesn’t mean I don’t like to spice things up though! While I’ll always choose to spend my money on timeless staples, today I thought I’d suggest some fall essentials every woman needs – regardless of whether they’re trendy or not. Afterall, if you’re reading this you’re probably a fashion lover and when the shopping bug bites, it’s nice to have a guide.

5 Fall Essentials You’ll Need this Season
Ladies, I had to. It wouldn’t be a fall wardrobe must-haves list if I didn’t include cozy sweaters. The one I’m wearing is crazy soft and probably the most comfortable sweater I own – I love the color too! It’s a bit deeper than my color crush marigold but still so versatile. Another great option is this one I just got for $12 – it’s cream (so it will go with everything) and you can’t beat the price!
Sidenote: A few basic, neutral “sweater” shirts are always great for layering or easy styling! I just picked up this one in cream and black and I’m very impressed with the quality for the price! I got both in medium.
A TREND PIECE
Just because I’m a lover of classic pieces doesn’t mean I don’t participate in trends 😉 I’m just not big on splurging on them. My chevron velvet shoulder purse is under $40 and quickly becoming a favorite. I love how easily I can dress it up or down. Plus it’s definitely on-trend and the chevron design very YSL-inspired.
Another accessory I’m loving at the moment is my phone case. While leopard is popular right now, I wouldn’t necessarily call it a trendy print because it will forever be a favorite for many and will always add a fun element to any outfit.
BLACK BOOTIES THAT GO WITH EVERYTHING
I’ve already styled these booties here – and also here – and now I’m styling them again in this post. I’ve fallen in love with these under $40 black booties and I honestly can’t believe the quality and how comfy they are. I’m definitely not afraid to wear and re-wear pieces I truly love and that’s why these bad boys are a must for any fall wardrobe. They really go with everything!
A VAMPY LIP
I kinda cheated on this one and added a beauty product but what can I say, lip color can definitely be part of an outfit sometimes. No matter the year, deep lip colors will always surface once fall comes around and a go-to vampy lip is necessary. I’m wearing a soon-to-be released shade from Entitled Beauty called Arleth and guys, it’s so pretty! Shout out to two dear friends of mine who developed this formula because it’s super comfortable on the lips and very long-lasting! I’ll keep you all in the loop when it launches!
Great if you’re on the petite side; still awesome even if you’re not – high-waisted jeans really make any casual outfit look just a bit more put together. If you’re on the petite side, they can make your legs look lean and longer and really hug your curves. I’d say definitely invest in a deep wash pair and play around with burgundy and perhaps a fun print or design like embroidery.
I’d love to know what wardrobe pieces you always gravitate to come fall? Let me know below!
Happy Thursday loves!
