Fall Must-Haves To Spice up Your Wardrobe

The weather is getting colder, but that does not mean style has to go by the wayside. Read about these top trends for fall and update your closet.

As the weather gets colder in fall, you may find yourself reaching for those fleece leggings and oversized sweaters. While the old standard is convenient, it is still important to update your wardrobe with new pieces for fall. There are some exciting trends you will enjoy adding to your collection. You will look fashionable while staying warm in the crisp autumn air. These are the fall must-haves to spice up your wardrobe.

Knit Dress

Knit dresses were popular this summer and they have remained popular in the fall. The only thing that has changed is the sleeve length. Ribbed knit dresses and sweater dresses are especially trendy. Try adding one to your wardrobe. They look great with tights and ankle or knee-high boots.

Thick Tights

Just because it is colder does not mean you have to do away with tights. Instead, purchase thick tights or ones with flannel inside. They bring any outfit together while keeping you warm. This fall, many people are wearing them with pencil skirts or plaid skirts with pleats.

Brown Accessories

Brown is the new black this season—especially when it comes to accessories. Try a brown leather bag, tan boots, or a chestnut-colored suede duster. Some top fall nail color trends pair nicely with brown accessories.

Corduroy Skirt

A corduroy skirt is one of the top fall must-haves to spice up your wardrobe. This popular piece is made for the season. Try one with buttons down the front. Opt for unique shades like dusty rose, teal, and navy blue.

Patent Leather

Shine is very popular this season. Whether it is a skirt made from sleek fabric or a bright accessory, you will catch plenty of attention when you add some luster to your wardrobe. That is one of the reasons patent leather is so fashionable this fall. Its glossy look adds the perfect touch to any outfit. Pleather, also known as artificial leather, is a great option for those who do not buy leather.

Combat Boots

Modish combat boots were popular in the 90s, and they are making a comeback. Try standard combat styles or ones with high heels. They can be dressed up with stockings and flowy, flirty dresses or skirts. Dress them down with skinny jeans, distressed denim, or cuffed boyfriend jeans.
