Wardrobe Essentials for Fall

We’re reaching the tail end of summer, so the time is approaching to retire our crop tops and next-to-nothing tanks for more material and warmth.  One of the most chic and versatile pieces, which I never get sick of, is the oversized sweater.  Black, tan, white, or colorful, this item is a must for Fall 2016.  Pairing a large sweater with tights, knee-high boots and a scarf may be the easiest outfit for those early morning classes, and a simple outfit is all we’re looking for with our hectic schedules, am I right?

With endless ways to wear this fashion essential, you’re left to style it however you choose. Don’t be afraid to add your own flair. Wear it with or without a coat, with a pair of skinny or boyfriend jeans, a skirt or a midi dress. By just wearing it, you’ll achieve that sophisticated look that you were aiming for. Scroll through the outfits below to see how I styled this Free People sweater! Not to mention, I bargained $2 for it!

  1. Suede Skirt

You can’t go wrong when transitioning with a suede skirt. Whether you’re going out with the girls, going on a lunch date, or even running around on the weekend, this look is put together, yet not too complicated. Put on your favorite booties and you’re set, my dear!

2. Boyfriend Jean

For more of a comfy & casual outfit, throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans.  I’ve always been a fan of this slightly distressed style. I feel like I’m wearing my mother’s hand-me-downs every time that I put them on.  It took me awhile to find a pair that fit me just right, but the hunt was well worth it.  Denim adds something special in comparison to your typical black leggings. Try it out!

3.  Detailed Slip Dress

I absolutely adore this slip dress! Slips were a little confusing to me when I first discovered them. I wasn’t exactly sure how to wear them, but throwing an oversized sweater over top of a slip is a chic styling tip. I now own a couple slip dresses and love layering them as I did here! Due to the v-neck sweater, I was able to show off the dainty detailing of the dress. Once the weather starts getting chillier, sock booties or knee-highs would complete this look perfectly. If slip dresses aren’t your style, you can even find an oversized sweater that is long enough to wear as a dress!
