Summer may be the most loved season of the year because it speaks of so many fun things — warm weather, casual hangout trips, time-off school, beach hopping, ice cream and blizzards, and some cool outdoor fashion. It is that time when everyone just wants to go out, feel the wind and enjoy the sun with family and friends. But of course, we all know that just like most things, every season comes to an end so today, we say hello to fall.
Fall (or sometimes autumn) is that special in-between season where summer tails off and we start the march toward winter. It is that cursory period where daylight becomes noticeably shorter and the temperature cools down considerably. In most places, fall means the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees and for the artsy, it is melancholia —the inward season, the end of summer and anticipation of chilly winter.
While fall isn’t really a crowd favorite, a lot of people still thinks that this season is an amazing time to play dress up. For fashion aficionados, fall is not just about crazy lazy evenings, dinners by the fire, candles, cozy socks, cinnamon and cloves, scrabble, caramel apples, getting all bundled up and family time. Because fall is a preparation for something cold and really really chilly, it is the perfect time to actually try out some comfortable cute layers and match the changing leaves with a mixed pop of colors.
So yes, how to strut the road with some cool fall fashion pieces?
Let us count the ways.
- It is the sweater weather.
Who doesn’t love the sweater all-day look? Aside from the fact that this fashion style is really really simple and requires minimal planning, there is no denying that throwing on a cozy sweater with some leggings is a perfect chill look. And being able to rock an oversized sweater can be completely comfy and stylish at the same time.
Yup, yup —you can still look like you could strut a runway with a knitted mustard sweater and a pair of matte leggings.
- Time to wear those boots and thigh highs again.
Because these pairs just match all fall fashion styles, it is important that you have your stack of boots and thigh-high socks ready again. Aside from the fact that you can comfortably keep your toes warm, wearing boots can also add punk and character to your mix of an outfit.
TIP: Try the cute one for dresses and the more sleek ones for layers.
- Follow the hat trend.
Spice up your hair look with some trendy hats. Sure, beach hats and visors are great summer pieces, but for fall, the best line of hats includes balaclavas, knit beanies, head scarves, chic fedoras, slim berets and a bunch of bucket head wears.
Pair your simple sweater OOTD with a stylish hat and you’re sure to make a regular weekday a fashionable moment.
- Scarves, scarves, scarves.
Scarves are the perfect addition to any fall outfit because of its duo purpose. One, they can take a totally simple outfit and just add that perfect amount of color to make your plain Jane look stand out. Plus, they keep you warm, so we can say that it’s a total win-win.
- Layers for days.
You can style over clothes without the fuss and you can just take pieces of it whenever there’s a change of weather or maybe a change in your night plan.
Remember: Layering is not about being complicated or overly styled; it’s about outfit combinations that are greater than the sum of their parts.
- Rock those hoodies.
So the hoodie season is back and it signals comfort and style, right? Curate the streetwear look with a hoodie and denim pants and you will be good to go. You can also dress up or dress down depending on your mood because yes, hoodies are so versatile, baby.
- Bring out your dusty leather jacket.
Wear your bikers with some pop of colors or pair them with some bold bottom and you’re sure to stand out from the crowd.
Fall fashion can be very easy but it is always nice to add some spice to it. While summer is a good time to warm up, fall (and all its transition perks) is the best time to up your fashion in a multitude of ways.
So, ready to conquer fall?
