5 Blogger-Approved Fall Wardrobe Essentials


Fall has arrived and your wardrobe better watch out because those fall fashion trends are coming in hot! New York Fashion week gave us a behind-the-scenes look at what is to come style-wise this season, but if you haven’t had the opportunity to spruce up your wardrobe with the latest fall trends, there is no need to worry! Keeping your wardrobe up-to-date with the latest styles can be exhausting…and expensive. One day you're obsessing over your new BLANKNYC Distressed Skinny Jeans, and the next day you see that flared jeans (like the Classic 70s Flare Leg Jeans by Vince Camuto) are the new 'it' piece — fashion is almost as hard to keep up with as the latest celebrity divorce! But what exactly SHOULD you go out and spend your money on? You don’t want to purchase a standout fringe vest only to have it sit in the back of your closet, and you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a pair of over the knee boots you’ll only wear once. To set your look apart from the rest (without breaking the bank), we have put together 5 blogger-recommended fall fashion essentials that every woman should have in her wardrobe. Check out what these fashion bloggers had to say and let their fall fashion expertise guide you through the season!


1) Sweater Dresses

I love wearing Sweater dresses in the Fall. Last year I was pregnant and I lived in sweater dresses and in shirt dresses and I am sure it will be the same this Fall. This dress is so comfortable and such a steal! Dresses are just so easy. You don't have to think to much about your outfit. — A Spoonful of Style

As I stomped down the streets of New York the past week during the most stylish time of year {New York Fashion Week}, I noticed several fall worthy trends on days where there was a slight autumn breeze blowing through the air. Sweater Dresses — These are especially perfect for those days in between warm & cold. You can wear flats or booties depending on the temp. — Damsel in Dior

2) Fringe and Suede

This outfit combines two of my favorite Fall trends; suede and fringe. I love to keep my outfits pretty casual and this jacket gave me just the edge I was looking for. The texture from it elevates a simple look that you can pair with a denim and tank combo. — Life With Me

Any well-edited Autumn wardrobe should include a pair of suede flared pants and this Alice + Olivia pair also come in a rich olive green. The retro fabric has me easily swayed (get it) this Fall. — We Wore What

3) Trench Coats

I’m absolutely loving this navy trench coat that looks so effortless and chic paired with dark denim and nude heels. I also love how lightweight it is, so I can wear it in Miami or layer it if I ever were to travel to a colder state. — The Fashionistas Diary

This trench (actually all trench coats!) reminds me of Sherlock. There’s a mysterious-undercover-feel that makes the day more interesting… A secret assignment. A love connection. A naughty thought. A long trench just transports me into a world of secret agents and spies. Because this particular trench is heavily menswear influenced, I wanted to pair it with feminine details. A side braid coupled with a bow shirtdress gives a soft contrast to the oversized coat. — Wendy’s Lookbook

4) Pleated Skirts

…One of the pieces that you must have in your wardrobe is a pleated skirt. Choose it in your favorite length – midi, mini or maxi- and match it with a lace top, a blouse with a bow+sleeveless vest or a turtleneck sweater and…don’t forget the belt! — The Blonde Salad

This pleated skirt is my favorite and I can see it paired with a chunky, oversized sweater back home. It also comes in classic black, which would easily make your essentials list. — Gal Meets Glam

5) Ankle Booties

Fall season is boot season, so I took out my new low ankle booties from SOREL that’ll look killer whether it’s hot, cold, or perfectly in-between. Not only do these booties dress up any outfit, its waterproof leather will also protect from the elements, all in the name of staying chic and comfortable. — Honey & Silk

A good black bootie can go a LONG way and by good I don't mean pricey. I've come to wear black booties more than I wear flats because they go with almost everything, add a little bit of funk, and 99% of the time they're super comfy. — Pursuit of Shoes
