Closet Update: The Essentials for Fall

Closet Update: The Essentials for Fall

Fall is fast approaching, and the catwalks are now filling with a gorgeous selection of textures and patterns ready to create new looks for the new season. You may still be posting your summer holiday photos on social media, but it’s time to get ready for one of the most style-conscious seasons of the year. From tweed to leather, get ready to fill your closet with statement pieces and timeless classics, all while keeping cozy as the leaves start to fall. If you’re stuck for inspiration for what to wear during these chillier months, look no further than our handpicked selection of the best fall/winter 2019 looks.


Jeans for Every Occasion


Wide-legged jeans have slowly been entering fashion consciousness over the past few years, and if you thought that boyfriend jeans were as baggy as you were willing to go, think again. This season’s jeans are all about width. Create dramatic width everywhere you go with flared jeans for evenings out, side-splits for dates and days out and cropped wide-leg jeans for afternoons in the park.


It may seem unorthodox to wear jeans to work, but trouser jeans are changing the no-jeans-at-work rule that many people uphold. Trouser jeans are jeans that are shaped like smart suit pants, and you can wear them in a variety of ways. They usually just look like dark blue pants – with the comfort and durability of denim!


Suit Up


Every single New York catwalk features at least one gorgeously tapered suit. Whether you choose a boxy black blazer with matching cigarette pants or Clueless-inspired bright yellow tartan, as long as it’s a suit, you’ll be ahead of the trend. Suits don’t need to be boring or serious, there have been a wide variety of playful colored suits that will make you look like you’ve just walked straight off a fall 2019 runway and into work. This androgynous style is here to stay, so it is worth investing in a statement suit that is well-tailored and long-lasting. Here are a few suit style ideas that are popular this season:


  • Monochrome tartan
  • Briefcase accessories
  • Blush tones
  • Feminine shoes
  • Neon hues


Scottish Tweed


British style is making a comeback this season, and the epitome of British fashion is undoubtedly tweed. This supple texture will keep you warm all winter long while ensuring that you look fabulous wherever you go. It is advisable that you choose high-quality tweed rather than an imitation that will wear quickly and look unflattering, and Scottish tweed is the best quality that you can buy.


Tweed isn’t just limited to jackets and coats; tweed skirts and trousers will also look gorgeous with a supple turtle neck and a pair of ankle boots. If you are looking for a more subtle outfit, you could consider a tweed cap or purse to accessorize your fall wardrobe.


Moody Florals


This is welcome news for people who love floral patterns and don’t want to confine them to the summer months: this trend consists of pairing traditional floral prints with plum and navy hues rather than pastel or vivid shades. To create a stunning outfit with deep florals, you can combine them with the “material of the moment” which is leather, of course. A leather jacket with a dark floral dress and a pair of dark grey thigh-high boots is an on-trend fall look that will turn heads and ensure that all eyes stay on your outfit. From wearing a hint of floral as a headband or scarf to a full-length dress, this is a stunning look for day and night.


When you are pairing your moody florals with leather, you should get creative: leather pants and skirts have been extremely popular on this season’s catwalks. You are not just limited to black leather, either. Fortunately for thrifty shoppers, if you look in many vintage stores, you will be able to find a vast array of leather clothing from previous decades that has now come back into style. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing real leather, there are hundreds of faux leather alternatives to make sure that you won’t miss out on this hot fashion trend.


All Weather Coat


The past few falls have been characterized by one thing: unpredictability. When it is too sunny to wear a parka but too cold to go without a jacket, you need to invest in a good all weather coat. Trench coats are the perfect solution to cross-season fashion because they are rainproof and warm while being suitable for business meetings and smart occasions. You can layer up under your trench to stay cozy, too. One of the most prominent fashion houses, Trench London, offers a selection of high-quality coats that will protect your favorite fall sweater from the elements with ease.


One top tip for picking the perfect fall coat is to opt for a colorful or light choice. That way, you can add a touch of vibrancy and color to any outfit while keeping warm at the same time!


Maxi Dress


Elegant, flowing, and flattering – it is impossible to dislike the maxi dress. The fact that maxi dresses are on the catwalks and on-trend for fall is one of the best pieces of news a fashion lover could ask for. The maxi dress is here to stay. However, fall maxi dresses are not the same as summer maxi dresses. Fall maxi dresses are defined by long sleeves and deep hues instead of flashy prints and exposed busts.


Fall maxi dresses work brilliantly with a pair of ankle boots and a faux fur jacket. Alternatively, if you prefer a boho chic style you can pair your maxi with a pair of walking boots and a parka – if you get cold, one top style tip is to wear a roll-neck sweater or a t-shirt underneath your dress.


There you have it: all the essentials you will need this fall. Now it’s time to get inspired for this season’s hottest colors, textures, and styles.
