Here on the East Coast it is starting to cool right down! I’m talking below 0 temps and that pesky little “-” is starting to show up. The number of times I grabbed for my scarf and gloves this week, let’s just say, I keep them close now.

Since this is really the first full week that Mother Nature has been giving us the cold shoulder (ha-ha), I didn’t really pay attention to fall trends or my fall wardrobe until recently. I even wrote a fun piece for The Lady Like LeopardThe Leopard Print Pieces for Fall That You Need in Your Wardrobe Right Now” (check it out here). But before that, I was still holding on to summer for dear life!

That’s ok though. Fall is my favourite season. So, I’ve decided to pull together my favourite fall looks. Just because you’re layered up in clothing, doesn’t mean that you can’t be stylish too.

Oversized Knit Sweater

Sweater weather is a serious thing. And it’s a thing that I look forward to every single year. Who doesn’t love cozying up in a giant, oversized knit sweater? All the colours, all the knit patterns. Yes please!

The Beret

Hats are having a moment right now and I’m on the hunt. Yes, for a hat. Not just any hat though, the beret. It was the Dior Spring 2018 RTW collection that convinced me about this style of hat. Usually, I stay away from hats, I mean with all my curls. However, the next time I come across a beret, I will definitely be trying it on to see if it fits the bill!

Long Wool Jacket

I have been noticing long wool jackets from several retailers this season, in all colours and prints. I just love a good coat! Once upon a time, I borrowed (borrowed-but never to give back?) a beautiful emerald green wool jacket from my mum. She wasn’t wearing it anymore, so, I added it to my collection. And now, I have no idea where it is (she probably took it back – MUM!). So, my quest for another long wool jacket begins. And did I mention that this particular one was vintage? Heartbreaker.

Puffer Jacket

A true fall/winter staple. It keeps you warm and dry. And I really like that some retailers are getting a little more adventurous with this style of jacket! Go bold with a bright colour or go wild with a playful print!

I hope that you have fun with your wardrobe this season! Stay warm & stay fashionable!

And I want to know, what is your favourite fall trend this year?
