8 ways to dress up your fall wardrobe


Fall is finally here!
I am so excited that it is finally fall because it is my favorite season. I just love the chilly weather, the beautiful colors, the jackets, the scarves, the boots, the good tv shows, the holidays, just everything! I love dressing up for fall with coats and boots and scarves so I thought I would help you out with a few tips on how to change your spring wardrobe to a fall wardrobe.

1. Coats
When the weather starts getting cold you might want to add a coat to your wardrobe, especially if you live in colder climates. Coats not only keep you warm but they make you look fabulous as well. You can wear a coat with pretty much anything, even with a dress or a skirt. Coats are very versatile and if you invest in a good one they will last you a long time, trust me you won't regret it. I would choose a neutral color coat so that it can match with any outfit you put together. My top four favorite coat colors are black, gray, military green, and khaki or tan.

2. Cardigans/sweaters
Cardigans are great clothing pieces to layer under coats or on top of other shirts for added warmth. Sweaters are not so great for layering but they are great to keep you warm as well. Cardigans are a little bit thinner than sweaters, which is why they are great for layering. There are so many types of cardigans and sweaters that you are sure to find one that you love.

3.  Jackets
Jackets, unlike coats, are less warm because they are not made of the cozy fleece material that sweaters, cardigans, and coats are made of but they are great layering pieces. They add style to any outfit and make you look very put together even if you just throw it on top of a regular white shirt with jeans. My favorite jacket trends going on right now are leather, military and denim.

4. Scarves
Scarves are great not only to keep warm during the cold seasons but to also add some character and style to your outfits. These will be essential pieces of your fall and winter wardrobe because you can style them a lot of different ways. There are so many choices to choose from: infinity, regular, warm, thin, different colors, etc, so buy them according to the weather where you live. My favorite patterns are plaid, chevron, and leopard.

5. Boots
I love wearing boots during the cold seasons because they look so chic and can make any outfit look sleek. You can wear boots with just about anything including skirts and dresses. There are so many kinds of boots that you will get overwhelmed by all the amazing choices you have. If you don't dare to wear high boots you can also opt for some ankle booties. My favorite colors for the fall season are brown, black, cognac, and taupe (neutral colors).

6. Boot Cuffs
I love wearing boot cuffs, or could also be known as leg warmers except boot cuffs are only for style but don't actually make your feet warm. Letting them peak out of boots looks so cute and adds a little something extra to fall outfits. You can even make your own by cutting off the bottoms of your socks or the sleeves of a sweater if you dare. Other names for these adorable socks are boot toppers, boot socks, ankle warmers, and faux leg warmers.

7. Colored jeans
Colored jeans are always in but the colors that are trending change from season to season. For spring and summer the colors are light, such as mint. For fall and winter however, the colors get darker and they mimic the colors of the fall leaves. Colored jeans are the perfect pop of color for the fall. My color obsessions for this fall are burgundy and olive.

8. Beanies/berets
Beanies are perfect for the fall and winter because if you keep your head warm your whole body will feel warm. They also add a cute element to any of your outfits. You can even wear them as a pop of color if you wear them with neutral outfits. If it gets super cold you can even wear ear muffs but I am not too fond of that trend.
