Fall is the perfect season for fashion because the temperature is just right, so you don’t have to bundle up to stay warm or dress down to keep cool. You can get away with suede boots or a denim jacket, and it’s fun to dress in layers with beautiful colours of burgundies and golden yellows. To know the latest trends for this season, look at our list of wardrobe essentials for fall 2020.
The Thigh-High Boot
You heard it right: thigh-high boots are back, with a vengeance. If you’re feeling nostalgic for that late 1960s mod vibe, then you’re in luck. Thigh-high boots were strolling down runways for Balenciaga, Victoria Beckham, and so many more for fall 2020 fashion weeks worldwide. Such elegant boots come in many different styles, and you can turn any outfit into a sophisticated look by putting on a pair. You can dress up jeans, a long skirt, or dress pants with the right pair of thigh-highs. Look through your favourite style websites before deciding on a style that suits you before visiting your local shopping centre.
Nothing says fall fashion quite like a cozy, chunky knit sweater. What better way to stay warm on a chilly autumn afternoon in the park than by putting on an oversized cashmere sweater? Check out your nearest Nordstrom for some of the latest trends in oversized knits, and be sure to find online flyers for your favourite stores — you never know when a sale will pop up, so stay in the loop! Find a website that provides all the hot tips on your favourite stores and brands. A chunky knit is a fantastic find, and it’s even better when it’s on sale!
You’ve probably heard of the pantsuit — and probably own a set or two — but this year, designers decided to feminize that classic look with the skirt-suit. The skirt-suit (a monochrome ensemble of an ankle-length skirt and matching jacket) is the ideal outfit to wear to that important meeting — whether via Zoom or IRL —, a first date, or a socially-distant friend gathering. You’ll steal the show wherever you are because you’ll look amazing.
A Faux-Fur Tote Bag
Do you have about 50 canvas tote bags lying in your closet? You might be tired of that boring, everyday style.Add some glam to your everyday tote with some faux-fur. Find a neutral colour to match most of your autumn colours, such as beige or taupe. The right bag will fit all of your daily necessities such as keys, wallet, and phone, and you can even use it as a laptop carrier. A faux-fur tote is calling your name at your town’s Top Shop or Claire’s.
A Plaid, Double-Breasted Blazer
Channel your inner Annie Hall and sport the quintessential fall accessory, the plaid double-breasted blazer. You can throw the blazer on top of just about anything, and you’ll exude classic sophistication wherever you go.
With these items, you’ll be all set for the fall season. Don’t forget to check online about hours, locations, and sales before you hit those shopping malls.
