Yep, I said it. Fall.
Now that summer's most dreaded F-word is out of the way, I will be free to talk about my favorite season - THE FALL. I know everyone says they loooove it, but I swear to you, my personal obsession with autumn is very real. It's the clothing, the fall-themed food, even the scent in the air. All of it.
Although there are many aspects that I love, it's the fashion and trends that most excite me. With that, I bring you my top 5 Fall Must Haves:
1) Patterned Coat
Although I don't consider myself the biggest lover of colored clothing (black & white lovers, unite!), I fell in love with this piece. I find that although the dark red is eye-catching, the black will still allow this piece to work with virtually anything in my black and white dominated wardrobe. You will most likely find me wearing this with a some distressed black denim, or perhaps a pair of liquid leggings. Its thick wooly texture was exactly what I was looking for. This one is the "Pellam" coat from Aritzia.
2) Black Booties
I know, no surprise here. There's something to be said about these fashion staples if EVERYONE has a pair. They're perfect, and can be worn with anything. To spice things up a bit, I'm on the hunt for an edgy pair with cut-outs. Here are a few of my favorite finds:
3) Statement Scarf
I am no newcomer to the scarf game, however, it was last year that I discovered my all time favorite one. The "Diamond Mosiac Blanket Scarf" from Aritzia. These scarves are thick, high quality, and make a statement. Everytime I wear one, I am sure to have someone compliment it. They are $85 CDN, and will last you for a lifetime. My two favorites are pictured below:
4) Dark Lipstick
They say it's not acceptable to wear dark lip colors in the summer months, so I suppose I have been breaking this law all summer long. Now with fall approaching, I can feel at ease knowing that my lips will be accepted, yet again. One of my all time favorites is by MAC, which is called Viva Glam III. It is a matte finish, and is the perfect shade for those who are just starting to venture into the dark lip realm. For the seasoned veterans, I recommend "Train Bleu" by NARS. This color is sure to turn some heads, and in a good way. It is a very deep plum shade, and also has a matte finish.
5) Black Statement Hat
This is a trend that I am still fairly new to, as I am still on the hunt for my perfect hat. It is quite the adventure finding the perfect one, as the hats fit quite different on everyone. I have a few in my collection as of now, but none that I am in LOVE with. Below are some inspiration pictures capturing what I would like to find in my perfect hat.
I hope you enjoyed my first fashion post, and found at least a smidge of fall inspiration!
