Fall is one of the best seasons of the year. You hear the crunch of fallen leaves under your feet as you walk across campus and trips to the beach are replaced with weekend plans to pick apples and pumpkins. With the change of the season, your closet will soon be full of knits and jeans. Fall brings a new color scheme to our closet, and this year, it’s all about burgundy, navy, green, mustard and gray colors.
Since we still have some heat leftover from summer, lightweight jackets and coats are the perfect pieces to add style and edge to your look.
1. Bomber Jacket
They’re smooth, cozy and look great on everyone. If you’re looking to add a bit of an edge to your fall look, wear a solid color bomber jacket in black, tan or green. The solid colors not only look great in autumn, but they can also be transitional pieces for the winter and spring. Bomber jackets are usually oversized, which means you can wear a hoodie or sweater underneath to keep yourself warm on colder days. Pair a bomber jacket with skinny jeans, a knit sweater, ankle boots and a matching scarf, and you’re set for the perfect apple-picking outfit.
2. Teddy Bear Coat
This is one of my personal favorite items. This trend started last year and the coat should definitely be an item to have in your closet this fall. A teddy bear coat looks exactly as its name describes it to be. It is an oversized coat with the softest faux fur on the outside and is usually tan, chestnut, creme or black. Wearing this makes any outfit look good.
3. Denim Jacket
At first, many people think of a regular structured denim jacket they wear during the spring, but there are all sorts of denim jackets for the fall. Try looking for a denim jacket that is oversized or soft and less structured. Look for white, black or olive green colored jackets. It’s all in the details that can make your denim jacket pop out this fall. You can also look for jackets with a little fray at the bottom, flannel patches or a faux fur collar.
