My Favorite Fall Fashion Picks
Here are some of the items I have my sights on for fall. They’re perfect for that “in-between” time of year when it’s not warm, but it’s not yet cold enough for a parka. Let me know what you think!
Trendy Essentials for Fall
The Barefoot Dreams Hooded Cardi is one of my top cozy essentials for fall. It features their signature softness and feels SO good against skin. This one is double-knit so it’s a little heavier in weight, but that also means it’s warmer! And it has a sportier, modern cut as well.
There’s another Barefoot Dreams cardigan that’s a little lighter in weight and a little longer which is ideal for those who want a little more coverage. In my opinion, it’s a must for layering with leggings!
It might just be me… but when I find a good pair of jeans I won’t look back. My absolute favorite brand is NYDJ and there are lots of styles that work for me.
That’s why another fall fashion pick of mine is the Amy Skinny Jeans. They are one of my go-to styles because they’re super versatile and comfortable.
I also love the Alina pull-on and the Ponte Knit leggings… they’re the BEST. I’m talking no pilling and maybe the best leggings I’ve ever worn in terms of fit and look.
The Essentials Pima Cotton Top is one of my all-time fave T-shirts. I love the pima cotton because it truly makes a differene in the softness. It has a flattering 3/4-length sleeve that never seems to short or too long.
It’s one of those investments that will work year-round… lots of colors to choose from too!
I wore the Rip Curl Cruzin Crewneck Sweater on one of my Facebook Live videos and I got a lot of people asking about it. Luckily, I found a link to it online!
It runs bug so you may want to order a size down, but it’s really soft and I love the unique colors. I wouldn’t call it cropped, but it’s not long like a tunic either. It has a relaxed fit and it definitely brings out the California girl in me!
Sweater dresses always seem to make their appearance in the world of fall fashion. Luckily, it’s still trendy in 2020!
I don’t own this Madewell Sweater Dress but it seems like one you could wear time and time again while changing it up with new boots or jewelry every time!
When I want to add something new to my wardrobe I often take a look at some popular “surf” brands because they have a bit of a cool factor. I actually have my eye on this Montauk Stripe Sweater from Rip Curl! Don’t you love the front pocket?
I also discovered a pocket sweater from the same brand. It’s a little boxier but seems like a fall fashion essential that would work well with a pair of leggings or fitted jeans.
Fall Fashion Jackets and Outerwear
I was browsing the QVC site last weekend and stumbled upon this Joan Rivers Quilted Barn Jacket. It’s a total gem and a great option for fall! I adore the quilted pattern because it’s one that will never go out of style.
And the red? A great way to add a pop of color to your outfit!
On Prime Day, I posted a photo of me with some of my favorite cleaning products. Well, a lot of you were interested in the jacket I was wearing as well!
Unfortunately, I purchased it a while ago at TJ Maxx and can’t find the exact style, but this one from Style & Co. looks pretty similar!
That weekly forecast is rarely accurate… so be prepared with this Squall Rain Coat that’s perfect for your fall fashion wardrobe! It’s basic, but it looks like a coat that will keep you protected and warm no matter how crazy the weather gets.
If you live in a cooler climate like me, you might want to invest in a heavier coat starting in November. The Eddie Bauer Light Down Jacket is one of the cutest things I think I’ve seen all season — plus, it’s surprisingly budget-friendly!
The Croft & Barrow Vest can add a whole different dimension to your fall fashion outfit. In my opinion, it’s great for those days where it’s a little cold in the shade but still warm in the sun.
It also has that classic quilted pattern I love!
If you’re trying to upgrade your closet, this Levi’s Leather Jacket may do the trick. It has a modern twist, but you best bet it will be in style for years to come.
Here’s a little secret… it’s actually faux leather but it looks so real, I’m not sure anyone would notice!
Cold Weather Boots and Shoes
I’ve been a Birkenstock fan for over 25 years and for a good reason. Sure, they aren’t always the most stylish but they definitely have good arch support and they come in a bunch of varieties!
The Boston Shearling Birkenstock is a good fall fashion choice because they’re warm and cozy. I purchased my first past last year and they’ve become my go-to house slippers! (I also know they’ll last for years).
I found these boots a few days ago and thought they’d match perfectly with any fall outfit! They’re called the Sam Edelman Neena Boots and they come with the most adorable buckle to spice up your overall look.
If there’s one type of shoe I can’t live without, it’s a slipper. No, I can’t wear them to the beach or to baseball games, but I can’t imagine lounging around my home without a pair!
These ones are from a brand called Earth Origins and they look oh so cozy! They also come in multiple colors so you’re bound to find a pair that fits your personal style.
With the temperamental weather of fall it’s a good idea to have a pair of rain boots in the house. I always recommend the Hunter Rain Boots because they last forever and they stand out in terms of quality.
While they’re a bit more expensive than some, they’ll hold together to help you avoid any surprise puddles.
Accessories and Jewelry
I found the cutest camo scarf from Banana Republic but it’s clear that it was popular — it sold out within a couple of days!
So, I found the Leopard Wood-Cotton Scarf instead. I love the neutral tones because you can pair it with anything from a mustard yellow to a burgundy.
These Smartwool Socks are some of my favorite socks out there because they’re warm but not itchy. Plus, they’re machine-washable, they stay up when you move around and they’re the perfect thickness for wearing with boots.
Nothing spruces up an outfit like a piece of statement jewelry. I don’t own this option, but this Lauren Conrad Necklace is sure to add the right amount of glam to an otherwise basic look.
And don’t be afraid to wear some stylish jewelry pieces with a pair of jeans or a casual outfit — you don’t need to be going anywhere fancy to look your best!
This Banana Republic Leopard Belt caught my eye (and I have it in my bag right now…). I like that it looks young and trendy without being overwhelming and in-your-face.
Can’t forget your masks! These are my favorite — even my husband loves them! They’re from Sanctuary and I’m a huge fan of the quality, the softness and how comfortable they are.
Must-have Loungewear and Pajamas
Sleep shirts are a year-round must. Especially because you can get them in different materials and different sleeve lengths!
I like this one from Nordstrom. It’s called the Moonlight Dream Nightshirt and the spandex-blend material is bound to keep you comfortable throughout the night.
Cute and cozy? Sign me up! I love the look of this Plush Chenille Sleep Pullover because it’s one of those you can wear around the house (instead of just in bed).
It comes in three colors and buyers actually compare it to the more expensive Barefoot Dreams options!
A friend of mine buys a new set of these Target Pajamas every year and I think I know why! Made with modal and spandex, they’re crafted to be super lightweight and soft.
The full-length sleeves and long pants also seem great for the colder months.
A robe is another one of those pieces I call a “closet staple” because a good one will last you a while. I found this Plush Bathrobe from QVC and love that it’s simple and made for both men and women!
If you’ve kept up with the latest trends, you’ll know that joggers are super popular these days. The UGG Jogger Pants are no different — they sit right at the ankle, they’re lightweight and they can be worn in or out of the house!
Other Fall Fashion Items To Check Out
Now that you’ve got your fall fashion wardrobe up-to-date, here are a few more things I found for the season!
I included a “Worth The Splurge” section which features high-quality items that are a little more expensive. I also added a home section with a bunch of cozy finds.
Worth The Splurge
I recommend investing a little more money in genuine leather goods because you can truly tell the difference. The leather typically improves over time and you won’t get the wear and tear you would with brands that neglect quality.
Don’t have a pair of leather boots? I recommend these ones from FRYE! They’re called the Charlie Seam Boot and they crafted with an ultra-smooth finish. Gorgeous!
I know I said I’m listing things that don’t fall into “parka weather” category, but the beautiful color of this coat was just too tempting! The North Face Down Hooded Parka is insulated and filled with comfortable down to keep you warm on those chilly evenings!
Whether you’re a mom trekking around toys and snacks, or you’re a teacher trying to keep her planner and laptop from getting lost, a tote bag is always the way to go. I found this Tory Burch Leather Tote and think that it stands out quality-wise and style-wise.
It’s also timeless so you can use it for years to come!
Cozy Fall Home Items I Love
If you can’t tell by now, I’m a HUGE Barefoot Dreams fan. You really can’t beat the quality and I’ve had some items for over 10 years.
This Barefoot Dreams Throw is similar to my other throw from the company — but this one comes in a beautiful autumn burgundy!
Okay… we still have a little while until the holidays but I couldn’t resist showing you these adorable Martha Stewart Flannel Sheets! They have the cutest pattern and they’re also offered in solid colors, checkers and more.
Since they’re flannel sheets, they’re washable and will keep you warm!
For anyone that gets extra cold when the temps drop, you might want to invest in an electric throw! Most of them offer the ability to control the temperature intensity and the amount of time you want to keep it turned on.
I don’t own this Electric Microplush Throw, but it looks like a comfortable, affordable and easy-to-use option!
Something about Turkish Cotton makes me thrilled to use my towels… I know it sounds a bit silly, but the quality is truly unmatched. This Simply Vera Turkish Cotton Towel Set comes with two bath towels, two had towels and two washcloths!
Have you made the summer-to-winter wardrobe transition yet? If not, hopefully you can add a few of these to your closet!
Even if you have everything you need for fall, you might want to take a closer look at a few of these options for holiday gifts. (Those days will be here before you know it!)
As always, let me know what you want to see in future blog posts. Your feedback is super helpful and I love working together to tackle all our home, cooking and style needs!
