Welcome, everybody! This is the first of many Stitch Fix style series. Today, we are going to be talking through the 10 fall essentials that you need in your closet to get you ready for everything from holidays, travel plans, and the drop in temperatures.
You always need a vest when you head into fall, and the reason why is that it can keep your core warm while also creating the perfect piece for layering. Throw it on over [00:00:30] a knit, a button-down, or even your favorite cozy sweater. Speaking of which, cozy sweaters are a fall essential for a couple reasons. They’re cozy, they’re warm, and they can go with anything. If you want an update, though, think about something like a lace detail. This adds a little bit of edge, it’s perfect with skinny jeans, or even to throw on with chic trousers or a midi skirt to work.
The third thing that you need in your closet is colored denim. I know that you guys have seen colored denim a few [00:01:00] seasons now, but it’s the perfect way to get out of the rut of wearing your basic dark-wash jeans, and adding a little bit of color to your wardrobe. Not only are they seasonally relevant, but they’re really perky, too. Number four is one of my personal favorites, the sweater-dress. When the weather gets really chilly, you can pair this with tights and an essential like this lightweight trench.
Number five are leggings. Leggings are something that we’ve been talking about for a while [00:01:30] now, considering the athleisure trend is so huge. But we love them in a really beautiful fall color like this burgundy, or something really fun for the gym with this laser cut detail here. Plaid is a seasonal must. Not only is it synonymous with the season, but you can do anything with this guy. You can pair this under the vest that we just spoke to, you can pair it with your colored denim, you can throw it on with leggings on the weekend, when you really just don’t know what to wear and you have to get out the door in a jiffy, and it’s just so [00:02:00] versatile.
Number seven, the cargo jacket. This is something that you will see on every single person in our Stitch Fix office, and there’s a reason why. Not only does it keep you really warm, it’s a great piece for layering over all of the heavy textures that we spoke through here, and it looks great with anything; jeans, a dress, knee-high boots, ankle booties, you name it. This is one of our staple pieces at Stitch Fix.
And, I saved the best for last; accessories. Coming [00:02:30] in at number eight, your ankle boots. We’re going to talk a lot about ankle boots in the future, and there’s a reason why for that, too. You have them in so many variations, from a stacked heel to a more western inspired bootie, to even the flat, super-comfy Chelsea boot. You can wear them with ankle jeans, skinny jeans, something cropped like what I’m wearing right now. The style variations are endless. Number nine is a cross-body bag. I love a cross-body bag for so many reasons. [00:03:00] It gets out of my way, and it keeps everything that I need in one little, tiny compact space. This looks really great with all the essentials that we just named here, and not only that, but try it in an embroidered texture like this for an update to a classic.
And finally, last but not least, we cannot forget our scarves. Textured scarves are something that we not only value for their warmth and softness, but also for their versatility. You can pair this with something super simple like a [00:03:30] T-shirt and a simple knit, or you can take it with you to work. Pair it with a button-down and a pencil skirt, you name it. It’ll keep you warm no matter what.
And that’s all ten. If you guys want to know more about 10 fall essentials, just head to Stitch Fix Style and get in touch with more information. Thank you.
1. Colored Denim
Just like jeans, but with a pop of color! Stock up on the latest hues this fall: olive green, sangria red and camel to get you through the season in style.
Invest in a vest this year and you won’t be disappointed with the versatility of this super staple. Whether it’s a duster, puffer, cargo or shearling version, you can throw it on over everything from your cold shoulder tops to your fall dresses.
3. Chunky Sweater
A chunky knit never goes out of style—and it’s a lifesaver when temps drop, too. Pair them with your favorite pair of jeans or over an A-line skirt and knee-high boots.
4. Plaid Button-up
It’s a plaid, plaid world this fall. Put some plaid in your fall rotation for a look that is synonymous with the season. If you’re a print newbie, try out the trend with just a touch in the form of a cozy scarf.
5. Textured Scarf
Add another layer to your fall look with a textured scarf this season. Autumnal-hues like burgundy, green and a plaid print are perfect for any fall outfit.
6. Fall Dress
Dresses are underrated—after all, they’re as simple an outfit as you’ll ever find. For warmer fall days, wear with a light jacket and ankle boots. For cooler days, layer on the tights and tall boots!
7. Utility Jacket
Don’t underestimate the staying power of a simple cargo or utility jacket this fall. The timeless appeal of an olive anorak or simple jacket will keep you reaching for it again and again to layer over your new trends.
8. Crossbody Bag
Crossbody bags go with every outfit, every season. But this fall, swap a bold handbag for a buttery camel tone to match all of your seasonal ensembles.
9. Ankle Boots
We’ll be pairing ankle booties with skinny jeans and a chunky sweater for most of the season.
10. Sleek Leggings
The athleisure trend is no longer a trend—it’s a way of life. Isn’t it time you jumped on the bandwagon? You can’t go wrong with a solid black pair, but try out an on-trend two-tone pair this season.
Now that you’ve got the hang of fall essentials, it’s time to talk trends. Keep reading to see the fall trends our Stylists can’t stop talking about!
Embroidery is everywhere! Bags, jackets, boots, and even denim are getting that special touch. Embrace the trend by rocking a bomber jacket with some detailed thread work.
Feel organized and stylish everywhere you go with a new purse. Try a seasonal shade like eggplant or olive and make a statement with chain, tassel or pom-pom details.
Keep your style blooming year-round! Reach for dark, fall florals in feminine silhouettes as we head into fall.
While shoulder-baring trends were all the rage for summer, statement sleeves are taking over as we head into the new season. Trade in your tanks for a bell sleeve blouse that provides a little arm candy.
For standout style, add some touching trends to your closet—like anything velvet, pom-poms and ultra-thick knits.
