Fall Outfit Inspiration

Fall Moodboard

I find myself perplexed about getting dressed when the weather starts to change. I get in this routine of wearing particular items and then just like that they are no longer appropriate. To circumvent this confusion, it takes preparation and thought, hence this inspiration board of outfits I like and things I want to buy for the new season. During the hotter months I’m drawn to bold colors and prints, but for fall/winter I focus more on outerwear (obviously), texture, and tailored separates. Here’s what’s top of mind for my fall wardrobe:

Knitwear: I’m looking for at least three sweaters that I can wear with A-line skirts or high waist trousers. That means they can’t be too bulky to tuck in or they need to be cropped. And because I’m busty they should probably have a v-neck. This sounds like an easy thing to buy, but knitwear is tricky. I don’t want something that pills or that itches or that adds weight to my midsection. I’m considering J. Crew, but I will probably browse some department stores and Century 21 as well.

Patent leather skirt: I love shiny patent fabric paired with a cozy knit. ASOS has this skirt (worn above in a pumpkin color by Sea of Shoes’ Jane Aldridge) that will fill this void. I just wish it wasn’t midi length.

Flight jacket: I like the sporty element of an olive flight jacket paired with trousers or feminine dresses.

Acne Rita moto jacket: I’ve been tracking this jacket for a couple years now and the time has come to actually buy it. It’s the perfect streamlined moto jacket that will go with everything.

Fur coat: I don’t own any fur jackets but I come across them often while vintage shopping. I’m leaning towards a a black one that hits  just below the waist.

Prada lug sole booties and Sigerson Morrison studded booties: Part of me wants to wear a clunky, combat-like boot with a lug sole, while another part of me wants to wear a single sole bootie with a thin heel and pointy toe.

Trousers: All I want to wear now are cropped, tailored trousers.

Colors: I never wear white during the winter, but it feels really fresh to me now. I like how Leandra Medine styled white with olive and ivory. I’m not sure if I will buy white skinny jeans or a pair of white trousers, but I want to wear white with ever outfit. I’m also going to introduce baby pink into my fall wardrobe. It will look good with navy, black, and charcoal grey, colors I wear often during fall.
