As the nights grow crisp, the strong urge to cozy up by the fireplace with a throw blanket and a great book, is often accompanied by the overwhelming desire for a wardrobe refresh. So, without delay, let’s bid a tearful farewell to the burnt days of summer, pack away our cotton beach dresses, and embrace the only season where it’s officially encouraged to wear cardigans, flannels, and oversized sweaters.
There are some eclectic colors on the fall runway this season, which is a diversion from the more muted colorways we have seen in the past. Fuchsia is a popular color this season, perhaps a lingering influence from the incredible Valentino shows in the S/S runway shows earlier this year. Sticking with our 2022 love of green, sage is a must-have color this fall, and taupe is a definite wardrobe essential. If, like us, perusing outfit options online is now your favorite way to shop, to assist you, we have compiled a list of options that encompass the latest trending wardrobe essentials this fall.
Imagine That Boutique
If you’re a girly girl, a natural girl, or you simply love a variety of elegant and flattering looks, we have the perfect pick for you. Stocking some delightful brands which include Simply Southern, Vineyard Vines, Struttin’ Cotton, Blue Q, and Bogg Bag, Imagine That Boutique offers a charming mix of the best fall looks which hit the sweet point of quality at an affordable price. Their website offers a variety of fall colors and style choices, including feminine dresses, chunky knits, everyday tees, and fuchsia puffer jackets.
A timeless classic that immediately grabbed our attention is the sweater that can be worn on any occasion. That would be the Southern Classic Cloud Sweater in Burnt Taupe, which, at $79, is well worth the investment. It’s effortlessly chic, providing the perfect look for an outing with friends, a stroll through the countryside with your boyfriend, or lunch with the family. This is a wardrobe staple which can be worn anywhere, hence why it might be the featured piece in the fall collection.
We also love the Color Block Leather Blazer at a well-priced $91.99. A versatile piece, this can be thrown over a knit dress for an upmarket brunch, but with the right accessories, it can easily double as a classy jacket, paired with tailored pants and boots, to complete the look on those crisp fall evenings.
Our favorite chunky knit is the cable knit cardigan available in a mouth-watering olive or charcoal colorway and retailing at $52.99. Wear it around the house, down to the store, or walking the dog. It’s the perfect lazy day accessory, adding a touch of style to any outfit.
If you’re looking for a more unisex, grungy fall wardrobe update, we have the place for you. Affiliated with The Banana Republic, Athletica, and Old Navy, The Gap provides a true homage to the late nineties with their fall lineup, offering an extensive range of corduroy, faux leather, and slim jeans. Embracing an alternative palette of seasonal colors, The Gap fall line includes a colorway of grey, black, and sable, with a hint of fuchsia.
Our favorite look from the Gap range is the High Rise Corduroy Vintage Slim Jeans with Washwell, truly an ode to the late nineties and the nostalgia of grunge. These jeans are easy to navigate with any outfit and would look great under a chunky knit.
If you’re going for the full vintage revival this season, don’t forget the Corduroy Bucket Hat for $31, which comes in a range of colors, including sable brown, mistletoe green, cobblestone beige, and true black.
For a more feminine take on The Gap’s seasonal offerings, you can’t go past their Corduroy Puff Mini Dress, which is adorable in hollyhock purple and retails at $71.
If you’re after a preppie look for the fall season, that’s still within budget, Uniqlo has you covered. Offering a range of lambswool turtleneck sweaters, tailored coats, and crew necks, they guarantee a range of understated but stylish sophistication.
Personally, we love the Premium Lambswool Crewneck Long-Sleeve Dress, available in beige, green, and dark grey, and priced at $59.90. It’s the perfect day-night dress as it can be easily dressed up or down depending on your choice of shoes and accessories.
Another favorite look from this collection is the unisex Utility Short Blouson at $129.90, which comes in blue and olive and can be thrown over any outfit, to add a touch of style and an often-needed extra layer of warmth.
And if you’re after a fall jacket that goes with practically any outfit, you can’t get past the Single-Breasted Coat, available in brown and blue. Retailing once again, at $129.90, this stylish addition to your fall wardrobe is casual but classic, making it an easy accessory for every occasion.
If you’ve got the staples for the fall wardrobe adequately covered but are after one final splurge on that perfect seasonal evening dress, you can’t go past Farfetched. Offering a wide selection of designer dresses ranging from Zimmerman to Michael Kors, Balmain, and Gucci, you have a choice of this season’s runway looks at your fingertips. Encompassing a plethora of colors and styles, the price point for the mini dresses from designers such as Jacqeumus starts at around $250, with the gowns from Saint Laurent and Valentino going in excess of $4000. We hope you liked our selection of fall outfits. What are some of your favorite looks for the season?
