In order to complete the best fall looks this upcoming season, it’s imperative to have a wardrobe with the much-needed fall essentials. A fall wardrobe is an assortment of clothes and accessories that reflect the season’s styles, textures, and colors to create the most chic looks. The best fall clothes offer comfort, warmth, and most importantly, style. Here are the best pieces to have in your closet this fall. 

Black Jeans

Black jeans are the perfect transition pants from summer to fall. When paired with a vintage t-shirt or flannel, it becomes the coolest casual fall outfit. Boyfriend jeans and cargo style pants are in this season, opting for a black pair will be *the most* chic!

Denim Jacket

Denim jackets are a must-have for fall, as it provides comfort and a little bit of warmth, all while looking ridiculously cool. When looking for a denim jacket this fall, try hitting up some vintage shops or search for painted denim jackets on Etsy for a unique look. 

White Sneakers 

For the fall days when it’s still too hot for boots, opt for a white sneaker. The sneaker will look crisp alongside a pair of leggings, dark jeans or even a pair of joggers. While good for fall, these sneakers will provide use year round for the best outfits. 

Wool Coat

A wool duster coat is perfect for once it gets too cold to wear a denim jacket. When it comes to wool coats, the longer (and the slouchier), the better. This is a great piece for both fall and winter. (Winter hack: order a jacket in a bigger size for a relaxed look for fall, but can be worn over a sweatshirt in the winter!)

Your Favorite Hoodie

The most crucial fall must-have is definitely (drumroll, please…) a hoodie. The hoodie can be dressed up or down in so many different ways. Plus, one can simply never have too many hoodies. Whether it be vintage, monochrome, or an old sports hoodie, it can complete any look if styled correctly. 

Crazy Cool Sweaters

A huge trend in fall/winter 2021 is projected to be fun, colorful sweaters. These are sweaters that have a personality all its own. These sweaters are meant to be the statement of the outfit. Something to keep in mind when wearing a fun sweater like this is to make sure that it’s not wearing you!

Sweater Vests

Sweater vests will be all the rage this upcoming season. It’s the perfect piece for when you want some warmth, but don’t feel like wearing a chunky sweater with huge sleeves. The cut of the vest when paired on top of a button-down shirt creates flattering lines within the outfit. 

In addition to these imperative basics for next season, remember that layering, multiple textures and neon colors mixed with neutrals are going to be everywhere this fall. 

Happy (almost) Fall, Y’all! Let the *coolest* fall looks be in your favor.
