Fall Staples that Will Take You into Winter

This season’s most wearable trends will keep you warm while looking stylish right through the winter.

Shearling Outerwear

Shearling, the cozy-as-a-lamb fall staple, is great for staying warm and looking chic. It’s on vest collars, boot cuffs, jackets, and handbags. Our favorite way to wear it is on shearling-lined boots. When the temperature gets colder you can roll the shearling cuffs up to keep the warmth in, and then roll them down when you are feeling more stylish.

Chunky Knits

Always a favorite for fall and winter, this year knits are getting even chunkier. Big collars, speckled patterns, furrier yarns, and sweater dresses are going to define your fall look. Pair them with leggings and boots, and you’ll have an instant hit even on the most blustery of days.

Vibrant Infinity Scarf

One scarf – so many ways! Single loop, basic wrap around, double loop, hooded, capelet, and even as a shawl, the list goes on for the infinite ways the infinity scarf can be worn. Opt for brighter, richer colors to bring a pop of color to neutral outwear.

Sheer Blouses

Take your summer sheer blouses into cooler months by lining them with a lace undershirt. Bell sleeves and funky collars add an updated look to the sheer trend. Also popular for fall are sheer blouses with different patterns built right into the texture or the fabric. Another way to update sheer for the colder season is by layering it under a sweater, furry vest, or beneath a leather jacket.

Wear-Out Sweats

Never before have sweats looked so great. From crop tops, cool geometric patterns, tapered legs, and bold patterns, you might not have to ever change out of this comfort staple! To avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed, it’s great to select a pair that has a bit of detailing and cinched bottoms. You can dress them down with a graphic tee and sneakers, or dress them up with a collared button down blouse and heels.

Knee-High Boots

Thanks to the emerging 1960s trend, these boots are back in fashion and are great for keeping your gams covered all season long. Look for styles that hit right at the knee, and opt for a pair with a bit of color to brighten up your dark fall wardrobe.

Winter Parka

The parka is going to be your versatile wardrobe staple that works for every occasion. Like wear-out-sweats, it can be dressed up or down, all depending on your mood. Coming in an array of materials, make sure to choose one that is appropriate for your climate.
