"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Orange colored leaves, cinnamon tasting drinks and scented candles burning... Oh, impossible not to love Fall! The temperatures are getting lower, the days are getting colder and the clothes are getting warmer. It’s time for a wardrobe update and we totally understand if the change of the season is something that confuses you. Stress not, we’re here to help! I've prepared a list for STYLE Conversations Magazine of essential clothes and accessories that will keep you warm, cozy, and of course, stylish too, the entire season.

The most important tip is that you keep in mind a successful cold-weather wardrobe starts with pieces that offer what fickle temps demand: layers! And Fall is the best season to build the perfect outfit look from timeless items like coats, jumpers and trousers. Let's take a look.

1. THE GREAT SWEATER


It's official sweater-weather when autumn begins in September 22 and a soft and cozy sweater is THE key piece you can style with any other piece of clothes from your wardrobe. For exemple, try to pair a chunky sweater with leggings or a matching skirt and a wool coat and scarf for layering.

If you want to try something different, a pullover is also an essential piece. A pullover turtleneck will go with any bottom in your closet. We recommend a neutral fall color, like beige.
Or keep it trendy and replace the classic sweater with the new fashionistas darling: the sweater-vest. There are a lot of different styles to chose, from those with some texture and detailing, to the plain monochrome cashmere. Also, we love a oversized fit. Try to you layer it over thin shirts and wait for the compliments on your social media!


2. A NICE PAIR OF BOOTS


Yes, ankle boots are still trending in 2021 and classic suede and leather styles are definitely key. Knee-high and over-the-knee boots are also essentials for upping your sartorial game.Try to wear them with a dress or jeans, slouchy or straight - it will instantly elevates any look this season.


3. TIGHT IT UP


There are some staple pieces that will carry you throughout the season and the pantyhose is one of them.
It's the little extra warmth on the legs we need when wearing skirts or dresses, right? Also, pantyhose and shorts are actually a really great combination for a more casual look.
If you're tired of the good old classics like black tights, it's the perfect opportunity to try colored and patterned models.

4. LEATHER ANYTHING


A leather jacket is a classic piece you probably already have in your wardrobe, it's time to take it out for a ride!
Leather pants and shorts are welcome too. Try a soft and soothe leather skirt that can be dressed up or down and we recommend a mid length for the most coverage.


5. COMFY LEGGINGS


The secret to a successful look is feeling great with the new autumn weather. Leggings are all about feeling great and comfortable. They can be worn dressed up or down creating a variety of outfit choices.
Pair them with oversized blazers or a duster coat and black ankle boots to a more dressed-up silhouette. For an effortless look, try them with a cozy pullover, or match the comfy leggings with a fashionable and functional puffer coat to get all the athleisure vibes.


6. FLANNELS


When it comes to fall style, the flannel shirt is a top priority. The shirt is a great layering piece that goes well over anything. Opt for an oversized type for a more fashionable look.


7. A WOOL HAT


If you love hats like we do, fall is your season. Enjoy the most of it wearing the variety of hat styles out there, including beanies, berets, and fedoras.
A hat is the statement piece that will add a bold personal touch to your look. Don't be afraid to match them with the other key wardrobe pieces from our list here.

8. A CLASSIC TRENCH COAT


For the crispy and rainy days, trench coats easily make an everyday outfit more sophisticated and polished becoming one of the most versatile wardrobe essential for the cooler weather.
Choose a long coat that hits just above the ankles for maximum impact.


9. A TAILORED BAG


To complete a flawless fall look you need a perfect bag too.
The options are endless so we recommend to choose an interesting shape in a neutral color. As for the material, a suede handbag with a great textured is always trendy.


10. A COZY KNIT DRESS


One of fall's biggest hits: the knit dress is a stand alone piece that will assure you a more put-together look without compromising comfort.
From the chunkiest types to the chicest and most effortless knit dresses - you are welcome to try the balloon sleeves, turtleneck, and ankle-sweeping styles... We love a midi to maxi length for more leg coverage and a touch of sophistication.

Last but not least... When your feet need a break from all the pair of cool boots you've acquired this season, it's time for a sporty pair of kicks.
