Fall Favourites

Happy Thanksgiving everyone (or everyone from Canada)! In my books, this is the true beginning of fall and as the season is upon us, it's time to switch up our summer wardrobe and bring out the layers and try out some new colours schemes. So, here is my list of what my fall favourites or essentials are for this year.

Jewel Toned Jeans
Last season, primary colours were in for the summer and fall. This season, it's all about the jewel tones. I am obsessed with maroon, emerald, and amethyst tone jeans. I recently picked up maroon skinnies (for a mere $20 which I am VERY happy about) and I can't wait to dress them up with a chiffon top or button down and dress them down with a chunky grey sweater and military jacket.

Utility/Military Jacket
These jackets have been in style since last fall and it doesn't seem like they're going anywhere for a while. I wear my utility jacket almost everyday. You can pair it jeans, leggings, a leather skirt... Pretty much anything! It's probably the most versatile piece in your wardrobe for fall and the beginning of winter. 

Combat Boots
Steve Madden Troopa Mid Shaft Flat Heel Boots
Combat boots are my biggest essential for any season, but especially for fall and winter. If you want to toughen up a look, these are the first things you should think of and they totally make you look like a bad ass. You can wear them with any type of bottom and still look good.

If you're like me and you have a bad hair day 99% of the time, hats are a must own. And as the air around us gets chillier, beanies are my go to for those days when your hair just needs to be hidden. You can pair beanies with anything to dress down your look.

Denim Shirt
Western Denim Shirt
Denim shirts have always been in style (anyone heard of a Canadian tuxedo? Haha), but the way they are styled has changed. I am huge fan of denim shirts that are studded, buttoned up to the collar, and tucked into high-waisted pants or a leather skirt. If you want to make the look a little more schoolboy-esque, add a bowtie. Plain denim shirts are good as an extra layer. You can wear it with a graphic, plain or striped tee and black jeans, pants or leggings. 

Disco Pants
I recently have purchased these and I am already obsessed with them. They hug you in all the right places and make your butt and legs look amazing. But the best thing about disco pants are that they are extremely versatile. You can dress them down with a crop top, jacket and combat boots or you can dress them up with a tucked in button up and sandal wedges. They are quite pricey but I highly recommend spending the money on them because you will want to wear them with everything.

So there are some of my favourite fall items for this season. I hope I can inspire some of you to try them out for yourself!
