How wonderful that fall is here! It’s such an amazing time of year here in the Bluegrass, what with football season, Keeneland, and the gorgeous fall foliage Lexington has to offer. It’s also an amazing time to update our fall wardrobes with some key essentials that will carry us well into the winter. Let’s chat up some of fall’s best “must have’s” to get us geared up for the fall season, shall we?
Booties: All of us gals should have at least one solid pair of booties in our shoe arsenal now that we are into fall. Perfectly paired with skinny jeans or even a fun fall frock, booties are surprisingly flattering and keep the tootsies warm when the temps start to dip.
Loafers: Specifically, leopard loafers. I cannot tell you how much I adore these babies and I’m telling you, they are here to stay for the fall. While a ballet flat will always be in style, a loafer is now the new way to sport a flat. I highly recommend snagging a leopard pair as it will give an extra element of detail to your look. Remember, leopard is always a neutral my friends.
Cognac: Grab yourself some cognac. Be it a satchel, such as this beauty from Omar + Elsie, a pair of loafers, booties, or over the knee boots...nothing screams fall like the color of Cognac. It’s such a classic and will, indeed, never go out of style.
Distressed Boyfriends: They’re essential. They’re my new favorite go-to jean. Partly because they add a very laid-back vibe to your look, but mostly because the relaxed fit is ridiculously comfortable.
White Jeans: Yes...’tis true. I’m suggesting we break the rules and bust out white post Labor Day. Think of pairing your whites with chunky knits in neutrals such as camel, gray, navy, or black. It’s a fresh way to wear the whites and will always look crisp and pulled together.
Sneaks: I’ve said it until I’m blue in the face, but I LOVE me a good pair of sneaks. And if it’s a leopard high-top – even better. Not much else needs to be done with your look when sporting a sneaker with a fun detail as they’ll be the focal point of your outfit. Skinnies, whites, or black distressed jeans all complement these Leo Lovelies – and I plan on wearing the heck out of them this fall.
Just remember gang, small tweaks to your closet will no doubt up your wardrobe game. Think accessories, shoes, and jeans when perusing the sites and stores and you’ll indeed be ready to embrace what will hopefully be a gorgeous fall here in the Bluegrass.
