4 Super Stylish Wardrobe Pieces To Invest In This Fall

How to Integrate Some of the Season’s Best Trends Into Your Existing Wardrobe.

It’s my favorite time of the year. No, not Back to School season or Pumpkin Spiced Latte time (although those are pretty great too). No, my favorite time of the year is when fall fashion starts to appear. Cozy sweaters and knits and plush jackets are popping up online and in stores.

This season there are some trends that I’m so digging! Metallic details. Fringe. Statement jackets. A bit of rocker chic.

But how do you add a dash of the fun current trends without a) Looking like a over styled fashion victim. Or b) buying a whole new wardrobe?

Here’s how. Invest in a few key pieces.

Spend money on a few items that update the pieces you’ve already got hanging in your closet.

Here are the wardrobe pieces to invest in this fall. I’m adding these pieces to totally make my Fall fashion rock.

Here’s a wee little video all about this fall’s key pieces.

1. The Faux Shearling Vest.

I love the look of the shearling vest paired with jeans and this one is cute, flattering and animal friendly. This vest totally works. And I love the longer, more flattering length. I think its more slimming than a shorter vest that hits just below your waist.

I’m going to wear mine with boots worn over a turtleneck and distressed denims for a casual but totally stylish take.

(This shearling vest was just featured in Oprah magazine and Harper’s Bazaar this month, so I’m going to hop over and grab it now before it’s sold out.) 

2. The Pretty Patterned Dress

I have a closet full of solid color dresses in a straight sheath cut. Can’t wait to try out this patterned swingy dress in a knit. I’ll pair with my tried and true black pumps. Perfect for church, school event or nice dinner out.  This dress also comes in a polka dot pattern, another fall trend that’s showing up everywhere. (How cute would this be with ankle boots and tights?)

3. The Statement Jacket

I love the trend of metallic details showing up this season. It gives an outfit a slightly rocker girl edge. I’m so into the dramatic look of this long sweater jacket with grommet details. It comes in this off white or a deep grey.

Pair over black skinny jeans and black ankle boots or one of those black dresses that I already have but need to breathe some fresh life into.

4. Fringed Cape/Scarf

Fringe is appearing everywhere this season. I love adding that edging on a cozy knit wrap. This large scale block color scarf is reversible (red, off white or blue) with a vegan fringe trim.

Great for travel so it gives you two looks in one. How cute would this be with belted over jeans for a tailgate? (Arkansas Razorback fans, the reversible red would be oh so cute to call the hogs in don’t you think?! As a girl from Arkansas I just had to give that shout out!)

    I tend to go more for comfort than I do style. But, I love that fringed cape! I’m trying to up my game, but, it’s slow going!

    I am loving these new trends. My favorite is the Fringed Cape/Scarf. Perfect for those cool Florida nights. I’m not a big sweater wearer but I do love scarves. Need to see if it comes in different colors.

    I like all of them but the fringed cape is my favorite. I would love to add that to my fall wardrobe.

    LOVE the jacket with the metallic accents…it really is a cool way to be on trend but not over the top, and I can see a piece like this being fairly timeless. Thanks for these practical (and pretty) ideas!

  8. says

    I wish I had that shearling vest. IF you buy two I’ll pay you back. I’ve loved capes since I was a little girl and knit myself one. I love them! And fringe. YES. Love that this style returned.
