Investing in Fall Fashion & Beyond
Who agrees with me when I say that fall fashion is the best fashion? If you’re like me, your style is on point from the months of September to November. Believe it or not, fall is right around the corner, and you don’t want to be the last one buying must-haves.
When we think of the fall, there are a few associations you may automatically make—pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween, leaves, and bonfires. However, when it comes to fashion this fall, keep the stereotypes to a minimum. Ditch the plaid button ups and Uggs and start investing in items that can be worn season after season.
Here is what you should invest in before the first leaf changes colors:
Who doesn’t love a leather jacket? It can make a sweet outfit feel sexy and it can give you that extra edge of confidence you need to feel like a bad-ass! A leather jacket is absolutely necessary to any woman’s wardrobe. I mean look at the facts—people beginning with Madonna to Drew Barrymore to Kendall Jenner have all worn leather jackets. This is a timeless piece that will never go out of style and it will always be put to good use.
Lace-up boots will truly never go out of style. For example, back in 1901 Dr. Martens were born and today, in 2018, they are still part of men and women's wardrobes all over the world. Everyone needs boots during autumn so why not find a pair you really love that will stay in style year after year? These classic booties by Stuart Weitzman have an almond shaped toe and a stretch leather shaft for a flexible and cozy fit. I would pair these shoes with your favorite pair of cigarette jeans and a corduroy blazer for a New England inspired look.
Let’s be real… Purses are a woman’s best friend. Even if you aren’t huge into fashion, a good way to warm up to it, is with a statement bag like this suede bag by Gucci. It makes a statement and has enough going on to give you the fashionista stamp of approval. This bag rocks because it comes with a detachable cross-body strap for when you need the extra support. Gucci is a fashion OG and isn't going anywhere. This bag like every Gucci accessory, the bag comes with the iconic green and red stripe, shiny gold-toned hardware, and the double “G.” *heart eyes*
All 3 of the items here—in some variation—have been worn by fashion pioneers and continue to be worn by those women who have followed in their foot steps. Trends come and go but basic essentials last forever. Each item here is a fall classic which means you can wear them every fall season! So what are you waiting for? Be the trend setter and start saving now for these investment pieces.
