The New Fall Uniform

The New Fall Uniform

Pumpkin spice. Oversized scarves. Boots, bonfires and endless filtered Insta pics. Cue the start of our favorite time of year—FALL. Maybe it’s the pumpkin-flavored everything or the crisp autumn breeze, but the season has got us feeling all kinds of basic (and we’re not even mad about it). While the typical fall uniform has never steered us wrong, we freshened up our go-to cozy looks with some of our favorite new trends. So ditch those oversized scarves and bring on the oversized sweaters and jackets!

Keep fall casual with a big chunky sweater or a boyfriend-style denim jacket. Take your sweater from day-to-night by pairing it with faux leather leggings, or elevate a jacket by tossing it over a dress.

Move that boring white tee to the back of your closet and turn up the volume with eye-catching sleeves. Bell, ruffled and tied sleeves are totally trending rn. Whether you add the trend to a blouse or warm it up with a sweater or sweatshirt, you honestly can’t go wrong. Sleeves not your thing? Add some cool girl style with a vintage-inspired graphic tee.

Denim is obviously a must all year round. But what’s making denim different this season is more authentic distressing and embroidered details.

Fall is giving us some major feels (literally!). Add some texture to your #OOTD with like-leather pieces, sumptuous velvet fabrics or sheer mesh.

The last piece to the new fall uniform (but obviously the most important), SHOES. Step up your shoe game with some killer new styles. Think luxe velvet, metallic shine and cool embroidery that will make a statement. (Can you say #SHOEGOALS?!)
