{Fashion Monday} Fall Fashion Basics

Fall Fashion Basics to me is a having these pieces of clothing in your Fall/Autumn wardrobe. Those who know me know I change-up my closet per season and declutter every 6 weeks. Changing up your closet doesn’t mean buying new items all the time. Most of the time is just means repurposing some clothes from summer to fit into fall by layering. Then clothes from winter might require removing the extra layer from insider.

For me personally I believe Fall Fashion Basics should be in every woman’s closet (not an expert on men’s closets). I believe in having certain basics throughout the year that can easily transition from season to season. I can guarantee 90% of you have the basics in your closet and wont need to purchase new clothes.

Fall Fashion Basics

Living in England, I am always kept on my toes in terms of the weather by being ready for any sudden changes. Because of our temperamental weather, you can accurately conclude us Brits are always ready at a moments notice. We don’t leave our homes without an umbrella and sometimes sunglasses because we know at any moment we might need them.

The following items are what I think are Fall Fashion Basics:

Scarf – Sometimes you don’t need warmer outwear but just a scarf. I know what when the weather is nippy but not too cold, by covering my neck I am able to preserve some heat and I stay warm enough.

Boots – In climates like the UK you definitely need to have some boots. I mentioned in my Autumn Must Have boots what types boots one should have for fall. Fall weather is between summer and winter, you want boots that are warm enough but wont have you sweating.

Sweater/Cardigan/Jumper – these are essential pieces to own. It’s not yet time to wear our thick winter coats and jackets, we still have some level of sunshine. But the sunshine is not enough to walk around with bare arms hence the Sweater/Cardigan/Jumper.

Though I rarely wear gloves, they are very handy to have during fall and winter. Because I rarely used them, I rarely pack them in my handbag but do have them at home.

Finally a beanie, an essential item to have in the closet. Ladies, remember the hair you did all morning to walk out only for it to be ruined? Ya well, a beanie might save you some hassle.

What are some of your Fall Fashion Basics?

    I take all of these as my essentials as well especially in cold places. I really like that brown tone, it goes well with everything IMO and doesn’t try to stand out that much.

    I actually love everything you’ve included here. I’d wear it all, except the hat – not because I don’t like it, but because I always look like a bit of a twit in hats! 😉 x

    I’m a UK-er too and also never leave my house without these warm essentials. I’ve got a cold at the moment so I’m wearing every layer I can find haha. Lovely set of colours you’ve chosen that are perfect for autumn 🙂

    • October 28, 2016 / 11:16 am

      Hahaha, I have been enjoying layering lately too. Hope you get over your cold soon

  9. October 27, 2016 / 3:31 pm

    I also live in England and I never leave my home without a scarf in autumn. Even if during the day the weather might be mild, in the morning and in the evening it’s necessary and it looks good too.

    • October 28, 2016 / 11:16 am

      That is so true, I am the same

  10. October 27, 2016 / 2:22 am

    My black skinny jeans are a fall favorite. I love booties too. I never wear scarves though here in Florida. TOO hot! 😉

    • October 27, 2016 / 5:08 am

      Thanks Liz

  16. October 25, 2016 / 10:09 pm

    Concise, but on point! I have finally accepted that Summer has come to an end and I need to break out some items. Just this past weekend I’ve had to wear a scarf and some booties. Sigh. The good thing is I can finally binge out on dark lips and nails again.

    • October 26, 2016 / 12:31 am

      Hahaha always a positive side with everything

    I love scarves, and they make a great accessory as you can combine them with so many outfits. Fall is a great time to experiment with new accessories and clothes.

    • October 25, 2016 / 12:45 pm

      That is so true, they are so versatile

  25. October 25, 2016 / 8:58 am

    I need to get more scarves and beanies for the season. You have inspired me to get on with it.

    • October 25, 2016 / 12:45 pm

    Those boots are gorgeous! And that sweater…I’d live in it! (Posting for Jay Simms)

    • October 25, 2016 / 6:40 am

      It sure is isn’t it, I love sweaters

  28. October 25, 2016 / 5:36 am

    Hahaha that is true I should have added the umbrella 🌂 too

  29. October 25, 2016 / 5:35 am

    October 25, 2016 / 4:09 am

    The beanie and the boots are so awesome along with the sweater. I am going to have to check these out for sure. Scarfs are something I have just started wearing last year too. Thanks for sharing the tips and items.

    Gorgeous, I love the tan color palette and those gloves are dreamy! 🙂

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:30 am

      I know right!! Thanks

  33. October 25, 2016 / 3:30 am

    Those clothes are soo freaking cute. In Phoenix, AZ we only have 2 types of weather. Hotter than hell, and mild. Unfortunately I rarely have the chance to break out the sweaters or the beanies. But if I ever go to England, I will definitely remember the scarf and umbrella.

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:31 am

      I so wish we could trend weather, I will take hot as hell over colder than artic any day lol

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:31 am

      Oh really! The unpredictability of the weather annoys me more than anything lol

  34. October 25, 2016 / 2:12 am

    Those colours just call out Autumn 🙂 will have to pass this onto my partner I think she will LOVE that beanie!

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:31 am

    Fall fashion is my absolute favorite – the colors, patterns, and fabrics! I adore this look, that sweater is adorable.

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:32 am

    October 25, 2016 / 12:18 am

    Jeans and sweaters and boots for me are a must and as of last year dark red hair and dark red lips not sure what my deal is with them but they are my thing now lol

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:33 am

      Hahahha I love dark red lips, it’s my thing too

  39. October 24, 2016 / 11:51 pm

    I already brought my boots out for fall but it hasn’t been cool enough to wear them yet. I like your choices. I should really pick out a fall scarf!

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:33 am

      Thanks Liz, for us it’s way past cool and dipping into freezing lol

  40. October 24, 2016 / 11:50 pm

    Fall really is my favorite season. I love the style selection you shared it, perfect for Fall. I think neutral colors in Fall, but by far am not a fashion guru.

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:34 am

      Thanks so much, no fashion guru here either lol

  41. Kita Bryant
    October 24, 2016 / 11:47 pm

    I would pretty much wear ALL of that. Stinking adorable right down to the puff ball hat! haha

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:34 am

      HAHaha I do

  42. October 24, 2016 / 11:18 pm

    I love fall. Today while driving to work I was hoping that we should have 360 days of fall and 5 days of summer. 🙂

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:38 pm

      Aaah no! Lol 😂 I can’t deal wth the cold weather

  49. October 24, 2016 / 6:54 pm

    Fall is definitely my favorite seasn. I love all the sweaters and boots and cozy clothing. I actually will be buying another pair of boots this year.

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:38 pm

      Ooh hope you find a lovely warm and stylish pair

  50. October 24, 2016 / 6:42 pm

    Our fall here is still short season. These would be perfect for winter herel

      That is true it’s a short season

  53. Jodie Whitham
    October 24, 2016 / 4:26 pm

    Lovely post! It’s nice to see a post that’s not just making me sad that I can’t afford things, but helping you utilise what you have already 🙂

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:36 pm

      I am glad to hear that and I know the feeling

  54. October 24, 2016 / 4:10 pm

    I need some sweaters. I live in a warm climate and we only actually need sweaters for a month or two but I don’t have any and think they’re so cute. I always end up in a t shirt with a hoodie. So not fashionable. I need to go shopping!

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:36 pm

      So jealous of that type of climate

  55. Chei Pangan
    October 24, 2016 / 3:58 pm

    I love this outfit! I need some nice fall clothes. Most of my stuff is really old and out of date! I might need to do a little shopping.

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:35 pm

      Perfect excuse to update your wardrobe

  57. October 24, 2016 / 3:03 pm

    I live in DC and so all of these items are needed. I only wear a beanie during snow. I hate hat hair. Lol

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:35 pm

      Hahaha tell me about it but braids usually save me

  58. Marysa
    October 24, 2016 / 2:24 pm

    I live in Upstate NY, so a good fall wardrobe is a must! I love these ideas, the styles and the colors. I think I need to accept that cold weather is really here!

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:35 pm

      You and are me both on that acceptance lol

  59. October 24, 2016 / 1:46 pm

    Nice stuff! I like the colors too. I always enjoy wearing sweaters during the fall. I should look into a beanie, although normally I look weird in hats.

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:34 pm

      Beanies look good on everyone I think lol

  60. Joanna
    October 24, 2016 / 1:42 pm

    A warm knitted jumper and boots are a must for this time of year. I love the colours you have picked out definitely autumnal

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:34 pm

      Thanks Joanna, boots are jumpers definitely must haves

  61. October 24, 2016 / 1:04 pm

    It’s time for boots and warm knitted items. It’s really a good time to be fashionable since you can play with more layers.

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:34 pm

      So true, I don’t like layering but I hate the cold more

  62. Alli Smith
    October 24, 2016 / 12:28 pm

    It’s finally cold enough for me to pull out my boots. I tend to have way too many, so I don’t think I’ll be purchasing any this season . . . except for that pair of short boots I saw a few days ago. 🙂 I love that you declutter your closet every six weeks. I need to start doing that.

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:33 pm

      I was thinking the same thing, apart from items already on the way no more purchasing for me

  63. Clairejustineo
    October 24, 2016 / 9:27 am

    I love this colour theme. Beautiful pieces. I would love to wear this whole look 🙂

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:32 pm

      Thanks Claire, except for the jeans I do wear it to wear

  64. Laura Dove
    October 24, 2016 / 8:58 am

    You’re so organised!! I am freezing all year round so this time of year my essential is a very big, warm winter coat!!

    • October 24, 2016 / 11:32 pm

      Aww thanks, I hate freezing hence why I organise my clothes
