Fall Fashion Must Haves

Fall is the best time of year for fashion. Everything about it screams comfy and cozy. The scarves, cardigans, boots, I love it all. I can’t get enough of it. With the exception of one, I own every single one of these pieces. Here are some of my fall fashion must haves.

10 Fall Fashion Must Haves // The Krystal Diaries

1. Booties

Everyone needs a cute pair of booties. They’re so easy to dress up or down, wear with jeans, leggings or dresses. Naturalizer makes some of the comfiest boots ever. I can walk around in these all day long.

2. Quilted Tote

I love Kate Spade bags. They are always just so adorable and classic without breaking the bank. A quilted tote is a fall fashion must have. The quilted pattern is just so incredibly fall. IT reminds me of a cozy quilted blanket. I have this bag in white with black, which is sold out, but Kate Spade still has this style in all black.

3. Blanket Scarf

I personally believe one can never own too many scarves. Scarves are a great way to change up and outfit or add pop to a plain t-shirt. Blanket scarves are a must have for because they can be worn like a normal scarf or I can wrap myself up in them and keep warm. The pattern and color of this Treasure & Bond scarf is classic fall style.

4. Black Skinny Jeans

Lately, I gravitate towards my black skinny jeans more and more. I don’t have a business professional dress code anymore at work but on some days I still want to look professional without actually wearing suit pants and black skinny jeans are way easier to dress up than normal jeans.

5. Ponchos

Staying warm is a priority during these cooler months. I throw this BP poncho over my thinner shirts to keep cozy. The plaid pattern also brings me back to my Catholic school days.

6. Soft Cardigans

If you’re new here, then you may not know just how much I love cardigans. This BP cardigan is the softest one I have ever owned. I’m all about layering when the mornings are cold; afternoons are warm and the nights are chilly. I shared my new favorite cardigan on Instagram last week.

7. Knit Sweaters

The weather is still fluctuating a little too much here in New York but in a week or so it will definitely be cool enough all day long to bust out the cute knit sweaters. Sweaters like this make it so easy to stay warm.

8. Riding Boots

I love pairing my riding boots with thick socks and black skinny jeans or leggings. These are another Naturalizer pair I own and yet another pair of their boots I can walk all day in.

9. Quilted Jacket

Again, a quilt pattern. I just really like it. This L.L. Bean jacket is thin enough to keep from feeling claustrophobic but thick enough to stay warm and wear layers underneath. Bonus, it’s way cheaper than some other jackets out there. I just can’t bring myself to spend $600 on a certain quilted jacket.

10. Cashmere Wrap

This is the one fall must have I’m lusting after. It’s just so soft! Maybe I’ll be adding this to my fall collection soon.

These are my favorite fall fashion pieces, and I’ll be wearing them over and over. Now that my company has changed their dress code, so long business professional, I can wear just about anything, and I’m so excited to wear blanket scarves, ponchos, cute boots every single day.

What are some of your fall fashion must haves?

  1. I actually don’t own any black skinny jeans – what am I doing with my life?! 😉 I actually used to, but *thankfully* I lost quite a bit of weight so they’re going to Goodwill. I need some in my life, otherwise I just wear leggings all winter! It would be nice to have nice, black skinnies that I can wear with regular sweaters and blouses that aren’t long enough for leggings. Love this list!

  3. Totally agree with all of these! I love my quilted jacket, it’s lasted me through many Winters and still is a classic.

    I’m all about soft cardigans in the fall. The weather is moderate enough here in NC that I can usually get away with them all winter as well!

  27. Booties and scarfs are a must for me, even we don’t have fall season here in the Philippines (but we have monsoon, which is kind of cold sometimes). I love your selections here!

  33. I definitely agree with booties. I love dressing them up or down. They just make outfits work. I also enjoy dark lips. I get to binge on them without people looking at me like I’m crazy.

  34. For me, skinny jeans and some boots are a must. It’s what I am living in at the moment.
