Today is the first day of fall and I am so ready! I can’t believe how fast the summer went by. But the weather is finally starting to feel like fall so I’m kind of ready for the new season. I’m eager to embrace all the fall wardrobe essentials for the season. When I put this outfit together it just put me right into the fall mood. It’s all the fall essentials from head to toe. So much so that there’s a pumpkin spice latte in that Starbucks cup.
Fall Essentials From Head To Toe
Let’s get into this quintessential fall outfit. Starting with the perfect striped long cardigan. I love it so much and it’s so cozy. I think the length is what works well for me personally. If cardigans are too short for me I feel like they cut me off. This elongates the body and it has nice movement to it so it isn’t bulky or stiff. It’ll be great with a pair of jeans or faux leather leggings. But even a simple black body-hugging dress would go great with it. I’m loving the long cardigan trend and will have a post up soon on all the ways to style this closet essential for fall.

Faux Leather Leggings
Something I reach for a lot come fall are my faux leather leggings. I did a big comparison post on the two most popular brands, SPANX and Commando, here. But I have to tell you, these from LOFT are giving them both a run for their money. They’re definitely different than those two, but I can’t really explain how. They almost feel more like a legging/pant. But still a legging. But not. I can’t describe it. But I will say, I like them! And for the great price point, they’re a good starter faux leather legging if you are on the fence. They run true to size and will definitely be a go-to for fall. Pair with big oversized sweaters, tees and a denim jacket, or a long button down with a blazer. Such a classic!
I love when it turns to fall and the fabrics just change. One of my favorites is all things suede. Suede bags, suede shoes, suede jackets. I love it so much. A suede shoe is something I reach for a lot when I’m dressing for fall. I also just find myself shopping for more suede shoes than leather this time of year. These brown suede stilettos are a closet staple for me and have been around for years. But if you’re not into a stiletto, a suede ankle bootie is also a solid fall wardrobe staple that you’ll get tons of use out of.
