Cool nights and crisp mornings. Changing leaves. Warm cinnamon scents wafting from the oven. Pumpkin patches, hay bales, and scarecrow decorations.
Fall is here.
Fall is one of my favorite seasons because all of the above and then more. It’s family time, wrapping up in a cozy blanket, flannel everything, the best desserts and breads, sweaters, and rich colors. The colors are something to write home about. As the leaves of the trees transition from green to vibrant gold, red, and orange, so do the clothes I like to wear. Out are my summer whites and blues, and in come burgundy, plum, dark greens, mustard, and camel. The fall season is short, and so is the fall color palette (I never feel right wearing fall colors after Christmas).
Besides colors, fall brings a preppy and equestrian vibe to my style. Whether it’s reminiscing about my back to school days or falling into the east coast style, I am drawn towards trousers, polished button downs under sweaters, loafers, quilted jackets, and riding boots.
If you’re looking to bring richer colors and textures to your closet this fall, take a look at some of the pieces below. They are classic and affordable (but the trousers are a splurge!).
