It’s officially fall. That means it’s time for apple scented candles, pumpkin spice lattes, and Halloween movies. For many, fall is a comforting time. It’s when your family gets reunited over a table packed full of warm foods and lots of love. Fall is when you can break out those fuzzy boots, puffy jackets, and stylish denim jeans. Long gone are the store aisles adorned with bright clothing and colorful flowers, warm fall tones and pumpkin scented everything has taken its place. Here is a checklist of 10 essentials you need to get yourself through this fall season.
- A Knit Dress
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to dresses. Swap out your light, flowy dresses for warm, knit ones. A knit dress will keep you comfortable all day long- it’s basically like you’re covered in a stylish blanket. Pair it with a cute leather jacket and a pair of sleek booties and you’ve got yourself a perfect fall outfit.
We liked the way @alysoninwonderland has styled her sweater dresses on her instagram page.
- Darker Toned Lipstick
The fall is the perfect time to break in your new lipstick shades. Darker toned lipstick- like deep reds, auburn, and dark purple- thrive in the cooler weather. Get in the mood for fall by swiping on some darker toned lipstick to match with your cozy fall outfit.
For Fall/Winder 2020 runways were full of playful avant garde makeup with red, berry, and wine shades being most popular. Read more on runway trends here.
We love @natymichele's dark sexy lips and a HOT look.

- Heavier Moisturizer
When the weather gets cold, our skin is the first to show signs. We cover up our bodies when the temperature drops, and it’s important to take the right steps for your skin, too. Switch to a heavier moisturizer that will keep your skin looking plump and glowy all fall long.
Our favorite is Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty. It's super light and extra moisturizing. The best part is it's is very affordable at only $32 for 6oz. Buy yours HERE.
4. A Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are undeniably a staple for the fall They’re perfect for when the weather starts to get cool, but you don’t need to break out your heavy winter jacket quite yet. They keep you warm and looking super stylish. You can style a leather jacket with a plethora of outfits- a pair of baggy jeans and a classic white t-shirt or a cozy knit dress are just a few suggestions.
We love the way @styletomes created a very chic look by combining a textured leather jacket, fishnet stockings and pearl studded heels.
- Body Scrub
Your skin will start to take a toll in the fall, and that is why it is crucial to exfoliate with a good body scrub. Use something that will be gentle on your skin, while still scrubbing away at that dryness and flakiness that no one wants.
We love the Tree Hut scrubs which are affordable, smell great and is free of parabens. You can check out their whole collection HERE.
Not only will booties keep your feet warm throughout the cool fall nights, booties are also super cute. Invest in a durable pair, like the ones with fur on the inside, that will keep your toes cozy all the way into the winter. You definitely don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, however, as there are tons of cute and cozy booties on the market.
We like these cute white booties worn by @JacklynBrenan by #boohoo
- Fall Scented Candles
Don’t even lie to yourself, fall scented candles are one of the best scents ever. I mean, who doesn’t want their house smelling like a concoction of pumpkin pie, spiced apple, and warm vanilla. Treat yourself to some fall scented candles to keep the fall spirit alive throughout your house.
We are loving these fun and classy candles from @sweetwaterdecor
- Pumpkin Spice Food
It might be basic, but pumpkin spice foods are undeniably delicious. Drinking a pumpkin spice coffee is like the entire feeling of fall is left at the tip of your tongue. You can even go beyond just pumpkin spice coffee and treat yourself to pumpkin spice cookies, cereal, and yogurt.
Our favorite fall drink is @starbucks pumpkin spice latte.
- An Oversized Sweater
The fall is when the oversized sweater thrives. Nothing is better than waking up on a cold fall morning and jumping into a cozy oversized sweater. You can find one in just about any store, as they are a wardrobe staple during the fall. Pair an oversized sweater with a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans for a look that’s cute and comfortable.
We love this sweater from @shopNo18
- A Stylish Scarf
Scarves can serve way more use than just keeping you warm during the fall. A stylish scarf can bring a look to a whole new level by making a fashion statement. Choose a patterned scarf to go with a look or choose a bold color that will be sure to turn heads when you walk down the street. Regardless, just make sure to choose one that will keep feeling warm and looking fashionable.
We love our wool/silk shawls in beautiful patterns that are both warm and stylish. Check out all of our cozy shawls HERE.
