Five Fall Essentials That Every Girl Needs

October 7, 2017


The leaves have changed their colours and are slowly beginning their descent to the ground and pumpkin spice is taking over our lives. Which can only mean one thing: Summer is officially over. The transition into Fall is always an exciting time of the year which means that your style game has to follow suit. These five fall essentials will help make your transition into fall, as cool as the October air.



1. Blanket Scarf

    Fall fashion means layers, layers and more layers! A cozy blanket scarf is the 

    perfect accessory to elevate your whole outfit. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing,

    it's also super cozy and keeps you warm and toasty when the temperatures begin

    to drop. Plus they're massive and legitimately double as blankets - perfect for 

    when all you want to do is cuddle. 


This blanket scarf is a cult favourite! It comes in a myriad of colours and styles and is beyond cozy. (Wilfred Diamond Mosaic Blanket $85 - Aritzia)

This plaid blanket scarf from ZARA is a more affordable option but is just as chic and cozy. (Maxi Checked Scarf $39.90 - ZARA)


2. Ankle Booties

    There's nothing like a killer pair of ankle boots during the fall to boost your                  confidence and help you stride in style. Pair them with a pair of distressed jeans        and a tunic top for a casual yet sophisticated look, or throw them on with a 

    bodycon dress for a glam night out on the town.

 This black pair of ankle boots is perfect for fall. The faux suede finish and gold 

 zip detailing add an extra touch to the classic design. Plus the extra chunky block 

 heel makes them super easy to walk in. (Kelii Black Ankle Boot $130 - Aldo)

These purple booties certainly have a classic feel but the crushed velvet finish and gold detailing make them pop. (Biradia Boots $79.99 - Call It Spring)


3. Chunky Sweater 

    A chunky knit sweater is the one item of clothing that will truly never go out of 

    style. With so many styles, colours and textures - there's something for everyone. 

This piece is a modern twist on the classic chunky cable knit sweater with its high turtleneck and unexpected cutout at the neckline. Plus the gorgeous dusty pink colour is right on trend. (Turtle Neck Cut-out Sweater $49.95 - Dynamite)

The simplicity of this rib knit sweater with its slouchy fit makes it incredibly versatile so you can dress it up or down. (Rib-knit Sweater $29.99 - H&M)


4. Leather Biker Jacket

    There's nothing like leather to instantly add some sexy edge to your look. A 

    classic leather biker jacket is an extremely versatile item which any girl can pull off 

    and with virtually any outfit. Although you can never go wrong with the classic            black, shades like burgundy and forest green are just as versatile and look                    equally as chic. Dress it down with jeans and a tee or dress it up with 

    a satin cami and a cute midi skirt. 

 The classic silhouette of this jacket, with its silver hardware will complement any         look. (Faux Leather Biker Jacket $69.90 - ZARA)


Another option is this beautiful forest green jacket, also with silver hardware. The striking colour is the perfect statement piece. (Harriet Faux Leather Vegan Biker Jacket $107 - Boohoo)


5. Bold Lipstick

    Coco Chanel once said, "if you're sad, add more lipstick and attack". She could not 

    be more right. A bold lip can instantly transform your entire look and make you 

    look and feel like a total badass. Fall is the perfect time to try out rich hues like 

    deep berries, reds and mauves. Keep the rest of your makeup clean and simple 

    and let your lips do all the talking. 

 This gorgeous deep berry colour is stunning on a variety of skin tones - plus the

 velvety matte formula is extremely pigmented and lasts all day long. (Sephora     Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in Blackerry Sorbet $18 - Sephora)

If liquid lipsticks aren't your thing then you should definitely check out this stunning deep red lipstick from MAC. Plus, it's part of their Viva Glam range which means that every  cent earned from the sale of the lipstick goes to the MAC Aids Fund. (Viva Glam I Lipstick $22 - MAC Cosmetics)
