My personal favorite season—Fall—is here and I’m so ready for the crunchy leaves, warm fires, and hot chocolate. Another favorite part? The color scheme. Muted colors and earthy-tones are my go-to when it comes to… practically anything. I also live for the chunky sweaters and patterns, as you’ll see below.

My first favorite is probably everyone’s favorite: the chunky sweater. It’s a cute, comfy, and versatile piece that works in every season (at least, in Minnesota it does!) and matches everything. I love to pair a mustard yellow, maroon, or forest green oversized sweater with a pair of leggings or boldly colored/printed pants. Another favorite is a shining white sweater that stands out against the colorful fall atmosphere.
Another favorite, and a classic, is plaid. While I definitely don’t own enough plaid, I really love the trend. I’ve found that American Eagle has a *huge* variety of plaid, in both the men and women sections! Their variety of color, material, and thickness is almost overwhelming, but I love that there are so many options. I like to pair plaid with black leggings (basic, yes), a puffer vest, and a pair of tall boots or uggs.
Can I get an “Amen!” for cardigans? These open sweaters are perfect for dressing up any outfit or staying warm and cozy on chilly days. I own probably 10(ish) cardigans, and I constantly wear them. Black, grey, grey marl, light grey, dark grey, and maroon are the colors of cardigans I have… And yes, I really need 4 grey cardigans! However, my favorite is my chenille maroon cardigan from Target! It’s trendy and cute, warm, and affordable. I think cardigans are the perfect addition to practically any outfit. It’s an easy way to go from day to night in less than 5 minutes.
Sure, you probably wore overalls as a kid. But did you know that they are *just* as stylish as an adult? It’s true! I got my perfect pair of skinny overalls from Francesca’s, and while they’re too warm to wear in the summertime, I expect them to be just right for fall. Pairing the overalls with a plaid button down, cropped tee, or a chunky sweater for really cold days makes for the perfect outfit.
Okay, while I technically don’t own any statement pants (not including my pastel pink pants!), I saw the cutest pair at Forever 21 a few weeks ago and I was instantly in love. Needless to say, I’m planning on buying a pair. I love patterned pants, such as stripes and minimalist styles. I think pairing statement pants with chunky sweaters and a pair of booties is the way to go.
Booties (& Uggs)
Ahh. One of the many reasons Fall is my favorite time of the year is because I can bring out my Uggs. And yes, I do actually wear them out of my apartment! I love Uggs and booties for many reasons. Not only are they comfortable, but they are versatile and can match many different styles of outfits. I tend to wear Uggs on my more relaxing days and will pair them with some leggings and a long sleeve or a button down shirt. To dress up an outfit, I tend to go with a brown pair of booties.
I’ve been loving scrunchies for years now. Not only are they practical for my thick hair, but they spice up an outfit super easily. I wear scrunchies year round, but I like to stick to more earthy-tones during the fall seasons. You’ll catch me rockin’ a maroon, black, or army green scrunchie on most days.
