Raid My Closet: Seven Fall 2018 Favorites

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.

Chunky Sweaters

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.

Statement Pants

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.
