Its that time of year again. I can hear the fallen leaves crunching under my boots, as I walk to class, I suddenly have the feeling to drink and eat anything labeled “pumpkin spice” and weather is just as indecisive as I am in the mornings choosing my outfit for the day. Autumn fashion is my absolute favorite. As the weather undergoes its own metamorphosis, my closet too transforms itself. Gone are the shorts and sandals, opening up the opportunity for comfy sweaters and scarfs perfect for wrapping ones self in. With the change that fall brings, it can become increasingly difficult to dress. Three fall fashion must haves are scarves, sweaters, and boots, and his season has brought a whole new twist on these classic autumn pieces.
Outfit # Tied in a Knot
The necktie had quickly become a trend towards the end of the summer, but the trend continued into fall perfectly. The neck tie adds a perfect amount of interest to an outfit. Additionally, on warm fall days, it tends to get a bit too warm under the thick blanket scarfs. The neck scarf provides the cozy look scarfs do without all the added bulk. I paired the neck scarf with a long, bell sleeved blouse in the same blush pick of the neck scarf. The black skirt pairs perfectly with both the blouse and scarf, and can easily be paired with tights if it is a slightly more chilly morning on that day. I toped off the look with black Chelsea boots that are great for any kind of weather, rain or shine.

Outfit#2 Jumping into Jumpers
Sweater- Forever 21
Sweaters are the quintesssential autumn piece. Nothing is more “fall” than cozying up in a bing sweater, and staying warm in the chilly mornings. This beige sweater is the perfect mix of classic and trendy. The color makes this piece versatile, as it pairs well with many pieces. The classic sweater is reimagined by implying trendy stylistic choices such as the mock neck and the cropped fit. I paired the sweater with light washed ripped jeans and accessorized it with a velvet embroidered choker. The choker uses jewel tones that work perfectly with season.
Outfit #3 Burgundy Boots
Boots are a staple in any autumn wardrobe. Boots are an extremely versatile shoe, especially in the sporadically changing weather during these months. With the threat of rain forever looming over us at any second, to the leaf piles that accumulate everywhere, these boots are sure to keep your toes warm and dry, as well as protected from the fall leaves. Make sure that your boots are water resistant from optimal protection. I choice this Burgundy pair to match the color palate of the season. The jacket perfectly showcases the fall foliage, and the amazing colors that instantly make us think of the season. I chose the black overall dress to add a trendy flare to the look.

Fall it a time of change, and transformation, and with that, we each have a opportunity to shed out of our summer wear and into all things comfy and cozy. All three of the outfits are sure to do so, taking the classics, and breathing new life into it.
