Three Jackets You Need This Fall

Do you ever get this warm fuzzy feeling in your stomach when you think about something special? I feel that way when I think about fall. I don’t know if it is the hot chocolate getting to me, but I get this gooey feeling whenever I see a leaf fall or a pumpkin roll over. If you think of a cinnamon being pulled apart that is pretty much how I feel on a daily basis. My family puts up a freaking Halloween tree in the month of October. No joke. I’ll do any fall activity that comes my way. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw I carved a pumpkin this past weekend. No worries, this post contains 0% pumpkins. I figured you’re probably sick of seeing them on your feed.

My favorite part about fall is finally being able to wear more layers and, in this case, more jackets. Some people are shoe junkies, I’m a jacket/layer junkie. A jacket can do so much to any outfit by creating a totally different atmosphere. For example, a jean jacket with similar pants made me look feminine and girly, but when I put on this leather jacket I look edgy and mysterious. Sure, my obnoxious smile takes away from the dare devil image I was ‘trying’ to create, but you get the point.

Jackets are an essential for your fall wardrobe. The three vital jackets I have on repeat are: 

Jean Jacket. Style: Sweet, feminine, casual.

Jean jackets are the ultimate staple of the girl next door. The soft hues and lightweight material makes it perfect for day time. Plus, it is by far the easiest thing to throw on a lightweight dress. This is the perfect jacket for those awkward warm fall days. My favorite posts of this jacket are this post and this post.

Suede Jacket. Style: Chic, fashionable, dressy. 

Suede jackets are the perfect in-between day and night jackets. The soft material is perfect for adding extra texture to all of your outfits. This jacket is literally perfect for any fall activity. My favorite looks wearing my favorite suede jacket are this post, this post, and this post.

Leather Jacket. Style: Edgy, mysterious, wild. 

Lastly, jean jackets are the ultimate show stopper jacket. If you want to make an impression go for this harsh textile and turn some heads. This jacket is perfect for transitioning a summer dress to fall or just spicing up a rather bland outfit like this one. I show how to transition a summer dress to fall in this post.

If you really want to push this list, another jacket you should get is a trench coat. Trench coats are extremely versatile and will always remain a classic. Plus, their neutral hue is perfect for the fall weather. Something more trendy would be a fur jacket that has been all the range last fall and this upcoming fall. Plus, it gives you the extra warmth on the colder, fall days.

Without this jacket, this look would have turned out being just a normal striped shirt paired with some colored pants. By throwing on this leather jacket, it has developed a whole new vibe to the look. A daring vibe I’m not used to but slowly adapting to. Plus, who doesn’t love being edgy for a day or two?

5 Trends to Fall in Love With in 2016

Hello darlings! Last week I posted about 5 Trends to leave in 2015 If I somehow ruined your life and you got rid of your 5 favorite trends… here are 5 new ones to get on board with. I mean… that is if you haven’t already fallen in love with them in 2015.

Suede

Sude refers to a type of leather that has as soft, napped finish. Suede can come in many different colors but is most typically a light tan color. Suede is a great addition to your  winter wardrobe because it is a very warm material. It also can add a new texture to your wardrobe and who doesn’t love that?

Leather

Leather is always a fashion yes. You don’t have to get it real and you don’t have to get it fake. It’s your preference and I’m not judging you either way. No matter if you typically dress chic, girly, or edgy there is a type of leather for you. Like suede, I love how it adds a different texture to any outfit. It’s a great material to give your outfit a different dimension. It’s also a great material for going out in.

70’s

You would think this picture is from back in the day… it is actually from Free People’s campaign right now. 2016 is going to be full of mixed prints, chiffon dresses, suede jackets, fur jackets, and all that 70’s fun. I love it. Who doesn’t love a throwback outfit?

Bohemian

I love this trend/style so much! I talked a little bit about it here, but I just can’t get enough of the bohemian look. Not only is it the most comfortable thing ever, but it’s just so darn comfy. I’m a sucker for comfy clothes that look chic at the same time. I love how lace can be paired with funky patterns or even just a lot of chained necklaces giving an outfit a voice. I said it before and I’ll say it again… I just love this style so much!

Fringe

Fringe has been out for a while and it’s here to stay! I love how casual it makes an outfit. It’s a nice addition to the bohemian trend. It’s a great statement piece that can add a lot to an outfit.  Although it is a bohemian piece, it doesn’t always have to be styled that way. For example these pictures show it in an edgy, feminine, and classic way.
