Update your wardrobe for the season with these 5 fall wardrobe essentials!
I usually dread fall, but this year I’m finding myself looking forward to it! We had a week-long hot spell here in Toronto, and suddenly the thought of pumpkin-scented candles and scarf weather gained a certain appeal.
Right now is a perfect time to start shopping about getting your fall wardrobe essentials. I’ve picked out a fall basics that will take you stylishly into season while being great staples to build your fall & winter wardrobe off of!
1. A Coatigan
Part coat and part cardigan, a coatigan is a must-have fall wardrobe essential. It’s the perfect clothing item for layering during in-between, transitional weather.
Coatigans are light, yet keep you warm and cozy. Plus, looked more polished since they typically have a bit more structure than your regular cardigan.
A solid neutral coloured coatigan in cream, beige or black make great fall basic piece. But it’s also fun to get one with a pattern one to dress up your other plain pieces.

2. Turtleneck Sweater
There’s something about turtlenecks sweaters that just look so chic, not to mention cozy!
A simple turtleneck is a great fall basic that is striking in its simplicity and look so sophisticated on it’s own. That being said, it also makes a great layering piece as well to help make an outfit pop.

3. A Comfy Pair of Jeans
I think of fall as the return of denim season! And it’s a tradition for me to get a pair of jeans with the back-to-school season.
Black is always versatile colour that you can dress up or down, but I love a classic light-medium wash for fall.

4. A Classic Blazer
After a year in sweats, my workwear wardrobe needs an update with a new blazer.
I love one that’s a little oversized, so you can layer it with a turtle neck sweater or something cozy on those cooler days.
You can’t go wrong with a classic black blazer, but for fall I love a camel or tan colour.
5. A Lug Sole Boot
You can’t go wrong with a pair of pointy toe boots (so if don’t already have a pair go for those first). But the boot style I’m loving RN are lug sole boots. I finally purchased a pair the other week and I can’t get enough of them!
They’re great for pairing with dresses and more feminine items to toughen up a look and they add a great streetstyle vibe to any outfit.
Here are a few pairs of boots I’m loving RN:
