While I know minimalism has its merits, I fully embrace all the details when it comes to outfits in the fall. Summer is hot and sticky—the less on your body, the better. But fall? Give me all the layers, all the textures, all the embellishments, and all the jewel tones. Because there’s just something cozy and chic about it all.
My favorite details with any fall outfit start with texture. Summer is all about loose materials—breezy cottons and relaxed linens. Fall has me pulling for rich velvet textures and cozy eyelash materials. They add a touch of femininity to any outfit. And? Effortlessly elevate even the comfiest of outfits. Like these velvet joggers, this eyelash cardigan, or this velvet purse. Other materials I’m loving are chenille, sherpa, and of course cashmere.
Another detail I love for fall dressing is sparkle. Whether that’s sparkle on my jewelry or clothing or shoes, I’m a fan. Somehow, come fall, wearing things that sparkle is much more acceptable. So, I take full advantage. This season? I’m all about the statement piece. Like these sparkle resin earrings, this crystal wreath necklace, or this tortoise necklace with some shine. Also love sparkle on these heels and these loafers.
Finally, the detail I wait all season for is color. Rich, jewel tones are my favorite. And that includes makeup. I adore a bold lip or a deep colored manicure. Swipe a berry color across your lips and you’ve taken any outfit from drab to fab. A deep red or emerald green polish on your nails makes even the simplest of outfits all the more sophisticated. Urban Decay, NARS, and Mark Jacobs are just a few of the makeup brands I’m shopping this fall—rich hues and high-quality pigments make these items last.
