Not Your Typical Fall Essentials

Dressing for fall means the temperatures are dropping and it’s time to put on the layers. For this season, we can look forward to longer length dresses and tunics with leggings, pants and cardigans! There’s definitely more possibilities when it comes to dressing for fall. This fall, try out a new trend or something different than you normally do!


Dresses that double as tunics, jumpsuits, and midi sweater dresses are perfect for the fall because of their longer lengths. Pair a shirt dress with leggings for cooler temperatures and throw on a pair of strappy heels or boots for more of a fall feel. This burnt orange jumpsuit from Tobi is the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe. The flowy material adds movement, so you’ll want to strut this piece down every fancy part of town. Layer a black turtleneck or long sleeve underneath instead of wearing a sweater over so you can stay warm and avoid covering up such a statement piece! A sweater dress allows you to wear a dress in the cooler months without freezing. This one has a mock turtleneck, so it’s not as restricting, and an interesting stripe pattern with a pop of color. This piece gives off a 60s feel, so feel free to pair with some mules and a cream long sleeve underneath.

Alas, pants! You might or might not have been wearing shorts and skirts all summer, but here are some essential pieces you should have ready to wear in the fall. An appropriate olive colored jogger screams fall and adds a comfy touch to your outfit. The high waist can accentuate your waist and create a flattering silhouette.
