When the first cold breeze strikes your skin, when the leaves start to change color, when you start craving for a Pumpkin Spice latte.. your heart goes YAY..It’s FALL! It’s time to move away from bright summer colors and chiffon florals to mustards, maroons, blues and of course the suedes. From draping the scarfs around the neck, sporting the winter hats, walking down the street in those chic booties and enjoying the delicious pumpkin makeovers, we love autumn don’t we 🙂
Watching closely the latest trends at NYFW, I decided to steal the looks straight from the ramp and carry it to the street. Here are the fall must haves you need to get NOW!
Suede Booties – Be it a stroll with your dog in the park, a romantic walk with your partner or a coffee date with your BFF, you always want to get out of your home in those comfy ankle boots. Ankle boots come in zillion styles and colors. Pick the one that suits you the most. I decided to go with 2015’s “It” color from H&M. What do you think about them FAB or DRAB?

Wool Hats – From banded fedoras to wide-brimmed hats, I can’t get enough of these wool toppers. If you have straight hair or natural curls, these hats give a cool look to your attire. Personally, I love the combination of curls and hats. Just style your hair with long beach curls and bring your curls to life with a fedora hat! We all know the winter is all about neutral colors, spice up your neutrals with a maroon or a mustard hat.
While winter hats come in many shapes and styles, always go for Fedoras, Homburgs and Bowlers hats for formal occasions. Keep Pork Pies for semi-formals and Flat Caps for casual affairs.

Fall Drapes – When fall comes, scarves are the perfect accessory. Be it a soft cardigan, a classy dress or a plain t-shirt, the scarf always completes the look. Plaid is the ultimate fall print – from skirts to shorts to pants to scarves. The very second I saw this scarf with all my favorite fall colors, thought to myself – “It’s a smart investment”.
Blanket scarf is the popular pick for the season. Drape it over your shoulders or wrap it around your neck, tie in a knot or use it as a shawl making it your snuggle buddy 🙂

Faux Fur Clutch Bag- Nothing says fall like a faux bag. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the faux fur clutch bags and they were a complete hit at the #NYFW this year. I usually match the color of my clutch with the shoes I am wearing contrasting with my dress color. Luckily, I found this bag matching perfectly with my new booties.
Rule of Thumb – Correctly coordinate the color of your clutch with either your outfit or scarf or shoe. You could play the contrasting color game with the clutch and your dress OR flatter a vibrant colored clutch if you are wearing muted colors for the day.
See how my favorite colors of the season are blending together for a complete look.
Oversized Cozy Sweaters- FALL Morning Routine, snuggle myself into these baggy wool blankets, sip cuppa coffee and stare at this gorgeous city through my window. Can’t get enough of this view!! I heart these oversized sweaters as I can get many looks with just one perfect sweater. Either rock it with some shorts to look sexy or leather jeggings with heeled boots to standout in a party!!
Chic Sunglasses- Oh Wait! You need to wait for my next blog to see them with my FIRST FALL Outfit!!
And now when I have all my fall must haves in my wardrobe, want to catch up over a Pumpkin Spice Latte 😉
