If you live in the South like I do, the hot, steamy, humid weather might mean you haven’t really stocked up on Fall fashions yet. But it’s mid-October. Colder temperatures and the holiday season will arrive soon. I scoured Modcloth, one of my favorite website for unique yet stylish wardrobe pieces, and picked out nine items that will bring your look up to speed for the season. Plus, if you’re a first-time shopper, you can save on your first order.
1. Driftwood The Joy of Embroidery Flared Jeans
Embellished jeans are taking over this season, but many pairs I’ve seen feature embellishments at the top, not always the best look if you like drawing attention away from your hips and thighs. Driftwood The Joy of Embroidery Flared Jeans not only include pretty flower embroidery in a more flattering location, they also feature the hip-balancing flare leg look that’s continuing to make a comeback.
2. Miss L Fire Exquisite in Velvet Embroidered Flat
Also capturing two key Fall trends, the Miss L Fire Exquisite in Velvet Embroidered Flat is a beautiful embellished shoe, a seasonal must-have, and features velvet, which is a trending fabric. Wear these with a dress or skirt as pictured, or with black skinny pants for an Audrey Hepburn inspired look.
3. Collectif Silver Screening Velvet Maxi Dress
I love this Collectif Silver Screening Velvet Maxi Dress. It’s sexy yet comfortable and features velvet, which is a perfect fabric for Fall and the holiday season. I think I’m going to need to order this. Plan to see me in it at all sorts of holiday parties.
4. Collectif Sentimental Twist Belted Jacket
The fabric of this Collectif Sentimental Twist Belted Jacket picks up on the menswear trend that’s big for Fall, but the cut is flattering and feminine. Plus, the fur collar adds a hint of luxury.
Embellished boots are one of the biggest looks for Fall. I particularly love this Matinee Suede Block Heel Bootie because the styling is at the base, making for a touch that will be noticeable under pants or create a sleek line when paired with black tights. Plus, the design has a fun, ’60s-inspired vibe.
6. Stargazing Splendor Blazer in Evening Garden
We tend to think of florals for Spring and Summer, but this year they’re carrying over into Autumn. This Stargazing Splendor Blazer in Evening Garden makes your work look less boring and can also be worn out on weekends.
7. Chi Chi London Exquisite Elegance Lace Dress in Midnight
Another beautiful dress, this Chi Chi London Exquisite Elegance Lace Dress in Midnight made the list because it features lace, another key fabric for Fall, and it would be beautiful alone for holiday parties. However, you could also wear it under a denim jacket for a more casual look. It also comes in six colors and is available from size 2 to 26.
8. Collectif A Wild Back Cropped Cardigan
Animal print is a classic pattern, but it’s particularly in style this Fall and it’s showing up on lots of sweaters. This Collectif A Wild Back Cropped Cardigan is a great execution of the style with fun fur at the collar. Wear it over a little black dress or black top and skinny black pants.
9. I Glam Hardly Believe It Jacket in Black
This I Glam Hardly Believe It Jacket in Black picks up on both the menswear trend and the military trend, plus at only $55 it’s a great deal. It also looks great when worn buttoned or open.
