Fall Fashion Essentials You Need This Season!
Fall is one of my favourite seasons. The leaves start to turn to bright and vibrant colours, there are endless pumpkin spice pickings everywhere and there is a slight chill in the air that facilitates the need to wear cute and warm fall fashion.
In fact, I think that fashion is one of the best things about this season! I prefer the tights, boots and knit-sweaters but, whether you go for layering tanks and tees or sporting casual dresses, there’s something truly gratifying about putting together the perfect fall outfit.
I had the chance to head to Walmart and shop for the latest fashion essentials from their private apparel line, George. I decided to put a few outfits together that are casual, cozy and perfect for the mom on-the-go. I used a couple of staple items that can be interchangeable and that help give you a new look while keeping cost down.
While I like getting dolled up every once in a while, I much prefer casual clothes that can keep up with me and still be fashionable. I do love getting key items that can dress up your basics. Luckily at Walmart, you can find affordable essentials for less and that will suit every kind of style!
Grab those leggings and that comfortable printed tee! Pair it with a gorgeous and cozy knit sweater and you’ve got a polished look. I chose a monochromatic look and used variations of grey. The George leggings are one of my favourite items; they are super affordable at $7.97 and can be worn with pretty much anything. George had these super cute asymmetrical printed tees with moleskin backs that are not only trendy but, soft and comfy.
I finished the look with my favourite pair of strapped combat boots, a silver clutch, a grey suede choker with silver triangles from Walmart, triangle earring studs from Walmart, a silver ring with an onyx gem and of course, my Apple watch and iPhone. Finish with your favourite pair of sunnies and you’re good to go!
Layers and a Pop of Colour!
As you can see, I love darker tones but with that said, I do enjoy adding small pieces that give my outfit a pop of colour. That’s why I paired my favourite George leggings and dark grey knit cardigan with a cold-shoulder shirt and my favourite chunky teal necklace. I love the idea of layering, since early mornings can be chilly and then during the day it tends to warm up. During the evening the temperature drops and you crave warmth of your layers again. Wrapping yourself in a fuzzy sweater does the trick. Hit the town for your daily errands with your favourite laced canvas boots; comfy and stylin’!
Use the George leggings and dark grey knit cardigan to make another look! Wear a soft moleskin printed tee, a native-inspired necklace, silver ring with a maroon gem, simple black watch and triangle earring studs. I bought these brown moccasins at Walmart too and they really complete the outfit. Again, the layers help with the changing temperatures of a fall day- the outfit just works!
Get Your Fall Looks for Less!
Fall is the best season for fashion, in my humble opinion. You don’t have to pay a fortune to look stylish and polished. If you aren’t into darker tones like me, you can find lots of classic jewel tones this season at Walmart as well.
Wearing a statement knit-sweater in different colours and layering an outfit can make a world of difference. You can swap tees, boots and accessories to play up or play down your looks. I picked up my George dark grey knit cardigan from Walmart for $29.97 and I can use it to complement various outfits!
