Must-Have Fall Fashion Looks!
The trees are changing and the weather is starting to get cooler and along with the changing weather, we start to bring out clothes that are comfortable and cozy. It never hurts if they are super trendy too! Bring on pumpkin spice everything and fall fashion threads!
Fall is my favorite season for the very reason that the outfits equal comfort. It’s warm during the day and it gets cooler in the evening and dressing for the weather means that you can layer every day. A light t-shirt or long-sleeve hoodie during the day and a jacket or wool-knit sweater at night.
There’s also jackets, sneakers, skinnies, hoodies, scarves, beanies, fun jewellery, snap-backs and more that can be worked into fall fashion looks that you’ll love and totally must have.
Most of you may know Darasak as my husband but, he is also a big contributor to this site. Another thing you may not know is that we have very similar styles when it comes to fashion. While we enjoy getting dressed up, we both feel most confident in a pair of skinnies or casual chinos, a pair of Vans sneakers, a trendy jacket and all different types of accessories to finish the look. It also depends on what we are going to be doing that day!
What can we say? We dress to impress but, we like functionality too. One thing is for sure, we love playing with monochromatic looks and adding pops of color when we feel like it. But, most importantly, we are both HUGE on shoes. I think we both are a bit embarrassed on how many pairs we both actually own and to be honest, we do have to fight for closet space sometimes.
The older we’ve gotten; we feel more at home with a more casual look. That means shoes that are comfortable, well-made and let’s face it, that look awesome. With age, we’ve also come to appreciate the quality that name brands provide. That’s why we look to Union Jack Boots for the best and well-known brands we love and trust. There, you can find brands like Converse, Dr. Martens, Timberland, Blundstone, Kodiak, Palladium, Juju and Vans, of course.
Darasak styled his pair of Vans Mesh ISO 1.5 mesh shoes (you can get them for women too) with a black long sleeved-shirt with a hoodie, black casual chinos with drawstring and elastic ankles, his favorite leather motorcycle jacket and dark grey ankle socks to add to the monochromatic look. He finished with his Apple watch on his wrist and Ray Ban’s in his jacket pocket. Now you can really see why fall is our favorite time of year! To showcase the most ‘must-have’ items to put together a fabulous outfit, I’ve put compiled two outfits to help inspire you to create your own look!
A Flash of Red!
This is my typical outfit when I am out and about, I can’t guarantee this look during pick-up at school though! I’ll admit, I do love yoga pants! But, this look is compiled of so many pieces that I simply adore. I have to say, some of my favorite pieces are the Kate Spade wallet, the MAC palette and the Vans snap-back. You can’t go wrong with the Vans side stripe design on those sneakers too. But, all of them are amazing, right?
Jewellry can make an outfit too. For that, I’ve chosen triangle accessories, a leather cuff and I’ve included make-up that is natural but, with a strong red lip. Of course, I included eye liner to create THE perfect cat-eye!
A Touch of Blue!
This is another layered look for the gents and sneaker heads out there! Nothing more comfortable than a fleece hoodie, warm beanie and a touch of blue to bring any outfit to life. Of course, sneaker heads rejoice with the lightweight Vans too. The Vans back pack will hold everything you need while you’re out and about and the Burberry cologne will have you smelling and feeling like a million bucks!
There you have it folks, now you have a little inspiration to dress for the season. Make sure you check out my collections above. Plus, if you’re looking for a new pair of sneaks, don’t forget to peep what Union Jack Boots has to offer.
