Want to add some flair to your fall wardrobe? We asked some local fashionistas to open their closets and share some of their favorite fall items.
ITEM: Vintage Distressed Levi’s 501 Jeans
OBTAINED: Passport Vintage
ABOUT IT: My absolute favorite jeans from the best source for vintage denim, Passport Vintage. I wear them with almost everything and they are the most comfortable pair of bottoms I own. You can never go wrong with a classic pair of vintage Levi’s 501s!
ITEM: Everyday Dress, Oversized, Cotton in Indigo
OBTAINED: Miranda Bennett Studio
ABOUT IT: This dress is so versatile and can be worn during any season. I wear it around the house in my bare feet, to business meetings with sandals, or out to nice dinners with heels. It’s also extremely flattering for being oversized and the draping falls along my figure in all the right places.
ITEM: Lightweight vintage Burberry scarf
ABOUT IT: When it comes to fall outfitting in Texas, layering with lightweight pieces is an effortless way to transition your wardrobe. A quintessential and neutral accessory like a lightweight scarf is a wardrobe staple that you can repurpose year-over-year and from season-to-season. MOSS is my favorite stop for getting my hands on darling and designer thrifts—each piece having a special story behind them.
ITEM: BLANK NYC Suede Moto Jacket
ABOUT IT: Smooth and oh so stylish! This moto jacket is perfect to pair with your favorite denims or throw over a sundress for a more edgy look.
ITEM: FRAME Le Oversized Cuffed Jeans
ABOUT IT: The loose fit is still incredibly sleek. I love these with a tucked in button-up top. Add some height with super high heels.
ITEM: Everly Floral Print Romper
OBTAINED: Pom Pom Fashion
ABOUT IT: I love that here in Austin we can easily transition our summer wardrobe to fall by simply switching up a few key accessories and adding light layers. Case in point: this darling green floral romper from Pom Pom Fashion. The floral print is perfect for summer, but the bold colors are also fitting for fall. I have already worn this romper for a date night and out for brunch with the girls, and plan on wearing it with tan booties and a cozy cardigan as the temperatures start to drop.
ITEM: Madewell Fleet Jacket
ABOUT IT: This Madewell utility jacket is one of the most versatile pieces in my closet and is a constant go-to. The olive color can easily be paired with various outfits and adds a chic finishing touch to a casual one. It is the perfect layering piece for your transitional wardrobe as the seasons change. I take it with me to the office, to a movie at the Drafthouse, on the plane, and on the occasional chilly mornings and evenings. It’s totally worth the investment!
ITEM: Stuart Weitzman booties
ABOUT IT: I love a classic bootie for fall, especially suede ones! These booties are what I most recently added to my closet for fall. They are perfect for work due to the short block heel—can wear them all day! They are also great for with jeans for date night or weekends.
ITEM: Vince chunky knit sweater
OBTAINED: Neiman Marcus
ABOUT IT: This sweater is perfect for throwing on as an extra layer with jeans or styling with short suede skirts. I love items that can be worn with a variety of outfits—and keep you warm in the fall!
