Fall Favorites

First style post, wheeeeeeeeee! What do you wear when all your Halloween themed denim jumpers are in the wash (I’m lookin’ at you, third grade teachers)? It doesn’t matter much as long as you accessorize well. Here are what I consider to be staples for your fall wardrobe. Ready go!

1. Scarves. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one accessory, it should be a scarf (no utility belts, that’s cheating). My personal favorite right now is this Old Navy infinity scarf for about $15. This bright red hue is a compliment waiting — no, begging to happen.

 


2. Boots. 
They are a must. I’m a fatty, so finding something to fit my calves is a real challenge. Speaking of which, did they ever use that as a challenge on Biggest Loser? Anyway, the Zodiac Plies boot from DSW online is comfortable, stylish, versatile, and if they could talk I’m sure they’d be humble, too. Originally $170 down to $60! GO NOW.



3. Jackets.
So jackets maybe aren’t so much an “accessory.” JUST GO WITH IT. This one from Fashion Bug (I KNOW, RIGHT?) is hovering around $50, so keep your eyes peeled for sales. A structured jacket like this is an obvious mate for jeans, but I’ve already worn it with this dress (from Torrid) and the brown version of the Zodiac boot. Oh did I mention that was with colored tights? BOOM.

 

4. Tights. Speaking of tights, WHERE MY LADIES AT? In my opinion (and it’s the one that counts, check the url), a girl can never have too many varieties of tights. Solid tights, patterned tights, textured tights, I WANT THEM ALL. Where do I get them? Primarily from WeLoveColors.com.

They carry tights for fatties in all the same colors as they do for skinny b*tches! They have some cheaper ones for $9, but I tend to go for the $15 option. I think they are less susceptible to unwanted stretching. Added bonus: $5 flat shipping fee. 


Yeah, you love colors. WE FRIGGIN’ GET IT ALREADY.

 

There you have it, my picks for the fall of 2011. What are your favorite items for this time of year? Leave ‘em in the comments! I’M COUNTING ON YOU.
