Fall Bucket List: Time for a Wardrobe Change

Every season should come with a list of fun things to do! If you were to make a bucket list for fall, what would be on your list? Even though September 23 is the official first day of autumn, it's never too early to make your bucket list--which is exactly what we've done!
While there are many great ideas on our list, this month we're going to settle on a few of them and go deeper with you. And what would be more appropriate for me since I love fall, fall colors, and clothes?! You guessed it: updating your fall wardrobe! As the leaves begin to change colors and it gets cooler outside, it's time to bid farewell to our breezy summer attire and welcome the cozy and chic fall wardrobe.
Transitioning your closet for the autumn season doesn't have to be a daunting task. In fact, a few strategic updates can effortlessly elevate your style and keep you feeling warm and fashionable. Here are a few ideas to consider when updating your fall wardrobe:
  • Layer Up with Versatile Pieces~
    • Fall is synonymous with layering. To make the most of your fall wardrobe, invest in versatile layering pieces like lightweight sweaters, long-sleeve tees, and neutral-colored cardigans. These pieces can be mixed and matched to create a variety of stylish looks.
    • A classic denim jacket is another must-have for fall. Its timeless appeal and ability to pair seamlessly with dresses, skirts, and jeans make it a valuable addition to your closet. Additionally, consider adding a stylish trench coat or a tailored blazer for a more polished look. These outerwear options not only keep you cozy but also add sophistication to your outfits.

    • Embrace Earthy Tones and Rich Textures~
      • Fall is all about embracing the warm and earthy color palette that nature offers during this season. Update your wardrobe with hues like deep burgundy, olive green, mustard, burnt orange, and warm browns. Oh, how I love these colors!

      • Incorporate rich textures into your fall wardrobe. Think cozy knits, (click the above pic for more details) plush corduroy, and soft suede. These fabrics not only add depth and interest to your outfits but also provide the warmth you need as the temperatures drop. A pair of suede ankle boots or a chunky knit scarf can instantly elevate your fall look while keeping you snug.

    • Accessorize for Autumn Flair~
      • Accessories are the finishing touches that can transform a simple outfit into a statement ensemble. In the fall, don't forget to accessorize with pieces that complement the season. I love a stylish wide-brimmed hat, which not only adds flair to your look but also provides protection from the cool breeze.
      • Scarves are a versatile accessory that can be worn in various ways, from draping them around your neck to using them as shawls. Choose scarves in warm colors and interesting patterns to add a pop of fall flavor to your wardrobe.
      • And, of course, don't underestimate the power of well-chosen jewelry, like chunky bracelets or a statement necklace, to complete your autumn look.
      • I must add that this is such a fun season to change your nails to the darker fall colors–so much fun! Add a cute fall design to your nails for a little flair.

      Updating your fall wardrobe is an enjoyable opportunity to embrace the changing season with style and grace. So, open your closet, take an inventory, and welcome the season with a refreshed and fabulous fall wardrobe from The Wreath Stand.

      Happy fall, y'all!
