As the leaves change color and the temperature drops, it's time to transition your wardrobe for the coziest and most stylish season of the year – fall. 2023 brings a mix of exciting new fall fashion trends and timeless classics that will elevate your everyday wear. This season is all about embracing quiet luxury, versatile neutrals, and adding a touch of chic to your outfit. I spoke with Jamie Lewin of https://www.vettedmag.com and she shared the following: "For this Fall, every woman should have the key pieces that fit into a Capsule Wardrobe: a blazer, a pair of tailored pants, straight jeans, a button down shirt, and a tank or tee for layering. This Fall is all about creating looks with versatile staples that can take you anywhere and mix back to other pieces in your wardrobe. It also fits into the Quiet Luxury trend where looking chic doesn’t mean looking flashy. And the best part is that you accessorize in so many different ways to dress your look up or down." So, let's explore the best fall fashion trends to update your wardrobe in 2023 - from oversized blazers to cozy sweaters, and how to effortlessly incorporate these trends into your style.
Have Your Style Capsule Ready
There are a few pieces every girl needs for not only the fall season but for every season! To go back to what Jamie Lewin shared and expand on that, here are some timeless pieces you need: a white shirt, a blazer, a pair of tailored pants, straight leg jeans, a button down shirt, and a tank, tee or bodysuit for layering. I would also encourage a black coat as it goes with everything, a great pair of ballet flats and a great pair of ankle boots. I have put together a style capsule on my Amazon Storefront and you can check out those pieces HERE.
Elevate Your Style with the Oversized Blazer
One key fashion trend for Fall 2023 is the oversized blazer. This versatile piece not only keeps you warm but also adds a dash of sophistication to your look. Whether you pair it with jeans and knee boots for a casual day out or throw it over a sweater dress for a night on the town, the oversized blazer is a must-have for this season. You can check out my very favorite Oversized Blazer HERE.
A Leather Jacket is the Perfect Addition to Any Outfit
The leather jacket is a timeless classic that resurfaces each fall with a fresh twist. This year, look for leather jackets in muted tones like deep burgundy, dark greens, or chocolate brown. These earthy colors are a great way to add a touch of warmth to your outfit and perfectly complement the season's color palette. THIS is a great faux leather jacket that comes in a couple of great fall colors!
Quiet Luxury and Neutral Colors Take Center Stage
Quiet luxury is all about embracing understated elegance. This fall, opt for neutral color palettes such as warm beige, soft grey, and creamy white. These tones not only exude sophistication but also allow you to mix and match effortlessly, making it easy to create chic and understated looks. This is definitely the look of the fall season with even big fashion gurus like Saint Laurent, Tory Burch and Stella McCartney capitalizing on this trend even though this trend focuses on logoless fashion. I created a list of quiet luxury on my Amazon Storefront and you can check out those pieces HERE but my favorite online boutique - Pink Lily - also has a Quiet Luxury collection that is gorgeous and you can see that HERE (and the great news is, you get a discount! Use the month plus the number 20 for 20% off. So, for example, if you are looking in October, you would do October20).
Take Fall to New Heights with Knee Boots
Knee boots are a fall staple, and this year, they're back in style. Whether you choose sleek, pointed-toe knee-high boots or chunky, lug-sole versions, they are the perfect companion for those crisp autumn days. Wear them with skinny jeans, pencil skirts, or even under your favorite sweater dress for a trendy yet practical look. I think most would agree that knee boots are the best way to transition those skirts and dresses to fall while looking fashionable and staying warm as the cooler weather sets in! These are my favorite pair of knee boots.
Cozy Sweaters are Closet Staples
Fall wouldn't be complete without cozy sweaters. Opt for oversized knits, cable-knit pullovers, or turtlenecks in earthy shades. Cozy sweaters are the best thing for a fall outfit because they are easy, fashionable and timeless. You can likely keep sweaters from year to year even if you are using sweaters to capitalize on trends like barbiecore pink or preppy style. They are also a great way to add pops of color! Keep in mind, the front tuck is still in and that includes for sweaters this fall. Sweaters are also a perfect opportunity to transition to the colder months in style. Sweaters will still be in for winter fashion trends so you can keep these around for a while which makes them a great investment and addition to your closet!
These sweaters are not only comfortable but also effortlessly stylish, ensuring you stay snug and fashionable throughout the season. You can check out some of my favorite sweaters on my Amazon storefront HERE or check out some perfect sweaters from my favorite online boutique HERE (and the great news is, you get a discount! Use the month plus the number 20 for 20% off. So, for example, if you are looking in October, you would do October20).
A Sweater Dress is an Easy Way to be Warm and Fashionable
A sweater dress is a fantastic addition to your fall wardrobe. It combines the comfort of a sweater with the ease of a dress, making it perfect for both casual outings and more formal occasions. Pair it with your knee boots, and you have an outfit that's both trendy and comfortable. Trench coats or another long coat are also a great way to layer this look as the weather cools if you need it. I love THIS sweater dress.
The Good News is Timeless Classics Never Go Out of Style
Fall fashion is not just about the latest trends; it's also an opportunity to celebrate timeless classics. Your trusty trench coat, a well-fitted pair of jeans, and a high-quality tote bag will always have a place in your fall wardrobe. Add these pieces and the style capsule we talked about early on and no matter what other fall pieces you add, you will be ready to go. These pieces provide a stable foundation for experimenting with new trends.
What Trends Do You Love For Fall?
It is clear that this fall is going to be all about a timeless, classy look and I am not mad about it. I am all about not wasting time or money so things like quiet luxury and the style capsule make it easy to come up with great outfits no matter the occasion and make it easy to carry pieces from one season to the next.
