Leaves changing colors, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, layers, rainy days, pies...yep Fall is right around the corner and you know what that means...wardrobe change!

There are probably an infinite number of ways to style a military jacket, which is why I think it's one of those things you just gotta have in your closet. You can dress it casually with a t-shirt, jeans and boots, or dress it up with a collared shirt, black skinnies and heels. You could even pair it with a dress; if you want to dress casually just wear a casual dress and sandals, if you want to dress it up wear a more formal dress, add some accessories and pair it with some nice sandals or heels.

I know you're probably thinking...'thank you captain obvious,' but that's why I put sweaters in my essentials! It's difficult to get through Fall without a nice comfy sweater...probably why they call it sweater weather. (; Anywhoo...sweaters work like military jackets in that you can dress them both casually and dressy, depending on your mood that day. Need some more ideas on sweater outfits? Click here or here!
I'm not much of an accessory person but scarves are a must for my fall wardrobe. Chunky scarves are my favorite but honestly, any scarves look great during Fall/Winter. They can add a lot to a simple outfit, in my opinion.
I don't own any statement necklaces but I do think, like scarves, they can really add a lot to an outfit. Not sure how to style scarves or statement necklaces? No problem! If you wanna learn how to style scarves click here and to style necklaces you can click here.
Another staple for any fall closet would have to be ankle boots! You can pair them with jeans, shorts, dresses...almost anything! Knee-high boots are also popular during Fall/Winter, but I feel like ankle boots are more versatile, in that you have more outfit options. Need help styling ankle boots? Click here!
If you're not much of a sweater person, I 'd suggest going with cardigans! They're comfy, cozy, and you can pair them with almost any outfit. Are you starting to get why I chose these essentials? (; Cardigans come in all sorts of materials but my favorite would have to be knit cardigans. They look nice and they actually keep you warm! If you want to see how to style cardigans click here!
I absolutely love dresses in the fall! Even though all the ones above are paired with scarves, you could easily slap a statement necklace on, add a blazer and have a super nice outfit! You can probably tell how I like to dress up my dresses: cardigan, scarf, tights and ankle boots. (; Wanna see other ways to style dresses for fall? Click here or here!
