Oh Fall, the season when I suddenly feel the need to pin every tall boot, cozy sweater and blazer I see in fashion posts and websites. But then the reality comes that I don’t need to spend exorbitant amounts of money on most of these trendy, cozy, non-investment fashion items.
Luckily one of my best friends works at LOFT, a store that has become a reliable store and website for seasonal items both classic and trendy. Liz is far more fashionable than me, so over the years she has done a great job sending me emails and texts with her recommended items. This year, instead of relying on random texts, I asked her to put together a list of favorites in advance of my day of shopping in Dallas. I love her style and ended up buying eight of these items. Hopefully these inspire your next shopping trip too!
Better yet, right now, LOFT is having a 40% off sale on their website!
Here’s the list she provided, along with her color commentary.
Coatigan – This item needs no introduction. It’s so super comfy, you will see me wearing this over everything this fall.
Relaxed Dolman T – This is the perfect basic. The fabric is magically soft, it’s a great length to wear with high waist skinny jeans, I’ve been tucking into skirts too.
Long sleeve split neck – I absolutely LOVE this Vintage blush color as well as the length. One of my friends paired it with plum skinny work pants and it looked amazing.
Relaxed Turtleneck Sweater – Okay, I know turtlenecks are on trend but I was NOT a fan until I found this guy. Perfect non-itchy material, and the cut is on point. I feel like it’s a solid work to weekend piece, I’m wearing the black one with a grey pencil skirt and dark rinse skinnies.
High waisted skinny jeans – These are my favorite jeans of all time. I usually go for their modern skinny, but the high-waisted version is SO comfortable and makes yo booty look nice. This might be me transitioning into mom jeans. Only time will tell. I’ve also worn my pair like 4 times and only minimal baggy knees after sitting at my desk all day. Not bad at all compared to other jeans.
Tech skinnies – I live in the black pair for work whether paired with blouses or sweaters. These are a total wardrobe staple.
Mock neck floppy dress: I have a feeling this might not be for all body types but it’s super cute on a ton of people I have seen wearing it. I am going to pick it up this week! Fabric is comfy considering it’s more of a work dress.
Drapery tweed joggers – obsessed. Live in them, white T and a black blazer with wedge sneakers or black patent pointed pumps. Also maybe with a black turtleneck?
So there you have it friends, my more fashionable friend’s picks for Fall!
What are you loving this Fall?
