Knits are just so easy just to throw on over anything.


2. Turtlenecks

Turtlenecks are one of my favourite pieces to wear during fall and winter! They’ll keep your neck warm and make you look a bit more put together. My go-to outfit with turtlenecks is usually a pair of high-waisted jeans, but this fall I’m planning on wearing them more with skirts!


3. Dark Denim

Denim is always a good idea for any season, and dark denim is pretty much all I wear during the fall. I like to keep my light-washed denim for the warmer seasons! During the fall and winter seasons you’ll usually catch me wearing the same pair of high-waisted black skinnies every single day #noshame.


4. Pleated Skirts

I’ve recently discovered my love for pleated midi skirts, and I can’t wait to wear them during the colder months!


5. Slip dresses

For me, summer’s all about floral dresses, while fall’s all about slip dresses. Iย loveย wearing them with leather jackets or even bombers โ€“ it’s a simple but cool look.


6. Denim Jackets

I’m still on the hunt for an oversized denim jacket, but fitted ones are great as well! I love layering them with plaid shirts during the fall (and throwing a beanie on!)


7. Leather Jackets

Although I own more jackets than anyone needs in their life, you’ll pretty much catch me wearing the same exact leather jacket everyday during the fall. It just gives you that classic cool-girl look.


8. Trench Coats

Trench coats dress up any outfit and make you look a little more elegant. Perfect if you’re going to nicer events or even if you want to look a little more professional!


9. Booties

Booties are the perfect everyday fall shoe. I’ve collected many over the years, andย yes, there is a difference between all the black booties I own.


10. Over-the-Knee Boots

Over-the-knee boots make any outfit a little more fancier and a little more sexier. One of my fave fall outfits is a pair of black leather over-the-knee boots with an oversized top and leggings!


11. Wide Brim Hats

Wide brim hats are so cute for fall! I just purchased this forest green one and I’m so excited to style it.


12. Berry Lipsticks

Fall’s all about darkening up your wardrobe, and I love berry and red lipsticks for fall. NYX’s soft matte lip cream in San Paulo is my current fave everyday lipstick.
