Fall is right around the corner, and we cannot hide our excitement. Not only that, but we are also looking forward to the end of the blazing summer heat (shoutout to the rest of you Floridians!). We’re just looking forward to the joys of fall: pumpkin spice lattes, cozy evenings, warm tea, a cool breeze, and the opportunity to put together some great outfits with the help of layering. Summers allow us to have some pretty carefree outfits courtesy of swimsuits and sundresses, but fall is a fashionista’s moment to shine.
Layers can completely transform any outfit. Wearing simple jeans and a v-neck? Add some movement with a cardigan. Wearing a basic slip dress? Throw on a denim jacket and some booties to add some personality. Each new season allows us to go back into our closets and pull out our staple pieces. If you haven’t already built your staple wardrobe for fall, we’ve got you covered. Here is our list of fall staple clothing and accessories you need:
Fall Staple Clothing And Accessories:
Fedoras were extremely popular during the days of Prohibition (the 1920s to the early 1930s) and are back. This classic bucket hat is the perfect way to accessorize any laidback outfit. Here are the fedoras on our wish list:
One must-have in every woman’s wardrobe is a classic black fedora. The Telescope Brim black fedora from Asos is the perfect accessory to throw on any outfit. Black accessories match most outfits and never go out of style. This fedora is expandable in size and easy to maintain (wipe only for cleaning), which makes it even better.

If you’re looking for something a little sassier, look no further than the Brimming With Confidence Fedora from Lulus. This fedora comes in tan and is made of 100% wool. For its price, it’s a steal! You can pair it with your trendiest fall outfits; pair it with oversized coats, sweaters, and a midi-skirt for the ultimate fall look. Just as the name promises, this fedora will leave you feeling confident.
We recently discovered Gigi Pip, a brand that specializes in making high-quality hats, and knew that the Dahlia Boater fedora needed to be added to our fedora collections. This beautiful, structured hat is perfect to elevate any outfit this fall. It adds a ton of personality with its unusual shape. Unlike most fedoras, this one comes in different sizes and can fit anyone’s unique head size.
Another must-have item on our fall staple clothing list is a good pair of ankle-length boots. Fall is breezy enough to require some close-toed coverage but not enough for the longer boot styles. Ankle boots are perfect to pair with shorts, jeans, skirts, and even dresses.
Pretty Little Thing’s Behati Faux Suede ankle boots are the perfect boots for a modern and stylish woman. These boots are available in three colors, classic black, cream, and our favorite – a chic tan. Its simple design allows you to pair it with any outfit and turns it up a notch!

If you’re looking for a more cozy and comfortable pair of boots, look no further than DSW’s Rimi Bootie. The easy pull-up and slip-on design make it a perfect pair for a casual outfit. Available in three colors and with a wood-grain finish, it’s hard to pass on this pair!
Looking for a sexy option? The Vince Camuto Sashane Peep-Toe Booties are a no-brainer. This pair of designer high-heeled booties are perfect for the days you want to get glam’d up and hit the town. A covered stiletto with a peep toe design screams sexy. Rock these with your favorite pair of jeans and make a statement.
One of our favorite staple clothing items is denim jackets. Denim jackets have made a comeback from the grungy 90s. Oversized ripped, studded, and covered in patches – denim jackets have a lot of personalities and can completely change the look of any outfit. Denim jackets are a key fall staple.
Free People’s Rumors Crop Denim Trucker Jacket is the perfect oversized jacket. Lightly ripped and available in two washes, you can throw on this jacket with any pair of casual pants to make a statement.
Another oversized option comes from H&M. H&M’s Washed Oversized Denim Jacket is available in two shades – light-washed denim, and medium-washed denim. This baggy jacket is a perfect throw-on piece for an all-black, bold statement outfit.
ASOS’s classic denim jacket is another great addition to your fall collection. We are convinced this light-washed denim jacket will never go out of style. This is the perfect jacket to wear with a dress and some sneakers while running errands or for a lunch date in the park.
Yes, flannels can be stylish! Flannels get a bad rep for being a lazy outfit choice, but they are effortlessly trendy. Take your flannel game up a notch by pairing a muted flannel with a leather skirt or by styling it with a lightweight scarf. If you want to rock fall fashion, wear a tucked-in, body-fitting cami under your baggy flannel – you’ll look effortlessly but extremely stylish.
Abercrombie & Fitch comes through with another great fall product. The Boyfriend Flannel Shirt can be worn as a jacket paired with leggings. For a more classic look, pair this shirt with some skinny jeans. Don’t forget to roll up your sleeves! This shirt is available in four different colors and honestly, you may want to snag one in every color!
Boohoo’s Grandad Collar Oversized flannel shirt is a go-to for pairing with a sassy graphic t-shirt dress and some knee-high boots. Push the boundaries and stay on top of trends with this shirt, available in two bold colors.
Speaking of bold, Missguided’s Oversized Check Shirt Dress is the flannel print to go to when you want to skip wearing the shirt with other articles of clothing. Just style it with some daring boots, and you are ready to go! Available in four fun colors including mustard and baby pink, it’s hard to go wrong with this flannel.
The ultimate fall staple clothing piece is a good cardigan. Cardigans can be dressed down to look comfy or played up to look chic. Cardigans come in all shapes and sizes – cropped, chunky, mesh, you name it – there’s a cardigan for everyone.
The Pretty Little Thing Yazmin Chunky Knit 3/4 Sleeve Wrap Cardigan is perfect for cooler weather. Wear this fisherman knit cardigan with some joggers for a laid-back look or with some slacks for a more polished look. This is a great transitional piece that will keep you warm and well put together.
For a lightweight cardigan, we’re loving ASOS’ Knit Tie Front Cardigan. This fun and subtly colorful cardigan is a bold choice once you pair it with a bright bralette and ripped jeans. While it’s not for everyone, this cardigan is a staple piece for this fall.
For the ultimate cardigan that just screams fall and makes you want to curl up in front of a toasty fire, look no further than H&M’s Mixed Yarn Boyfriend Cardigan. You can wear this cardigan with wide-leg pants for a layered look or with a cotton maxi dress for a more textured look. Comes in 4 different colors!

Through the end of the year, dresses and tops will maintain their volume thanks to ballooning silhouettes, oversized shirting, and puff sleeve trends. The latter will, if anything, liven up all the soft pants you’ll likely still be wearing on the bottom.
What are the best clothes to wear in the fall?
Fall is the perfect season to wear toasty winter essentials like corduroy leggings, turtleneck sweaters, and shearling jackets. To prevent overheating, wear warm-weather bottoms like Bermuda shorts and midi skirts with cool-weather tops like oversize jackets and bulky knits, and vice versa (try a silk cami with wool slacks).
