Fall Fashion Staples – Closet Confessions

As the “chilly” season approaches, the fashion at Scheels is just warming up. Fall brings boots, chunky sweaters and a staple-layering piece: scarves. Adding boots or a scarf to any outfit can instantly turn the look from summer to autumn.

Chunky sweaters are back and we couldn’t be more excited. When looking for the perfect fall sweater, choose something warm in color (deep colors of red, brown, green, and blue) and chunky knit in aesthetics. Cable knits are a great way to add volume to a solid color sweater without looking bulky. The more oversized a sweater is, the more you can add additional layering. For a comfy, low-key look; pair an oversized sweater with skinny denim jeans and a knee-high boot.

Cold weather booties and boots have become a staple item for every woman’s closet. Boots are best paired with a legging or denim jean. When worn with leggings, boots should be mid-calf or knee-high. This helps cover the calf and disguise the leg-thickening effect leggings can create. When pairing with denim jeans, riding boots are best. This provides a more polished and classic look. When searching for the perfect fall boot, keep color and accents in mind. Deep fall colors are again best, especially when accented with copper buckles.

A scarf is the perfect accessory for fall. Whether thick or thin, this piece is a must have. The best way to wear a scarf is to loosely drape it around your neck letting the ends fall free, leaving a generous gap between your neck and the fabric. As the weather turns colder, a snugger wrap-around is best. Another way to wear it is to form a knot near the bottom. This looks best with a thicker weaved scarf. To amp up your look, choose a scarf with a pattern (plaid is popular) or multiple colors (watercolor). To tone it down, choose a longer scarf with a solid color. This allows for a cozier look, whether going to a game or simply out for a stroll.

Attain that perfect fall look by expanding your closet to include sweaters, boots and scarves. These three pieces can finish off any outfit that needs a fresh look for autumn. The tips and tricks above will have you looking cozy and keep you warm as the winter season approaches.
