Fall Must Haves

Fall
I couldn't add everything above because my fall must haves list is just so long. It's long because most fall clothes make really good wardrobe basics. If you are looking for wardrobe basics make sure to look during fall because you will find most of them then. I have been trying to find as many of my fall clothes/basics right now and I am having great luck. I just have a few items left to find and cross off my fall/basics list. Most of you probably know by now that fall is my favorite season for clothes. I just love the styles and colors that are used. When it comes to clothing I like darker colors because they are easier to style, they go with most things, and I just love darker colors (like burgundy and etc). I also made sure to add something burgundy above.

What are some of your must have fall clothes?

1. Coated/Leather or Black Jeans | Current/Elliot $248
2. Cargo/Green Pants | American Eagle $50 (other option 1)

Halloween: Black Cat

Halloween
I think the black cat costume is the easiest one to create. All you need is an all black outfit with some fur, cat ears/tail, and makeup. Here are some pictures for makeup (here). I thought the sweater above was really cute for this outfit because there is a cat on it. I also added a fur vest and cat ears because that really helps make the look and tell people what your suppose to be other then the makeup.

What do you think about the Black Cat idea?

1. Cat Sweater | SheInside $30
2. Black Jeans |  Current/Elliot $450
3. Cat Ears | Charlotte Russe $6
4. Fur Vest | Lookbook Store $30
5. Black Booties | Rag & Bone $500

Halloween: Comic Book Character

Halloween

The Comic Book Character has been a recently popular and unique costume idea. Whenever creating this outfit I remembered the Phillip Lim Target collection and the top above. I knew it was a perfect fit and I also wanted to add a trench coat because the female comic book characters always have that classic trench coat. This trench coat is very colorful and comic books are very colorful, so it fits the theme perfectly. A long time ago I came upon an Etsy shop that has a lot of unique comic book action headbands/clips and I hunted it down and found the headpiece above. I think that accessory just adds a cute and unique feel to the look.

Do you like the Comic Book Character Halloween idea?

1. Trench Coat | Target $18
2. Boom Sweatshirt | Target $30
3. Skinny Jeans | Acne $250
4. Bam! Headpiece | JanineBasil 24
5. Rain Boots | Hunter $140
6. Clear Clutch | Nasty Gal $50

Halloween: Greek Goddess

Halloween
One of my favorite ideas for Halloween would be the Greek Goddess. What makes it my favorite is the overall look and the overall peices in the look. I am a huge fan of flowy dresses, sandals, and cuff type jewelry. My favorite piece from this outfit would be the shoes because they have wings on them and reminded me of the Greek mythology character Hermes. Which makes them extra perfect for this look.

Do you like the Greek Goddess look for Halloween?

1. Flowy Dress | Modekungen $200
2. Leaf Headpiece | Bloom Design Studio $38
3. Cuff Bracelet | Karine Sultan $72
4. Greek Sandals | Ancient Greek Sandals $205
5. Gold Necklace | Kenneth Jay Lane $200

Halloween: Mermaid

Halloween
Dressing up as a Mermaid for Halloween is difficult I think because it can go in the wrong direction really fast. When people hear mermaid they probably think of Ariel, but whenever people dress up as Ariel it can be a little cheesy/kiddy. You don't have to have a swimsuit top and tail on for the costume. You can find other items with similarities that will have the same feel, but in a more adult look. With that said I chose this sequin skirt to symbolize the tail, but you can actually wear this any time of the year. I also really liked the necklace above because it's a mermaid and the tail looks like the skirt.

What do you think of the Mermaid idea for Halloween?

1. Corset Top | Tilly's $15
2. Sequin Skirt | Sabine $150
3. Gold Sandals | Asos $30
4. Mermaid Necklace | SwayChic $5

Halloween: Flapper

Halloween
When it comes to Halloween costume ideas I noticed that the Flapper idea is a very popular one. On this post I wanted to show you my version of the Flapper costume. I made sure to add sparkle because whenever I think of a flapper dress and headpiece I always think of sequins and sparkle. I also stuck with a neutral based color scheme.

Are you a fan of the Flapper costume idea?

1. Sequin Dress | Asos $214
2. Feather Headpiece | Charlotte Russe $8
3. Clutch Bag | Dorothy Perkins $35
4. Nude Sandals | Gianvito Rossi $900
5. Bracelet Set | Forever New $20

Fall "It" Hat

maxi skirt!
One thing that I have seen everywhere and I call the "It" hat for fall is the wide brim fedora. I know it's everywhere, but I really like it and hope it stays. I think it makes a really cute accessory and it's perfect for fall. It really adds something extra to just a simple outfit and can go with most things. I also added a burgundy bag and coated jeans because burgundy is a favorite color for fall and coated jeans are also a good must have for fall. I think coated jeans are a better option than leather pants because they are comfier and still have that leather look.

1. White T-Shirt | Alexander Wang (Other Option 1)
2. Burgundy Bag | Rebecca Minkoff $195
3. Coated Jeans | Current/Elliott $248
4. Black Booties | Rag & Bone $495  
5. Black It Hat | Michael Stars $58
