LUX Style: 10 Fall 2013 Wardrobe Essentials
Fall is a favorite season when it comes to fashion. We all look forward to curating the perfect seasonal wardrobe. From chunky sweaters to leather boots, there’s just something about this time of year. Taking trends and seasonal favorites into consideration, here are 10 essentials you need in your closet for fall 2013.
The Leather Sweatpant
A transition from skinny styles we have seen in the past, the sweatpant silhouette has taken over this season. From printed fabrics to slouchy leathers, these versatile pants can be dressed up or down. Try pairing these Elizabeth and James jogging pants with your favorite pointed toe pumps for a fashion-forward look.
The Smoking Slipper
Don’t feel obligated to step out in heels; flats are more chic than ever this fall. From oxfords to smoking slippers, they’re ideal for the office and pair perfectly with leather leggings. Try this calf-hair smoking slipper by Charlotte Olympia for a shoe that’s eye catching and on-trend with a hint of animal print.
The Oversized Cardigan
It’s cozy, it’s comfy, and come fall and winter, it’s your new best friend. Throw it over a white tee and your favorite boyfriend jeans and you’ve got your go-to look for the season. Styled with a wide shawl collar frame, this cardigan sweater by Jenni Kayne provides the perfect silhouette.
The Flat Clutch
One of fall’s must-have handbags, the flat clutch is the perfect day-to-night bag. Simplistic in design, a streamlined, oversized style is perfect for all your essentials. Invest in this croc-embossed clutch by Lanvin for a standout bag you can use year round.
The Printed Pencil Skirt
Prints are big for fall and showing up in unexpected ways, dressing up casual sweatshirts in addition to classic pencil skirts. Polished, yet edgy, it can transition easily from the office to happy hour. With a flattering cut and foliage print, we’re opting for this pencil skirt by Donna Karan New York.
The Chunky Chain Necklace
Chains continue to stay in the spotlight, but take on a chunkier look for the season. Taking a cue from the 80s and 90s they are popular in accessories and handbags. Go bold in gold with a utilitarian chain necklace from Tory Burch. The hinged hexagon can be worn in the front or back.
The Sweater Dress
The sweater dress is the best of both worlds. It has the ability to show a little leg while still keeping you cozy and comfortable. Pair this minimalist T by Alexander Wang shift sweater dress with your over-the-knee boots for work or play.
The Over-The-Knee Boot
It doesn’t get much sexier than the over-the-knee boot for fall. Simple and versatile, they can be worn with skirts, dresses or under leggings and tights. This velvety suede pair by Jean-Michel Cazabat features a hidden platform for added lift.
The Wool Jacket
Every fashionista needs the perfect wool jacket to throw over dresses and blouses when the weather drops. A wardrobe staple, this piece doesn’t have to be boring. Ditch your old winter outerwear for this updated wool jacket by Carven. Featuring a structured silhouette, boxy sleeves add a unique element to this cropped style.
The Cat-Eye Sunglasses
Look no further than cat-eye sunglasses as the “it” accessory for fall. From shield styles to aviators, you won’t be able to escape these frames. Our go-to guy for shades, we love the effortless style of this cat-eye pair by Tom Ford. Adding vintage appeal, they stay fresh with distinct Tom Ford details.
