I know…no one is ready for fall but I sure am! Let me rephrase—I’m ready for fall fashion! I know I’ve constantly complained about the torturous weather in N.Y.C. (hurricanes, rain, hail, black ice, frizzy hair, chapped lips…I digress) but I am ready to trade in my booty shorts and tank tops for nice chunky sweaters and fluffy jackets. It’s strange because I always thought I was a hot-weather type of girl but shopping this season was a real struggle. I found myself gawking over new fall items versus summer essentials. I think it doesn’t help that there’s only three months out of the whole year that’s considered “summer” in New York—so why waste money on clothes that’s only good for three months?
Because I love autumn so much, I wanted to share with you my top 10 fall items that I’m absolutely obsessed with. Hopefully my wish list will inspire and also help you spruce up your wardrobe. So let’s get fall ready!
1. TOPSHOP coat
When it comes to outerwear, the oversize/boyfriend coat is a must. Baggy enough for layering, the menswear-inspired silhouette is ironically very flattering and chic, and can be worn anytime of the week.
2. TIBI boots
I love love loooove a good boot. I’m very picky about boots for some reason but I’ve been eying Tibi’s Piper boots for years now. This boot can be worn with almost anything—midi skirts, skinny jeans, maxi dresses, and more!
3. ADRIANO GOLDSCHMIED skinny jeans
Let’s be real, everyone needs a good pair (or several pairs) of black skinny jeans—distressed is a must!
4. BRIXTON fedora
Frizzy hair? One word. Fedora.
5. ASOS purse
Trade in your summer light-weight handbag for a bold purse.
6. ADIDAS ORIGINAL t-shirt
It would’t be a YUPNYC wish list if I didn’t include something sporty. ADIDAS original orchid tee is the perfect “I don’t give a f*ck”/“I’m lazy”/ “Comfy Sunday” tee.
7. GUDRUN & GUDRUN cardigan
Inspired by my swag/style crush Janelle Monae, this black and white cardigan will not only keep you warm but it will leave you looking tres chic.
8. THE LOFT necklace
Want a statement necklace that's a little more on the subtle side? The Loft has lots of great pieces that's perfect for any attire.
9. BAUBLEBAR earrings
Remember, ears are the new nails so don’t forget to accessories those bad boys!
10. TOPSHOP slip ons
True New Yorkers don’t wear heels on the streets (unless you’re Anna Wintour). Travel in style with slip-ons—try oxford blood!
