Posted by Goodwill Staff on Sep 3, 2020 6:42:55 PM

We know we’re all still enjoying the warm summer weather, but with cooler weather just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start prepping your fall closet!

Don’t worry summer lovers, switching over to autumn attire doesn’t mean you have to ditch all of your warm-weather wears right away. In fact, many of this year’s must-have fall fashions will allow you to hang on to your favorite summer clothes for just a bit longer.

Are you still working to perfect your autumn look? We’re here to help. Narrow down your search by focusing on this handful of chic and simple fall fashions.

1. Bold Blazers

Business or casual? Blazers are the solution. Nothing gives you the best of both worlds quite like this tried-and-true autumn essential. Use darker shades like black and gray to dress up your everyday attire or choose energetic, vibrant colors like marigold or tangerine to add some seasonal spice to your casual look.


2. Doll Dresses

Liven up your style for fall events or chilly nights out on the town with a couple of baby doll dresses. Not only do these mini-sheaths come in shapes and colors that flatter all body types, they also pair perfectly with other fall favorites like stockings, knee-highs, and riding boots.


3. Cropped Tops

See, summer lovers? We told you that you wouldn’t have to say goodbye to your warm-weather wardrobe just yet. You can hang on to your cropped tanks and tops this fall by pairing them with bold looks like leather jackets or by wearing them over a more form-fitting, long-sleeve top.


4. Knit Sweaters

Knit sweaters are the quintessential autumn look. Whether you’re heading out to enjoy the brisk weather or getting cozy by the fireplace, a simple knit sweater is your go-to for both style and comfort. Knits come in an endless variety of shapes and sizes, meaning you’ll have no trouble finding slimming and relaxed-fit options to play with.


5. Sheer Overlays

While this trend may be unfamiliar to some, its versatility will make it a valuable addition to your autumn fashion lineup. Sheer overlays are a fun and effortless way to get the highly-coveted “layered look” that fall is famous for without adding any unwanted bulk or warmth. Sheer overlays, scarves, and robes are also a great way to add some glitz and glam to your must-have outwear options.
