When it comes to fall, there are a few wardrobe and beauty essentials that always top my wish list. It’s the season of layering, moisturizing, cozying up, and playing with some deeper shades of colour. I just purchased this Top Shop coat today, after eyeing it over the weekend. It’s SUCH a nice colour for fall and I can’t wait to pair it with a big scarf and a sleek pair of booties. Speaking of booties, these navy suede ones from Aldo are what autumn dreams are made of. With their western flair and deep, rich hue, they add a sense of casual-cool to any outfit. And that sweater. What says a brisk fall day better than a big, cozy knit? I also love white for fall. Even though it usually falls into the “summer” category, I think it adds a nice, soft touch throughout the cooler months. Pairing this sweater with jeans or black leather leggings will be my go to all season. These dainty gold and silver rings are all I’m thinking about right now. You can find a bunch of them at Zane. And a simple black purse with gold hardware pulls just about any fall look together.
Now, onto beauty. As the temperature drops, it’s so important to make sure your skin is getting the proper care it needs. One way to ensure this is by using a super rich moisturizer. I’ve been using Clinique moisturizing gel for years now, and it’s super effective. For fall, I’m going to switch over to their Moisture Surge product for even more hydration. And last, but CERTAINLY not least, a good lipstick is key for every season, and for fall I can’t wait to try out the shade “Sissy”, part of LIPS.BYDANILEA. My amazingly talented friend just launched her very own lipstick line, and you guys HAVE to check it out. I recently just purchased one of the matte liquid lipsticks, and the stay power is unbelievable! You can wear it for a whole night and it doesn’t wear off at all. The products are all fragrance, paraben, and cruelty free, made locally (in Toronto), and the colours are BOMB. Her “Edge” collection will blow your mind. If you’ve ever wanted to try emerald green, deep purple or even black, now is the time!
What do you guys have on your fall wish list?
