The hygge season has finally arrived which means clothing is about to get a whole lot cozier. Finally! The only thing I enjoy more than fall is the clothes you get to wear. The key to a strong autumn-apparel game is simple: you need basic, interchangeable items with neutral tones and accent pieces and accessories to round out your cozy, hygge vibe. Also, layering is key because you never know what Mother Nature is going to throw at you. Chicago can have 40 degree swings in a matter of hours. The proper fall wardrobe basic essentials should include a chunky sweater, blanket scarf, a hint of plaid and simple interchangeable options at your disposal. This season’s fall fashion trends lend itself to all of the above. If you are looking to add comfort to your cool weather style, then this fall list of staples is going to help get you started.
Coats & Blazers ~ Your outfit isn’t complete without a proper outer layer. A fall coat shouldn’t be too bulky and there should be enough room to slip a blazer or sweater underneath.
Plaid ~ This pattern comes in all varieties and never goes out of style. Plaid is the perfect bit of color one must have when adding a little extra to their simple, cozy look.
Tops ~ Simple and basic are the best option when your end goal is cozy. This way you can layer with sweaters and scarves and not look like a hobo. Well, maybe a little. That’s okay too!
Shoes & Booties ~ Booties are a staple in an autumn wardrobe. A cute shoe can be the perfect addition to a pretty simple outfit. If you are feeling a little feisty, leopard is all the rage.
Pants ~When you are going cozy on top with big over-sized sweaters, you are going to want to keep the pants slim and tight. You can’t go wrong with blue and black denim. A little camouflage never hurt anyone either.
Oversized Sweaters – There is no rule when choosing a sweater, only that you feel like you are wrapped in a blanket when wearing one. Cardigans allow for layers. You can add a mix of plaid or plain underneath.
Accessories ~ Glasses and hats are our favorite hygge accessories. When you are keeping it simple, it is fun to add a little flare to your head.
