The LA Girl’s Top 12 Fall Fashion Staples

If we’re being honest, cropped tees and skater dresses are still the go-to for LA’s summery fall. Since Summer lasts forever here, you’re probably still dusting the sand off your crochet mesh beach tote. But if you’re anything like us, you’re also ready to live out those Gossip Girl and Sabrina the Witch-inspired Pinterest boards. Thanks to versatile pieces from knit dresses to trendy bolero sweaters, we gathered our 12 Fall Fashion Staples to slay this season.  

Shacket (Part Shirt, Part Jacket)

Thin enough to stroll in warm humidity. Thick enough for crisp mornings and chilly evenings. Sporting a slight utility style, shackets often come in a button-down collar design, making them perfect for layering. From rugged leather to a cozy wool blend, shackets come in all kinds of styles.

Vest season is here! Puffer vests have finally made the transition from strictly being in the athletic category to everyday streetwear. You can wear it extra cropped, down passed your knees, or as a glossy leather piece. A puffer vest is a must for casual fall attire.

A relaxed-fit trouser makes style effortless, whether you’re heading to the office or catching up at a lunch date. Rock a burgundy leather pair or one in satin with ruffles. For the ideal fall wardrobe, we recommend a pleated pair in black or nude to go with any piece and every occasion.

Long Skirts

The beauty of a long skirt is that in the summer months, you can sport a satin one with a slit running up your thigh. You can also bring it into your fall wardrobe as a cashmere-wool blend in brown or nude. LA Girl Tip: Pair your long skirt with knee-high stiletto boots for the classic French chic style.

A matching sweatsuit makes for the perfect fall loungewear or for a stroll at the park on a cloudy day. Mix and match as many accessories to your sweatsuit, from gold hoop earrings to layering with a shacket for chillier days. Get in the fall aesthetic by opting for darker shades like brown, maroon, or deep olive.

Bring dramatic hues to both your wardrobe and your makeup. Go full-on goth babe with matte plum lipstick, or layer on some berry gloss for a sheer fall pout. LA Girl Tip: Dab some lipstick on your cheeks and temples for a matching flush. For a dewy look, highlight your cheekbones and eyelids with your berry gloss.

Their practicality and versatility make them a fall wardrobe must-have

Your trendy dad trainers can be paired with your statement shacket or trench coat for a casual city look. Make your sneakers stand out by pairing them with a sweatsuit and silver or gold jewelry. We can’t get over the New Balance 550s (the green & white pair down below)

Fall Accessories

No matter the season, an outfit is never complete without accessories. For fall, we’re obsessed with these nude and dark-colored claw clips, add some gold hoops to best compliment fall colors, and finish off your fall fit clutching a fuzzy sherpa bag.
