The first *official* day of fall is this week, and it’s getting me so excited for fall fashion! This year, instead of buying a bunch of random items, I’ve thought about the styles and trends I want to carry into fall. I want to invest in a few staple pieces I can wear all season long, style multiple ways, and fill my closet with items I truly love.
Before figuring out my fall fashion staples, I knew I wanted to shop from a high-quality, reliable, and fashion retailer where I could find everything I needed! There are so many options out there, but lately, I’ve been doing most of my shopping from Saks OFF 5TH.
Saks OFF 5TH is having a huge fall promotion beginning this Friday, the 23rd, and running all weekend until September 25th. It’s a site-wide promotion where you can get 25% off your order of $150+ with code TAKE25, so it’s the perfect time to snag some cute things for fall!
Before you begin your fall shopping, I’d definitely recommend finding a retailer you love that you want to shop at. Saks OFF 5TH is an amazing option since you’ll definitely find everything you need for fall! All of my fashion staples I’ll be sharing today are from Saks OFF 5TH so don’t miss out on these cute pieces plus a few more I’m sharing with you at the end of this post.
My Fall Staples
Is it really the fall season without chunky knits?! I love transitioning from lightweight, slinky summer tops to cozy, oversized fall knits. Chunky knits are and will always be one of my fall staple pieces, since they are so easy to style and dress up or down. You can wear a chunky knit with leggings and cute sneakers for a cozy athleisure look, or dress it up with a pair of chic trousers and heeled boots. The sky is the limit–you can never have enough chunky knits! This season, I’m especially looking for knits that are a little more fun and have something extra than your plain, solid knit sweater. I am so obsessed with the Naadam Wool & Cashmere Cowlneck Sweater I got from Saks OFF 5TH for it’s color-block design and the super chunky cowl neckline. Add a pair of earrings and you’re set!

Sneakers with Everything
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pair of tall boots or booties during the fall season. But there’s just something about a chic pair of sneakers that I’ve been drawn to this season! With the two kids running around and our busy schedules, I’ve been gravitating more towards a comfortable shoe that is functional but also looks good with my outfits. With the many fashionable styles out there, sneakers really can be styled with every outfit, and I am leaning into that for fall! To accomplish this you really just have to find the right pair of sneaks, like the Vintage Havana Mixed-Media Star Patch Sneakers I grabbed from Saks OFF 5TH. They’re neutral, stylish, and work with everything from denim to dresses. Love!

Dainty & Minimal Jewelry
When the weather cools down, we tend to be more bundled up, meaning accessories are more on the cozy side. I love a good scarf or beanie, but wearing jewelry is a daily thing for me, too! This fall, I’ll be adding dainty jewelry pieces to my outfits for a minimal and effortless look. Larger jewelry can overpower an outfit if you’ve already got so many layers on, so keeping things simple adds an extra sparkle that isn’t too overwhelming. Pieces like the Adriana Orsini Goldtone & Cubic Zirconia Small Hoop Earrings are the perfect addition to give your look something extra with minimal effort. I love styling them with all of my outfits and they come in a set of two earrings!
