How To Shop Smartly For Fall

How To Shop Smart This Fall

I am absolutely in disbelief that fall is here. But the cooler evenings when you want to feel cozy at home, makes you realize that pretty soon. I have to be honest, I am never ready for fall and often times, I have skipped the season in the entirety in terms of my wardrobe. While that worked for years when it was warmer, but when it is that combination of cold and warm weather, it really became difficult to dress up for the weather.

I was either too warm or too cold. In the last couple of years, I have figured out how to dress appropriately and more importantly transition my wardrobe to fall and winter by shopping smartly. Shopping always excites me, but making smart shopping decision that saves me tone of money for more shopping is something, I get super excited about.

Hi There!

I am a Techie turned Fashion Blogger helping inspire Women like me and you stay stylish and celebrate their lives. Life does not have to be just basic, we can add colors and make it so much fun!

Check the Color Palette!

If you think you cant wear colors in fall, then you are in for a surprise, I love colors specially in fall. I love colors in general, but fall is the perfect time for warmer and earthy colors, as well as colors that make you feel calm and soothing. Think of fall as the marking of calmer months when the nature slows down, we all probably slow down from the hustle bustle of summer activities.

Even animals hibernate. This is the time for colors that bring that emotion in us. The feeling of being cozy. Every year, there are a new shades get introduced and I love experimenting with them. But, dont go for all of the colors, your wardrobe might not feel happy about it and more importantly, you might not get a lot of use out of it. So, pick the top 3 colors you want to use, you can go for less or more depending on how much of a diversity you want in your wardrobe.

I usually pick 3 colors that I want to add to my wardrobe, 1 of them being the most important color for my entire fall winter wardrobe and the other complimenting it. And I know what you are thinking, I am not referring to basic colors. The basic colors are something that you can pair with these new colors and create amazing outfits.

Take Out What You Have!

This is the foundation and you all probably do this already. But, the key is to look at what you can continue wearing, and what is not working for you anymore.

Every year, I find that there are certain pieces that I have grown out of or probably dont want to wear it. There is no point in holding on to those pieces. 

At the same time, its always good to look at what you already own so that you don’t buy the same piece again. Trust me, I have done that.

The key to a great wardrobe is to be able to mix and match the new with the old.

It’s always a good practice to have a foundation before you can start looking for new pieces that you love. This dress that I am wearing is from last year and I absolutely fell in love and I feel would be a classic piece in my closet. So, this year I am going to be trying to style it with something new or even an existing piece. I love seeing my old clothes in a new angle. Gives me a new perspective.

Think What Your Style Is!

Its always important to keep this in mind at all times. Every season there will be new styles and trends, we all love to shop them. As a fashionista thats what you love doing. But when you align your own personal style with the new pieces that you will be shopping for, you will get far more worth for your money and you will develop a timeless style. So, whichever season you shop for, this point is the most important for you.

Buy Basics on Deal!

Yup, if you can find a good deal for basics, I say take it. Because you will be wearing them a lot. So, sometimes, you might want to buy more that 1 piece of it. If you find a good deal, it always feels great to wear it. And its always a good value for money. I usually try to buy lightweight sweaters in basic colors on deals and discounts. Even cardigans are something that I love in a good deal. As these are basic, sometimes paying full price for them just doesn’t feel right. What do you think?

Layering Pieces Please!

Fall is typically a transitional weather where the temperature slowly cools down from the scorching heat, so the days might be still warmer, but the nights usually become pretty cold quickly. So, the pieces that you usually go for during this time are lighter layers that feel warmer. While Denim jackets might sometime suffice, going for a light woolen material generally feels cozier and more comfortable. 

Extra Touch

This is really key for fall and sometimes the only thing that would differentiate your wardrobe from season to season. This depends what kind of climate you live it. For fall, I love adding details of the weather through accessories. A great way to feel cozier is having a woolen scarf that you can use as a shawl as well. It also becomes an essential in your wardrobe when you are transition to cooler weather.
