10 Statement Pieces You Need This Fall

August 31st, 2022 at 10:00am

With fall just around the corner, I’ve decided it’s time to start adjusting my closet. The time to exchange my summer pieces for fall fashions has come, and it’s never an easy task. I’m hanging up my favorite denim mini skirts and bright bathing suits from the summer for the time being. This is not a goodbye, just a see you later!

In the meantime, I’ve been contemplating the question, What statement pieces am I going to wear this fall? In past years it’s been the cozy sweaters or mini booties that have taken over fall fashion. If you’ve been wondering what eye-catching pieces you should pick up this fall, look no further! I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 statement pieces you have to add to your closet this fall.

01. Embellished Jewelry

Thick, eye-catching pieces of jewelry are an easy way to add some flavor to your wardrobe this season. Think embellished pieces that really show off your own personal style. Charmed bracelets or chain necklaces may have been a fad in recent years, but they’re definitely making a comeback this fall.

02. Fingerless Gloves

I’ll confess – I’m from North Carolina, so when fall rolls around, the weather shift hits me hard. When it’s not cold enough to wear traditional gloves, you can turn to this alternative style for a little bit of breathing room. Fingerless gloves give off slight winter warrior vibes, but keep an overall warm, fall essence.

03. Knee High Boots

I know what you’re thinking, “Weren’t knee highs popular fall shoes in the 2010s?” Yes, they were, but they’ve recently morphed into a more modernized form. Think Steve Madden’s platform knee high boots everyone and their mother are in love with. Boots are a quintessential fall fashion, and they turn heads while doing so.

Corsetry is no new craze hitting the fashion world, but trust me, you need to add one to your closet. Corsets can easily transform a seemingly relaxed outfit into an iconic fashion moment.

05. Maxi Skirts

Maxi skirts have been taking over my TikTok for you page with celebrities and influencers alike swapping out mini skirts for their elongated counterparts. With colder temperatures on the horizon, I can also confess I’ll be making this trade. Maxis are a staple piece that you have to pick up for the season that can be dressed up with a corset and some heels, or down with a vintage tee and a pair of sneakers.

You can always turn to cargo pants.
