Who’s excited about Fall dressing?! The temperatures in NYC finally dropped this past week and I even brought out the tights for a day! So today’s post is all about my Fall fashion staples, because we can’t start off Fall without some of my favorite cozy pieces. First up is a black turtleneck, a must-have for every woman’s closet. Now I’m not super into black as you guys know, but there is something very classically chic about a black turtleneck. I like this one from Lafayette 148 as it has a bit of design to it with a chain detail around the neckline, which looks great paired with layered gold necklaces. The soft viscose fabric also makes this turtleneck a great layering piece for Winter, and perfect on its own for Fall.Layersofchic Fall Fashion Plaid Wool Skirt Socks and Heels Pink Bag Street StyleLayersofchic Fall Fashion Staples Black Turtleneck Denim Jacket Plaid Wool SkirtLayersofchic Fall Fashion Black Turtleneck Plaid Wool Skirt Lafayette 148 Fashion Blog

Another one of my Fall fashion staples is a plaid wool skirt. Plaid is a quintessential Fall print as it’s associated with back to school season, and I couldn’t help but feel a bit like a hot teacher in this outfit. I love the midi length of this plaid skirt and how it flares out on the bottom. The A-line silhouette definitely elevates this piece. I also layered a denim jacket with a pop of leopard print over my shoulders, another Fall fashion essential. For my shoes, I chose chunky olive green velvet heels from Cabi to complete the Fall vibes of this outfit. Of course, I had to add a pop of print with fun lipstick socks.Layersofchic Fall Fashion Black Turtleneck Plaid Wool Skirt Layered Gold NecklacesLayersofchic Fall Fashion Black Turtleneck Plaid Wool Skirt NYC Style BlogLayersofchic Fall Fashion Black Turtleneck Rose Gold Sunglasses Fashion Blogger StyleLayersofchic Fall Fashion Staples Black Turtleneck Denim JacketLayersofchic Fall Fashion Black Turtleneck Plaid Wool Skirt Lafayette 148 Outfit

Since this outfit has so many classic pieces, I chose quirky accessories to complete the look. I love adding a pop of pink to a muted outfit, so I went with my pink leather handbag. To make the black turtleneck more interesting, I added two layered gold cosmic necklaces which are all the rage these days, as well as statement gold hoop earrings. Lastly, I went with my rose gold pink sunglasses from Covry for a trendy touch.Layersofchic Fall Fashion Plaid Wool Skirt Velvet Heels Printed SocksLayersofchic Fall Fashion Black Turtleneck Rose Gold Sunglasses Covry

    So chic! Love the fall inspo here. I think putting socks with heels is so fun…I did something like that too!

  4. I’ve recently rediscovered black polo necks. I used to think they were a bit frumpy but as you’ve demonstrated if you mix them with the right items they’re totally on point.

  5. Megan says:

    Yes! A black turtle neck is such a staple.

    I so agree! I just found a vintage plaid Jil Sander skirt. I’m so excited for it to arrive, and I can’t believe those earrings are only $7 at Lulu’s right now! I just scored them, thank you so much! They look stunning on you. Love every detail of this look.
