What to Wear this October: An Early Fall Lookbook

Fall is always my favourite season – I love the cool weather, the crunchy leaves, the moody tones. I was honestly pretty sure that fall was just everyone’s favourite season, but I just looked it up, and it’s actually spring. So that’s interesting.

Fall is clearly also fashion’s favourite season; it’s cool enough to wear sweaters without being so cold that you have to bundle up. Like I mentioned in my previous post about the biggest trends this fall, cardigans are a must-have, along with staples like pinafores, cozy sweaters, and layered chains. While it’s still a little warm out, here are some of my favourite looks that I’ve worn in the past month.


I have been completely obsessed with mini cardigans! Now that it’s cooler, the fuzzy variant is so trendy, and I think it’s adorable. This cream coloured cardigan is from Missguided, and I wore it as a top! I paired it with these layered gold chains (also from Missguided) that I’ve been wearing non-stop, and with these Old Navy straight leg jeans. I love the look of a straight leg pant with such a statement bootie like these patent ones from Boohoo.


From hot girl summer to witch bitch thotumn. I loved wearing this outfit – definitely going to be on repeat for a little while. This is one of the first looks I styled with this cute little pinafore (from Missguided), which I’m really into. I layered it over a plum, split-sleeve sweater from Forever 21, and then threw my favourite layered chains on top. Paired with my new favourite patent booties for a little extra edginess, and then a pair of tights because it was really cold. My hat is from Forever 21! Also, I have a new appreciation for Crispin apples.


Speaking of pinafores, this is another layered pinafore look! I wore this on a warmer October day, so tights were not necessary – but I will definitely be adding those when I rewear this look. This entire outfit is from Missguided (#notspons), save for the booties, which are from Boohoo.


So, technically this is a September outfit, since I wore it to see K.Flay the day before my birthday. BUT, I have been wearing it on repeat all month. These jeans are from Ardene, and they come with the d-ring belt – although, I do often switch it out for this heart-buckle belt from Garage. The top is a basic black crop-top, most likely from H&M or Garage. The boots and the chains go without saying because I’ve worn them in every outfit so far – at least you know that you’ll get plenty of wear out of them!


This gorgeous top is from Creeps, a boutique I randomly stumbled upon while walking to work a few weeks ago. There isn’t exactly an indication of which way you’re supposed to wear it, but I love the subtle edge of having it at the back. I wore it with this knit cardigan from Boohoo and these thrifted jeans. Not pictured are my beat-up Adidas superstars, since this was an errand-day outfit. Since the top is a turtleneck, I stuck with one crystal pendant from Preciosity Shop. The hair scarf is from Forever21.


And finally, my pumpkin patch outfit! First of all, these pumpkin patches get crazy. It was so crowded, but we managed to get the last pumpkin pie. I love this look a lot, it’s the epitome of a fall outfit – a little leather, a little pumpkin spice and a pair of booties. The sweater is an oldie from M Boutique, and the skirt is thrifted from Plato’s Closet. The chains are from Missguided, the hat is from Forever21, and of course, my Boohoo booties (hilarious to say).

There are so many more fall fits to come, so let me know if you like this kind of post and more to see more like it!

As always, thanks for reading.
