Burgundy is the hottest color for fall, in any form. From, wine stained lips or a dark red coat, wearing burgundy is romantic, feminine and is universally flattering on any skin tone.
Big floppy hats or a felt fedora will keep you warm, while keeping you stylish. These hats go with almost anything in your wardrobe. Just keep in mind, it gives off a more casual look so, you will want to stick with neutral tones for fall.
Chunky knits and oversized cardigans are the go-to outerwear for cooler weather. Big sweaters are one of my favorite looks this season. I love the luxurious feel and the comfort factor that sweaters give.
