Although I have a pretty extensive list of what I consider 'essential' for the fall, there are a few things, that in some form or some variation, I believe is a must to make it through the months with a chill in the air! ModCloth nails it with all of my fall essentials, from blazers, to sweaters, to their awesome selection of cardigans! Check out how I style my favorite fall items!
Blazers are something I can't live without year round, but especially during the fall. To me, they double as an actual coat- for they days where its a little cold, but not cold enough for a full blown winter jacket! Hands down, an absolute must! I also love to add a scarf-whether it be chunky, knitted, infinity- for some added texture and warmth! What's great about blazers is they come in a variety of colors, prints and material from simply cotton to warmer wool. A definite must in my closet! This army green color is a great fall hue- one that I would consider a neutral!
I cannot get enough of chunky sweaters/open cardigans. Can't get enough. Over the summer it was sheer kimonos- I feel like the chunky, open cardigans are the falls version. I like them, because I don't think they look frumpy, like sweaters tend to do sometimes. Maybe it's their cut, or the way they lay, but I think they can be so flattering and don't necessarily add too much bulk to an outfit. Like blazers, you can get them in pretty much any color or pattern (like this, this and this)! They make for an easy outfit too- toss on over a tee, add some booties and you are all set. Besides being cute, they keep you cozy!
Basic crew, knit sweaters I think are a versatile, fall staple. I personally have been wearing my faux leather leggings quite a bit over the last few weeks. Wearing them with a knit sweater (like this or this) makes the outfit a little bit dressier! That's what is great about these types of sweaters (like most of my fall staples) is their versatility. I can totally wear something like that with boyfriend jeans and slip on sneakers too!

I think cardigans have potential to be a fall essential. I think something as simple as a cardigan is an easy way to change the whole look of your outfit while keeping you warm! ModCloth has a really great selection of cardigans with a lot of variety in styles and prints! You can check out the rest of their cute selection here.
