Get The Perfect Fall Wardrobe With These 6 Essential Pieces!

Fall is here, and it’s time to make some warm weather memories before the cold arrives. But before you get ready for the best season of all, you need to know what to wear.

The best way to find out what’s in style this fall? Try on some new pieces! Here are six essentials that will keep your closet fresh and up-to-date for the season ahead:

A perfect pair of jeans
Jeans are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe, and there are no reasons why they shouldn’t be this fall. Whether you’re going for a classic dark wash or something more unique like bleached denim or ripped jeans, you’ll definitely want at least one pair of jeans that fit like a glove. If you’re not sure where to start with denim shopping, check out Saltwater Bay Boutique for their variety of options!

A cozy sweater
Sweaters are another must-have item when it comes to fall fashion – especially if you live in Alberta where it gets cooler at night! Sweaters come in so many different shapes and sizes, from cardigans to turtlenecks, so make sure you’ve got one that fits your personal style (and matches your favourite outfit!). Check out Old Navy for their trendy collection!

The classic blazer
For those of you who are looking for an outfit to take you from now through winter, a blazer is a must-have. This structured piece can be worn at both work and play, so it’s just what your closet needs. You’ll never need to fuss over what to wear again with this winter go-to in your arsenal. Pair it with any jeans or legging combo, some leather boots and a chic pair of glasses, and voila – instant street style! Check out Banana Republic for the perfect blazer!

An oversized sweater dress
A sweater dress is a great transition piece for the season; the best thing about them is that they can be dressed up or down. They also have enough structure to make it office appropriate, but not so much you’d want to leave it at home on a Saturday night. Throw on a pair of black tights and booties (or heels if you’re feeling particularly ambitious) and you’re ready for work in style. Head over to H&M for endless options!

Cargo pants
Cargo pants were all over the runway during Fashion Week last year, and they’re still going strong this season too! You’ll see them on everyone from streetstyle stars like Cara Delevingne to celebrities like Gigi Hadid. Dress them up or down depending on your mood and get ready to look put together this season. Ardene’s got you covered for the best cargo pants!

Go for two-tone boots
Two-tone boots are so on trend for this season. The classic brown and black, or tan and black, styles will be timeless for years to come. In addition to being stylish, two-tone boots offer a layer of insulation that’s helpful in changing climates. Head over to Call It Spring for trendy footwear!


It can all be overwhelming at first, but once you have a few go-to stores it’ll be easier to find what you’re looking for. There are plenty of stores at South Common that make picking out that new coat or warm sweater a breeze. And don’t forget to reward yourself with an Iced Pumpkin Cold Brew at Starbucks after your long day of shopping!
