Building the perfect collection of clothing and accessories to take you through the months as the weather changes from the carefree warmth of summer to the blustery cold of winter is both enjoyable and easy when you shop online. 

We’ve created this guide to fall fashion must-haves to help you build the perfect wardrobe to get you ready for the crisp autumn season of falling leaves and bundling up for the cold. Browse our carefully curated selection and pick out the pieces that suit your style. These are the items that will last year after year because they’re classics that stand the test of time.

Fall Wardrobe Essentials for Every Woman

To make things a bit easier, we’ve broken down our favorite fall wardrobe essentials into various categories. Have a look in your closet and see which of these items you have, which are still missing, and what will go well with items on the list. Round out your wardrobe with a selection of these must-have items, and you’ll be ready for the season.


Let’s start off building your wardrobe from the ground up with a selection of boots and shoes that will form the basis of your fall fashion essentials. Fall weather ranges from warm days to wet and rainy, so it’s important to have footwear choices that allow you to face whatever the day brings.


One pair of all-weather boots is a staple item in women’s fall fashion. This pair of Sorel Women’s Emelie Chelsea Cattail Boots fits the bill, made of leather to give you that sleek fall look that goes great with all your outfits yet also fully waterproof to tackle any autumn rainstorm that rolls in unexpectedly.

A pair of high boots is also a perfect look for autumn as they go great with skirts and dresses and keep you warm at the same time. These boots have extra fashion sense with a slouched design, and the low heel makes them versatile whether you’re commuting in the city or taking a leisurely weekend stroll in the woods.

If you want to go full waterproof, or know you’re going to be facing some seriously rainy weather, have a pair of strictly waterproof rain boots that can handle the worst. These Western Chief Women’s Printed Tall Rain Boots are durable and cute, made of vulcanized rubber with a shiny black background and multicolored polka dots.

Everyday Shoes

Having a few pairs of fashionable sneakers and canvas slip-ons in your fall clothing essentials is always a good idea. These shoes go great with jeans or high-ankle pants and are the perfect choice for a casual weekend. A pair of Van’s Authentic Red Chili Pepper Shoes are a fun and bold choice for both comfort and style, or take a minimalist approach with a pair of UIN Lightweight Canvas Slip Ons, which are shockproof and non-slip. Naturally, the perfect, go-with-everything sneaker is always a classic white canvas lace-up, so you’ll also want to add these Taos Women’s Moc Star White Canvas Sneakers to your fall wardrobe essentials as well.


Sweaters are perhaps one of the most iconic items when it comes to fall essentials because they mark the change in seasons from hot summer months to chilly autumn days where you’ll want to cozy up with an oversized, comfy sweater. These sweater choices are both fashionable, comfortable and will look great at work and home. A bold, chunky choice with a beautiful burgundy shade and big buttons is this Grecerelle Turtle Cowl Neck, which looks fantastic on top of a pair of casual jeans. When you wear a bulkier sweater on top, the bottoms need to have a more tailored or form-fitting look so that your overall look isn’t too baggy. Another example of that is this GFDFD Women’s Autumn Shirt with a loose bottom. These cozy sweaters should definitely be on your list of fall must-haves.


With lower temperatures rolling in, you’ll definitely need one or two sturdy and warm coats for the autumn months. The thing to remember about fall outerwear is that it has to keep you protected from the really cold days that come towards the end of the season but shouldn’t be too bulky as it also needs to be versatile enough to be worn on the warmer days at the start of the season. That means the perfect fall coat is one that can take you from September to December without having to constantly switch coats based on the weather. 

A long-sleeve fleece jacket is a great solution. It can be worn open when the weather is warmer or buttoned up when the temperatures drop, taking you from the early fall days to the edge of winter. If you live in a much colder climate where the start of fall already brings the cold, opt for this Columbia Women’s Voodoo Falls 590 Turbodown. While it has down lining, it’s still lightweight enough for fall and 100% waterproof so it can handle the rainy months too.

Jeans and Pants

A great pair of jeans is a year-round fashion necessity, but in the fall you can go darker with the colors or choose non-denim pants with different textures, such as corduroy. These high-waist cotton-corduroy pants have a tailored look and can form the basis for a variety of professional work outfits in the fall. When it comes to jeans, a pair of Lee Women’s Classic Fit Monroe Straight-Leg jeans go with virtually any of your other fall wardrobe essentials. They’re made of a stretch blend that makes for a truly flattering fit and they also feature a slimming tummy panel.

All-Occasion Dresses

Fall is a great time to update your dress collection. Dresses are a versatile item in women’s fall clothing because you can layer them by adding tights and boots when the weather is cooler. Choose autumn colors such as deep red, emerald green, and earthy brown tones for a perfect fall palette. This CHARMYI t-shirt dress is a great choice for the season because it’s lightweight but also has 3/4 length sleeves and a below-knee length so it can be worn well with high boots. For a full-length dress that will become a go-to in your wardrobe, choose The Drop long-sleeve mock-neck belted maxi dress in a structured sweater knit. It goes great with a pair of high-heel ankle boots.


You definitely don’t want to forget accessories when planning out your fall clothing must-haves. The right accessories tie together all your looks by adding a unique touch here and there that can be both practical, such as a handbag, as well as sparkly, like a pair of eye-catching earrings. This Patricia Nash burnished bag in fall colors is an excellent choice that will go with lots of different autumn ensembles. Add a pair of earrings like these hand-dipped leaf chandelier earrings, created from actual leaves for a realistic effect that accentuates any outfit. 

Another classic seasonal accessory is a scarf. Scarves are functional for keeping you warm, but also fashionable because they work well as stylish accessories to finish off a look. Infinity wrap scarves are wonderful fall wardrobe essentials because they can easily be thrown into your bag and taken with you everywhere. Scarfand’s Plaid & Tartan Winter Infinity Scarf Wraps are warm and cozy with a classic tartan pattern and are easy to care for because they are fully machine washable. Scarves are one fall accessory that you can always stock up on, so you can keep a scarf in your bag, in your car, and on your coat rack, ready to go as you dash out the door.
