Fall is definitely my favourite season. Beside the cooler temperatures I also love the colourful leaves, and elegant fashion. Glamorous fabrics, as well as classy cuts are on top of my shopping list for autumn. In this blog post, I show you my ten must-haves for the Golden Season.


1. Long Gloves

I wear gloves all year long, but while I chose light fabrics in summer I’m happy to wear my long nylon and leather ones during autumn and winter. A wonderful example are the long nylon gloves by Secrets in Lace which you can shop here.

2. Elegant Capes

A cape always looks elegant and ladylike, especially in combination with the long gloves I mentioned before. I bought a wonderful cape last year at Vont 50′ but this one looks beautiful as well.

3. A beautiful Coat

At the lastest when snow falls, a cape might be too cold. This is the time when I put my Hell Bunny coat with fake fur collar on wich I already showed you here. This year, I want to buy a new one, maybe this.

4. Pretty retro Boots

In early fall one can wear pumps, but when it gets colder outside I love to wear my favourtie boots “Rosie Lea” by Irregular Choice; find similar here.

5. Cute Rubber Boots

It’s raining a lot in autumn here in Germany so cute rubber boots are definitely a good investment. You can shop them here.

6. A stylish Umbrella

No rain outfit is complete without an umbrella. I bought mine at TopVintage. Read a full review here.

7. A cozy Cashmere Sweater

On rainy days I love staying at home and drinking lots of tea. A beautiful cashmere pullover keeps me warm and looks good which is perfect if some rings the bell or you have to go out. 😉 What about this beautiful jumper in light pink?

8. Accessories for Fall

Another must-have for fall are gorgeous accessories. You will find beautiful jewelery at Glitter Paradise (read more here) and matching hair flowers at Sophisticated Lady (read more here).

9. Whool and Corduroy Skirts

On cool autumn days, skirts made of whool or corduroy are perfect to keep you warm while looking stylish. You will find inspiration in this and this blog post.

10. Classy Nylon Stockings

I wear nylon stockings all year long, but for different reason: In summer they mainly finish my vintage outfits, while in fall they keep my legs warm. You will find wonderful stockings at Secrets in Lace for example.

  1. A very nice post, I love these tip posts. I really need to get some very pretty vintage styled gloves this fall and I also want to buy a new winter coat as well. I’ve got Hell Bunny Colleen coat in burgundy and Trixi coat in baby pink, but I want a more neutral color, something like camel or beige, with a circle skirt of course to fit those petticoats!
    I’ve also been enjoying wearing stockings, they really make the outfit. I hope to wear them for as long as possible until it gets too cold and I have to wear knit tights to keep my legs warm.

  2. How fantastic are Hell Bunny coats?! I love mine and I have got so much wear out of it, the black one you have is so gorgeous. I am looking forward to seeing the black and red one on you when you get it 😀

  3. That would be ten big, resounding yeses from me, too. Fall is my favourite season and dressing for it brings me an immeasurable amount of happiness. I’m really looking forward to reconnecting with all of these awesome style elements again, too (some of which I’ve already started to wear, as the days gradually grow nippier).

    Great post, dear gal!
