As the leaves turn to shades orange and golden yellow, it’s time for all things fall babes… including updating your wardrobe for the season! Welcome to my fall 2023 look guide, all sourced locally in Denver and spotlighting local brands and boutiques while staying on top of the latest fashion trends. Let’s dive right in my loves and hopefully you feel inspired to embrace the season’s unique style all the while, supporting local businesses here in Colorado!
Cozy Knits and Sweaters
Fall fashion wouldn’t be complete without cozy knits and sweaters. This year, we’re loving the collections from local boutiques like this gem I found at Meraki Moon. Chunky cable-knit sweaters in rich, earthy tones are a must-have. Pair them with slim-fitting jeans or a flowing skirt for a comfortable yet stylish look.
Earthy Tones and Moody Hues
For the fall season, embrace the earthy palette with colors like rust, olive, and deep burgundy. One of my favorite local spots, Kismet, has a stunning collection this year that epitomizes this trend. From coats to dresses and accessories, Kismet offers a variety of pieces that seamlessly blend into the season’s ambiance.
Fall 2023 is all about sustainability. What better way to show support for the environment then by shopping at local boutiques committed to eco-friendly practices. I recently stumbled upon Boutique Marguerite and their mission is all about allowing you to NOT have to choose between looking fabulous and living an echo-conscious lifestyle – you guys hav to check them out!
Leather and Faux Leather
Leather and faux leather are making a strong comeback this fall per usual babes. This cutie midi skirt can be found at Stitch along with an array of other leather jackets and accessories to help you rock this trend. Pair a leather jacket with a floral dress for a fantastic contrast.
Blazers are such a staple and so versatile, they never go out of style. This fall, opt for tailored blazers in houndstooth or plaid patterns or go with something that is a staple wardrobe piece and easily layer it with what you’ve got, like this cute crop blazer from Ruby Jane!
Accessorize with a Local Flair
You KNOW this is my all time go to babes, anytime I need to spice up a look I add all the accessories! Source jewelry, scarves, and handbags from local spots and add a personal touch to your fit. A-Line Boutique has SO many options to accessorize your fit loves, and I just adore this small lime bag they have right now – an easy way to jazz up your look.
Jumpsuits and Rompers
Jumpsuits and rompers are a hassle-free way to achieve a stylish look and always a fall staple! Inspyre Boutique has plenty of these options for you babes! These one-piece wonders are comfortable and effortlessly chic. Psst… these babies translate to spring really well also!
In addition to plaid blazers, plaid overcoats are a chic addition to your fall wardrobe. Look for local finds like this cutie at Melrose and Madison on South Pearl St.. They also have a decently wide variety of plaid overcoats in different colors and styles. They are perfect for adding a touch of retro charm to your ensemble this year, plus you never know when you will need that extra layer!
Cropped cardigans are a trendy and versatile addition to your fall wardrobe. This adorable, caramel mock-neck is available at Ruby Jane and giving all the fall feels. Pair this effortlessly with high-waisted pants and skirts.
All of your footwear needs can be sources locally babes. Some boutiques even carry bigger brands and fashion trends that you might be on the hunt for this year. Whether you prefer knee-high leather boots, ankle booties, or chunky-soled shoes, you’ll find the perfect pair to step into autumn with confidence all the while supporting local. Im loving the chunky look this year as well as the comfort and wanted to highlight these chunky leather loafers from Gracie’s Boutique!
In Fall 2023, it’s all about mixing local charm with global trends. By supporting local brands and boutiques, you not only stay ahead of the fashion curve but also contribute to your community’s growth… who doesn’t want that babes?!
