Essential #1: Leather Leggings
While Proper Girls prefer timeless and classic pieces, we are also fashion forward, confident and bold, this is why my first Proper Girl fall essential is a must-have! Leather leggings scream edge but can still be sophisticated and chic. They are perfect for a night out with the girls, a dinner date, or depending on your office environment, you can even sport them as trendy workplace attire.
Essential #2: Feminine Blouse
Being a connoisseur of all things frilly the next Proper Girl fall essential is the Feminine Blouse. Whether the blouse is silk, cotton, patterned, or ruffled, every Proper Girl needs a couple of these in her closet. The feminine blouse is the "go to" essential that can be worn in so many different ways and on so many different occasions. A feminine blouse translates well whether you’re having brunch, running errands, and pretty much anywhere your day takes you.
Essential #3: The Cap
The Proper Girl is able to handle it all and does so seamlessly, or at least, we try to look like we can. Chic and Effortless, that’s the goal. This brings us to our next essential: the Cap. Proper Girls are always on the go and yet, we manage to stay on trend, even on bad hair days. That's because our secret weapon is a super cute cap. During those in between hair appointments, a simple and chic cap can be your life line. But even on good hair days the cap can add flare to any look.
Essential #4: Flare Jean
The Proper Girl does everything with flare and that includes her jeans. Black, denim, or even corduroy, this is a must-have for your fall wardrobe. We just love pushing the fashion limit, and will try any trend fearlessly. Proper Girls do it with flare or they don't do it at all!
Essential #5: White Blouse (yes, we LOVE blouses)
Nothing says Proper Girl like a beautiful crisp white blouse. There's just something about a fresh white blouse that makes any girl feel powerful and ready to take on whatever comes her way. That's why its a no brainer essential piece for the Proper Girl.
Essential #6: The Investment Piece
The investment piece is a classic essential. Whether your investment piece is a pair of shoes, handbag or jewelry, every Proper Girl should have a least one item that is quality and timeless. It can be a family heirloom or a piece that you’ve responsibly saved up for, either way, a good investment piece can last decades and make a lasting impression.
Essential #7: Fedora Hat
Sleek, stylish, and simple are words every Proper Girl lives by. All three of these describe our next essential piece perfectly. Different from the Cap, the Fedora adds a different kind of sass. It instantly jazzes up any look and can be paired brilliantly with shorts or jeans, definitely a must- have this season.
Essential #8: Mini Bags
Mini bags are cute and sweet just like the Proper Girl. While you may have plenty of handbags in your closet from large totes, to evening clutches, mini bags are on trend and will make an adorable addition to your Fall wardrobe.
Essential #9: Booties
I love fall weather and even more than that, I love fall fashion! If you’re anything like me, you cannot wait to wear booties, from open-toe, to platforms or even wedges, I love them all! Every Proper Girl needs a good pair of booties this fall.
