As summer winds down and we begin to put our tank tops and shorts away, it’s time to evaluate our fall fashion staples. From boots to outerwear, the following five must-have fall staples are ones you need to keep in your closet.

1. Wool Blazers

Nothing says fall more than a stylish wool blazer. You can wear a hip-length tweed blazer made of soft wool with jeans, a turtleneck cashmere sweater, and straight-leg jeans tucked into tall boots for a classic country fall look. 

For tall women, wearing a wool blazer with a shorter hemline that hits just above the hips can help to create a lean look. Pair this style of wool blazer with a wool skirt that falls just above the knees with short ankle boots for an elegant ensemble.

2. Boots

You can’t have enough styles of boots for fall. You’ll need ankle boots to pair with jeans, leggings, and short dresses; tall boots to wear with knee-length A-line skirts and straight-leg jeans; and combat-inspired boots to wear with maxi dresses and black jeans. 

If you’re a tall woman, stick to small square-heeled boots, ones with a kitten heel, or flat-soled boots so that you don’t add extra height to your tall frame.

3. Sweaters

Sweaters define fall fashion. You’ll want several styles of sweaters in your wardrobe, from casual cotton pullovers to classy cashmere cardigans. When choosing sweaters for your fall collection, look for bright colors for fun fall events and neutral-colored ones for more upscale gatherings. 

If you have a tall frame, look for sweaters with the proper sleeve length and aren’t too boxy unless you’re going for an urban chic look.

4. Dark Jeans

You want to have dark jeans in colors such as black, indigo, or dark gray as part of your fall staples collection. Dark jeans look fashionable with a variety of tops, from cream-colored sweaters to multicolored flannel shirts. Spice up your dark jean collection with jewel-toned colors such as amethyst, emerald, or ruby red. For a seamless appearance, wear tops and sweaters in similar shades and tones as the jeans.

One of the top fashion tips for tall women is determining the rise of one’s dark jeans. In general, a high rise will flatter your tall height. Make sure to accentuate your waistline for a slimming effect.

5. Shirt Dress

Shirt dresses are one of the top fashion staples for 2021. While this item may sound like an ultra-casual fashion staple, shirt dresses are relatively flexible. 

Put the shirt dress over textured tights and wrap a wide belt around your waist for a chic look. Do you have some pointy-toed tall boots? Use them to complete the look. Finally, you can wear a shirt dress loose with straight-legged jeans and sneakers for casual occasions. Additionally, you can create a spicy outfit with a form-fitting long shirt dress over bare legs paired with high heels.

Build the most appealing fall staples collection to flatter your tall frame with these essential apparel items. Mix and match traditional items with fun current fashion trends, such as colorful jeans, chunky-soled boots, and shirt dresses, to have an up-to-date wardrobe collection.
