Fall Lookbook + Guide

Cape Sweater & Jeans: Forever 21 // Shirt: H&M // Shoes: Spring // Scarf: Random
YAYYYYY! Fall is here :) Okay I may be a little too excited but it really is my favorite season. Not just because of the clothes but the weather, the cozy crisp feeling in the air, hot latte's, beautiful colors and the modest clothes all equal perfection. I probably am attached to it more because my birthday is during dall + its when I met my husband! So this season is just happiness all around. Since it is my favorite season I decided to an extensive lookbook + fall guide for you guys. It's a combination of some old fall looks and some new ones. Many items you may already have from last year, I definitely did! I honestly did not buy too many new items this Fall. Most things you probably already have are high boots, oversized sweaters, infinity scarves, a leather jacket, and fall color-inspiration items (mustard, burgundy, rust). You don't have to do too much this season, just add a few things to your wardrobe and you're good to go! Most of my pieces are from last year such as this leather jacket, cheetah scarf, emerald green bag, and fur vest. Here are a few items that you need to revamp your wardrobe for this Autumn! 

 1. Shades of Gray
Jacket: Random // Gray Hi Lo: Forever 21 // Scarf: H&M 
All shades of gray are in for this fall. Whether its a gray shirt, skirt, jacket, sweater or scarf--make sure to get a gray piece for your wardrobe. I got this super comfy gray hi lo shirt from Forever just a few weeks ago. It also comes in black and maroon and its full sleeves!

2. Boyfriend Jeans
BF Jeans, Cardi, Necklace, Shoes, Scarf: Forever 21 // Bag: Aldo 
Boyfriends jeans made an appearance last year and they sure aren't going anywhere. These are pefect for these warmer fall days and can be paired with sandals, combat boots or booties. I absolutely love this trend. I''ll take loose jeans over skin tight ones any day! I dressed them up above but can be worn casually too with a tee and oversized sweater.

3. Leopard Print
Skirt: H&M // Chambray Shirt: Forever 21 // Scarf: H&M
Animal prints continue to come back every season but in different colors. A basic leopard scarf is perfect for autumn. It adds a pop of print in an everyday outfit like I styled above. Again you see the shades of gray :)

4. Cape Sweater

My favorite new item of this season! The basic sweater has been changed up. It's really hard resisting to buy every long open cardigan! This one from Forever is beyond comfy and just covers all the right parts. If you go to the cardigan section of Forever 21 they have a bunch in different designs, textures and colors. I try to go for more of the basic prints and colors like black and white, beige, black--so I can wear it more often :) If you're going to get any one of the items in this post, get this one!

5.  Leather Jacket
Skirt: H&M // Tribal Top: Forever 21 // Jacket: Random 
I cannot recall how many times I've mentioned a leather jacket. I think I should stop after this! It just is that one item that is all year round and goes with anything for any season. You should already have this!

6. Jewel Tones
Bag & Blazer: H&M // Necklace, Scarf: Forever 21 // Dress: One Clothing at Macys
Jewel tones are most inspired by the colorful leaves of fall: Sapphire, emerald, amethyst, ruby and topaz just to name a few. They also compliment each other well, similar to how I styled above. Definitely get one jewel tone piece in your closet for this fall, whether it be a bag, dress, necklace or hijab!

Similar dress: Maxi 

7. Parka
Jeans & Loafers: Target // Parka, Sweater, Scarf: Forever 21
Can't get enough of these. They have become a staple for the Fall and Spring. It's a perfect light jacket to have. Some are even coming out with fur inside for the colder days coming up. If you're going to get one, I'd say get it in black...well because what else would be better?
Similar Parka: Parka 1, Parka 2

8. Tube Scarf
Jeans, Chambray Top, Vest, Scarf: Forever 21 // Infinity Scarf: Cotton On // Boots: Macys
This may not be needed yet but in a month or two--this will be on your neck everyday! If you're on the northeast or in colder regions, this is a must! It really keeps your neck and chest warm. Get it in a jewel tone or a nice pop of color. It adds a nice touch especially when in the winter most of us are covered in black head to toe!

9. Furrrrr
Boots: Macys // Fur Vest: H&M
Ahhh! The fur vest. This one is tricky. You can easily go from fab to drab with these. If you are going to wear one, everything else should be all black or neutral. You want the fur to pop and since the fur vest is super glam, you don't want too much going on everywhere else. 
Similar Fur Vest: Vest 1, Vest 2

10. Booties
Jeans, Jacket & Scarf: Forever 21// Booties: Target // Button Up: H&M // Necklace: Zara // Bag: Aldo
Booties! I love these. I wanted to invest in some last year but never got around to it. This year since I'm interning at a more professional place these are perfect for the cold weather. Our office tends to be really cold so even with regular loafers it gets chilly. Booties are perfect for that. They're even super cute on night out.

Accessories
1. Dark Lip 
Lipstick: Courtisane by Sephora Rouge      
Lipstick: Crush by Sephora Rouge 
Now we can't forget some extra cute accessories. For makeup in the fall, I really really love a dark lip. It's perfect for those days where you just wear concealer and mascara. The dark lip really just gives that oomph! My favorites for fall are plum and maroon shades.

2. Winter Hues Nails 
Nails: O2M Nail Enamel #649 by Inglot
Nails: I will! by L'Oreal 
I only get to do my nails for a few times but good thing is that winter hues are in for fall too. Grays and whites are the new it colors. Traditional fall colors like maroon and plum are always perfect too! 

3. Statement Necklace
Statement Necklace: Zara
I want to do a post just on statement necklaces. These are just absolutely stunning. Just by itself and with a white tee and jeans is perfect. I got this one above on sale from Zara for only 14.99! My friend just bought me another one from Zara that I CANNOT wait to wear! When you do wear one, remember to keep everything else simple. Also make sure to wear a loose shirt since you'll be pushing your hijab back. Dina Tokio has an awesome hijab tutorial to show them cute necklaces ;)

4. Midi Rings
Midi Rings: Forever 21

If you know me, you know I love love rings. I recently got into necklaces but I have always had a knack for unique rings. When these cute midi rings came out, I knew had to have them. At first they were only available through like etsy or other really expensive outlets. Then finally, Forever, H&m and all of our favorite stories started to carry them as well.

5. Bracelet Ring 

Bracelet-Ring: Call it Spring
So if you anything about desi culture--you now this style was first ours! jk...not really. My mom gave me one that she had from pakistan for my wedding and I saw her wearing similar ones like these when I was younger. What I like about the new trend is that, unlike the desi ones, their more simple and dainty--making it much easier for everyday wear.
