Cute Cozy Outfit Ideas | Pacific Northwest Fall Wardrobe Staples

Alaska is known for its long Winter season and short Summer, Spring, and Fall seasons. But that doesn’t mean we don’t celebrate each season with a bang! Oddly enough this year’s Autumn season has surpassed the usual two-week commitment and it has been so wonderful. With snow being on forecast for next week, I decided to create a Fall Outfits blog post for Autumn’s last hurrah. I created a list of my wardrobe staple pieces that’s perfect for my fellow Alaskans and for anyone who lives in the Pacific North West area during the Fall season.

1. Sweaters

Big, small, large, tall. We want them all! Unlike the beautiful sunny weather of LA, the Pacific North West has other plans when it comes to the Fall. The weather temperatures have dropped and the leaves are golden. Fall is all about sweaters.

2. Large Knit Cardigan

Who doesn’t own a large comfy cardigan? These are my favorite because you can dress up or down cardigans like these and (if you are a bargain buyer like me) these are hugely discounted after the winter season.

3. Scarves

When it gets chilly my favorite outfit accessories are scarves. My favorite scarf is this large fluffy one I got at a local consignment store. The scarf is larger than me!

4. Boots

Boots galore. Depending on where you are from, boots sizes vary. Alaska’s falls consist of rain, rain, and more rain so it’s important to find boots that are stylish and functional. I have a variety of sizes from ankle to over the knee and staple colors (like black and brown) are a must because they literally match with every outfit.

5. Leggings

It is essential to have a good pair of leggings. Even on days where I have to dress professional, wearing leggings can warm up the legs from the chilly weather.

      Thanks Sharon! Yay for us North Westerners. Winter is coming (it barely snowed last night) so I’m definitely bundling up. Hope you’re having a great Fall season!
