Monthly Shopping Guide: What to Buy in October


fashion blogger mia mia mine wearing a saint laurent college bag and faux leather pants With the first week of October down, it’s already time for another monthly shopping guide! While you may have spent most of September wearing your summer favorites, it’s time to really start thinking about your fall wardrobe needs before it gets too cold outside. I’ve always felt that clothing in the fall needs to be a bit more versatile in order to accommodate the lingering balmy days as well as the sudden surge of cooler temps. This means stocking up on light layers, sweaters, and grabbing hold of heavier textures such as leather and suede. By throwing a few of these options into rotation, you can ensure that your style feels chic and fresh even when you’re all bundled up. I’ve been on the lookout for the best seasonal trends and trusted basics to help you make the most of your fall wardrobe. Scroll ahead for what to buy in October!
