Fall’s New Releases as a Fall Capsule Wardrobe
This is obviously not an exhaustive list, but I wanted to write about some of the new fall releases that I’m excited about and thought it might be fun to compare them to fall clothes because I AM A FASHION BLOGGER NOW. Just wanted to yell that like Harriet the Spy. I did actually dive down the rabbit hole of clothes on Amazon, which I’ve never done before, and now I’m thinking this might be a problem because this stuff is cute. Links are affiliate, as usual, and you guys make my day using them. Thank you so much! Anyways, books as their fashion counterpart, here we go:
- Classic Levi’s jeans as Sarah Donati’s Where the Light Enters
- This story about two female doctors in the late 1800s seems like it falls solidly into the category of being a good option for just about everyone. Thank you to Berkley Publishing for my review copy, which I’m eagerly anticipating reading soon once I’m in the mood for a cozy tome!
- Rust-colored, cozy sweater as Erin Morgenstern’s The Starless Sea
- This one, by the author of The Night Circus, feels like it’s a safe bet to being popular with most people and very of the moment.
- Brown leather booties as Elizabeth Strout’s Olive, Again
- Speaking of safe, solid bets. Strout is such a talented writer and I can’t decided whether or not to reread Olive Kitteridge first.
- Brown leather mules as Lauren Michele Jackson’s White Negroes: When Cornrows Were In Vogue and Other Forms of Cultural Misappropriation
- Just like these shoes add a touch of smartness to your outfit, those of us who are white need to educate ourselves. This one sounds sharp and thoughtful.
- Flowy, mustard yellow, floral dress as Jacqueline Woodson’s Red at the Bone
- Something a little artistic feeling for Woodson’s latest that is sure to showcase her deft writing.
- Coffee colored, paper bag waist pants as Ta-Nehisi Coates’ The Water Dancer
- These have a touch of whimsy, but still look grounded and smart. The blurb for this book sounds brilliant.
- Linen, tie-front top as Angie Cruz’s Dominicana
- This story feels both classic and fresh with writing that’s both simple and packs a punch. I loved this one and would recommend it to so many of you- the perfect staple in your fall reading wardrobe. Thank you to Flatiron Books for my review copy! My review is here.
- Black scalloped cut-out shirt as Stephen King’s The Institute
- An edgier take on a classic. This one sounds so creeeeepy a.k.a. I won’t be reading it, but you might love it.
- Plaid flannel as Margaret Atwood’s The Testament
- The one you’ll be seeing everywhere ; ).
- Cute blanket scarf as Pages & Co.: The Bookwanderers
- I am sooo excited to read this one (she can wander in and out of books!!). I have a feeling it’s going to feel oh so cozy and classic and I can’t wait to wrap myself up in it (get it?). Thank you to Penguin Kids for my review copy!
- Navy trench coat as Bella Ellis’s The Vanished Bride: A Bronte Sisters Mystery
- A staple is needed for this fun mystery that I’m in the middle of reading right now. It gives you such a great sense of the Bronte siblings, while maintaining that classic mystery feel, and I’m really enjoying it, just like I smile every time I put on my own navy trench. Thank you to Berkley Publishing for my review copy!
