Fall is finally here, which means transitional sweaters, cozy flannels, and a colorful palette of crisp, autumnal shades. However, if you have sensitive skin, this isn’t always reason to celebrate. Itchy wool and scratchy fabrics are no fun. The good news is that building a fall wardrobe with soft, cuddly clothes that don’t irritate your skin is easier than you think. This season, it’s all about wardrobe staples and building blogs that make you feel confident and comfortable.
Keep It Cozy in Cotton Knits
Chic sweaters are an absolute must when braving the fall chill, but wool and synthetic materials are on the out list for those with sensitive skin. Opting for a 100% cotton sweater is the perfect solution for staying comfy and keeping skin issues at bay. We suggest an easy-going, oversized sweater keeps you warm (and doesn’t require sucking anything in).
Pick the Perfect Wide Leg Pant
Wide leg pants are hot, hot, hot this season. Super versatile and super comfortable, they elevate your style game exponentially, pair well with almost everything, and look good on everybody (and by that we mean every body). Better still, their wide leg reduces friction and lets skin breath, which means less irritation for sensitive skin.
Midi Skirt Moment
The midi skirt is having a moment… and thank goodness, because if you’re among those who want to wear a skirt but no longer go above the knee, have varicose or spider veins, or just aren’t interested in crossing their legs all day, this is the skirt for you. Falling mid-calf, these skirts pair perfectly with flats and boots.
Elevate Your Look with Silk Shirts
If you’re looking for autumn-approved tops that keep you warm without irritating your skin, silk is a great option. Why? Because it helps regulate body temperature and is super soft on the skin.. Dressed up or down, a silk blouse adds a luxe feel to any outfit.
Dress Down in a Casual Cotton Tee
Layering is the key to a functional fall outfit, and what better base layer is there than a classic cotton t-shirt? It keeps you cool, and is about as easy to style as fashion gets. Wear it under a cardigan for a relaxed look, or pair it with an oversized blazer for a more professional feel.
