Over the summer (p)leather boots can seem especially uncomfortable, but when the temperature starts to drop and the crunchy leaves become ever more enticing, it's time to slap them back on! There are boots for every style, from Trad Goth to Gothic Lolita, and they make for a great addition to your outfits. If you're looking to Goth them up a bit more, treat them like an extension of your favorite leather DIY jacket and paint, pin, or otherwise decorate them to suit your needs.
Speaking of jackets, why not go out and find one that you adore? It doesn't have to be leather, it can be any style. Of course, they do tend to be a bit expensive around this time of the year, but checking thrift stores and sales racks will generally give you a ton of options. I haven't been paying attention to this years trends but I think military was on the list 1-3 years ago so you'll be able to find that for discounted prices, probably.
Maybe it's just the fact that I'm going back to school but I warm up to accessories that include books and other reading materials. So, when looking for accessories, try checking out necklaces that look like books, bubble jewelry that includes novel pages, a clutch or purse made out of an old hard-back book, or maybe hair accessories (like roses made out of book pages.)
Are you guys excited for autumn? How will you be adjusting your closets for the season, if at all?
