Your Guide to Fall Style in the Mile Square {And Where to Shop Locally}

Written by:

Most days, being in a fall state of mind takes a little bit more than a PSL and a chilly breeze. To spark our seasonal interest, all it took was a stroll down Washington Street to get that festive fall feeling — pumpkins, sweaters, scarves — October we are ready for you!

*note: our tiny succulent friends definitely helped put us in the right state of mind for this post*


Now, for the most important part of the summer-to-fall transition… staying warm can be synonymous with being trendy {dare if you will}. We all know bundling is our friend in the snow-filled months of winter, but layers also contribute to a happy and healthy – let’s not get sick because we didn’t wear a coat – fall season.

SHOP LOCAL: Townhouse Shops {620 Washington Street}

Check out this rainbow pallet of top-layer-worthy vests found locally at Townhouse:


SHOP LOCAL: Dor L’ Dor {413 Washington Street}

Also, these fuzzy finds at Dor L’ Dor will help you transition right through fall and into winter…if we dare to think that far ahead.


Has anyone else noticed how trendy insulated water bottles have become lately? It’s almost like people have started to coordinate with their outfits – and we dig it.

SHOP LOCAL: Luna Rosa {1218 Washington}

If you’re as indecisive as us, there’s an entire array of Swell waterbottle signature styles to pick from at Luna Rosa home store – who knew? Perfect for gifts, too.


Another big win for the fall season is finding the perfect pair of boots, and after this past summer, we can’t wait to avoid weekly pedicures and slip into a pair of comfy boots…

SHOP LOCAL: Peper & Parlor {938 Washington Street}

These purple lace-up boots were hard to ignore when walking through the door at Peper & Parlor, and their {bootie and hat} neighbors were equally as tempting.


Patchwork and embroidery have also made their way back into the hip trends of the season, taking their place on denim everywhere, from jackets to jeans and beyond!

SHOP LOCAL: Peper & Parlor {938 Washington Street}

These adorable decorated denim were spotted at Peper & Parlor, and we’ve also noticed a few embroidered Pilcro pairs hit the hangers at our local Anthropologie as well.


SHOP LOCAL: Ruby and Jenna {537 Washington Street}

If you’re looking for the standard classic denim – we assume you’ll find a pair in this shelf, which resembles a denim library if there was such a thing, at Ruby and Jenna uptown.


Getting out of bed gets harder and harder as the sun likes to sleep-in during the colder months {just like us} but we think we have a cure to avoid those extra sleep-in days and get you out of bed on time…

SHOP LOCAL: Washington General Store {509 Washington}

Furry blankets and robes are stocked high at Washington General store. Might as well grab one for a friend too, they make an awesome {and much-appreciated} gift!


Now here’s a trend we didn’t see coming back anytime soon, but here we are, telling you that belt buckles are back in style. We know, Lucky Brand were the major players in the buckle-business back in the day – but now we can find this trend hitting shops everywhere, including right in Hoboken.

SHOP LOCAL: Dear Hannah {503 Washington Street}

These double-buckles are trendy and cute, a variety of options spotted at Dear Hannah.


Another accessory trend we saw at Dear Hannah were the recent blogger-obsession of fringe earrings and also miniature state necklace – how cute is the little New Jersey shape, amiright?


Now we didn’t forget about your Hoboken home needing some festive fall finds, and suede pillows are all the rage this cozy season…

SHOP LOCAL: Luna Rosa {1218 Washington Street}

Find this full assortment of colorful suede pillows at Luna Rosa, there’s a color to match every room!


Now that you’ve got the full DL on fashionable finds in Hoboken, from your closet to your couch, tell us where else you love to shop this season! Do you have a favorite comeback style?

Genna moved to Hoboken upon graduating from the University of Tennessee to start her Marketing career at HGTV, and is most currently at The Knot in downtown Manhattan. To Genna, there's nothing better than cheering on UT football, soaking in warm sunny weather on her balcony, and watching starry-skied movies on Pier 13. You may have spotted Genna as a customer associate at Anthropologie ...that is, when she's not doing Hot Yoga or punching bags at CKO! Most days, you can find Genna circling the Mile Square on an early morning run or attempting to justify her shopping habits along Washington Street.
