It's time to start thinking about fall wardrobe pieces! It's crazy to think about...but exciting, because fall clothing is my absolute favorite. I've put together a few basic pieces that are great to have in your closet.
Bottoms: 1, 2, 3: I am one of the those people that changes into sweatpants the second I walk into my house. I like to be cozy. A thick pair of leggings (the kind that doesn't look like a pair of tights) and a great pair of jeans are great to have. I wear jeans occasionally, but am not a huge fan of them...this pair of Loft jeans (#3) feels exactly like leggings. I can wear them all day. (Here's a post with me wearing them.) It's also good to have a skirt like this in your closet. Something neutral enough to go with a ton of things, but a fun enough color to "make" an outfit.
Tops: 1, 2: I can't express to you enough how much your closet needs a sharp, white, button-up shirt. It's great for layering or for wearing with a patterned/colorful bottom. Plaid is also super big this fall, and is surprisingly really versatile. I'll be showing my plaid button up in a few weeks.
Accessories: 1, 2: This scarf has the same qualities as the skirt. It needs to be neutral enough to wear with a lot of outfits, but fun enough to stand on it's own if needed. A pair of tights is also really great for the fall, and can help take a lot of your spring/summer dresses to the next season. You can see some examples of that here.
Shoes: 1, 2: Ankle boots are so in this year...and good thing, because they're adorable! Even thought ankle boots are the big thing, riding boots are still great to have. I don't think a day went by last year that I didn't wear mine.
Sweaters: 1, 2: I wear my plain grey sweater all the time during the fall/winter. (See outfit here) It's an essential piece to layer or to let stand alone with a fun skirt or pair of pants. You'll also need a long top to go with those leggings, (the second sweater pictures), and this is a great one for that.
Outerwear: 1, 2: If you don't have this black LC blazer from Kohl's, save your Kohl's cash and get it asap! Dress it up or down...you will wear it all the time. A cute cardigan is also a great addition to your wardrobe. I see a black cardigan recommended often..and I agree...but I've gotten a lot of wear out of my navy polka dot cardi.
Most of these items are essential for your fall wardrobe because they can be worn in so many ways.
What is one clothing item that you can't go without during the fall season?
