When the seasons change it’s time to rearrange your closet and pull things out from the back or out of storage to add back into your wardrobe.
Now that we’ve survived daylight savings and Fall is officially here, I wanted to tackle my Fall essentials for the season.
This isn’t about trends or what’s appearing on magazine covers, it’s more about the timeless, high-quality staples that you’ll be wearing season after season when the air starts to get chilly.
What I love about these staples is that regardless of your style, there’s a version of these pieces that will suit you to perfection. You just have to find it!
Trench coats can be a year-round basic. If you tend towards the classics, you’ll need a timeless khaki trench coat, if you like to make a splash, you may want something edgier like this army green version. So many great options out there for Fall!
I’m not what you’d call a jeans girl. In fact, I’ve had people ask whether I even own jeans. The answer is – Yes. I own jeans and I wear jeans. But only in Fall and Winter.
I’ve found that season after season a solid black or dark-washed denim are the answer to all of my styling questions. They look great with sweaters, they look great tucked into tall boots, and they look great
Some people look amazing in a classic turtleneck – a la Audrey in Funny Face. I, however, do not. But give me a chic little mock turtleneck and I’m a happy girl. They’re perfect for layering this time of year – Whether you like them best paired with jeans and boots or under a cold-weather jumpsuit.
I adore crossbody bags, especially for running errands or for throwing over a little printed dress during the Summer, but come Fall this girl needs some more space. An oversized shoulder bag or tote is especially great if you live in a city like San Francisco where you end up hauling around an umbrella and scarf all season long.
They go just as well with tights and a mini skirt as they do with slim-fitting denim and a perfectly fitted sweater.
What are YOUR Fall wardrobe staples? Am I missing one of your favorites in my list?
