It’s time to take stock. Do you have the elements of style? More importantly, do you have the basic essentials? Celebrities like Hilary Duff know how to streamline their morning routine by stocking up on the season’s top wardrobe-makers. You too should anchor your closet with timeless essentials like black pumps, flattering skinny jeans, and classic suede booties.
Invest in a stylish plaid blazer, a feminine silk blouse, and a layers-over-everything cardigan sweater. Finish up with must-have accessories like a floppy fedora, v neck tee, and a structured bag. Mix and match, layer in some fun trends, and go. These pieces will anchor your closet for seasons to come!
Fall’s Best Wardrobe Staples:
1. Vince Raglan Sleeve Cashmere Cardigan
The cozy cardigan was made for autumn. This rich Wine-colored version by Vince fulfills all expectations of comfort and style with its oversized fit, raglan sleeves, and classic lines.
2. ANINE BING Madeline Blazer
Academic lines, after-hours possibilities. A chic blazer works 9-to-5 and then overtime into the weekend. Nothing says fall style quite like a crisp, prep school Houndstooth.
3. SAINT LAURENT Paris Skinny Pointy Toe Pump
Every girl needs a classic pair of black suede pumps and this pair is worth the investment. Crafted in Italy from supple suede with a sleek pointed toe that lengthens your legs. You can wear them with everything from mini skirts, cocktail dresses to cuffed jeans.
4. Rag & Bone Floppy Brim Fedora
A staple of the celebs. Hollywood’s IT girls don’t leave home without their floppy felt hat. Ward off the chill, the drizzle, and the wind with this classically dramatic hat. Check out how Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian styled their fedoras.
5. Vince Slim Fitted Blouse
Although black gets all the credit, navy blue is worthy of the staple color status. Another staple? A feminine silk blouse. Pair with a pencil skirt for the office, wear untucked over skinnies for weekend or date night out. Tunic style with a slim, yet relaxed fit.
6. Levi’s Mile High Skinny Jeans
These black jeans not only go with everything, but they also have the perfect figure-hugging fit (thanks to an impeccable cut and the wonders of stretch denim). They pass for office-appropriate with a blazer and heels but hit the after-hours circuit with a sexy top. Classic 5 pocket cut ensures style longevity.
7. Rag & Bone Harrow Booties
Booties complement any look from skinny jeans to wrap dresses. Most savvy shoppers would agree that Rag & Bone is the holy grail when it comes to stylish ankle boots. After all, this is the brand that created the Newbury boot, a favorite of celebs like Hilary Duff and fashion insiders alike.
8. James Perse Classic Tee
It doesn’t get any more basic than a white v-neck tee. Invest in one that lays flat and layers well. This James Perse takes the cake with its uber-comfy fabrication, slim fit, and scoop neck.
9. ANINE BING Thea Bag:
I’m seriously crushing on this Anine Bing Thea Bag for fall. Like big-time-mega-crush-top-10-for-fall type of crush. Same obsession? Get yours HERE. This croc-embossed leather bag is a roomy essential for travel, work, and play. Its turn-lock front flap seems work satchel ready and the structured silhouette gives it a timeless look minimalists will love.
