No season feels more like a fresh start than fall. Maybe it’s all the new clothes in stores or memories of heading back to school, but suddenly you want to take a long, hard look at your closet. Before you go crazy and decide you need to buy all the latest trendy pieces, take a step back and reassess your wardrobe. The smartest upgrade comes in the form of refreshing your basics in favor of new staples.
Today I want to share with you some essential Fall wardrobe pieces that I feel every woman should have in her closet. As I was browsing through my closet yesterday I realized that I have some basic pieces that mix and match around a lot with other pieces to create a completely different look.
To me a wardrobe essential is sort of like a blank canvas in which more outfits can be built off of. Without these essentials you will probably feel like something is missing from your closet. Essentials can be worn on several different occasions, without sacrificing style. They can also help multiply your current outfits. With these basic 5 wardrobe essentials you should be able to create at least 40 different outfits!
THE STATEMENT LOAFER
Refresh your shoe collection with on-trend seasonal shades, like these fringed metallic cracked-leather loafers which I adore.
THE LAYERING PIECE
Especially if you live in colder climates, investing in a ultra soft, live-in sweater is a must. In gorgeous gray, white and tan, this two-tone metallic cardigan, which is selling out FAST, is a refreshing alternative to a basic solid.
A great trench coat is arguably as classic as the LBD and is a practical essential to any wardrobe! The modern trench has become synonymous with Burberry, as the brand has cultivated and perfected its design. The trench coat is timeless and so versatile; you can literally wear it forever.
You might never need to buy a new parka jacket again—THIS will have any other standard military style number beat. Here are a few more of my favorite parka jackets that just hit the stores.
THE STATEMENT BAG
A statement bag can transform an outfit. It can take your ensemble from zero to ten with one shoulder toss. It shows style, sophistication, and can literally act as a shield against the world. What do all great statement bags have in common? They are so special, that they will give every look the final touch. So unique that they will always be the center of attention and never go out of fashion.
