September is here and that means it’s official; summer is over…at least by fashion standards. Fall fashion has been on our minds since the beginning of August and it’s time for a wardrobe checkup. With fall comes unpredictable weather, which only makes choosing an outfit in the morning that much harder! The key to surviving the transition is having the right staples: those pieces that will always be on your side. We’ve compiled a list of the ultimate staple pieces for fall, from the trendy newcomers to the timeless classics. Have fun!
The White Blouse: White blouses are getting some well-deserved love this season for their versatility and effortless chic.
Culottes: The right pair of culottes exists for every occasion! And yes, you can pull them off!
Sleeveless Jackets: Long, sleeveless jackets are the new go-to for smart layering and major goddess vibes.
Striped Shirt: Striped shirts are true love. From casual to sophisticated, a striped shirt can pull together any look.
The Leather Jacket: The king of layering. Take this classic fall staple to the next level choosing a neutral besides black: burgundies, browns, and grays will do the trick.
The Classic Trench: Trench coats are functional and absolutely timeless. A must-have in wardrobes everywhere!
Booties: Booties are the IT for fall. Wear peep-toes for as long as you can, if only to spite the cold. When the big chill finally sets in, dust off your suede and leather booties. Pair them with ANY outfit, and you’re ready to go.
The “Pop of White:” White kicks have become a major statement. Pair them with an all black or all neutral ensemble for an edgy look, or with blue jeans for a classic feel.
