Every fall I complete a “fall favorites” post. It usually involves skinny jeans, a striped shirt, a cute jacket, etc, and so on. Most of you have those things already. If you aren’t sure if you’ve got that covered, you can check out the post (with a video) here. This is for those of you who want to go a bit further with your wardrobe and grab some staples that are timeless and chic. I’ve linked options in every price range to make shopping easy! (I won’t link this many options very often, but anytime I do a “staples” post, I’ll try to link at least 3 options so you can grab something in your preferred price range.)
Navy is a fantastic option, but this year I grabbed a grey wool version. I love how it feels polished but a bit less expected than navy.
Black Suede Pumps
Suede keeps having a moment and these are so much more fun than plain leather. I like a block heel and rounded toe because I typically have traditional stilettos in black leather- this way you don’t feel like you have the same shoe.
I’m all about the skinny jeans normally and I do think they’re the #1 jean you should own, but I LOVE a boyfriend jean. These are cute and ridiculously comfortable. The only issue with boyfriend jeans is that you typically have to go at least a size or two down. Otherwise, you get what my grandma would call “droopy drawers.” Lol, It’s a funny phrase, but you get her point. They should still fit your waist and bottom. Keep sizing down until they fit.
EVERYONE needs a black handbag, you can just decide for yourself how much you want to spend on it. These are chic enough to bring to the office, but durable enough to handle real life. Style tip: get a pebbled leather (not shiny) as those tend to show less wear than a structured bag. They’ll look better longer.
Haha, I know, I know. I can’t help myself. On a serious note, a striped shirt in an unexpected color (not navy or black) adds polish to any look.
They’re called statement for a reason. 😉 I love these because they’re cute, not heavy, and add a bit of focal interest when you can’t or don’t want to wear a necklace. Sometimes a neckline or an occasion make it difficult to discern what length or type of necklace to wear. Solution: statement earrings. These require no necklace. They look great with your hair down or up and really add a lot of style cred with minimal effort.
