10 Fall Wardrobe Basics Everyone Needs
Fall is around the corner, and I’m about to really start dressin’. However no one can really start dressin’ without having a wardrobe full of basics. Basics are essential for any wardrobe because they’re the building blocks of every outfit! You can’t create looks without them. So, here is my list of 10 fall wardrobe basics everyone needs!
HOW TO BUILD A FALL WARDROBE WITH BASICS
1. black turtleneck
A well-fit black turtleneck is essential for the fall because you can wear it by itself, or layer it for colder days! They’re super versatile and you can create many different looks with them. Check out how I styled black turtlenecks in my 15 Fall Outfit Ideas video.
2. LIGHT COLORED TURTLENECK
While black technically matches with everything, a light color might match better. For example: if you’re putting together an outfit with a lighter color palette, a light colored turtleneck might make the look more cohesive than a black turtleneck. Choose a color that you like! The turtleneck you choose could be gray, beige, white, etc.
3. t-shirts for layering
T-shirts are necessary not only for the fall, but for every season. You can wear them alone during spring & summer, and use them as layering pieces for the fall & winter. Make sure to choose a neckline that you love! I personally prefer crewneck necklines.
4. PULLOVER SWEATSHIRT OR SWEATER
These are great for lazy days & layering!
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Most of you reading this probably already have one. In the unfortunate event that you don’t, here are some options:
6. LIGHT JACKET
You’ll need one of these to just throw on over an outfit if it gets a little chilly. Now the type of light jacket you choose will mostly depend on where you live. I would personally recommend a denim or leather/moto jacket. If you live in a colder climate where it rains a lot, try an anorak or rain coat!
7. OVERSIZED BLAZER
Some people might disagree on this one, but it’s the perfect topper that pulls any look together. Especially a casual one! It may or may not be your style, but I think everyone should at least look into it.
8. ANKLE BOOTS
Find a pair of ankle boots that are more timeless and classic in style, like Chelsea boots.
9. PERFECT FIT JEANS
Out of all of the items on this list, I’d recommend investing the most money into a pair of perfect fit jeans. Why? Because you’ll wear them during every season, in almost every outfit, and a good pair will last you many years. They don’t necessarily need to be skinny jeans! Perfect fit jeans can be mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, straight leg jeans, cropped jeans, etc. but they should fit your body perfectly! I’d recommend going into the store to buy these instead of online. Regardless, here are couple of options that I like:
10. FASHION SNEAKERS
Fashion sneakers are essential for those lazy, dressed down, casual days. Dad sneakers are super trendy right now. Otherwise, I’d recommend a white leather or canvas sneaker because they’re super versatile. (keep in mind that white leather is much easier to clean than white canvas)
