Fall Basics

With any change in season, it is really fun to stock up on the new trending items. I have some posts planned for the next few weeks that will feature many of the biggest Fall trends. But before you buy the trendy items, it’s a good idea to have some great basics for the season. Your fall wardrobe will be built around these basics. These are the items that will be worn numerous times throughout the season. They will also be great for years to come!

One of the first things I reach for when Fall comes, is pixie pants. The pant/legging hybrid are the perfect basic! They work with a multitude of items you already have in your closet! I have worn them here. They pair best with tunic topics and sweaters. The slim fit of pixie pants is perfect for tucking in your favorite boots. They are also incredibly comfortable! One of my favorite weekend outfits is pixie pants, comfy sweater and knee high boots. Beyond the basic black ones, you can find them in all types of colors and some with special details like a leather stripe

 A great pair of booties will get you thru Fall and Winter in style.  I have lots of boots but find that I pull out booties more than any others. They look equally great dressed down with jeans as they do dressed up with tights and a skirt. These options all have a lower heel so they are comfortable enough to be worn all day. After purchasing these Kate Spade booties a few weeks ago (last seen here) I have barely taken them off!! These Madewell ones are pretty similar and a little easier on the wallet.

Rounding out my favorite Fall basics is a cozy sweater in a neutral color. You'll definitely need a few sweaters to get you thru the cold months, but having a few neutral ones will give the most versatility to your wardrobe. Classic cable knits are always a great idea and this one comes in several colors. These sweaters are all great for layering. You can stick with neutrals and layer a classic white button down underneath. If you want to add some color you can go crazy with a patterned or bright colored shirt.
