When it comes to wardrobing, you gotta get the good stuff.
What in the world did she just say, you ask? Honestly I just loved the way that sounded – but here’s something that makes more sense: when you’re building your fall wardrobe, make sure you start with the staples. Problem area #1 occurs when you start buying all the fun stuff, and suddenly you’re left with the “million clothes and nothing to wear” syndrome. What’s missing? The good stuff, also known as the staples. These are the items that are your foundation for every outfit. They transition from day to night, and they are versatile, allowing for more than one wear. They’re simple, and sometimes go unnoticed; but they can make or break your everyday wardrobe (you know – the one you’re wearing e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y). They are the good stuff and oftentimes they’re overlooked.
I’m going to walk you through my fall staple list. Remember, these aren’t the fun earrings or the fuzzy sweaters I’m posting on my Instagram. A lot of the pieces are casual, and they’re great for layering, for everyday throw-on wear. And they’ll make an outfit … and sometimes without, they’ll break an outfit.
MULES FLATS & SLIDES
because they’re comfortable and make every outfit that much more chic
because neutral means way more wear
because they don’t go out of style & stand out when layered under coats and sweaters
THE CAMEL COAT
guess why? because it goes with … everything
TOPS THAT CAN BE LAYERED
because I promise you’ll wear tops like these the most
A NEUTRAL TOTE
because it holds all the goods, and complements your #ootd
THE T-SHIRT DRESS
because with booties + a scarf = comfy-chic
because you are human and you love them, and guess what: the sweatpant look is so in
because we all just want to be comfortable while cute
because you’ll reach for them time and time again, I promise
because they make a boring outfit fun
ONE BIG OVERSIZED SWEATER
because you can fit anything in there … anything
