With fall around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your wardrobe for chillier weather. These are just a few great investments because they are classics. They can transcend the seasonal comings and goings. Once you’ve figured out the basics, you can make the outfit pop with jewelry and accessories.
A tailored jacket is fitted to show off your curves and you can wear it with anything from work clothes to casual jeans. A properly fitted jacket accentuates the waistline and smoothes out all body types.
A basic long-sleeved white shirt is a great basic building block to any fall wardrobe. It can be embellished or frilly and works great when layering under jackets, sweaters, or cardigans.
A long, neutral-colored coat has endless possibilities. Unfortunately, fall means rain so you want to make sure you’re adequately protected. If your coat is a neutral color like caramel, you can take it anywhere.
Boots are another fall essential. They keep your feet warm and dry while looking great with everything from jeans and leggings to miniskirts and dresses. A heel height of two inches or less keeps the boots the most trend-proof. Brown goes great with denim, and black matches just about anything.
A sweater or pullover is an excellent way to add some spice to your layering. Put one over your collared shirt or add some jewelry to a turtleneck. Make sure to pick soft snuggly material so you don’t spend your day itching.
Dig out the bigger purses. You’re going to be carrying around more stuff, so make sure you can fit everything you need in your purse. This can include gloves and an umbrella. Classics in black and brown will match everything, or you can spice up a muted outfit with a bold design on the purse.
Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be able to build yourself a classic, trend-proof fall wardrobe of well-made clothes that you can use for years to come.
