While the basic bitches are already out pumpkin-patching with knee-high boots, leggings, ear muffs and PSLs, you’re trying to figure out how to transition from summer to fall. You probably already have the basics I outlined in my summer must have post – like the perfect linen tee and a cross-body bag. Those staple items will be perfect for fall layers – so while the jorts & sandals may have to get tucked away, most other pieces are transformative and are still relevant as the season changes.
These 6 items are perfect additions to your wardrobe for fall – and it’s a simple way to organize a shopping strategy for fall without completely breaking the bank or falling for trends that won’t last more than a season. You should already have a fall coat that you love, as well as scarves, beanies and fun socks. Pair these 6 refreshed items with your classic favorites and boom – you’re cool enough to get a PSL and not end up on a Buzzfeed list called something like 11 Typical Basic Girls Instagram Posts for Fall.
1. The Perfect Flannel
To wear buttoned & tucked in, open and with layers or tied around your waist with a sweater & skinnies.
My picks: Straight Size: Madewell Boyfriend Flannel | Plus Size: ASOS Curve Plaid Flannel
2. Black Jeans with a Twist
Either distressed black skinnies or boyfriend jeans – or leather paneled black skinnies. Simple black jeans with some detail or twist to go with everything.
My Picks: Straight Size: Distressed Boyfriend Jeans from Nordstrom | Plus Size: ASOS Curve Ripped Knee Skinnies
3. Updated Booties
An updated pair of short boots with little to no heel – for comfy wearing throughout the day. Pick either brown or black – whichever one your closet is missing.
My Picks: Black Booties: Madewell Nico Bootie | Brown Booties: Top Shop Vintage Booties
4. Dark Stripes
Stripes are always in, we always need a little bit of Parisian in our closets no matter the season. Instead of your classic white & black stripe, try a darker grey & black.
My Picks: Straight Size: J.Crew Linen Swingy Stripe Shirt (on sale!) | Plus Size: Nordstrom Stripe Block Tee
5. Relaxed Knit
A knit sweater that is perfectly relaxed and makes you want to drink cocoa and watch Miracle on 34th Street. Find a simple one, with some interesting but subtle details.
My Picks: Straigtht Size: Madewell Uphill Pullover Sweater (it’s a splurge but it’s INCREDIBLE) | Plus Size: ASOS Curve Mustard Relaxed Sweater
