As a 20-something in the beginning stage of adulthood, I am stockpiling the basics in my life — kitchen tools, household appliances, furniture, etc. And one area I’ve been especially focused on is my wardrobe. I love a good trend as much as the next girl, but I still needed the staples to mix-and-match in a cohesive, organized, well-edited closet.
I had one very specific rule: It had to be something that I could mix into at least three different looks. So in that spirit, I put together a guide of versatile Fall pieces that can serve as the basis of an entire wardrobe. Take a look at five of my favourites:
A denim jacket and/or (faux) leather jacket will always be Fall staples — whether you’re wearing a dress, trousers, jeans, or skirt.
If you’re looking for a crisp timepiece that’s not only accurate but also slim and weightless, The Debut is right up your alley. The bordeaux is without a doubt a fall tone and should accent your outfit in all ways possible.
Stay a step ahead of the curve by investing in the mid-calf boot. This style provides a fresh complement to the season’s skirts and cropped denim. I dare you to detour from a classic and try metallic instead.
When it comes to fall, there’s nothing more irresistible than the perfect turtleneck sweater. Especially if you live in colder climates, investing in a good cashmere sweater is a must.
Layer your poncho over a pair of denim with thigh-high boots for a casual chic fall fit.
