5 Fall Closet Staples from Backcountry

This post is sponsored by Backcountry and ShopStyle.

Zach and I are taking the girls to Montana next month and I’m on the hunt for stylish fall apparel and wearable separates to take with me. Backcountry, my go-to for all things outerwear, accessories, and ski gear, also carries an impressive selection of women’s lifestyle apparel. Their curated selection of women’s apparel & footwear has a host of versatile fall trends that you can wear straight from apple picking, exploring or sightseeing to dinner.

What I Bought from Backcountry

I recently purchased a few items from Backcountry to take with us on our trip that I think would make excellent additions to your fall wardrobe. I’ve outlined these on-trend, wearable items below with a few tips for fall styling.

Not forgetting about the family, I also purchased Zach this shirt, another pair of these pants and these sunglasses.

We all know little kids’ fall gear makes me weak at the knees so I couldn’t resist picking up the girls this new fleece and these Sorel boots which are so incredibly cute!

5 Fall Trends to Add to Your Closet

Waterproof Wedge Booties // These Sorel boots are the boots that I consistently wear all fall and winter. I’ve worn them for 12 hours at a football game, to concerts, to apple picking. They’re great any time I want a stylish, comfortable bootie when conditions are wet, rainy, or snowy. I love the wedge and the two-tone sides. Last year I wore the color “Ash Brown” on repeat and this year I opted for “Elk”. I find that they run true-to-size.

Cozy Cardigans // Be prepared to see me in this cardigan all fall long. I love the look of a cozy cardigan for fall but very rarely find a cut and a style that doesn’t make me feel too preppy. The chunky knit, short crop and twin pockets, makes this one the perfect addition to any top, tee, or sundress.

Versatile Pants // If you are heading out for an activity where you will be walking a lot, finding yourself in the elements or potentially breaking a sweat then you need these pants. They are the perfect pants for when you want to look like you’re wearing skinny jeans but want something more versatile and don’t want to be hot. They are styled to look like jeans but made stretchy, quick-drying and water-resistant fabric. I love them! For sizing, I wear a 6, regular.

Every-day Tees // If you have noticed me in a grey tee on Instagram lately, it’s most likely this one. It is so comfortable and the perfect cut, length and weight. I have worn it so often that I also ordered the black. It’s not too often that you can find a tee with a high neck that isn’t a crop or a boatneck. When I am layering tees under outerwear or cardigans in the fall, I prefer the look of a high neck or a deeper v. This is also a great tee for daily wear and layering. If you’re looking for a long-sleeve option, I have this top in black and orange. It’s a great fit and a cozy fabric. I get a medium and can tuck it in or leave it out for different looks.

Wide-Brimmed Hats // My favorite summer hat is now available in felt for fall. If you need me, I will be channeling my inner rancher and rocking this hat non-stop. I have had the straw version for 3+ years and it is the best hat! I wear a medium for reference and would consider myself to have a fairly large head.

Warm Vests for Layering // It wouldn’t be a post about fall trends without a Patagonia vest. Zach thinks I have a mild addiction and I can’t say I disagree. The Los Gatos is one of my top styles and the new “Hazy Purple” color is just too good! I also love this vest as a lighter weight option.
