Heads up! Another fall wish list is coming in hot! We started off the season with 50 New Arrivals, moved onto Fall Fashion Finds, and most recently, browsed through 24 Fall Dresses Under $100. In case it’s not obvious enough already, I’m seriously swooning over this year’s selection of fall apparel. And while there is no shortage of trendy tops and statement sweaters on the racks this year, sometimes I find it’s best to start each season by stocking up on basics. You know, those essentials that you’ll wear on repeat all season long. Knowing me, I’ll find my fall uniform early on and rarely stray from it, so sticking to the basics is typically my best strategy for to ensure I’ll put all my new purchases to good use. This year, the fall basics I’m shopping for are neutral knit sweaters, blouses to pair with high waisted denim, and booties to wear with dresses or jeans. There are plenty of options to choose from below, so what are you waiting for?! Get started building your cool weather wardrobe!
The Best Basics for Fall
Madewell Plaid Peplum Top // This top is the cutest ever. Love the peplum and the ruffles!
Beige Pull On Booties // This booties are a bit of a splurge, but they were too chic not to include! If you are looking to buy a solid pair of booties that will stay in style year after year, these would be a great option.
Neutral Plaid Blazer // I would pair this slightly oversized blazer with jeans, heels, and a tee. I also love this one with a slightly bolder print!
Amazon Sunglasses // You’d better believe my trusty $10 Amazon sunglasses will be following me into the fall!
Tie Neck White Blouse // This essential, classic blouse would be great to take from work to date night!
Wide Sleeve Pullover Sweater // This sweater has a relaxed fit and the cutest wide cut sleeves. In love with all three colors!
Snake Print Clutch // Gimme allll the animal print for fall. I’ve been on a leopard kick, but this $38 snake print clutch is too cute to resist.
H&M Shirt Dress // A cute, casual shirt dress for daytime!
Balloon Sleeve Sweater // Balloon sleeve sweaters can be a hit or miss. This one by Madewell looks like a hit to me! All three color options are great for fall & winter.
Mock Neck Sweater // I’m convinced this slouchy sweater was made just for me. I love the mock neck!
Madewell Striped Popover Top // This top would be great for warmer fall days! Pair with high waisted jeans and booties or sneakers.
Leather Booties // Every girl’s gotta have a pair of leather booties for the fall. I love the lower heel on these, and how the color is perfectly warm and neutral.
Button Front Corduroy Skirt // I love a neutral mini skirt to wear with a sweater or blouse & botties! For a slightly less expensive suede version, click here.
