5 Fall Wardrobe Essentials

**Sarah from The Haute Homemaker, is guest posting!  


The fall season is upon us. This is the time to bring out the pieces that were stored away for the spring/summer, to take note of what you loved from last season, what you didn’t, what should stay in your closet and what should go. But, are you having a hard time trying to figure out where you should start? Have no fear, let me help you. I am sharing the top five pieces every woman should have in your fall wardrobe.

These 5 fall wardrobe essentials will mix and match with just about everything in your current closet and are the foundation of a versatile, wearable wardrobe.

1. Great Pair of Jeans.

I prefer a medium to dark wash. High waist skinnies are the most versatile and flattering on every body type. Non-distressed looks the most polished. But you have to decide which style fits your lifestyle and personality best! Straight leg, skinny, boyfriend, boot cut, or distressed….you decide?!

The key to a great pair of denim is that you feel amazing in them! The proper fit is crucial to how they make you feel. You need a pair that fit your current body….not the one you wish you have after you lose those last ten pounds! They need to fit you right now. I promise you will feel your best because you have taken the time to invest in a pair for the body.

2. A White Top.

Whether it is a classic tee, long sleeve, button-up, or blouse…a white top is must-have basic to build a functional wardrobe and effortless outfits. Going into the fall season make sure to have a white tee and white long sleeve tee to layer with cardigans, jackets, sweaters, and scarves. Never underestimate the power of a great basic. A crisp white tee looks effortless and chic paired with your favorite jeans, boots, and your personalized accessories.

Knot your white tee to add a feminine touch & elevate this basic! Accessories can also dress up this casual, yet effortless jeans & a white tee, outfit.

MThe materialis everything when picking out a white tee. Make sure it is cotton or a cotton blend. This will ensure it washes are wears well over time. And that your tee won’t be see through. The same thing goes for a button up white shirt or blouse, opt for natural fabrics like cotton, linen, or silk, as these will feel the best next to your skin and will last several seasons instead of just a few months!

3. A cardigan

The best layering piece going into the cooler months. Complete a simple outfit like a white tee and jeans with a great cardigan. I love that they are can be worn so many different ways, and dressed up or down.

Transition into Fall with a lightweight cardigan paired with shorts and booties.

*A cozy cardigan can easily be dressed up with a great pair of mules or flats. Of lounge around at home with a tee & joggers.

4. A pair of brown boots.

The most versatile shoe in your wardrobe. They are can be dressed up or down. And paired with just about everything in your closet!  I love pairing brown booties with a pair of skinny jeans, a white tee, and cardigan for a simple, yet totally chic everyday outfit for fall.

5. A statement jacket…(i.e. military, denim, moto, blazer)

A military jacket is a great layer for fall. The olive color goes well with literally everything. Pair it with a tee and jeans, leggings, or joggers.  A suede or leather moto jacket is also a great investment piece. It automatically elevates any outfit, whether you’re wearing jeans and a t-shirt, or a dress. This style jacket will give you so many outfit possibilities for your year-round wardrobe!

There are so many great jacket options that you can add to your fall wardrobe. All of these options are classic, never go out of style, and can be worn dozens of different ways!
