I don’t know about you, but I am so guilty of impulse buying clothes, especially during the fall. Sometimes it’s hard to resist the trends, even when you know they can only be worn for a short time before it gets cold (front button skirt I’m looking at you!). That being said, you want a closet full of clothes that will carry you from season to season, not just pieces that are ideal for a few weeks at a time. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that you are stocked with the essentials. Four pieces that I can’t go without are a vest, a gingham or plaid button up shirt, a floppy hat, and some ankle booties. Not only can you mix and match these items in a countless number of ways during the fall and winter, but they can also be worn year after year without going out of style.
TIP: To get the most out of your closet, try to purchasing as many of these pieces as you can in a neutral color so that they go with everything. You’ll never have that, “I have nothing to wear!” moment again. What are your fall essentials?
Side note: I’m totally loving the vampy lips for fall. Revlon “Black Cherry” was the perfect color to match this burgundy hat! This lipstick is normally glossy so I dusted some translucent powder over it to create the matte effect that I love.
