Welcome to your fall-basics checklist. While we all love to make a thrilling trendy purchase, what would our fall wardrobes really be if we didn’t have the anchor pieces on lock? As we’ve explained before, basics (or the lack thereof) can be the difference between having a solid sartorial foundation and feeling like you have nothing to wear, despite having a closet full of options. It really comes down to those classic staples you can wear over and over again, and I’m about to highlight seven such options that I think will lay the foundation for an A+ fall wardrobe.
The following seven items include the basics that are fresh for the current season and just forward enough to feel exciting, but they’re classics you’ll wear over and over. I can basically guarantee you’ll get your money’s worth out of them, and yes, you can quote me on that. The reason I think they’re so handy is that you can wear them multiple ways, dressed up or down, and look stylish every single time. Whether it’s a great knit dress, this season’s big sweater trend, or a fresh pair of denim, continue on to see (and, of course, shop) the best basics for fall, according to me.
