Build Your Fall Wardrobe

(Click picture for details)

I don't know about you, but sometimes when I am shopping, I find myself buying a lot of one particular item. In my case, it is shirts. The ratio of shirts to bottoms in my closet is about 20/1. I am slowly trying to build a more balanced wardrobe so that I can easily mix pieces and create brand new looks each day. I have compiled a few basic items in each category if you are looking to do the same thing. These pieces can all work together and you will for sure find that you won't have to wear the same thing twice.

  • A white blouse is the key to any wardrobe. It can be worn so many ways and in every season of the year.
  • You can never have too many white blouses. Picking one with a fun collar is a simple way to add interest to your outfit.
  • Animal prints seem to be in style just about every single year. Having a blouse in a fun animal print can be an easy way to stay chic at the office and can transition to after-work drinks with friends.
  • A chambray shirt is a classic piece that can be dressed up or down.
  • A striped shirt is also a key basic. Stripes never go out of style and can be worn all year long.
  • A sweater is a no-brainer for fall. Pick a light-weight fabric so you won't burn up before the really cold weather hits.

  • Full skirts look cute with bare legs or with tights in colder weather.
  • A pencil skirt is a must for any woman's wardrobe.
  • Pick a skirt in a fun print. I love to have at least one fun print hanging in my closet!

I am definitely a jeans girl, but lately I have been trying to add pants and skirts to my wardrobe. Jeans are a staple, but try adding a basic black pair of pants and a bright color pair as well. Pick a wild (or feminine) print pant to your wardrobe too. Not everything needs to be a solid color!

  • Blazers are a great way to make a look appear more polished. Black is the first color I would suggest buying if you are looking for a blazer. Of course, adding a fun color (really any color will do) later on will only stretch your wardrobe even more.
  • A denim jacket is a classic piece that will be in style forever. It's casual and easy to wear.
  • A boucle jacket can be worn dressed up with a pencil skirt or can be dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans.
  • A leather motorcycle jacket brings a bit of edge to any look.
  • An army jacket would look great over a floral dress and ankle boots or would work well with jeans.

Of course, no outfit is complete without a pair of shoes. I might have picked more in this category than in the others but a girl can never have too many shoes! 

Check back next week to see how these pieces can work together. Have a great day!
