Yesterday, Julianna and I went to the mall to do a little back to school shopping. We have both been talking about how we really want to purge a bunch of items from our closet and just stock up on the basics. Distressed jeans are currently on the top of my fall bucket list, however I have had such a tough time finding the perfect pair. The boyfriend style is extremely unflattering on me and I don't want them to be super ripped. Anyways, above are a few basics that I think every girl should have in her closet for this time of the year.
+ J. Crew Field Jacket
This is the perfect layering piece for early fall and the transition into cooler days. I love the olive green color and it really goes with everything.
+V Neck Tee
Personally, I prefer the V neck to a crew neck tee, but whatever you like the best works. They are usually pretty inexpensive and come in a wide variety of colors. The short sleeves are great to pair with jeans to transition and can be layered with a jacket for chilly fall mornings.
Scarves are one of my favorite transitional accessories. Play with patterns and colors to create a fun fall look!
Striped dresses are probably one of my favorite things for fall. There are so many different variations of colors and sizes of stripes. Throw on a pair of flats, or boots as you move into the later fall months and you have the perfect outfit for school, shopping, or a dinner out!
As I mentioned before, these are on the top of wish list for this fall. I like the edgier look that the rips provide but they are still a great basic.
Because early fall is still pretty warm out, a skirt is a great transition piece. I love the orange as it is so colorful but also would surprisingly match a variety of tops.
I am addicted to stripes and probably have one of these tops in every color combination. They are so simple but a little bit more interesting than a plain colored top. J. Crew and Old Navy have lots of great colors right now!
Last fall I splurged on a pair of black and gold Tory Burch Reva flats and they were one of my best purchases ever. I am obsessed with the nude tie up flats above, they are a little bit more trendy but are so unique!
Personally, I don't like to wear riding boots until late October because it is still pretty warm out. I purchased a pair of converse this summer right before I left for Europe and know that I will be wearing them a lot this fall. They will look great with a pair of skinny jeans or with a dress for a more casual look!
What are your favorite items to wear during the transition months?
