It’s now October, we’re experiencing cooler weather, and Starbucks is serving up the PSL.  Fall is here.

At the beginning of a new season, I usually take the opportunity for a little retail therapy and add a few new items to my arsenal, but before going out and to shop all the new arrivals, take time to assess what you already have.  This is especially needed if you’re an impulse buyer (like me).

The key to a sufficient and successful Fall wardrobe lies in having items that are easy to layer, can be dressed up or down as the need arises, and have versatility in how they pair with other items.  To help me pare-down, I’ve made a list of what I need (and mostly already have) to carry me through the season.  This list is comprised of what I’d consider to be the basics, but remember—basic doesn’t have to be basic.

Let’s begin…

1.    Striped shirt 

2.    Blouse with Feminine details—think embroidery, lace, crochet, etc.

3.    Chambray top

4.    Plaid button down

5.    White button down—find one with a high low hem, ruffles, pleats, or subtle stripes 

6.    A blouse with an interesting neckline—tie or bow, mockneck, or turtleneck…they’re all “in” 

7.    Girlfriend or boyfriend jean

8.    Boot cut or flare jean—the first is classic and the second is trendy

9.    Corduroy pant

10.Fitted dress pant

11.Black skinny jean 

12.Denim skirt—the button front trend is great for fall

13.Pencil skirt

14.Shirt dress

15.Sheath styled dress—my pick is a fit & flare faux green leather dress

16.Tunic dress

17.Chunky sweater or cardigan

18.Basic black, cream, or grey sweater—cropped, classic, or oversized

19.Black blazer

20.Olive green jacket

21.Vest—sleeveless blazer, faux fur, quilted or puffer

22.Loafers

23.Black heels

24.Tall boots—invest in a pair that will last you season after season

25. Booties—feel free to have some fun with these, whether with fringe or a fun color

26.Ballet Flats

27.Sandals—we all know that the weather can be unpredictable, so until it’s frigid cold, my toes are going to see some sun

28.Printed handbag

29.Crossbody purse

30.Chic clutch

31.Neutral tote

32.Belt

33. Scarf—can’t go wrong with plaid

34.Hat

35.Statement necklace

 This is my list, so be sure to put your own spin on it!  If something doesn’t work for you, swap it for something that fits your lifestyle.
