We’re welcoming back Audrey today (yay!). She’s already wowed us with How to Put Together a Re-mixable Wardrobe and How to Style a White Tee. Today she’s sharing her must-haves for cooler weather and, I must say, I’m loving her picks!
With November in full swing, the weather is finally cooling down (sometimes) here in San Diego. It’s about time! Though many of you have had fall weather going strong for a while already, I believe there’s still time to talk fall clothing, and I believe having a solid foundation of good fall pieces will serve you up well to be able to build a great winter wardrobe.
I’m typically against “must have” lists because I think your wardrobe essentials really depend on your lifestyle and taste. So, while I wouldn’t want to suggest that every woman needs certain pieces, I would like to share my personal favorite fall items that I wear to death each fall. They are my closet work-horses in the fall, and I’ve found them to be great pieces for looking cozy and cute while still being able to run errands all day long. See My Five Fall Go-To Outfits to get some ideas for how to utilize these pieces this fall.
Here are my personal favorite items:
I have a couple of thicker sweater cardigans that I cannot stop wearing. I wear them over plaid shirts, or with my denim button up, striped shirts, and dresses. Such a cozy layering piece!
I’ve worked my short-sleeved striped tee to death, and for this fall I stocked up on a few long-sleeved versions for cooler weather. There are so many ways to accessorize a plain striped tee even just with necklaces and scarves. Or, you can layer them under cardigans, blazers, and vests.
I used to think these were pointless, but it was because I only ever wore regular old blue jeans and denim button-ups don’t always go well with blue jeans. Once I started to wear colored bottoms and skirts, I couldn’t get enough of my denim button up. It works fabulously paired with any colored bottom or tied over a skirt!
This should be an obvious one for fall. Sweaters are great to wear by themselves or to layer over button-up shirts like chambray or plaid. However, I’ve been against sweaters because I always thought they were boring. Then I realized that they don’t have to be plain, even if they are just a solid color. Try a sweater with some great texture or an interesting color to liven things up!
