Classic Fall Pieces to Stock Up On

We have some time left in summer (yay!). But it's never too early... in my opinion... to start thinking about fall clothes. I love summer dresses and sandals as much as the next girl, but I really love fall clothes. Those days when you can layer a tiny bit without melting. Or walk around outside with a light jacket without freezing. Those crisp fall days are what I live for. (I also find that fall is definitely the shortest of seasons, so having those sweet days– however few they are– are pure heaven.)

I think building out your fall wardrobe is all about relying on the basic staples and then mixing in some of your trendier pieces into the mix. But, at the same time, you could totally create all of your outfits from just the basics. Isn't that the best? Definitely makes getting ready in the morning a piece of cake!

Here are some of the basic pieces for fall:







What classic pieces will you be wearing this fall?

  4. I love all these pieces! Unfortunately, almost every one of my favourites is from J Crew, which we don't have in the UK yet, so annoying! I'll just have to save up for a trip to America to stock up, I guess...

    1. I honestly use J. Crew for two reasons.... 1) they don't have models in the clothing shots so they look better on these collages! and 2) I tend to shop there.

      BUT, I think that you can really use the pieces as inspiration for your shopping list!

    2. J.Crew is opening their London flagship on Regent Street this fall!

  6. Fall is my favorite season! The easiest to dress for in my opinion, just throw on jeans a sweater and a quilted jacket and your done! These are all great picks! I have that TB bag and love it!

  8. I LOVE FALL...and not just because it's the season of my birthday. I also love how I keep myself in check and have most of these items. I really need to get the quilted vest, though! Everyone in Brooklyn seems to be wearing a Patagonia one, hmm...

  12. I love that J. Crew is your go-to store as well. I try to branch out but I just love everything there too much. The camel wool blazer is on my list. I have it in grey and have loved it. I also want that scallop wool skirt in red. Bring on fall!

  13. Boots, dresses, leggings and long cardigans are my go-tos for fall. The quilted vest you shared is perfect - such a great color for fall and winter. Really looking forward to cooler temperatures to bring out all these items!

  14. I think for Fall, a smoother (less "fuzzy") all-season wool blazer is better. Maybe in brown or black or taupe.

  18. This is such a great post, even though I don't want summer to end! I love the cross body bag. Small bags with chains are going to be big this year, and you can never go wrong with Tory Burch.
