Fall Staples

This is an updated post that I’ve done for the past couple of years. What I love about this post, is that even though this is not the first time I’ve done it, I still 100% stand by the staples. They are truly timeless.

This time around I’m going to try to add a bunch of items at various price points. As always, take these as inspiration. (I used a lot of J. Crew pieces for the collage because they have pure flat-lays of the products. It doesn’t mean that you have to buy everything from J. Crew!)

Hi Carly! Loved the post and the items you shared – would you consider doing a future post where you say which is your single favourite brand/item for each of the categories you listed?

Eg. Favourite waxed cotton being the barbour beadnell?

Carly- do you have a link to the adorable purse in the picture? It’s not in the scrolling list under “crossbody”! Thanks!

This is a great list, Carly! I am happy to own many of the pieces mentioned. I just hope it cools down soon in Dallas so I can start wearing them!

This is a brilliant collection. The wonderful thing about classic dressing is its timless quality. From ages 20’s to 80’s and beyond. Love the updated details.

Carly, I really appreciate the work you put into finding affordable pieces for those of us who are on a smaller budget! Thanks for this!

Thanks so much for this list and including a variety of price points! These are all great pieces and it’s so nice to see affordable options. Could you link to the navy dress in the second row of your picture? I couldn’t find it in the dress section scrolling below but it’s gorgeous.

Love all the pieces but some are on the pricey side. I would love to see a post about best ways to find classic pieces on a discount.

I actually bought my riding boots (Doc Marten ‘Caite’ style in dark brown) because of one of your fall staple posts! I couldn’t be happier with them. They carried me through the fall and into winter last year (and standing up to Alberta’s snowy winters is no small thing).

…I also might own a navy blue puffer vest and beige trenchcoat because of previous fall staples posts too. Shh.

Love this post- such great, classic staples to add to any fall wardrobe! I was wondering- how to you install those product sliders into your blog post? They are fabulous!

Wow! What a great guide! I definitely own a lot of these pieces but I have my eye on a Burberry trench (I have black but would use tan a lot), and the quilted jacket. I have a fatigue jacket, but I’m loving that waxed one you picked as well. Thanks for sharing!

Long time lurker, first time commenter! As a ~young professional~ I love these types of posts because I’m still building my wardrobe and always on the look out for fashion staples!

I always love seeing fall fashions, and I love that there are so many timeless fashions each Fall. Thank you for the inspiration!

Love your picks! And love that so many of the items stand the time aka you know it will be worth the investment, such as the duck boots by LL Bean.

I have a love/hate relationship with Tory Burch riding boots. They are gorgeous and I splurged on a pair a few years ago but they are so tight, stiff (and I am a petite girl), and uncomfortable. It’s a no from me.

Thank you so much for doing this! I can’t even imagine how time consuming it is to find all of these things in so many different price points! It’s such a great guide to have because I’m willing to spend money on investment staples like a good pair of boots or a jacket, but I always look for less expensive shirts and whatnot. This is great! Let’s be real, every post you do is great!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for featuring items in such a wide range of prices and especially for items under $100. I find most bloggers seem to think all their readers are millionaires and can afford all the high end cosmetics (Really? Mascara for $65?) and clothing (Really? everyday jeans for $285?).
