These classic fall wardrobe staples will keep you from wondering what to wear on all those exciting autumn excursions. You know: chasing your kids around pumpkin patches or through apple orchards - the usual. Plus, they’ll be just as comfortable for staying in.
Pumpkin spice season is among us, and while we do think it’s gone a bit too far in some ways (pumpkin spice SPAM, anyone?), we can’t deny our love for crunchy leaves, delicious soups, or the always-satisfying apple cider donut.
Nor we can deny the joy that comes during a season where jewel-tones are always in, long-sleeves are our best friends, and everything is as soft and cozy as our favorite pajama pants.
If you’re in the market for some new fall wardrobe staples that won’t drop out of style in the coming years, look no further than our top six:
1. Solid vest
The best part about classic fall staples is that they pull together what you already have in your closet to create a whole new look. A great, solid-colored vest can make any patterned or solid long-sleeve tee fall-ready, especially if you want to be kept warm, but not too warm. Our favorite colors this season are olive, available in standard sizes, and maroon, available in plus sizing.
2. Quality flannel
Forget the flimsy finds in the women’s section of most department stores (we still love you, Target). The only thing that truly works for the fall season is a thick, quality flannel; and we’ve got you covered with pieces that won’t break the bank. We love sizing-up for an oversized, extra-comfy fit.
3. Thick cardigan
A solid, thick cardigan is perfect for dressing up and dressing warm - all at once. We love the color and texture of this one, which is the perfect neutral for fall. Plus, it has POCKETS! Also comes in rust.
4. Graphic tee
Graphic tees are a fun way to incorporate a little bit of what’s trendy into your classic fall wardrobe. They’re affordable and you can dress them up or down to suit any occasion. We’re loving the multicolor letters on this Pumpkin Spice tee, which also comes saying Thankful.
5. Cozy sweatshirt
Nothing says “bonfire season” like a slightly-slouchy, comfy-all-over sweatshirt you can pair with leggings, jeans, and everything in between. If you’re looking for that slightly oversized, sitting-on-my-couch-drinking-coffee fit, this "Find Your Happy Place" hoodie is the right piece for you. If you prefer crew necks, check out this one.
6. Patterned scarf
The perfect accessory to round out your fall outfit is the patterned scarf. Whether you’re rocking a vest, flannel or cardigan, a patterned scarf can add warmth - in color and feeling - to your outfit. You can’t go wrong with plaid: the classic pattern fall will never forget.
Order that pumpkin spice latte. Throw those bright red leaves in the air. And don’t let anyone make you feel bad for enjoying the simplicities of fall in your super cute fall wardrobe staples.
