7 Essential Fall Basics And Where To Buy Them shutterstock

These are the essential fall basics to help take your wardrobe to the next level.

Fall is the most fun season to dress for. From layering to sweaters and scarves, there are just so many things to have fun with. But as the weather cools down, you don't necessarily want to have to buy a whole new wardrobe.

That's why we've picked out our favorite fall essential items that you can throw on easily and look amazing.

1. A Black Turtleneck

A black turtleneck is a wardrobe staple every woman should have. It’s just so classy! You can buy a thinner one for layering or a sweater version to wear on its own with jeans or a skirt.

Riding boots are a must-have for fall. Whether you wear them over skinny jeans or with a dress or skirt, these will become your new go-to.

You may even want to think about investing in one brown and one black pair. The black is dressier but can be too dull if you're wearing warmer colors. Brown is warm and better for daytime wear.

Chelsea boots are the more casual sister to your riding boots. They're super in this season. Pair them with dark jeans or tights for an edgier look.

4. Burnt Orange or Mustard

Embrace the colors of fall by literally wearing them! Any of the warm tones between burnt orange and mustard are flattering on almost everyone, plus you get to feel festive.

It's easy to let your fall wardrobe get bogged down with dark and cool colors, so bring the warmth back with a fun pop of color.

5. Fleece-Lined Tights

Fleece-lined tights are a must-have for cold climates and layering with dresses and skirts. Think about getting tights that match the color of your boots. This will elongate your legs and minimize the number of colors and textures so your outfit looks cohesive.

6. A Colorful Coat

Every woman should have a neutral coat, but I’m also a believer in a beautiful statement coat in a color that flatters you (and your wardrobe!). Although we usually associate pastels with spring and summer, a beautiful pink or blue coat can lighten up your heavy winter wardrobe and open the door to pretty white accessories!

You can also lean toward earth and jewel tones, with a bright red coat or a rich berry that goes with everything.

6. Gold Hoops

Gold hoops are a must-have fall accessory. They brighten up a darker wardrobe and keep your skin looking glowy even when it's chilly. Plus, they're peak '90s fashion, and we know the '90s are totally in right now.
