I’m a firm believer that a good fall wardrobe needs a solid foundation. These timeless pieces become the building blocks for the rest of your outfits season after season. Having go-to staples that defy fads and trends is the key to having a truly versatile wardrobe.
Here are my top 5 fall essentials that are worthy of investing in:
You can’t go wrong with a classic belted trench coat and a tailored peacoat. They’re both timeless and instantly pull together your entire look.

BLACK ANKLE BOOTS:
The equivalent to a little black dress in the footwear department, black ankle boots are a must-have for every woman.

Scarves are a great way to add color, pattern and/or texture to any outfit. I like to stock up in them to change up outfits throughout the season.

DARK WASH JEANS:
Jeans are an obvious staple all year round, but when done in a clean dark wash, it gives any outfit a more polished, pulled-together appearance. Invest in great-fitting dark wash jeans in a variety of cuts like bootcut, skinny and flare.
