I will always have room for blazers in my closet since I personally think they tie together an outfit. They can easily transition a more casual appearing look to a more formal one. This piped black and white blazer is one that will get much wear especially with the classic colors. You can easily create an off-duty look by pairing with a camisole, distressed jeans, and a pair of nude sandals or booties.

8 Fall closet essentials under $80!

style trend comment

8 closet staples under $80 | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

With the official start of Fall starting tomorrow, it’s a good time to start looking at your closet to see what items you already have and what gaps there may be. I’ve rounded up what I consider closet essentials for you. A chunky sweater dress is always great for the cooler weather and can be transitioned to winter by adding leggings or OTK boots. A cardigan is a must in my closet and the longer length is great for both formal and casual looks. Add a little bit of a statement to your footwear with a leopard print bootie – treat it like a neutral and the pairing possibilities are endless. A long sleeve tee is always great for layering and is perfect for extending the life of your sweaters. There is a tendency to gravitate towards darker colors in the fall but a neutral tote can be used all year round. Olive green is a must have color and this vest is the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe. These mules are the best way to hold on to the summer weather and also embrace the new season. A light jacket is necessary and what better way to make a fashion statement than this classic moto design?


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Burgundy sweater dress {only $19 and 2 colors available}

2. Beige longline cardigan {3 colors}

3. Leopard print bootie {under $50}

4. Grey layering long sleeve tshirt {3 colors}

5. Tan work tote

6. Olive green utility vest {2 colors}

7. Bow mule slip ons {2 colors}

8. Black moto jacket {3 colors}

Style: plaid / houndstooth blazers for Fall

style trend comment

Style: plaid / houndstooth blazers (borrowed from the boys) | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Adding a light layer will be needed especially with the weather cooling down in the coming months. If you’re looking for a chic addition to your closet, look no further than this “borrowed from the boys” look. Menswear-inspired plaid or houndstooth blazers are this season’s in look. A blazer will always help pull together an ensemble and with so many cuts (boxy, fitted, etc) you can instantly change your outfit’s feel and look.


SHOP THE LOOK:

ONE {under $90}

TWO {30% off}

THREE {20% off for students using code STUDENT BEANS}

FOUR {only $34}

FIVE {40% off}

Stripes hold a special place in my closet, and it’s hard for me to find one that I dislike. So, when I saw this thinly striped funnelneck shirt, I knew it was coming home with me. The perfectly spaced and size of stripes are perfect to wear to just about any occasion without drawing too much (unwanted) attention. And, the neckline is unique with the buttons and funnel opening. It could also be easily converted to a cold shoulder look by unfastening the buttons. Perfect for a off duty look!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Black and white funnelneck shirt – J.Crew (available in 4 colors/patterns here or here) (similar here {under $25}& here)

Black skinny jeans – J.Crew (ask to price match to here) (similar here {FRAME denim under $100} & here {only $39})

Grey lace heels – Banana Republic (similar here & here)

Red flap purse – Express (similar here {6 colors} & here {50% off})
