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}

2. Pink linen blend cardigan {comes in 5 colors; one of closet favorites – I own them in 5 colors!}

3. Black cape cardigan {clearance – only $6!}

4. Marbled brown cardigan {one of my absolute favorite purchases from the Nordstrom anniversary sale – super soft – I could live in this all day!}

5. Tan ribbed cashmere cardigan

6. Burgundy red cocoon sweater {comes in 6 colors}

7. Beige textured cardigan {comes in 3 colors}

8. Ribbed side slit cardigan {comes in 2 colors}

The different ways to style a striped dress are endless. This particular dress won me over during my recent try on session. The stripe combination, thicker fabric, perfect length, and price point made it a no-brainer. Opting for a slightly dressier look, I paired it with this sleeveless vest and contrasting heels. I can easily plan this dress for other occasions – pairing with a chambray top or worn as a tunic with some leggings. How would you style this dress?


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy sleeveless coat / vest – Equipment {orig $588 and on sale for almost 90% off!} (similar here & here {shorter length})

Striped dress – Old Navy {under $20} (similar here & here)

Pink heels – Marc Fisher (similar here {this season’s} & here {flats})

Snapshots: dressing room outfits // Style Me Wednesday

link-up, outfits comment

Front tie sweater | colorblock fit and flare dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Grey tie hem sweater

Colorblock dress – Neiman Marcus (old) (similar)

Loving this sweater for the fall! It comes in 3 colors and is under $50 right now!

Striped tie front sleeveless top | mint green pants  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Bow neck tie sleeveless top

Mint green ankle pants

Loving the light color of these pants and contrasted with bold stripes of the top. Change the look of the outfit by tying the shirt front into a bow or have it hang down as is.

Blazer | striped t-shirt dress | loafer slides  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Cutaway navy blazer – Veronica Beard {budget friendly}

Striped dress

Mule slides

I’ve been looking for a striped shirt dress and this one fits the criteria and budget (under $15!)

Striped wrap dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Dual striped wrap dress

The contrast of the different stripe sizes makes this dress unique. To make the dress more work-friendly, I’d probably add a snap button or layer a lace camisole underneath (or this bra that wouldn’t add more layers), or a bandeau bra.

Floral dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Floral fit & flare dress

Florals get me every time, and this one did just that. The soft wisps and brush stroke pattern won me over.

Pink striped top | nautical shorts |  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Pink striped flutter sleeve top – Banana Republic (similar)

Nautical-inspired navy shorts

Tory Burch ballet flats

Nautical shorts for the win! I happened to be wearing a pink top while trying these shorts and I love the color combination. For a more preppy look, pair with a white button down shirt.

Green utility jacket | white eyelet peplum | cork ballet flats  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Green field / utility jacket

White eyelet peplum – GAP (similar)

Black jeans {budget friendly}

Cork bow-tie ballet flats – Kate Spade {budget friendly}

This field jacket came home with me. Things that won me over: popped collar, drawstring waist, and lots of pockets!

Flamingo sweatshirt | white shorts | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Flamingo sweatshirt {super soft!}

White shorts

This sweatshirt is sooooo soft and I can’t believe it’s only $15!

White tie front blouse | striped skirts | scallop ballet  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Waist tie front button down {budget friendly}

Striped sweater skirt {on clearance here; budget friendly}

Scallop ballet flats {budget friendly}

I can definitely appreciate a tie-front top to accentuate the waist. This top would be very versatile to pair with just about anything – a skirt, pants, jeans!
