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}

I picked up this sleeveless turtleneck sweater during the beginning of the fall season and knew that I would be able to wear it for at least the coming six months. I have worn it as is while we had our late summer weather here in San Francisco. But, now that the temperatures have dropped and layering is a must, I have been using a base layer underneath it. Styling this navy blue number has been quite easy. I paired it with my favorite stripe top, jeans and booties for a casual daytime look. But, I have also worn this turtleneck to work – switch out the stripe top for a white button down and jeans for slacks. Easy, and I get three completely different looks out of it!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy sleeveless turtleneck sweater – GAP (similar style here & here)

Stripe top – J.Crew (similar style here & here)

Dark wash skinny jeans – Paige Denim (similar style here & here)

Grey booties – Sam Edelman (similar style here {under $75} & here)

When looking to invest in a coat, I always ask myself a few questions: (1) how often will I get wear out of this coat (2) does it look similar to something I already own (3) are there multiple ways to style it. This particular coat passed all my questions and here, it now lives in my closet! (PSA: it’s currently on sale (grey & camel here // grey, camel & black here // black & burgundy here)). Living in San Francisco, the temperature stays pretty consistent and doesn’t usually drop below the 50s during the fall and winter seasons, so this coat provides the perfect amount of warmth. The best part is the reversibility of the coat – you can wear it with the charcoal grey or the heather grey. I love the option of wearing with the waterfall front effect (as styled) or being able to button up the fronts to create a more traditional wrap coat look. And, with the grey colors, this coat will pair well with practically any color outfit so I’ll be getting a lot of use out of it.
