8 Fall basics that work for everyone!

“Age has nothing to do with what you should and shouldn’t wear” states my good friend Bobby Schuessler of Who What Wear. I must say, I’m SO proud to be working with Who What Wear to promote this age-positive message! The fact that age doesn’t matter when it comes to style has been a foundational belief of mine throughout my entire career in fashion. Thank you to Bobby and to WWW for including me in this article. Click here to read it, and this recent article too!

Many of you following along have seen these WWW articles over the last six months, and I thought I’d share a little about the process “behind-the-scenes.” It works something like this: Bobby sends me an email with a title idea, and we discuss it a bit. Then I provide the photos and descriptions about the items I select. When the article is published, the clickable items are chosen by WWW editors. Today’s post is a recap of the article, and the new items I’m highlighting. This way, you get the best of both: their top choices, and mine as well! Let me know what you think, I hope you like them 🙂

#1 Oversized Blazer

Faux leather blazer, here and here | Denim | Bag | Sandals | Tank | Sunglasses

“An oversized blazer works easily over any T-shirt you own. And when the weather cools down, switch to a cashmere tee for a bit more polish — and warmth.” — Wright – Check out these three from Madewell, this Chanel-inspired tweed blazer, and then of course, there’s always the best-seller Veronica Beard.



#2 Shirt Jacket/Utility Jacket

Utility jacket | White denim | Golden Goose sneakers | Zara bag | ATM tee | Dior bracelets | Shell bracelet

“A shirt jacket is an easy piece to add for a seamless transition into fall. I love it with denim or even over a dress, belted. Casual but super stylish.” — Wright – I love this Anthropologie shirt jacket and of course any kind of plaid catches my eye like this one and this one. I adore these fall basics.



#3 Faux Leather Separates

Bardot faux leather jumpsuit | Zara bag | Marc Fisher sandals | Gucci sunnies

“Wear a faux-leather anything—shirt jacket, jumpsuit, or blazer—and it instantly adds a cool vibe to any fall outfit.” — Wright – See more options in this post.




#4 Printed Dress

Topshop dress, similar | AGL booties, similar

“A chic dress and white booties is a favorite fall combo. Sophisticated and easy, and perfect for most occasions.” — Wright – I have my eye on this brand new Veronica Beard dress and this twofer from AllSaints –– a slip dress with a sweater over it — so chic! I love this version and this version too!



#5 Faded and light-wash jeans

Club Monaco blazer | Zara sandals, similar | Mother denim | Frame cami | Sunnies | Poppy Finch necklace | Brinker & Eliza bracelet | Handbag

“Faded denim has been a favorite wash all year. As we head into fall, I’ll be wearing all my faded denim with blazers, printed tops, and cozy sweaters!” — Wright



#6 White shirt

White shirt | Mother denim | Alexandre Birman sandals, similar | Denim jacket | Sunglasses | J.Crew earrings | Clare V. pouch

“A white shirt is a staple no matter the season. Heading into fall, combine with a cardi and your favorite denim for an instant, classic look.” — Wright – I rotate between this Frank & Eileen, and the Madewell one above.



#7 Bootcut jeans

Michael Stars tank | J.Crew sweater (over shoulders) | Mother “Weekender Jeans” | Black sandals | Zara bag | Rag & Bone belt | Gucci sunnies

“I love bootcut jeans because they are super flattering. Who doesn’t want a leg-lengthening style that looks great with most any top?” — Wright – The BEST flare out there in my opinion – the Mother “Weekender” style. Everyone loves this one and the wash options are plentiful! Definitely fall basics and must-have.



#8 Black denim

Theory jacket | Dior shoes | Chloe bag | Sunglasses | Turtleneck | Jeans

“Black denim is foundational for any fall wardrobe. I can’t imagine getting dressed without a good pair. They’re the starting piece of any outfit!” — Wright
