10 Fall Wardrobe Staples Everyone Needs

One of the first things that comes to mind when we think about why we’re excited for fall? The clothes, of course! Give us a cozy sweater and cap and we’re happy campers – can we get a “Hear! Hear!”? We polled our editors on what their must have/can’t live without/live in items are this season and came up with these fall wardrobe staples. If you’re gonna put your shopping budget somewhere, these are the essentials…

No fall closet is complete without a wear-everywhere pair of booties! Kick last year’s over-worn pair to the curb in favor of one of these fresh fall styles!

2. Fun Flats

Bows, studs, and leopard, oh my! This season’s trendy flats are sooo cute. These babies are statement making. Slip ’em on with the aforementioned sweater + jeans combo and you’re good to go!

3. Moto Jacket

It’s the worst when an extra layer is necessary for warmth, but cramps your style… not so with this fall staple! Be it suede or leather, a moto jacket instantly upgrades any outfit and adds an extra “cool” factor.

Be it the adorable news cap or the tried & true felt fedora, a neutral hat is the perfect topper to any fall outfit. Plus, these puppies are everywhere, so you can snag one super affordably. And when you can pair it with anything, the cost per wear is practically cents.

5. Oversized Sweater

Is this our favorite of all fall staples? We think so. Every year, about this time, it takes all our stamina to withhold from purchasing 10 new slouchy sweaters. Can you blame us? Cozy and cute and literally all you need (plus jeans) for an easy and fashionable outfit.

6. Faux Leather Leggings

Anyone else breathe a sigh of relief that it’s legging season again? Your excuse for the coziest of pant options is back! If you didn’t upgrade to a pair of faux leather leggings last year, now’s the time. This style is still on-trend and the easiest way to feel comfy and chic at the same time.

6. Cozy Fleece

Speaking of comfy … when you want that upgraded athleisure look, pair your leather legs with a cozy fleece and hit the town! Or grocery store, or brunch place – wherever you’re headed this look is fool-proof as long as it’s chilly enough.

7. Sneakers

You don’t have to put away your sandals come fall, but closed toed shoes are the preferred option to keep your footsies warm and weather protected. Thankfully, sneakers are not only optimal for the season, but our go-to choice for everyday wear.

8. Trendy Outerwear

When the weather’s chilly, keep things simple underneath and let your coat do the talking. Faux fur and corduroy fabrics are some of our seasonal favorites for their fun texture, but plaid blazers are also having a big moment, which we love.

9. Corduroy Skirt

Did we mention that we love corduroy? Fall’s favorite fabric goes great on a skirt. And if you want to get away with a mini skirt in chilly weather, it’s the way to go.
