fall & winter staples – tops

Hi there ūüôā

My wardrobe is super simple… lots of solids, a few simple prints and mostly pieces I can mix and match. This is sometimes referred to as a capsule wardrobe. Not familiar with this term?¬†PINTEREST is your FRIEND.

This is the first of a three-part series on fall/winter staples for casual days. In this post, we focus on tops. Next will be bottoms, then a final post with everything else (accessories, shoes, scarfs)! All the pieces mentioned below are super accessible. You can go high-end or low-end, based on your personal preferences and/or budget Рthe end result will be EXACTLY the same!

PSA: I don’t spend a lot of money on clothes. Handbags and accessories, now that’s a different story! #pickyourpoison #unlessyouarerich

The key to looking chic is to keep it simple. The fewer colors you wear, the more chic you look! #facts  Find a piece you like and buy in multiple colors!

Long sleeve shirts. I always purchase these from Banana Republic. They come in many colors; but, my staples are white, gray and black. Add in a white long-sleeve shirt with black horizontal stripes to your list as well as corresponding short sleeve plain shirts.

Boyfriend shirts.¬†For, um… layers! (who wears coats anymore??) You only need two: one camouflage and one jean material. For camouflage, check¬†Nordstrom¬†or Express. My jean shirt is from Target – I wanted plain jean shirt, no fading, no embellishments, no buttons… sigh; but, you can find these anywhere (Macy’s). If you want to be a little more fancy, add a red buffalo check shirt – this one is men’s (couldn’t find a women’s version online).

One button black blazer. This is a must have! Wear it on top of the shirts described above or over a graphic t-shirt for an extra snazzy look. J. Crew

 

 

 

 

 

Puffer vest from The North Face. In the absence of a coat this piece really does need to work and will last you a VERY longtime! J. Crew also has some nice ones.

 

 

 

 

That’s it y’all!¬†You won’t find me in much more than these pieces on the weekends.

Stay tuned for my next post – fall/winter staples – bottoms!
