The summer months are quickly fading into fall, but is your wardrobe ready for it? Fall fashion doesn’t have to be a hassle. Grab these basic pieces to get through the season looking fabulous, stress-free.
A chunky blanket scarf can easily transform the basics you already own into chic fall looks. Plus, it will keep you warm as cooler evenings sneak in. Typically, blanket scarves are plaid, and we prefer them in fall tones, like this

Olive-green utility jackets are functional, durable, and adorable. Pair one over any outfit for added style and warmth all in one. This will become your go-to as the seasons change, and it will finally give your favorite denim jacket a break.
A striped tee or bodysuit adds some interest to a stack of basics. A black-and-white crewneck style is the most versatile for pairing with jackets and cardigans.

Speaking of cardigans… Do you have a favorite go-to cardigan yet? This piece lets you put together an outfit for any occasion! Dress up your cozy cardigan by wearing it with a dress and flats, or dress it down with jeans and a tee.
We love loose turtleneck sweaters because they can be worn around the house, at a bonfire, or in the office. For cozy vibes, wear your turtleneck with leggings and boots. For a casual dinner, pair it with jeans and booties. To fancy it up, put on a pair of slacks, layer on a long necklace, and finish off with some heels.
When you’re working with basics, you need a way to add some spice. We love this fall’s snakeskin trend and highly suggest you keep some snakeskin booties, loafers, or a belt on deck.
You can wear chambray shirts with pretty much anything, whether open over a tee or underneath a jacket or cardigan. This versatile piece is a chic and easy way to update any fall look.
Instead of buying an all-new fall wardrobe, try pairing what you already own with these basics. You will be surprised how many fashion-forward outfits you can create.
