Maybe it’s part of getting older, but in the past few fashion cycles, I’ve found myself gravitating toward quality closet staples over flashy new trends. There was a point in my life where I hopped on every new It item and was excited to test out all the buzziest trends, but as of late, I’ve been focused on building a closet full of pieces I can wear for years.
I’ve been making an effort to be a more conscious consumer by investing in items that can be styled in multiple ways and act as the backbones of my wardrobe. This means differentiating between the pieces that are just a flash in the trend pan and the ones that never go out of style.
This season is no different—I’ve streamlined my fall shopping list to only include items I feel will have longevity in my wardrobe and will stay with me for years to come. Think tailored trousers, cozy sweaters, and chic blazers that provide the base for endless outfit combinations. These items may have been trends at some point, but they’ve since graduated to become wardrobe mainstays. Below are the five classic closet staples I plan to shop for fall that I feel 100% confident investing in.
