My Favorite Fall Wardrobe Staples

Well, girls! September is in full swing, and next week we officially welcome Autumn. I know not all of you are experiencing fall temperatures just yet, but it’s on its way. I promise!

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite fall wardrobe staples from Lord + Taylor, and now’s the time to stock up on fall essentials because they’re running their Biggest Sale of the Season — a buy more, save more event where you can get up to an extra 40% off your order until 9/24/19.

When it comes to fall wardrobe staples, I’m all about cozy sweaters and great fitting jeans.

This olive green dolman-sleeve sweater has a really pretty texture to the knit, and it’s lightweight so perfect for wearing now and later.

I paired it with these 7 For All Mankind high-rise cropped jeans in a nice mid-indigo wash. They have only the slightest distressing, so they look polished but casual.

We’ve been talking a lot about the evolving denim silhouettes lately, and these are one of the best cropped straight styles I’ve tried yet. They’re slim enough to be flattering but still have that straight-leg silhouette that’s trending.

These jeans run true to size; I’m wearing the 29, for reference.

Speaking of fall wardrobe staples — I think a great pair of mules or loafers should be in every woman’s closet — and bonus points for animal print!

These mules have a soft, padded footbed. They’re easy to walk in, but they’re a little small on me. I sized down to a 7.5, as I usually do in mules, but I wish I’d ordered my regular size 8. I don’t recommend sizing down in these.

And a classic leather tote is a must. This bag has a worn-in look and feel, and I love the covered magnetic closure and outside slip pocket for stashing my phone.

It also has internal pockets, and the straps have a comfortable 10″ drop for easy carrying.

I completed the look with a reversible pendant necklace from Lucky Brand. I love their jewelry — it’s on trend and always has nice details and a bit of a rocker vibe.

This outfit is pretty much my fall uniform — you can’t go wrong with a stylish sweater, great-fitting jeans, animal print loafers, and a leather carryall.

Since Lord + Taylor is having a buy more, save more sale, I also picked up this cozy v-neck sweater in the dusty green color they call Abyss.

I love the wide v-neck and the details in the knit, and it’s super soft and cozy.

This sweater I paired with light wash Hudson Jeans mid-rise cropped jeans, and I added taupe booties.

These jeans are a classic skinny fit with a 11.5″ leg opening and a 27″ inseam. This puts them in between ankle-length and cropped jeans, depending on your height.

I also like the slightly wider leg opening — it’s more in line with the straighter looks that are trending, but you still get the ease of skinny jeans. These jeans run also true to size, and I’m in the 29.

This time I went with an ankle boot — my other key fall wardrobe staple.

The lower shaft on these leather booties makes them easy to pair with ankle-length jeans, and the cut-out on the side and 2″ stacked heel keeps them both stylish and walkable.

Once again, I completed the look with a Lucky Brand necklace — this time a silver layered charm necklace that comes with a 2″ extender so you can adjust the length to your liking.

I love this unexpected pastel color palette for fall, and how the taupe booties and silver jewelry complement the cool tones in this outfit. Once again, just an easy look to throw on and go, and you will feel polished and put-together no matter what your day throws at you.
