Autumn is still in the air, with winter rapidly approaching. If you continue to build your fall wardrobe or plan to take advantage of the deeply discounted super sales of Thanksgiving week, then here are some ideas. Try this collection of 10 cozy-chic essentials for enviable style all season long.
Here are some iconic wardrobe building blocks that every woman should consider:
1. The Tuxedo Jacket
The must-have blazer gets a refined new twist with subtle tuxedo details.
Wear it with: Your favorite pair of jeans or a sleek leather-like legging (like the faux leather leggings The Fashion Plate received for her birthday! Thanks Mom and Chapel Hill Steinmart!).
2. The slip dress
This sexy little essential looks amazing layered or all on its own.
Wear it with: A chunky knit for day or killer pumps at night.
3. The bow blouse
A fresh take on the button-down, softened with ultra-femme details.
Wear it with: Tailored black pants or an adorable flirty skirt.
4. The color block dress
Your first choice, last minute, always bold, never-lets-you-down throw-on. My all-time fave!
Wear it with: A colorful accessory and a great statement jacket.
5. The body tee
Long sleeved and lovely, you can find this feminine tee in many forms, including with a little extra fun at the back, off-the-shoulder or racerback.
Wear it with: Dark denim and a leather moto on top. (That would be a motorcycle jacket!)
6. The trench coat
No closet is complete without it. So good that some call it “the secret trench.”
Wear it with: Anything and everything-all day, all night, season after season.
7. The long & lean cardi sweater
A go-to knit layer that’s truly flattering for everyone and perfect for layering.
Wear it with: A belt for the office or loose and open after hours.
8. The stiletto of the season
Sleek sophisticated and sky-high, the pointed-toe pump takes any outfit to the next level.
Wear it with: Every single look mentioned in the Ten To Fall For and so much more.
9. The skinny jean
A true foundation piece.
Wear it with: A flirty little blouse and a signature pointed pump for polish or your favorite boots or shooties for a more casual look.
10. The leather luxe
I’ve already been down this path in my last Favorite Fall Fashion article, but it’s worthy of a second mention. Choose a motorcycle jacket, leggings, skirt or sweater with leather embellishment. Faux is fine!
Wear it with: Everything all season long from office (stay somewhat conservative) to date night to late night out with the girls to holiday soirees.
Remember that you don’t have to be a slave to the trends of the season. Pick your favorites and make your own style statement mark! It doesn’t get any better than that!
Have a safe, savory and stylish Thanksgiving week with family and friends!
