I’m already stocked up on basics for fall, so it only makes sense that I start shopping for a few key statement pieces to style them with. In my head, I’m actually increasing the cost-per-wear of what’s in my closet, and thus, being financially (and sartorially) smart. That’s girl math. And whether you’re on board with the TikTok viral term or not, that’s how I’m justifying making a few fun purchases to add some balance to the minimalist pieces in my closet. Fall is always my favorite season for fashion, and when you see the market below, you’ll agree. Colorful chunky knits, moto-inspired boots, and metallic accessories will have you looking forward to the months ahead.
I’m in no way shaming sticking to the basics in your wardrobe. In fact, most of my closet consists of simple pieces, and I like to invest in a few “out there” items throughout the year that are still wearable and versatile when paired with my usual wardrobe staples. After all, a studded belt will just make your white t-shirt and jeans outfit look a lot more put together. Plus, those red heels you’ve been nervous to buy? Pair it with an LBD or pair it with black trousers, it’s going to make sense. Keep scrolling for a shopping list of statement items that’ll you’ll reach for plenty when fall comes around.
