Updated Basics For Fabulous Fall Style

You know those items in your closet that you reach for over and over again? A striped turtleneck, go-to black pants, favorite slip-on shoes. This fall, I’m giving my basics a little update by incorporating some of fall’s biggest trends. Today’s look is the perfect example. I’m styling 3 of my updated basics for the season.

What I’m wearing:

Puff-sleeve turtleneck (20% off code) | Faux leather pants (similar, similar)

Studded mules | Hoops (similar, similar)

I always keep a striped turtleneck in my wardrobe. It just makes sense because you can never go wrong with stripes (see here), especially on an essential like a top with a high neck. So, when I saw this striped turtleneck with right-on-trend puff sleeves, I had to have it. That little detail on the sleeves gives the sweater so much flavor.

Sizing? For reference, I’m wearing the top in a size small. It’s stretchy and fits true to size.

I love a high-waisted pair of tapered ankle pants. It’s my most flattering pair of pants. I took a chance and ordered this faux-leather style in that very silhouette, and I’ve worn them so much ever since. The texture is totally appropriate for all kinds of occasions this year. My pants are from H&M, and they sold out quickly because they’re amazing and only $39.99.

What can I say? I love mules. I wanted a pair that was dressy-ish, fashionable, and complements black ensembles. These studded mules are it! You’ve seen me wear them before (here and here).

Those are some of my updated basics for fall. What are you reaching for?
