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