You know those days when it feels like fall has arrived but by the time noon has rolled around its back to warm weather and blaring sun? So what is a girl to wear so she can still look chic without looking like a sweaty mess?! With the Shopbop Sale currently underway I took this opportunity to build the perfect outfit for cooler mornings and warmer afternoons. All of the items used are TRUE closet staples and all are very versatile pieces.
How-To Build The Perfect Fall Outfit
Start With Great Denim
Start by building the base layer of your outfit with great denim. Girlfriend Denim is a slightly more tailored version of the boyfriend jean. Still comfortable due to the relaxed fit it just has an overall cleaner look as it more of a tapered leg. This particular pair of Girlfriend Denim has been sitting in my shopping cart just begging to be purchased. Recently I have been buying less expensive jeans but have noticed that after a few washes they don’t hold up as well as my more expensive styles. So with the Shopbop Sale discount I decided to give this particular pricier pair a try.
Citizens of Humanity has been one of my favorite denim brands as their fit always seems to work well with my more athletic shape. Think muscular thighs, booty, and smaller waist – sounds like this description should be in a Beyonce song – right? It always seems to be a challenge to find jeans that fit both my thighs and my waist. This pair however, fits perfectly. They also are super comfortable and can be dressed up with strappy heels as shown above. Or for a more daytime appropriate look they can also can be rolled twice and paired with Golden Goose Sneakers for a more casual feel.
Add On A Tee That Can Be Worn Alone Or Underneath A Sweater
Next up … the base layer top. Striped tees are always a classic and in my eyes you can never have too many. I love the update on this striped style by Club Monaco with a twisted hem. The fabric is lightweight enough where it can be worn under a sweater but also substantial enough to be worn on its own. If you aren’t a fan of stripes, don’t worry because it also comes in a heathered grey.
You are going to be seeing this tunic sweater (almost sold out on Shopbop but available here!) EVERYWHERE this fall and here is why. It comes in multiple colors and has a slouchy fit. The longer length means it can be worn with jeans or with leggings – hooray! Finally it isn’t made out of wool!!! Not only am I allergic to wool but typically that fabric can feel extra itchy in the warmer weather and can also induce sweating. No thank you! As a side note, I am not typically a fan of Free People as they always feel too slouchy for me but this season they hit their sweater and knit selection out of the park.
Additional Sweaters Perfect For Fall Layering
So there you have it friends, a classic fall look that can take you from morning to night and all your stops in between. As I’m sure you know with any outfit accessories will take it to the next level. So use the Shopbop Sale as an opportunity to pick up those finishing touches. For shoes, sock booties are trending in a big way and I’m loving this inexpensive pair that will look perfect with cropped jeans.
I have unabashedly transitioned over to inexpensive sunglasses and have become a huge fan of Quay Australia. They offer every style, shape and size and look designer for a fraction of the price. Finally, make your look complete with fall’s signature berry lip. Take a look at Bobbi Brown’s fall collection called crushed. I went in yesterday to test out a bunch of colors and they have so many great options that fit a wide range of skin tones. Hope you have an incredible fall day and don’t forget to take advantage of the Shopbop Sale!
