Don't get me wrong. I love a good trendy buy as much as the next person. But this fall, I'm focused on anti-trend pieces like the classic and elevated basics that dominated the F/W 23 runways and will unquestionably last well beyond the current season.
From humble hoodies to crisp white shirts and classic black coats, the overall mood for fall and winter is plain basics. But the best part is you don't need to spend your entire paycheck on designer pieces to get the look. Below, I'm listing five classic runway-approved styles fashion people will be wearing this fall that you can easily get your hands on at more affordable prices. Take a look for reliable pieces you won't regret.
Crisp Basic Button-Downs
Classic button-downs have long been a staple among the fashion set, but this year, they're taking the spotlight for fall dressing. White button-downs are a must, as spotted all over the runways from Christian Dior to Bottega Veneta. We also saw button-downs in subtle hues like blue, beige, and striped iterations.
The humble hoodie is rising to fame this fall. We saw plenty of iterations on the F/W runways, but none as easy and wearable as the gray zip-up hoodies layered under overcoats at Miu Miu. It's all about how you style and layer this casual basic for fall.
It's all about power dressing this fall, so choosing the right tailored pieces is crucial. From the needle-sharp shoulders at Saint Laurent to the sculpted skirt suits at Versace, this season's suiting will make anyone feel like the chicest and most powerful person in the boardroom and beyond.
A basic black tailored coat may not set your pulse racing, but the classic topper is set to be the scene stealer in the outerwear game this season. The key is to opt for impeccable tailoring and beautiful fabrics in a longer-line silhouette.
