Ahead, discover the trendy basics these women are taking a strong liking to right now. In this context, "trendy" doesn't have to mean hard to wear or over-the-top.

There's a new T-shirt trend in town, and it's officially become the uniform of everyone in fashion. Meet the shoulder-pad T-shirt. Ever since The Frankie Shop first debuted their Eva tee earlier this year, the shape has really taken hold and earned itself a staple spot in our fall wardrobes.

Tailoring continues to have a big influence on basics like blazers and trousers, but this season, we're seeing a lot more relaxed silhouettes like long hemlines and languid shapes that feel "untailored." The one-piece to invest in? A pair of neutral-toned trousers with a wide-leg fit.

Knit Dresses

Among all the dress trends on deck for fall 2020, knitted dresses have got to be our favorites yet. They're timeless, versatile, and so comfortable. This season, it's all about those details like an asymmetric neckline or belted waist that update them from the plain sweater dresses of years past.

Stirrup Leggings

Last, but certainly not least, is a fresh legging trend you're about to see much more of. We've started to spot stirrup leggings on the stylish over-50 set and their cool looks are signaling the rise of this updated basic for fall. We love them styled with a kitten heel and boxy blazer like Renia did here.
