Where would we be without our trusty basics? They’re the backbone of our wardrobes and will always solve every fashion dilemma. Our staples look chic when worn together and are ideal for layering with other statement pieces. From basic tees to tank tops and leggings to cardigans, you probably already have a decent collection of basics in your closet that you wear on daily rotation. With fall just around the corner, today we want to share some super-cool autumn outfit ideas that you can easily assemble with the basics you already own. Scroll below for plenty of sartorial inspiration along with some excellent shopping picks should you need to update your current staples.
Basic: White Tee Style With: Ivory Wide-Leg Pants, Trench Coat, Boots
Take your basic white tee into the fall season by pairing it with similar neutral hues to add instant polish to the staple. White and ivory work surprisingly well together so try styling your tee with off-white wide-leg pants or jeans and finish the look with a tan trench, beige boots, and gold jewelry.`
A white button-down is a year-round staple which we've been styling with everything from shorts to sweats and over our bikinis throughout summer. For fall, try layering the staple over a black turtleneck and under an oversize wool blazer. Keep the look chic by tucking it into slim black jeans.
There's that perfect time in fall when you can wear summer sandals and a warm coat at the same time in perfect harmony (and it looks seriously chic!). Pair the combo with your staple straight-leg jeans and finish with a silky neck scarf for an Insta-worthy outfit.
I'll hazard a guess you've been wearing your tank top on heavy rotation throughout the summer. To transition the basic easily into fall simply swap out your shorts for cool high-waisted pants cinched at the waist with a belt. Finish the look with a lightweight raincoat—perfect for those days when it's not too hot and not too cold.
