One thing about me: I love a good wardrobe basic. While it may be my job to report on the trends coming down the pipeline—and our F/W 2022 report is already live—and test out a few of my favorites, I have such a soft spot for basics. Being the foundation of my wardrobe, my closet essentials also make up 90% of what I wear 90% on a given day, and for that reason they happen to be some of my favorite pieces to shop for.
At the start of every new season, there are always certain basics I know I’ll be buying and wearing in the coming months. For fall, that list includes non-negotiables like ankle boots, jeans, and sweaters which will become the foundation to countless outfits as the season progresses. To check off those boxes and perhaps tap into a few trends while doing so, I’ve put together a list of my favorite fall basics that I’ve added to my cart and a few I may have already placed an order for.
