With autumn knocking on our doors, most of us are experiencing the same problem we have every single year: how to look classy and put together during the upcoming months while keeping ourselves warm and comfortable. Even though summer is almost gone and we have very little time left to properly stock our closets, we have just the right short, but comprehensive list of the 5 essential pieces that you’ll need this fall to create stylish and elegant outfits every time you go out.
A classic coat
What do Blair Waldorf, Andy Sachs, and Audrey Hepburn’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s have in common? Obviously, their iconic collection of coats! If this autumn you intend to spend a little more money and make an investment in your wardrobe, a classic woolen overcoat is the exact thing you need. Not only is it a must have for the cold autumn days, it is also a wonderful way to dress up any outfit, be it the classic jeans and sweater combination or a more official blouse and pencil skirt look. If you want to be sure that you’re making the right choice, go for a classic, long, black or beige coat made of wool, because it will go with everything and will last you a long time.
A Wool sweater
Even though it is a very simple and casual piece of clothing, a high-quality wool sweater with charming designs can make you look more expensive and put together, especially if it is made of natural materials. A little over two years ago, the world went crazy over Irish sweaters, also known as fisherman knit jumpers. If it is the first time you ever buy such a garment, we would recommend getting a classic white crew neck Irish sweater, as it will look great when combined with the rest of your wardrobe, as well as the things that we’re mentioning in this thread, but if you already have one of these in your wardrobe, you can experiment with different styles, such as getting a turtleneck or a shawl neck Irish sweater in a brighter color.
The right pair of denim jeans
Many people make the mistake of thinking that a posh style doesn’t go hand in hand with wearing such casual clothing like jeans. And although some fashion critics will passionately insist on this, we believe that the right pair of jeans that are both classy and comfortable will make a wonderful addition to your wardrobe, regardless of your age or occupation. When combined with a basic white shirt or with the woolen sweater that we’ll talk about in a minute, it can make an outfit that would be perfect for both a relaxed Friday at work or a late evening family gathering.
For a truly impeccable appearance, details are everything, as even the smallest things can ruin an outfit that looks perfect at the first glance. One of the things that can help you immediately elevate a look, especially during the upcoming cold months is black tights. During these freezing months, there’s nothing that makes an outfit look unrefined other than a woman wearing a mini skirt with bare legs. Make sure to get at least two pairs of basic thick black tights that you can wear both with your short skirts and underneath some jeans or trousers if you need some extra warmth throughout winter.
Speaking of details, there’s nothing that can make your outfits look more expensive than classic jewelry, as it is considered to be the very foundation of any look. If you’re not sure what exactly you should invest in, we recommend the three most known and beloved pieces: diamond stud earrings, a pearl necklace, and a diamond bracelet. These are the timeless pieces that will never go out of style and can even become a generational treasure. You can wear them combined together or by themselves for an even more delicate and sophisticated look.
