Fall back to basics

Fall collections have officially hit stores and we’re noticing a comeback of popular basic shapes and styles that are easy to mix, match, and layer. Even the patterns this fall are staying sweet and simple, including polka dots and stripes.

The Denim:
Fall= Back-to-School= Denim. Nothing says fall more than denim and it’s featured in almost every store’s fall line. The material transitions perfectly from late summer to fall, and this year your favorite basic denim is in color! But denim is making a return elsewhere in fashion as well; the chambray shirt, the denim jacket, and the denim dress, are all huge trends for fall.

The Button- Up:
These can quickly and easily become your go-to shirts. Many stores are highlighting the “boyfriend” or “favorite” oxford for fall in all different colors. They are perfect for layering and are easy to throw on and still look polished. For going out, try a chiffon, blousy button-up in a fun color or print, and don’t forget a bold statement necklace!

The Crewneck Knit:
Basic knits in simple shapes are major staples in this year’s fall lines. Every store seems to have their own take on the striped crewneck long sleeve tee, which is simple and comfy without being boring. We know you’ve been waiting for the first significant drop in temperature to break out your sweaters. Sweater weather is better weather, right? Well, the basic layering piece is back for fall and this time in dots and stripes. The crewneck sweater can easily be paired with a scarf or layered over an oxford.
