As the days grow shorter and the air chills, my wardrobe changes drastically. While I would prefer to wear sleeveless tops and sandals year-round, goose bumps and frozen toes force me to stow away the shorts and extricate the sweaters. Below are the ten items most used items in my fall ensembles.
Ten Fall Wardrobe Staples
1. Long-sleeved oxfords
Although oxfords were traditionally worn by only men, they have become a staple in most women’s wardrobes. I find them very versatile–they can be worn with jeans, dress pants, skirts, and even dresses. You can roll up the sleeves or leave them down.
Keep those legs warm and dry!
3. Knee-length skirts
If its warm, knee-length skirts can be warn with simple flats. When the weather grows colder, add tights and boots to the ensemble.
Nothing shouts “FALL” louder than jeans and sweaters.
Admit it. There are days when you just feel like wearing a hoodie and leaving your hair in a ponytail. Hoodies are also great to carry with you to a bonfire–warm evenings quickly chill when the sun sets!

7. Dress pants
Invest in a classic pair of dress pants for looking professional when it’s cold out. I snagged these at a consignment shop for $3.
8. Ballet flats
Just like the oxford, flats can be worn with jeans, skirts, dresses, and dress pants.
9. Long-sleeved dresses
Pair with tights and boots for chilly Sunday mornings.
10. Boat shoes
Boat shoes pair well with jeans and hoodies when you are heading out to a bonfire.
