There are two types of fashion girls: the ones who live for all the adorable outfits they can wear when the temperatures rise, and the ones whose closets truly come alive as the leaves turn golden and the sky goes gray. For the former, dressing in the Fall and having so many layers to take into account can be a real challenge; for the latter, nothing quite beats the thrill of finding the perfect pair of boots, or the joy of transitioning breezy dresses into the new season. But regardless of which camp you fall into, there are a few Fall essentials that no wardrobe would be complete without.
From simple layering pieces that make all the difference to cozy chunky knits, sophisticated outerwear pieces, and boots that will elongate your legs, Fall fashion is about more than just keeping warm. Sure, dressing in the morning isn't quite as straightforward as putting a midi dress on and dashing out the door, but there are so many exciting new combinations to try that you'll never run out of stylish outfit ideas. Ahead, get a closer look at all the basics your Fall closet needs, and shop the ones you're missing for yourself.
