Fall Closet Essentials

I took a recent inventory of my closet & after evaluating the trends I’m on board for this year, decided on some Fall closet essentials I thought I needed. I placed a big online order of affordable pieces to try, so I figured I’d try them on for you all & share them in case you are looking for some new pieces or ways to update your wardrobe without busting your budget.


I’m rounding up some Fall closet essentials below. Many of these are classics (like plaid), but some are more on trend for this season (like crops). Everything I’m sharing in today’s post are affordable finds from Forever 21. If you have not shopped at F21 lately, hear me when I say that they are crushing it. I have found so many good wardrobe pieces that I love & I am always floored by the prices! They have so many good site wide sales on the reg making them even more affordable. No matter what you are shopping for, they have TONS of options, which I love. I needed some new plaid flannels & when I searched on their site I found pages of great options. A girl needs options, ya know?! I’m including some styled options featuring Fall closet essentials from F21 below including sizing options below.


Plaid, for Fall? Groundbreaking. But, really you can’t go wrong. There are SO many ways to incorporate plaid into your wardrobe from making it a statement piece or a classic flannel tied around your waist.

Flannel (Size S, oversized) // Romper (Size S, runs short on my long torso) // Knit Tank (M, TTS) Pants (M, need a size S)


Jumpsuits are a one hit wonder. I love them because you can so often dress them down with sneakers for day time or dress them up with heels. They look great layered under denim jackets, blazers, moto jackets, or even cardigans!

Trench Jumpsuit (Size S) // Plaid Overall Jumpsuit (Size M) // Knit Flare Jumpsuit (Size M)


Elevated loungewear is a big trend for Fall that I am here for! Whether it’s a cute sweat inspired jumpsuit or a fun graphic sweatshirt, finding lounge style pieces that you can wear out & about is something I am here for.

Hoodie Jumpsuit (Size S) // Yin Yang Sweatshirt (Size M for oversized fit) Jeans (TTS)


You’ve probably heard that skinny jeans are ‘out.’ While I’m a big believer in just wearing what you feel good in, it’s true that the more on trend jeans for this year are the mom style, straight leg, or 90s style jean. I think they are a fun way to freshen up your denim!

Tank (Size M) Paperbag Waist Jeans (Size M, I could go down to a S) // Knit Bodysuit (Size M) Black Jeans (TTS)


While crop tops trending may make you cringe (I feel ya, I’m just 2 months postpartum over here), hear me out. Crops are definitely in style this fall, but they are trending with high waisted bottoms so you aren’t fully on display with your stomach like Britney in the early 2000s. Pairing a jacket over them, especially one like an oversized blazer, is the on trend way to style them that I can get behind.

Cutout Crop (Size M) Jeans (Size M, could do S)//  Cropped Cardi (Size S) // Bell Sleeve Crop (Size S) // Black Jeans (TTS)


It wouldn’t be fall without some good knits in your rotation. Whether it’s a fun dress, a cute cardigan, or a bodysuit a knit is a quintessential fall piece.
