Update Your Closet and Add These Fall 2017 Wardrobe Staples

The Fall 2017 wardrobe staples have arrived and we’re seeing a lot of vintage inspired faux fur, comfy oversized sweaters, plaid prints, and knot-tie tops. Los Angeles tends to get a little chilly during the months of November to February, and although the drop in temperature isn’t drastic, it is important you are fashionable and prepared for the cooler months ahead.

Below is a list of the top staple pieces you will need this season. These pieces can be mixed and matched with what you already have in your closet for effortless, and trending outfit combinations. The trends for this fall are emphasized by comfort, minimalism, and attention to details.


Knot-Tie Tops

A knot-tie blouse is a staple this season as it has been revamped by adding design detail through the addition of a knot that creates a tie or a bow.

Volume Sweaters

Volume sweaters are essential for lazy days as they comfy, stylish, and easily paired with other clothing to add versatility.

Free People – Take Over Me Oversized Sweater, $74.99

Turtle Necks

Turtlenecks provide the full coverage on a cold day and come in handy when you just don’t want to accessorize; play it up with fit or snug silhouettes.

Urban Outfitters – BDG Chunky Turtleneck Sweater, $69

Plaid with a Twist

Plaid will forever be a fall staple, but this season a plaid shirt that differentiates itself from the typical oversized plaid flannel will hype up your closet, and give you a whole new look.
