Fall Essentials: Shirts & Sweaters

Today I am sharing the 8 shirts that every closet needs this season. I wanted to focus on the types of clothing I like to layer; button-ups, sweaters, and cardigans, as well as a variety of textures and prints that can be mixed and matched with each other.

1.) Chambray Shirt. This one's pretty much a no brainer, but an essential nonetheless. It can be worn under cardigans and sweaters or open over a graphic or embellished tee. Throw it on over your favorite summer dress and tie at the waist to transition you warm weather favorites into the fall.

2.) Leopard Print Sweater. My love of leopard print meets a new point of obsession with this leopard cardigan from Target. It's perfect for layering over a chambray shirt, plaid shirt, or turtleneck. Since leopard has been declared a neutral, the possibilities are nearly endless!

3.) Graphic or Embellished T-shirt. My pick for this season is this gorgeous gold block/stripe tee, which will transition through the holidays nicely as well. It's perfect for wearing under an open-front cardigan or jazzing up a blazer.

4.) Fair Isle Sweater. I love a good fair isle print, I mean, seriously, who doesn't? But this little sweater in particular has stolen my heart. Whether on its own, or over the chambray, a plaid shirt, or a turtleneck, this black and white sweater would be wonderful!

5.) Turtleneck. They aren't just for your granny or the 90's anymore. This updated striped turtleneck is so soft and cozy, you'll want to live in it til spring! It's been an instant favorite in my closet, perfect with a cardigan, vest, or button-up.

6.) Plaid Shirt. I "need" another plaid shirt like I need a hole in the head, but how can I resist this vibrant red buffalo check? It's the perfect transition piece from day to night! Dress it up with pearls, your leopard cardi, and a black pencil skirt for work, then swap the cardi for a cargo vest, and the skirt for leggings and boots to hit the local bar for happy hour.

7.) Aztec/Tribal Print Sweater. I bought my printed open front cardigan near the end of summer in preparation of the impending cooler temps and it may just be my favorite piece this fall. Since most of these types of sweaters are oversized, they are perfect to throw on over just about any solid shirt, embellished tee, or even a button-up - I thinking of you, chambray shirt.

8.) Burgundy Everything. You may remember it from last year's "oxblood" color trend and this year its back - pretty much a continuation of the same thing, but with a new name. These deep reds and berries have stolen my heart and taken over my closet. Make sure to snatch up a piece or two in this rich hue. 

Here are some ways that I have styled my leopard cardigan this fall already, it mixes with lots of other items on the list too!
