With the change of the season upon us, fashionistas all over are more than excited for fall fashion. From shoes to scarves, it is important to make sure you have the basics in your closet. Next time you go shopping, pull up this post to help you find the perfect fall essentials.  



Oversized Sweater - Shein - http://shopstyle.it/l/mcd7

An oversized sweater is a must-have for fall and winter because it is the base for all layered looks. Oversized sweaters can be paired with almost any piece for any occasion: pencil skirts, jeans, leggings, dresses (layered underneath or on top), and mini skirts. Sometimes, I wear my oversized sweaters as dresses paired with thigh high boots for a more risque look.



Fleece Lined Leggings - L.L. Bean - http://shopstyle.it/l/mceD

If you are familiar with cold weather, you are familiar with layering your bottoms to keep warm. While longjohns are comfy, they are not easy to fit underneath fitted clothing. I wear fleece lined leggings under my skinny jeans to keep my legs nice and warm. Also, if you are wearing a skirt and boots, you can switch fleece leggings out for stockings.



Trench Coat - Shein - http://shopstyle.it/l/mcmm

A lightweight trench coat, like this one from Shein can be easily paired with chunky and/or lightweight knit sweaters. The neutral color and belted waistline are perfect in everyway. I have seen some bold fashionistas wear their trenches as dresses. Experiment with the look if you dare.



Scarf, Beanie, Gloves Knit Set - Saks Off 5th - http://shopstyle.it/l/mce0

You will not survive the fall/winter without the proper knitwear. This handy set from Saks Off 5th provides you with all the accessories you need: a warm scarf, a cozy beanie, and gloves.



Thigh High Boots - Nordstrom Rack - http://shopstyle.it/l/mcfa

You’ve seen them on the runways, in your favorite stores, and now you’ll see them in your closet. Thigh high boots are a great accessory because they add a bit of sass to your outfit. These sky high taupe boots are the perfect neutral color and dramatic length (even for vertically challenged fashionistas like myself).
