Nineteen Fashion Essentials To Ensure Your Fall Wardrobe Is Set

Everyone loves talking about “the next big trend” or “statement making pieces.” But in reality 99 percent of what we tend to wear are staple pieces that we mix and match to build super #RAD #OOTDs.

Despite what you read/see on Instagram, your wardrobe doesn’t have to (nor shouldn’t) be over-the-top trendy to be fashionable. Curate your closet with these 19 essentials and your fall wardrobe will be set to make this semester your most stylish one yet!

1—A white scoop neck T-shirt. Wear it under a slip dress, with jeans or even just granny panties while watching Netflix (I mean studying) in bed. Most versatile piece. Ever. (Photo via @amandakrabucha)
