The eternal fall wardrobe: 8 staples to buy now and wear forever

Many of us are guilty of splurging on trends, only to find that it is no longer in style that following year. These types of buying habits are frustrating and expensive, to say the least. While it is still nice to have a few on-trend items in our closets, it is the classic pieces that give us the best return on investments. If you are looking to turn your closet into the eternal fall wardrobe, here are a few items to invest in.

The eternal fall wardrobe: 8 staples to buy now and wear forever

Ankle boots

Ankle boots have been the hero of the fall season for more than a few decades already. And while the ankle boot doesn’t seem to be leaving the fashion scene anytime soon, there are still many styles to choose from. To ensure longer wear, opt for a boot that has a more classic style with either a rounded, square, or pointed toe.


Layering is key when it comes to fighting off the cold during the fall, and a turtleneck is the star of the show. It can be layered under blazers, sweaters, blouses, or trench coats for a casual chic feel. But it can also be used as the focal point of the entire outfit by tucking into a pair of slim trousers or a skirt to create an elegant and polished silhouette.

Motorcycle jackets

The modest leather jacket has proven time and time again that it is no match for fading trends. We have seen this staple piece featured since the late 1920s, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. Investing a few more dollars in genuine leather rather than faux or synthetic materials will ensure that you get many years of wear.

Trench coats

From the Duchess of Cambridge to the Red Carpet, a classic trench coat is perfect for any occasion. While they do come in various cuts and colors, it is best to stick to khaki or neutral colors with a basic cut that can be mixed and matched with various outfits and colors.


Thanks to the incredible versatility of a blazer, you never have to worry about being out of style. Whether you are in a corporate environment or pairing it with a white shirt and jeans on the weekend, a blazer looks stylish no matter the occasion. Slouchy or a more tailored fit is a perfect addition to the eternal fall wardrobe.

Chunky knits

Chunky knit sweaters are not only comfortable and warm, but they are also uber stylish. They can be worn with a pair of jeans, tucked into a skirt, or worn over a dress to create a timeless and fashionable statement.

Midi skirts

Wearing jeans and trousers can get a bit boring, especially in the fall. Investing in a beautiful midi skirt is a refreshing change that doesn’t require you to skimp on any warmth either. Pair it with an ankle boot, stockings, and a turtleneck and you have yourself an outfit that will last through the ages.

Straight leg jeans

Jeans are a no brainer when it comes to fall, but with every passing year, cuts and fades come and go. However, there is one cut that has continued to grace the fashion scene year after year. The straight leg jean! Dress it up, or dress it down, this type of denim is perfect for any occasion. Be sure to pick one that does not have any fades or rips, and has a waistline that compliments your figure.
