The Best & Affordable Fall Basics To Invest In
Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing the best & affordable fall basics to invest in. This year I decided to create more of a capsule wardrobe for fall and I’ve been picking and investing in some affordable pieces that I can wear now, through different seasons and for next fall too. This entire outfit is super affordable and since I’m putting myself on a budget for the upcoming holidays like I mentioned here making this whole outfit cost me less then $50 so for me that is amazing. So here are the details for the best & affordable fall basics to invest in!
First let me gush about this top I literally just got in the mail. I just opened it and had to shoot it right away as I loved it as soon as I tried it on. I first saw this top in this gorgeous white color but had so many white tops so I went for this spice color. I knew I needed more colors like this in my wardrobe and promised myself I would wear more colors like this this fall. So here I am in a different kind of color for me and I’m really liking it. Another great thing about this top is it was under $13 and I knew I had to add it to my cart immediately. For the top I’m wearing an XL and it fits me just how I like it. The buttons are a bit stretchy since the material is as well so I’m not sure if it is the sizing or what but I do recommend as it is the softest tee and the color is gorgeous. The black jeans I am wearing my regular size which is a 16. They are the perfect fit on me and I love that. They aren’t really high rise but they do go high enough to suck me in. They are skinny enough to look good but not over tight where I can’t do anything in them. Plus the ankle hits me at the perfect length. I really think you need these but I suggest waiting for a sale as they are a bit pricey for me for a pair of jeans.

I was first introduced to this top last fall and really wanted one so in the beginning of this year I picked one up and I even wrote about how to style it two ways here. I was so excited for fall to hit because that meant I could style it up. I wrote about how to transition this top into fall here. I love how versatile it is and how cute as well. It’s super comfy and such a great basic.
With these sort of tops and also off the shoulder sweaters, I love pairing a cute statement bra underneath to peak out. It’s such a fun detail and gives your outfit a bit more sexiness to it. So I think investing in a good bra or bralette would be great if you wear a top that compliments it and goes with the style. If you don’t like the bra option and want to be a bit more conservative then a silky camisole would be cute and you still get that peak a boo style to achieve the same look with less skin.
I really love skinny black denim jeans this time of year. It looks great for all seasons but I have seen so pretty outfits styled with these jeans. I think a good pair of black denim is the most essential in a fall capsule wardrobe and if you find a pair you love then even better because you know you will get so much use out of it. I know I can already see myself wearing these so much and styling them with different tops.
You can’t go wrong with a gorgeous fall tone bag. I linked the three that I love and have been wearing on repeat. I suggest getting one that can be used all the time like mine. I love my black everyday bag and wear it with so many things. The tan colored bag is my go to color for this year as I wanted to incorporate it more into my color palette.Lastly is a neutral which is a griege color and looks so good with multiple outfits. So find a fall colored bag and you love and it will be your go to essential.
I’ve been needing some new sneakers and I think they are such a cute footwear option for fall. I definitely think you can’t go wrong with white sneakers as they look great with a lot of outfits and fit into my wardrobe perfectly. I love leopard for this time of year like everyone else and it is definitely a neutral and looks so good. You can’t go wrong with shoes like this and it is a comfy option instead of boots so a pair of white sneakers is a good alternative.
The accessories for this outfit I focused on a pop of leopard. I love my hair bow and it brings out the sneakers which are the cutest. I’ve been eyeing these sneakers for a month now. I first saw them on Instagram and it so happens that I was finally heading to Walmart the next day and I made it my mission to try them on as they were in stock. I don’t know why I didn’t get them then but I do have them now. They are super comfy and look amazing on. My everyday bag is my go to and so easy to go with everything. My jewelry is my everyday stuff including my crown studs, bow pendent earrings and bow and tiara ring.
Those were the best & affordable fall basics to invest in! I honestly love this outfit and how it turned out. It is my go to fall outfit and so easy to throw on and go and still look good.
