Along with fall comes a ton of new items that need to be added to your wardrobe, am I right? While it's tempting to buy every cozy sweater, over the knee boot, and plaid scarf in sight, there are definitely a few fall closet essentials that will carry you throughout the season. This year, I was in need of a some fall staple items so I thought I would share!

BLACK DENIM 

I wear black denim on repeat once the cooler weather hits. For this reason, I invest. I love both plain denim & distressed denim. I think having a black pair of each style is essential because they are two totally different looks. Rips add a little edge, while regular black denim is classic and chic. I purchased this plain black pair and have this distressed pair on my wishlist. This is the first time I have purchased denim by Madewell and I have to say, I'm impressed! They fit is amazing and the price point is mid range so I think they are totally worth it! Read another review on Madewell denim here.

BLACK BOOTIES 

This season I was due for a new pair of black booties! I purchased this pair and couldn't be happier! I have them in the taupe color as well and they have lasted me two full seasons! The quality is amazing and I have a feeling they will be discontinued after this year because they are on major sale right now! I say they fit true to size, but if you're worried I would size up a half size since they are final sale. They will be a little snug at first, but trust me, they stretch.

LEGGINGS 

Ah, legging season is upon us. Besides wearing them to gym, they are great for every day when paired with an oversized sweater or tunic. I invest in my leggings (and active wear) because I know it will last. The Align Pant II from Lulu Lemon is my go to choice. However, if you're looking for a pair that is reasonably priced and better quality than most, this pair is a great option. I own both but always opt for my lulu's when they are clean haha!

BOMBER JACKET

Every year there are so many amazing jackets and coats that come with the cooler months. I already have a leather jacket that is in great condition from last year, so this year I opted to try the bomber trend. This bomber is a little outside my comfort zone, but I couldn't pass it up. When I saw this one, I knew I had to try it, and when I tried it, I knew I had to have it. I sized up to a medium and the fit is perfect. It's lightweight which makes it perfect for layering. It's also under $80 so it won't break the bank! See how I styled it in this post

TIE SLEEVE SWEATER

It's no secret that I love a good, cozy, oversized sweater for fall. I mean, who doesn't? This year there are a ton with tie sleeves and I'm not mad about it. I love the tie sleeve trend because it adds that little extra detail. This one comes in 8 colors and is under $60! There are also a number of sweaters out there this fall that have ruffle sleeves and pretty embroidery! 

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know which closet essentials you're purchasing this fall!
