Make Your Basics Anything But Boring With Accessories

In my journey to streamline my wardrobe, I have found that carefully curated accessories can completely change an outfit. Armed with this, I am able to maintain a lean, versatile wardrobe while adding fun and often inexpensive accessories each season to keep me from getting bored. For this and many other reasons (PSLs, sweaters, foliage, pumpkins!!), fall is one of my favorite times of the year.

The fluctuating temperatures, cool breezes and cozy vibe are the perfect excuse for scarves, hats, gloves and more resulting in endless outfit combinations. Take this outfit for example. The foundation pieces consist of my favorite skinny jeans from LOFT which are the perfect weight, color and length for year-round wear, a classic white Brooks Brothers button down and a cream cashmere cable knit sweater. Worn together or individually these basics perfectly compliment a versatile, streamlined wardrobe of classic pieces that will never go out of style. But, that doesn't mean I don't want to mix it up each season and be able to participate in trends that suit my lifestyle and tastes. Hence, my love of accessories. Both the fedora and this amazing Southwestern printed shawl are from Forever 21 and were inexpensive but still really good quality.

When thrown over my shoulders and secured with a classic leather belt, this shawl instantly transforms this outfit and makes these timeless basics feel more current. Worn with the fedora and the look is transformed once more from casual to cool, allowing me to participate in the Southwestern trend without the remorse of a closet full of trendy pieces once it passes.
