10 Fall Wardrobe Staples to Prioritize This Season

When it comes to dressing for fall, there are a lot of elements we have to think about -- literally. One minute it could be sunny and 75* and the next, it could be hailing. Especially here in the mountains, you never know what you're going to get. So with this in mind, we have to build our fall wardrobes mindfully and creating a solid foundation is the first step.

When investing in new pieces for fall, there are three factors that I always try to keep in mind: layering, seasonality, and timelessness.

Three Questions to Ask Yourself When Building a Fall Wardrobe:

  1. Can you layer with it?

  2. Is it seasonally appropriate?

  3. Is this something I would wear next year or even next season?

If it doesn't check at least 2 of these, it's a pass (the 3rd being the post important in my eyes).

After you've established this baseline, it's time to prioritize these 10 staple items this season.
