how to build a fall wardrobe from scratch

Putting outfits together can be so stressful! Especially when you don't have the right essential pieces. About 3 years ago when I looked in my closet I realized it was a MESS. Figuratively and literally. 
My closet was full of tops I would wear once, jeans that were too long for me & I never had the right coat to complete a look. I decided to slowly build my wardrobe by being smarter when I shopped and buy neutral colors & pieces I can wear over and over again different ways. For example, in the fall- long sleeve bodysuits are great on their own (with jeans obviously lol), under a cardigan, under a leather jacket, or with a skirt.
Another tip: I always think of quality over quantity. Id rather spent $50 on one nice thermal top than $50 for 4 cheap thermal tops that fray, will last me 3 wears & just take up unnecessary room in my closet.

Having a few pieces from each of these categories will help you simplify your closet.


Leather Jacket
Suede Moto Jacket
Duster Coat
Sherling Coat/ or pullover
Trench Coat
Wool Coat
Utility Jacket
Sporty vest (love my patagonias!)


Basic short sleeves 
Graphic Tees
Long sleeve waffle tops/ thermals
Long sleeve bodysuits
Off the shoulder tops 
Cardigans (cable knit is my fav)
Half zips & full zip ups for workout wear (I love the define jacket from lululemon)
Crewneck Pullovers/ Hoodies for casual
Jeans (obviously) light, dark & black
Joggers- comfy and athletic
Leggings (cropped and full length)
Non denim pants
Spanx leather leggings (essential!)
Skirts (leather or suede) 

Bags (neutral purses, fanny pack & a travel bag are essential)
Shoes: (90% of my shoes are Steve Madden)
Mid length boots
Over the knee boots (tan or black)
Athletic sneakers
'Fashion sneakers' (neutral colors to pair with more outfits)
