There’s nothing I love more than pulling back out all of my fall sweaters, coats, and leather separates come September. It’s around this time that I asses what I have, what is looking sad and needs to go, what basics are missing… and give my wardrobe a bit of a seasonal refresh. Of course I splurge on a couple new season style finds, but the items that I always rebuy this time of year that make such a difference when styling last year’s fall favorites are a few layering basics.
I stopped into Nordstrom and stocked up on my favorites. Halogen has a great affordable selection of long layering tanks that I like to wear under my sweaters and dresses for added warmth, tucked into jeans, or even layered over tees as styled here. Another must that I rebuy this time of year, the tissue thin turtleneck. I really got into layering these when I lived on the East Coast. A must when it’s negative-crazy degrees outside! I love that the collar adds a bit of interest when layering under dresses, sweaters, and coats. Vince makes my favorite splurge-worthy tissue thin one as it’s ribbed and feels dressier. I like that they can be worn on their own with denim or dressed up if worn with a skirt or under a dress for work.
I brought this studded leather miniskirt with me to London and it was one of the fall pieces I was most excited about wearing. I’ve since worn it a number of ways. With boots, sneakers, slouchy sweaters, and pretty blouses. I’m obsessed!
Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
