Crisp fall weather has finally hit Chicago so sweaters, booties and neck scarfs will be on rotation for the next couple months. These are all classic pieces, in my opinion, and to add a touch of the season’s latest trends, I invested in a few new closet staples including this super cozy Elodie Rib Knit Lace-Up Sweater from Nordstrom (which is less than $50!).
It’s a timeless grey cabled sweater and the lace-up detail is a subtle way to incorporate the lace-up trend. It’s soft enough to wear alone and will be a perfect pairing with a plaid shirt or layered under a duster coat or vest for chillier days.
To complete my go-to fall uniform:
– high-rise culotte denim pants (I picked these up from H & M in Italy, but here is an exact replica from Forever 21 for less than $20!). I can’t get enough of the culotte/wide pant right now and the cropped legs are perfect for showing off a cute boot!
– a navy neck scarf/bandana (like this one from J.Crew). No matter how much time (or little) you’ve spent getting ready, throw on a neck scarf and you’ve elevated your look to “put together.”
– low heel booties. Enough heel to strut, but low enough to walk in all day long. I just purchased these from T.J.Maxx online and they’re already sold out, but the chestnut color is still available (and less than $25).
