Building a fall wardrobe? Get these 12 items first … on sale!
Take advantage of Friends & Family sales, happening now
Here’s a confession: I’m not a big sale shopper. I believe in buying items when they’re right, not just because they’re on sale. But, before you get upset with me, hear me out and I’ll explain!! The reason I’m not a big “end-of-season sale” shopper is because I worry that by next year, I might not like what I bought this year 😂 However, when you already have an item on your list and THEN you spot it on sale and grab it … now that’s what I’m talking about! We love those kind of sale finds around here, and that’s the topic of today’s post.
Keep reading to see the 12 essentials I highly recommend buying first. This will lay the foundation and make it easy to add on until your closet is complete! From there, you can start adding the extras … in other words, the fun things that truly make a closet your own. And, because we’re in sale mode thanks to some Friends & Family sales at the moment, I made a board at the bottom of this post with all the fun stuff — and it’s all on sale! I hope you like it 😊 Happy shopping!

12 wardrobe essentials
Why these 12 essentials?
… I thought about these long and hard 😊
Blazer: Truly a wardrobe staple! You can’t go wrong with a Veronica Beard Miller jacket, or the Cinq a Sept Khloe — my two favorites. For a sale version, this Rag & Bone Ponte knit one is super cool and you’ll wear it all the time!
Wool coat: Find a coat you love, and plan on wearing it all the time for the next few years. I’m loving this one.
Trench coat: Whether you want to splurge on a Burberry or go for this J.Crew one, a trench coat is always stylish and versatile. I wore this $100 Orolay one all last season. For an affordable version, you can’t go wrong with this Sam Edelman
Lightweight cardigan: I recently purchased this lightweight cashmere cardigan from Cuyana, and it was perfect for the airplane. It’s soft and it’s a great length. I LOVE this Vince one, and for an affordable option, look at this one on the F&F sale, or this J.Crew one
Black jeans: I wear black jeans all year around (except in 100 degree weather!), both longer length or ankle length. The blackish/grayish wash I’m wearing above and the Mother Hustler (in this wash) are my two favorites
… and here are the last 5
Black blouse: I used to tell everyone I helped that a good black blouse works wonders! Must admit, I’m always surprised at how many people don’t own a black blouse. When you don’t know what to wear, a black blouse and black jeans always look polished no matter where you’re going. I love this one by Frame, but I know it’s a crazy splurge. Vince has one on the F&F sale (starts tomorrow) right now that you might consider!
And now for the fun stuff: everything on sale
