Now that we’ve passed the middle of September, it’s time to start thinking about fall – and all the pieces that are worth investing in. You guys know by now that I always start shopping for the basics like coats, knitwear, and trousers before I move into the trendier items. I’ve found that it’s much easier to build a long-lasting wardrobe this way. One of the places I like to scout out first is INTERMIX because they always have a big but well-edited assortment of high-quality finds from basics to the hottest designer pieces of the season. The free shipping and free return policy on all orders also make shopping a breeze.
Although I love just about everything I find at INTERMIX, I’m particularly drawn to their private label collection and exclusive pieces. This season, their personal in-house brand is stocked with the best blend of classic pieces and more forward ones. The overall aesthetic aligns with my style too, which I like to think is elevated, cool, feminine and trendy. The INTERMIX pieces are not only incredibly well-made but on par with well-known designer brands – except they’re way more affordable. If you’re ready to invest in some great fall wardrobe staples that can easily be mixed with the season’s top trends, keep scrolling for my picks.
Warm Neutral Knits
I’m sure you guys know that neutral sweaters make up the bulk of my fall wardrobe. One of the ways I’m updating my knitwear this season is by opting for warmer neutral tones like camel, chocolate, and rusty browns. The INTERMIX sweater I’m wearing is the perfect example of how a simple color update can make your fall outfits feel more current. This especially holds true when you pair them with trendier pieces like split-hem pants or leather leggings.
Ribbed Knit Tops
This fall, you can also expect knitwear to go beyond your staple sweaters and pull-overs. It’s become increasingly common to find ribbed knit tees, tank tops, bodysuits, and dresses. INTERMIX‘s private label has the perfect assortment of ribbed tops that feel both luxe and casual all at once. More importantly, they’re so super comfy to wear and would make a great outfit whether you’re with your friends for a day out in the city or going out for dinner at night.
Leather Pants & Skirts
Leather isn’t an entirely new concept when it comes to cold weather, but it’s definitely a trending fall staple for 2020. These leather pants are easily one of the most versatile pieces you can buy. For being real leather, they’re also reasonably priced. They fit like a legging, so you can wear them to the office or dress them up for a date night. However, they also have zippers at the hem, which can be undone for an edgier look. I’m loving the cool-girl vibe with either sandals or pointed-toe boots.
If I had to name a single staple item that really embodies fall and winter style, it would have to be a coat or jacket. This season’s top styles give us a lot to be excited about. I’m especially loving this INTERMIX camel coat, which is so classic in design with the notched lapels, wrap silhouette, and tie-waist detail. It’s no doubt a smart investment piece for fall as it’s primarily made from wool.
My style in the fall tends to be a little more luxe, and there’s nothing better than a silk top or dress to layer underneath a chunky cardigan or warm coat on a crisp fall day. When you find the perfect fit, it’s hard to not wear it over and over. I pulled together the INTERMIX silk pieces that I felt would be great for dressing up or down all season long.
I can’t talk about fall staples without mentioning face masks since they’ve become an essential for all of us. INTERMIX has such a great offering of designer face masks for fall.
