The heart of fall fashion is all about staples. Think foundational pieces that are classic yet versatile enough to work for any occasion. This season, there are tons of classics refreshed with updated twists – and they truly make a high impact in your wardrobe. Some of my favorites include luxury knitwear, anything leather and ornate party wear. Going the investment route with these pieces is key since they’ll hold up better, enabling you to weave them into countless looks. Of course I don’t splurge on everything but when I do, Neiman Marcus is one of the first places I look. Their extensive list of luxury brands and contemporary designers make it easy to create the building blocks of an everlasting wardrobe you’ll actually love. I’m sharing some of my most-loved staples of the season.
Luxe knitwear is your solution to crisp mornings, warm afternoons, and chilly evenings. I always advocate investing in styles made from cashmere, wool, or a mix of the two because they’re not just long lasting but are guaranteed to keep you warm. This Alice + Olivia sweater is perfect for that. In terms of what to pair it with, skip your skinny jeans and opt for flowy pants or faux leather joggers to give your outfit dimension.
The leather trend is going strong at Neiman Marcus, and I just can’t seem to get enough of it. You can never go wrong with a classic leather jacket, but this season, dresses, pants, and tops are become cold-weather fixtures too. I knew I needed these neutral Alice + Olivia joggers as soon as I saw them because playfulness of the silhouette tones down the sleek look of leather. They’re so wearable for any day of the week.
I normally wouldn’t categorize party wear as staple investment pieces, but after a year of putting off social events, it’s definitely worthwhile to spend more in this category. Whether it’s a show-stopping dress or intricate heels, I recommend looking for pieces that add a little luxury. I love how the nude leather and PVC strap on these Gianvito Rossi shoes elongate the legs. It’s no surprise that they’re such a popular pick among celebrities right now. They’ll be making regular appearances in my holiday and evening looks this year
Designer It Bags
Handbags are a fail-proof investment. As long as you buy the right one, it’ll have a place in your closet for years to come. Neiman Marcus carries all the best brands with icon status, such as Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and Loewe. However, they have more affordable It brands too. You guys have been asking me about bags under $500, and some of my favorites are Nanushka, Danse Lente and Staud. Keep an eye out for puffed up textures like this one, ruched detailing, and shearling.
