  • Classic Blazers

The best thing about a simple blazer is that you can dress it up or down. Rock it with a simple white tank top and some oversized jean shorts, or elevate it with a leather skirt or some baggy denim with simple layered accessories

  • "Coastal Grandmother" Trousers

You read that correctly. The "Coastal Grandmother" style features effortless and minimalistic coastal pieces such as those worn by Dian Keaton in Something's Gotta Give. The trend has taken off on TikTok, with coastal grandmother-inspired linen trousers having a serious moment, as well.

  • White tanks & halter tops

Layers are everything for fall 2022 fashion, and these two classic pieces can easily transform any look. Simple white tanks can be worn under jean jackets or spruced up with blazers or trousers and stilettos, and halter tops can add a little spice to a casual outfit.

  • Crisscross jeans

Crisscross jeans were in this spring, and it turns out the trend is alive and well going into the fall, too. Staying true to the season's versatility trend, these bad boy's can be styled to fit for any occasion.

  • Baseball Caps & headscarves

Whether you're having a bad hair day or want to make a casual yet stylish statement, having a go-to baseball cap or headscarf in your closet will surely be a life-saver on the days when styling your hair is out of the question.

With these fall 2022 fashion staples in your closet, you'll be fully equipped with the essentials for any casual or fire 'fit.
