Essential Fall Wardrobe?

Recommended Posts

Okay, I am pretty much starting from scratch since my fall/winter clothes are worn to threads and my kids have outgrown all their stuff. I need a couple of lists to help me shop with purpose. So, what items are really needed for each of the categories below? Say that one nice pair of blue jeans, a nice winter coat and snow clothes are already on the list. What would you add?



Adult woman - stay at home/church going/occasional business-dresser


Teen boys


Teen girl


Five year old girl

I am sooo into fall clothing...love the layering, jackets, scarves, hats, and all. I try to find jackets that I can wear many ways. This year I have bought 2 jackets(one from Chico and one from Coldwater Creek) and they are ones that I can dress up or down with jeans/slacks and boots/heels/flats.

I also try to buy basic long sleeve tees that I can layer in a variety of colors. I have found ones that I like for a great price at Charlotte Russe in the mall. They also have some great sweaters for layering. I have bought a couple of those long sleeveless wraps that are very slimming and make you look long and lean!(even my 5' tall mil says they do!)

Boots are a definite for me...I bought tall flat heeled leather ones last year to wear with skinny jeans and this year I have added some suede ankle booties for a different look.

Look at TJ Maxx, Marshall's for great separates, scarves. I find most of my handbags there as well.
