Tips For Building Your Fall Wardrobe

A few years ago, my mornings looked like this: I wake up to the loud sound of my alarm clock, eat breakfast and sip matcha while I stare at my closet for about 10 minutes before saying “I have nothing to wear”. I grab the most basic outfit I could find which consisted of jeans, a white t-shirt, and sneakers. Sound familiar?

We all go for what we feel most comfortable in the morning, and for me, I chose easy basics I could throw on in the morning. If you take a look at your closet and see clothes that you haven’t touched in a year or more, or even worse, they still have the tags attached, its time to revalue your wardrobe. Fall is the perfect time to transition your outfits with layering pieces and neutrals!

So, if you want getting ready in the morning to be a seamless process, here are some tips for building your fall wardrobe:

  • Buy and wear neutrals – Neutrals are so easy to create outfits with. Instead of having a bunch of individual items that you have a hard time pairing things with, neutrals will speed up the “picking out an outfit” process and save you time!
  • Plan your outfits the night before – I always like to try on my outfit really quick before bed so I know for sure it will look good in the morning and so I’m not second guessing my choice.
  • Quality over quantity – Although as college students we like to save money I think it is important to buy items that may be a little more expensive because they will last longer. Just because something is more expensive doesn’t mean you have to pay full price for it. Many brands will have flash sales or exclusive app sales, so keep a lookout to stock up on quality pieces.

And now, here is a neutral fall outfit that you can easily throw on in the morning:
