The fastest, easiest way to get ready in the morning is to have a uniform. Mine is black on black on black with a statement shoe. I sprinkle other colors in when the seasons change, but my go to styles are black. This saves time and makes my life a lot easier, especially with an almost one year old. Though I choose to stick with one color, I get super excited for new silhouettes. Here are five styles no one should be without this season.
1. The Paperbag Waist Pant
The relaxed fit and the tailored shape of a paperbag waist pant channel an elevated ease. This pair from Express is $35 (or less, depending on the color).
2. The Shirtdress
We need a throw-on and go silhouette now more than ever. You can go long or short depending on the weather or your mood. I love nothing more than a black leather shirt dress. It’s easy. It’s sexy. It’s perfect for daytime with a pair of sneakers or low boots. Switch to sexy heels or a high boot for nighttime. If leather isn’t your thing there is a plethora of other fabric options…denim, twill, printed, etc. Anthropologie has fabulous options. This colorful animal stripe one is spot on.
3. The Novelty Sweater
The classic sweater gets an update this season. Special details like the puff sleeve and ruffles are aplenty on this style. The cardigan also makes a comeback in the form of chunky knits. Love this one from Madewell. Comes in two colorways and Madewell Insiders get an additional 40% off right now!
4. Elevated Loungewear
We all need something easy these days. Our WFH outfit is also our grocery store outfit and our park outfit. We’re no longer spending thousands of dollars on office attire, let’s splurge on that matching sweat set and those sneakers we’ve been eyeing.
5. Gray Wash Denim
Gray is the new black. It’s the color in denim this season. Gray wash denim is infinitely versatile. It goes with everything and brings a fresh look for fall.
