Basic clothes for the autumn 2014

What are your favourite things in autumn? For me it’s the possibility of creating various outfits with the help of layering. Certainly to make it, you should choose wonderful fall basics. They can be simple and plain like white T-shirts, tops or neutral pants which can help you in the transformation of the multiple outfits. So you should have various tanks, tops, bottoms and accessories to have an opportunity to make stylish ensembles.

Stick to the classic style choosing neutral tones and jeans cut, but opt for trendy jewelry and new updated silhouettes. We want to give you several tips and tricks how to choose fundamentals for the nest season.  Follow them when you get shopping.

Long cardigans

Basic pieces

Underclothing is the key for creation versatile and perfect outfits. There can never be too many tees and tanks, but if you think you have already a lot of them, think about neutral and black shades. They are must-haves. What else? Good bra should provide good support for the whole day and you should have some.

Various tops

Every fashionista should have some button-downs and delicate blouses for the fall. They are very universal. You can wear them in many different ways – tie the tails of the shirt or leave it unbuttoned wearing a bright tank underneath, roll up your sleeves. As for the colours, opt for black, navy and white. Also choose patterned and printed tops, to be able to mix them in many different ways.

Trendy fall pants

Basic and creative bottoms

Search for simple basic garments to make your every day routine more simple and manifold. You can create different outfits for the work week and the days off. Black pants are always on top. Opt for the comfortable models which will get tailored to your figure shape. Every woman should have a little black dress. It can be adorned with various accessories and beautiful footwear. Denim pieces help in the creation of the casual look.

To add some stylish elements think about the bottoms with plenty of pockets. Everyone knows dresses with pockets can look much better. J.W.Anderson has created amazing kangaroo pants with two pockets which sling low on the knees. They are very comfortable and look very stylish and ladylike. The peplum material adds sexy and feminine lines even to the boyish hips. Such trousers are called kangaroo pants. They are gently flared and very cute and cozy. But wearing them don’t forget about little stylish clutch or in other case your pockets can become a receptacle for various things like candy wrappers or discarded receipts. Your mobile phone and other items should also be in the clutch, not in the deep pockets of these kangaroo pants.

Sweaters and cardigans

Knits are so cozy and soft. On cold autumn evenings it’s such a pleasure to wear warm sweaters or cardigans. Last year the knits were vintage-inspired, this year texture is on-trend. But don’t buy cashmere and wool pullovers, sweaters or crewnecks. Plain sweaters are out and textured ones have been seen on the runways. Cable knits, chunky sweaters, various box stitches and beautiful quilts are popular now. Fashion designers like Derek Lam, Phillip Lim and DSquared have shown beautiful textured sweaters for the fall season at the Fashion week in New York.

Cardigans come in many different colours with various prints and patterns. They are perfect for layering during the cold months. Long cardigans and sweaters have been shown by Tracy Reese, Thakoon and DKNY on the runways. You can wear knits as warm and comfortable outwear on the beginning of the fall and layer them underneath jackets and coats when the temperature falls down later to add extra warmth to the outfit.

Stylish vests

In autumn layering can help you to create amazing and trendy looks. Vests look cool and dressy like jackets and, certainly, they are ready-for-fall and can not differ from any outwear with sleeves. This season they have become longer, up to the mid of the thigh. Many fashion designers and brands like Christian Dior, DKNY, Rodarte, Givenchy, Victoria Beckham, Zimmermann  and others have shown vests in their collections on the runways.

Trendy fall shoes and boots

Coats and jackets

Fall is very changeable. It can be warm and nice in the morning and in a few minutes the freezing rain can begin. That’s why you should have various items of outwear to deal with the weather conditions. They can be various trenches, blazers, capes and lighter jackets.  Later wear marm coats and jackets.

Beautiful accessories

The fall 2014 is the season of different experiments. Certainly, you can wear only navy and black accessories (they are on top), but it’s rather dull. Add some dangling necklaces or structural purses or briefcases to create a cool look. Add sensibility to your basic pieces and catch everyone’s eyes.

Basic footwear

Autumn is a season of different boots. This year they can be of different styles, length and colours. If you want you can choose riding boots or stylish booties, heels or flats. You can choose what you like, but think about your styles and colour palette.

Basic wardrobe can be supplemented with bright and trendy items. But the main pieces should have every fashionista to look perfect in any situation.
