Good basics are important for fall. Neutral colors allow one to mix and match and also layer. These five fashion basics are important for any teen’s closet for fall.
Military Inspired Jacket
Military inspired pieces are popular this fall. Details should be understated and in an army green. This is a great layering piece to put over black, grey and white tees. It also goes well with jeans or black skirts. The military ruffle jacket from Free People has double ruffle trim along the bottom. Its army green color and buttons are reflective of the current trend. This costs 168.00 and comes in sizes zero to twelve. Army green looks good with so many colors. Plus, it’s a great alternative to a basic black jacket and will match
Ankle boots are popular again. Get a neutral pair in grey or black to match the majority of your clothing. These look great with skinny jeans, jeggings and shorter skirts. The r2 Cori Bow ankle boot is simple and cute. It comes in grey, dark brown and black. Choose from sizes six to ten. Get them for $49.50 at delias.com.
Long Sleeved Striped Tee
Thin horizontal stripes in neutral colors look good with just about everything. Also, long sleeve shirts are good for cooler weather and layer nicely. Try the striped long sleeved shirt from Wet Seal. It comes in charcoal heather and ivory stripes. Purchase it for only $9.50. Striped shirts look good with any solid bottom and add a little something more than a basic one toned shirt. If you are more adventurous, you can even pair a stripe with a floral.
Jeggings are a cross between jeans and leggings. They have skinny legs and typically have thicker material than a regular legging. In addition, they look good with boots, tunics and long cardigans. Most trendy stores are selling this item. American Eagle Outfitters has a good selection of jeggings. One of my favorites is the soft black jeggings with 2% spandex for soft, stretchy cotton. The super dark destroyed jegging has slight destroyed detailing. Both of these cost $49.50 and come in sizes double zero to eighteen.
Wrap yourself up in style with a cocoon sweater. From vests to long sleeves cardigans, this fashion comes in many forms. Get a longer one to go with leggings and a shorter one for jeans. The Jocelyn Cocoon cardigan is a good pick. It looks good with both tanks and long sleeve tees. Choose from dark indigo, oatmeal or ivory. The acrylic sweater comes in sizes x-small to x-large and costs $49.50 at Delias. For a variation on this, try the open cardigan.
