Fall is probably my favorite season to shop and dress for. I love the cozy pieces, the colors, really everything about it and it’s mostly because I love to layer! I think layering is the cutest way to really take your Fall outfits up a notch. A few weeks ago I got a DM from one of you who noticed I always love a good layer (lace cami under a cardigan etc.) and asking if I would do a post all about the best pieces to layer under things in Fall and Winter. I thought it was a genius idea and here we are!
I’m a big believer that if you have the right staples/key pieces in your closet you actually end up getting more wear out of the rest of your closet, because you can style them a bunch of different ways! For example if you have a flannel, you can wear it by itself, with a tank or dress under it, open (I did this a lot when I was pregnant) or under something like a sweater! Layering basics allow you to really get creative with your closet! So, I’ve rounded up an ultimate but condensed list of must-haves basics that have already been on major repeat this season.
I’ve also been thinking about doing a Fall capsule wardrobe. I did a Summer one (here if you missed it) and you guys loved it so much that I’ve been wanting to do one of Fall. Comment below and let me know if you’d like see a post about that or even me just sharing more ways I style all of these layering basics.
This bodysuit is everything for fall! You can wear this so many ways, I’m thinking with skirts or high-waisted denim! It’s super comfy, flattering and comes in a few great basic colors. I purchased it in black and grey.
Sizing: I went with a small!
I’ve been loving this turtleneck as a layering piece lately. It’s so cute under a cardigan or a fun denim/sherpa jacket! I even love wearing it under flannels to add a little extra warmth. It’s fairly thin but not sheer at all, so it acts as a perfect as a base layer!
Abercrombie & Fitch
If you were following along over the summer, you know I’ve been wearing these lace tanks for months. I’m obsessed! They are such a perfect staple that can be dressed up or down. I love these under cardigans with jeans or even with joggers! You can create so many different looks with these tanks.
Treasure & Bond
This is the perfect basic tank! The fit is great and comes in the best neutral colors. I’m loving this for more my casual days around the house. I’ve styled it recently with joggers and a cardigan! It’s also long, so it’s perfect for layering when you’re wearing leggings!
Sizing: S (I went with a small so it wouldn’t pull between the boob area)
Flannels are perfect for fall and for layering! You can style them so many ways, buttoned up, unbuttoned with a tee/bodysuit under, or tied up! One of my favorite things about a good plaid button up is that you can wear it as the bottom or top layer, making it extra versatile.
I really wanted to include an uber affordable option here, since I know y’all like that! This one is the best plaid I’ve found at this price point and comes in a bunch of great patterns and colors.
I found this gem before my Vermont trip and loved it! It’s great quality, perfect slightly oversized fit and the perfect price-point. This particular color (the one I’m wearing in a few of these pics), goes with a ton!
The most expensive of the three, but totally worth it in my opinion. Yes, this is a splurge but once you take the plunge, you’ll get why! They are SO flattering, soft and just hit all the right places. I have more of these than I’d care to mention and wear them 24/7 during the Fall and Winter.
