You don’t need a huge closet full of clothes to look fabulous this fall. The secret to a chic wardrobe is having a few key pieces that are flexible, comfortable and totally on trend. I’ve partnered with Christopher & Banks to show you what I mean.
Here’s what you need to create a stylish fall wardrobe that works.
Anchor Your Wardrobe With A Little Black Dress
Every woman needs a go-to dress in her closet that she can wear just about anywhere. This classy Ponte knit dress is it! Think of this dress as a blank canvas. There are so many ways to change your look by simply adding different jackets, sweaters, jewelry, and accessories.
The best part is that Ponte is soft and comfy. It stretches with your shape and follows your curves. The hip way to wear a knit dress this fall? With a colored faux leather jacket and a long, slimming scarf.
Pop on a Poncho
Express your creative side with a pretty poncho. This 70’s inspired piece has an artsy bohemian vibe. You can wear it as a statement sweater, or layer it over a blouse or top. Gray + burgundy is such a striking color combination, and so on point at the moment.
Pair this look with Ponte pants or leggings, or even jeans. It’s the perfect thing to wear when you are running around on the weekend doing errands or visiting friends.
Accent with an Animal Print
Now and then you need a great print to spice things up. This alluring leopard top will make your wardrobe exciting and fun.
Pair it with black Ponte leggings, flats, and a faux leather jacket. The beauty of this top is that it captures the animal print trend without “roaring too loudly”. It’s trendy but sophisticated, and the V-neck is slimming.
Look Cool and Confident in Leather
The best way to give your wardrobe a modern edge is to mix in a leather or faux leather jacket.
Black leather can look heavy and drain you, but a pop of color adds warmth and makes you look vibrant and youthful. Choose a richly colored jacket that is soft and lightweight, and wear it with an interesting statement blouse to look updated and chic.
