If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times … versatile basics are my go-to for every season. If you’re going to buy designer, invest in pieces you can wear often and for years to come.
A great watch, neutral pea coat, classic backpack, and leather boots are items you could wear every single day or for any occasion. Mix these designer basics with cheaper, trendier, fast fashion, and you’ll be ready to conquer the autumn months.
