When I woke up this morning there was a nice crisp breeze in the air and I instantly cuddled up in the coziest sweatshirt I could find and grabbed a warm cup of coffee. It’s feeling like FALL y’all! So naturally that means it’s time for a closet refresh. I jumped right online to one of my favorite retailers to search for some new things. For me, fall is all about mixing and matching the best basics and adding some fun plaids. So I’ve rounded up (and styled!) my 15 favorite preppy pieces from J.Crew Factory that you NEED for fall!
Need some styling advice now that your shopping list is ready? Look no further! Fall styling is my absolute favorite and ALL the pieces I picked can be paired together! Don’t you just love being able to mix and match everything in your closet?! I know I sure do. Now all these pieces are amazing and share a similar tone and color pallet that make it super simple to mix and match. You honestly can’t mess it up. So go ahead and half tuck that flannel shirt jacket into that chestnut corduroy skirt! Still stuck? Read on for the five basic looks I’ve put together!
Look One- The “Wear Now”
Okay so this outfit may be too warm to wear in some parts of the good ol’ US of A but I would totally throw this on and walk out the door right now. I love a good sweater vest (aka sleeveless sweater) and the pretty marled knit of this keeps the style looking light enough for those cooler summer days! I’m also very obsessed with this scarf and currently have it in my shopping cart!
Look Two- The “Basic B*tch”
Can you BE any more basic for fall?! Distressed denim, chambray and a quilted vest- everything you need for a fall photo shoot while picking apples. You’ll wear each of these pieces forever (you seriously never know how often you’ll actually wear a chambray shirt until you buy one) and you need to make sure you get your J.Crew vests before they sell out!
Look Three- The “Plaid Perfection”
This skirt gives me some serious Blair Waldorf Season 1 vibes. The subtle check with a navy background is the perfect edition to any fall wardrobe! You can’t go wrong with any of the J.Crew Factory sidewalk skirts. The fit is amazing and they are so flattering! I’ve never seen them look bad on anyone.
Now for the sweater blazer. These were ALL. THE. RAGE. last fall at J.Crew and they sold out extremely fast. I’m so excited to see them at the factory store at a more affordable price (and in more colors!). Snag these beauties up before they sell out. I seriously cannot recommend them enough! I wear mine all the time!
Look Four- “The Stripe 2 for 1”
I’m obsessed with the idea of this shirt! Anything that essentially does my layering for me in a win in my book! I have the retail version of this corduroy skirt from last year and let me tell you- this color goes with everything (it looks super cute with a pair of black tights and a chunky sweater). And I have no words for this great jacket- but I need it.
Look Five- “The Shirt Jacket”
These plaid shirt jackets were another hot J.Crew item that sold out so fast last year. I’m obsessed with the color combos that they’re available in this year. I mean, that navy and teal?! Perfection! Teal is such a perfect color for fall but is so unexpected. You’ll be seeing me in these J.Crew quilted vests all fall and winter long- I have 9 of them (not kidding) and if I could wear them all at once every day of the year I totally would! They’re by far my #1 recommendation for fall!
