Five non-basic items to get before they sell out

The current trend of cleaning and detoxing your body, your mind and your closet feels just right. The goal is to streamline and make your day-to-day life more simple, meaningful and enjoyable.

In the wardrobe department the rules are simple:

Make sure you have quality essentials across all categories of clothing and eliminate pieces that don’t feel or look good. Or simply are not “you” anymore. Buy only staples to fill any gaps you may find—and remember, quality over quantity.

Second, limit your new purchases to maximum five non-basic items per season. This fall refresh your closet with earthy tones, animal prints and pops of color. Versatile statement pieces will always make you stand out with a contemporary edge.


For fall sweaters are my first choice because (obviously….! ) they would get a lot of wear. Assuming you already have the essentials – one black cashmere and one charcoal grey sweater –  I suggest going for a piece that is on trend and will look amazing paired with any old jeans, black pants or skirt you already own.


The cheery stripes of this raw edge wool & cashmere Pam & Gela Multistripe Crew Neck Sweater sweater will cheer you up all while keeping you in edgy style. I’m showing how to wear stripes here. No wander it is sold out already on Nordstrom’s  site! Get your hands on it while you still can here  or here

The cool camo print Jcrew sweater $89.50 has the details we love about a sweatshirt- raglan sleeves and an easy fit, plus  it is crafted in a cozy merino knit!
This light Rag & Bone Dex Wool Argyle Cropped Sweater  it’s a standout with its cropped silhouette and classic preppy print, finished with the sporty contrast rib-knit trim. The vibrant colors will pair brilliantly with any neutral and bring it to life.
Striped A&O
Alice + Olivia Rhodes Striped Pullover $295– has a subtle shimmer that elevates the bold stripes. It will up the style factor no matter what bottom you choose to pair it with.


A silk blouse can be worn on its own, layered underneath a blazer or under a solid sweater and will spice up your wardrobe for months to come.
