If there's one thing I am when it comes to fashion and style it's a lover of all things classic. While keeping things fresh and up-to-date is key,  I think true style really begins in these classic colors in pieces. I can still remember admiring fashion icons wearing similar styles and shades which have gone on to shape my personal style.

Today I've put together a few pieces that would be perfect and highly appropriate for early fall. The addition of some other transitional pieces like this coat would help take things further into season.  So let's take a look at how style the classics.

For me, when it comes to autumn, it's always all about the turtleneck. Fine gauge knits start me off each September as they are so breathable and easily layered.  This gorgeous version would work so well with many of the pieces you probably already own.  I love it here with these tan trousers which would be perfect for daytime or drinks depending how you style it.  This pair of loafers would be just the thing for keeping the look casual and smart.

Going with a monochromatic vision is always a good idea as long as you add some bits of interest via another color.  Here I went with the obvious choice of black in most of my accessories as well as this coat.   There is just something about a lapel collar outerwear piece that elevates any look even if it's just jeans and a T-shirt.  Because of that, I definitely recommend it as a good investment come fall. 

Gold jewelry adds the finishing touch to what I consider a very well curated outfit choice.  If you love any of the pieces you see, I've linked them in the ready-to-shop thumbnails below.  Enjoy!
