Elevated Fall Wardrobe Basics For Less

31 total views

It’s quickly becoming my favorite time of year…cashmere season. My fall and winter uniform for the last few years usually involves a cashmere sweater, jeans, and some booties or sneakers. As I transition my wardrobe over, I’m noticing some of my cashmere did not survive the summer storage as well as others.

This post is sponsored by Nordstrom Rack and Shopstyle Collective. I’ve bought some amazing treasures at Nordstrom Rack lately, so I’m always excited to work with them. They have many brick-and-mortar stores, but I always have my best success online where the selection is largest. Here’s what I found this time.

CASHMERE CREWNECK in small / HIGH RISE BOOTCUT JEANS size 29  / CASHMERE SCARF / SIMILAR SHIRT / JOHN HARDY HOOPS / SIMILAR BOOTIES

These yummy 360 cashmere crewnecks for 59% off. This is a timeless classic I can wear for many years to come, available in eleven colors, sized XS-L. It’s a mid-lightweight knit that easily layers over or under things without adding bulk.

Navy with burgundy is quickly becoming a favorite color combo this fall, so I added this pure cashmere scarf. They’re both cool, mid to deep-intensity colors, and together, they create a low contrast.

I’ve always loved the slimming look of bootcut jeans, so I’m glad to find them plentiful this season. These Hudson Bootcut jeans have a nice high rise and about a 30″ inseam, which is perfect for me with a low bootie. Bootcut is a universally flattering shape that helps balance wider hips or shoulders.

CASHMERE CREWNECK / KUT FROM THE KLOTH JEANS sold out, SIMILAR HERE  / HOOP EARRINGSDR SCHOLL’S BOOTIE / CASHMERE SCARF

Here’s the same cashmere sweater, this time in Mallard. How could I pass on this color? I’m wearing it with a pair of Kut From The Kloth straight-leg jeans that sold out in a flash. That’s the thing about the Nordstrom Rack… if you see something you like, you need to jump on it because things go quickly! Here’s a similar pair with a slimmer leg.

I’ve been a fan of John Hardy’s jewelry for many years and was happy to find these sterling silver hoops. John is a Canadian artist and designer who was inspired by the jewelry-making traditions in Bali. He creates artisan, handmade pieces with a unique look and rich history. His things can be pricey, so finding them at 50% off is always a treat.

360 CASHMERE CREWNECK / SIMILAR JEANS / FLAT BOOTIES

Here’s the same cashmere sweater in Sheepskin, which I would describe as a cool beige. I’m wearing a medium here, which is very roomy, so I think they run generously. If you love cashmere as much as I do, Nordstrom Rack has a large selection you can shop here.

A reader asked which booties are best to wear with ankle-length jeans. My favorite is a short shootie. What’s a shootie, you ask? It’s a very short boot that ends at or below your ankle. Many have a split shaft which I like because they make my feet look smaller by breaking up the length with a flash of ankle.

MORE SHOOTIES

Nordstrom Rack offers free standard shipping on orders over $89 or you can get your order shipped to a Nordstrom Rack or Nordstrom location for free. They also have easy returns to any Nordstrom Rack or Nordstrom location! It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on their daily flash events here, which have extra special discounts.

Do you wear shooties?

Thanks for reading, and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
