Fall is in the air — the leaves are turning red, the air is crisp, and it’s time to swap your shorts for sweaters.

No matter your age or body type, there are some fall staples that every woman should have in her closet.

If you’re looking to revamp your wardrobe this fall, these classic fall fashions will have you looking stylish at any age.

Cozy Sweater

You can’t go wrong with a cozy sweater once the season changes. A chic cardigan or cashmere sweater can look great with slacks for work, while chunkier knit sweaters are the perfect comfy top to wear to the pumpkin patch.

Plaid Everything

Plaid is one of the tried-and-true staples of fall women’s fashion. From form-fitting button-up flannels to plaid scarves, these timeless classics are cornerstones of fall fashion for women of every age.

Never Enough Scarves

Stay cozy and add flair to your fall outfit with a chunky scarf. A warm knit infinity scarf layered with a sweater will keep you warm and looking fabulous.

Riding Boots (No Horse Necessary)

Knee-length black or brown riding boots are timeless fall footwear for women of all ages. These pair great with straight or skinny jeans, and many styles are available in a wide-calf option.

Dark Jeans

Whether you love skinny jeans or boot cut, black or dark-wash jeans with no whiskering effects are flattering on every body type. Put on a pair to go out for drinks after work or to meet friends for coffee, dark jeans are always an essential.

Pro Tip: Get a Tailor

When you reach your 50s or above, finding stylish clothes that fit your body perfectly can become harder. A tailor can alter your clothes so you don’t have to pass up that chic top because it’s not the right fit.

If the execution works this way, we can list specific pieces/trends that are appropriate for all ages, and then a suggestion on how to execute that trend at each age (20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond).
