The Ultimate Gift Guide for Women Who Love a Functional, Effortless, Chic Wardrobe
Buying clothing for the women in your life can be tough. The easiest way to buy clothes for women is to buy something that will stream line their wardrobe which will reduce stress and the time it takes to get dressed. Consider closet staples. Items that can be easily be styled with other items they already own, or items that they can never have too many of such as quality denim or loungewear. This black Friday gift guide is perfect for those that are a fan of a functional, effortless, chic style.
Basic long-sleeve bodysuits are staple pieces that can be worn multiple times a week in the fall by itself if the weather is not too chilly and it can also be worn with an extra layer over top (long knit cardigan, leather jacket, denim jacket). The best colors for everyday wear are black, white, ivory, or grey. Additionally, you can go with a mock neck bodysuit that adds interest and looks even more elevated with layered dainty pendant necklaces.
A wardrobe essential that will stay in your closet from season to season is a checkered knit sweater. This style of sweater can be worn so many ways and is another great layering piece in a fall capsule wardrobe. It has a sophisticated and classy vibe which makes it perfect for work or for a dinner date.
Another great knit piece is a light weight split hem knit. This knit sweater is perfect for those days when it's not too cold but you also wear it towards the end of fall when it does get colder with a trench coat overtop.
Layered over a t-shirt, long-sleeve top, or dress, a knit cardigan is another wonderful piece for fall. We love the long Heather Grey Cardigan included in the capsule. A cardigan is one of those items you’ll live in during the fall season. At home and beyond, it’s a great throw-on-and-go fall wardrobe capsule piece.
The button-down shirt is a timeless piece that, regardless of your style, can still be incorporated into your wardrobe. The possibilities are endless with a button-down, making it one of our favorite versatile outfit pieces.
Go from lounge to luxe with a sleek and versatile bodysuit. Depending on your mood, bodysuits can either be the foundation of an outfit or the statement piece. They can be sexy or sporty and are able to be dressed up or dressed down.
A staple in any fall wardrobe is a classic pair of mom jeans. When you find the perfect pair, you will wear them multiple times a week. The Classic High Waist Mom Jeans in this capsule wardrobe is the perfect pair of plain mom jeans. Since they don’t have distressing they can be worn to work with a sweater or blazer for a business casual look.
A light pair of jeans can go a long way in the fall. They are prefect to pair with graphic tee's, classic white tees, or white bodysuits. Dress them down with sneakers and a leather jacket. Or, dress them up with a sleek pair of ankle boots and a cream knit sweater. The light color brightens up darker autumn tones and is very chic and versatile.
Sleek black leather pants are a great addition to fall wardrobe for their versatility and ability to be dressed up or down. They have a polished look that with the right top, footwear, and accessories, can take you from running errands to date night.
Black Leggings will never go out of style. They are super comfortable and easy to style! To be honest you can never have too many pairs of black legging. These black leggings may be different than any other black legging you own because they are nylon. They are extremely stretchy and comfortable and since they are made of a shiny stretchy nylon material so you will get the legging fit without the legging look!

Sweats are one of those pieces that is worn year around. Put a twist on the comfy trend by investing in a jogger set that is just as chic as they are soft. One the reasons we love jogger sets is all the different ways you can style them.

A crossbody purse that can be dressed up or down is another great staple in a functional wardrobe. When not running from place to place, opt for a smaller crossbody that can hold just the essentials. If you choose a more neutral pieces then a pop of color cross body bag such as this red heart bag will make even your simple outfits chic.
If you don’t like crossbody bags or if you like having many options then you will love these chic shoulder bags. The first one is a black pleated shoulder bag. A black bag is a closet staple but this black bag is pleated and rouched on the strap which makes it super chic. The second bag is the olive shoulder bag with the gold detailing on the strap. This bag is in a classic shape but the gold detailing and olive color makes it the perfect chic fall shoulder bag.
