Quick Style Tips: Closet Staples You Should Add to Your Wardrobe this Fall

Fall is fast approaching! Warm up your wardrobe this season with must-have closet staples from Buffalo Exchange!

Maxi Skirts

The most popular silhouette of 2022 continues to be a closet staple through 2023. Style them up or down with a blouse and vintage lace-up boots or a graphic tee and your favorite pair Doc Martens!

Transitioning from the romantic rosettes we wore this summer, neckties are a great accessory (and overlooked closet staple!) to add to your wardrobe this fall. Aesthetically, we’re throwing it back to 2002 with an edgy-interpretation of business wear inspired by Avril Lavigne’s ‘Sk8ter Boy’ era.

Continuing the business wear trend, this overlooked closet staple is back in a big way! Suits are a great, timeless addition to any wardrobe, and much like maxi skirts, can be dressed up or down depending on their cut and material. In 2023, this classic look has come back around with cropped jackets, bermuda shorts made out of suiting materials and oversized silhouettes.

Leather Jackets

Leather jackets have been a top closet staple for decades, thanks to their wearability and wide variety of cuts. Versatile and easy to style with just about anything, we recommend topping your leather jacket with a minimalist outfit this fall for a look that screams quiet luxury.
