Our team recently discovered that we all love to come back again and again to trusted items to snag additional colors before they sell out. Today, we’re sharing 10 staple pieces for the coming months — light layers and accessories you’ll want in every color!

Z Supply ribbed tank
A good layering tank is a must, and this ribbed scoop-neck option from Z Supply ($39) is just the ticket. This tank is 95% breathable cotton with 5% spandex for just the right amount of structure and stretch, perfect for wearing alone on warmer fall days or layered under sweaters, light jackets, and blazers through the cooler months.
Available in nine colors!
James Perse crew neck tee
Crew neck tees are a dime a dozen, but one with a flattering fit is harder to come by. This slightly sheer slub cotton tee by James Perse ($90) is a wildly popular choice, for good reason. The fabric is dyed with extra softeners to create that effortless “lived-in” look we all want, but the relaxed fit still hugs your shoulders just right.
Available in 13 colors!
Pomander Place high-collar blouse
Transitional weather calls for versatile pieces that can anchor your look on their own or take a backseat to warmer layers when temperatures drop. You’ll get LOADS of compliments on this high-collar blouse available on Tuckernuck ($98). It looks chic tucked, untucked, and layered under jackets. (There’s also a similar long-sleeve version available for $168!)
Five options available — two striped and three solid!
Ravella silk blouse
This silk blouse was featured in our recent article on classic fall wardrobe pieces, and it warrants another mention here, as it’s available in 10 shades, from neutrals like the ‘Prosecco Gold’ shade pictured here to jewel tones like ‘Mulberry Purple’ and ‘Riviera Blue — available from Ravella for $275.
Available in 10 colors!
Everlane’s classic flannel
A good classic flannel top is a workhorse piece for fall and winter, great for everything from game days to running errands to lounging around the house. Many of Everlane’s beloved basics, including this flannel, are available in multiple colors. Stock up now while they’re marked down to $74 (originally $98).
Six options available — two plaid, one striped, and three solid!
Klassy Network bodysuit with built-in bra
The “brami” designs from Klassy Network are a game changer. The line ranges from tanks and tops to bodysuits, all complete with high-quality built-in bra padding for smooth, comfortable wear. Their long-sleeved “bramisuits” are great for fall and winter, and we especially like this u-shaped option ($48) that can easily be dressed up or down.
Available in four colors!
We recently officially welcomed the return of the ballet flat, but we cannot stress the comfort of Rothy’s flats enough! These classic flats ($129) are great if you need to be on your feet all day while still looking polished, and the color options are practically endless — they come in a wide variety of solids and prints.
Available in 28 colors!
Lele Sadoughi faux leather baseball cap
Another trend we highlighted earlier this season is the faux leather ballcap (see how we styled it HERE). These caps are the perfect way to elevate an otherwise casual outfit or add a hint of sophisticated edge to more polished looks. Find it in brown at Bloomingdale’s and black at Neiman Marcus (both $85).
Available in both black and brown, so you’re set for the season!
Reformation shoulder bag
We bet you’re seeing crescent-shaped and half-moon shoulder bags all over the place at the moment! This version from Reformation ($248) is available in a variety of colors ranging from neutrals to metallics to the patent leather crocodile design pictured here. Its petite size is perfect for tossing over your shoulder but large enough for the essentials.
Available in eight colors!
A warm scarf is a perennial “must” for the fall and winter months, and we love this bouclé style from Anthropologie ($48) featuring ribbed detailing and exaggerated stitching around the edges. It’s large enough to wrap once or twice around your neck or to drape over your shoulders like a wrap.
Available in five colors!
