There are a number of staple wardrobe items that every woman should always have in her closet… a nude pair of heels that you can walk all night in, a trench coat that can be worn throughout every season, and a white collared shirt that goes with everything.

But just because these classic fashion staples should be at the base of your wardrobe doesn’t mean they have to be basic or boring. In fact, investing in just the opposite — traditional pieces with an updated, personal flair — is how you work your personal style into even the most classic of outfits.

With that in mind, here are five updated classics that we are loving for fall, pulled from our favorite designer collections on Mytheresa

1. Embellished white button-up shirt by Brunello Cucinelli

Speaking of a classic white collared shirt that goes with everything, we absolutely adore this updated piece by Brunello Cucinelli that has a sharp collar and long sleeves for timeless appeal, but also features a hand-applied subtle monili beading that runs along the button-stand for a hint of texture. You can wear it slightly undone and tucked into a skirt on a night out, like in the outfit above, or it makes the perfect chic base for in-office style.

2. Leisure Alessio midi skirt by Max Mara

We’re ready to add this burnt orange satin skirt into our autumn wardrobe ASAP. The flawless, traditional A-line style features a design that sits high on the waist with a ribbed waistband, which then drapes into a subtle flute — making it ultra flattering and the perfect piece to tuck a white dress shirt or chunky black turtle neck into. Pair this updated color with rich jewel tones for a luxurious, Instagram-worthy aesthetic. 

3. Boudoir belt bag by Christian Louboutin

In our last blog post, we talked all about how animal prints were one of our favorite trends for fall 2019, and a chic designer bag is one of our go-to ways to add this bold print into our everyday looks. This Boudoir belt bag features the same sleek, streamlined design that Christian Louboutin is known for, but the added belt style and the scarlet leather lining is a perfect way to update the accessory this season. Fasten this leopard style over suits, dresses, and skirts alike.

4. Block-heeled suede Marmont mules by Gucci

Fringed footwear, especially when it’s Gucci, is always in our favor — no matter the season. But these inky-blue suede Marmont mules have become one of our favorite takes on one of the brand’s classic looks. Their decadent color features the iconic burnished GG emblem detailing, which is set on the front straps, along deep blue fringe. Pair these bold mules with your autumn mustards and golds for a gorgeous color-block look.

5. Chain hoop earrings by Paco Rabanne

Complete any fall look with these statement-making chain hoop earrings, which play on the classic gold hoop style that go with just about everything. These reimagined bold, chunky links are a perfect face framer, and make a great final touch to any autumn or winter look.
