Cupshe’s Fall Wardrobe MVPs

MVP #1: The Surprisingly Versatile Sweater

Nothing makes us more excited for cooler weather than the perfect fall sweater. We’re partial to soft, slouchy knits that can be easily layered and travel well. These styles layer perfectly over tees and camis for those in-between-seasons moments. You know, the ones when it’s chilly in the morning and evening but blazing when the sun’s out? Yep, those.

This essential fall piece goes with everything and never feels boring. Our most popular styles have unique twists, like lace-up details or cute tassels. Colorblocked, cable knit, rainbow-colored or with fringe, you need one in your closet.

MVP #2: The Effortless Long-Sleeve Top

Is there anything you wear more than a long-sleeve top? We’d guess no. Every fall wardrobe needs one. These beauties are the unsung heroes of the closet, so stock up for the season with both essentials (think: simple) and date-night (major fashion details) styles.

Classic long-sleeve tops like t-shirts, waffle knits, and lightweight sweatshirts are perfect for pairing with jackets and vests because they’re bulk-free but still warm. On the other end of the spectrum, it’s all about eye-catching accents and cutouts that add drama to an otherwise standard silhouette. We’re into the cold-shoulder look for a big night out or a midriff-baring crop top that complements the proportions of a curve-hugging skirt for a romantic evening on the town.

MVP #3: The Figure-Flaunting Sweater Dress

You're likely to wear sweaters and a dresses at some point this season. This is almost certainly a fact. So why not rock them both at once and reap ALL the benefits? A sweater dress is like that Gemini in your life: it has two totally different qualities--like flip sides of a coin--combined into a single garment. On the one hand, it’s cozy and comfortable with a soft knit that envelops you in a light layer of warmth. On the other hand, it’s stretchy and clings in all the right places, creating a subtly sexy outfit in just one step.

The ultimate one-and-done fall outfit, it’s versatile too. Wear it for daytime with a jacket and a pair of knee-high boots or go full-on feminine by teaming it with your hottest pair of stilettos.

MVP #4: The Easy-Does-It Hoodie

Please see Exhibit A: the hoodie, the cool cousin of the crewneck sweatshirt, renowned for its athleisure background and ability to make any outfit a bit more chill. This veritable workhorse of a top is a casual necessity for weekend lounging--and for covering up a bad hair day. But in addition to its usual partners--track pants, jeans, and cutoffs--hoodies also add an offhanded carefree feel to skirt and dress pairings. Think of it like opposites that attract: the girly-girl charm of a skirt or dress needs the streetwear appeal and touch of edginess to balance it out.

Plus, hoodies are the perfect choice for throwing on over a bathing suit if you’re going for that surfer-girl look at the beach. (And let’s be honest: who isn’t?)

MVP #5: The Free-Spirited Maxi Dress

Please forgive us for getting caught up in the boho vibes of our maxi dresses for a moment. Every time we take a twirl, we’re bewitched by the billowing fabric and swirling prints. We’re going to spread the magic by letting you in on a style secret: you should step into the fall season with an ankle-grazing frock.

Why? Because the maxi dress is the perfect piece for easing into the season. They’re light enough to wear when the weather’s still warm and can be layered when the temperature takes a dip. Pair your maxi dress with ankle booties or knee-high boots for the ultimate fall look.

And a final word to bathing suit fanatics everywhere.
