My Style Challenge: A Fall Staple

IFB members were recently asked "What is your fall uniform?" and it got me wondering! I'm notoriously bad at loosing my fashionable senses once it gets cold out, opting for comfy and neutral knit pants and squishy sweaters! It's hard to manage bulky layers, especially when adding a winter coat to the mix!! So perhaps I should depend on a wardrobe staple for fall to jolt me awake on dark frigid mornings: my new red corduroys!!

A bright cord is perfect to immediately add interest to your look while still staying warm and cozy! Just try to refrain from pairing with a black top - hello immediate trip back to snooze-ville! I decided to add extra punch to my look by pairing the red pants with a pink scarf.
I'm wearing: Red cords from J. Crew, stripe waffle knit top from Bluefly, green Elizabeth & James jacket from my sister from TJ Maxx, BP scarf from Nordstrom, BCBG nude heels, black Belle Noel ring.
I obviously need to buy more in different colors, so I'm not wearing this pair every week! Hmm, should I get violet, yellow or green next?? What do you think your go-to wardrobe item will be this fall?

Great color cords. I need one in my closet.

Hmmm, my go to fall wardrobe is a blazer, dress, and tights.
