The changing seasons can be daunting for a variety of reasons. Whether it means a return to school or a new job, the need for the appropriate wardrobe staples is undeniable—and finding them shouldn’t be an added stressor. When it comes acquiring the right pieces to stock or add to your fall closet, we would like to urge quality over quantity. Find a few really great pieces that are versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down, worn with a jacket and without.

The key to achieving an affordable seasonal closet is not buying handfuls of inexpensive items that won’t last through the season, but investing in a few pieces that can be worn on a daily basis and in various combinations.

For model Lauren Chan, the pieces that offer the most versatility this fall season are ones that you might not normally consider for your casual fall closet. In line with recent high-fashion trends, she is bringing businesswear to the streets and making it chic.

Her fall staples consist of a classic vest (fit for wearing with wide-leg slacks or a pair of denim), a black pair of cargo-inspired slacks, an oversized blazer and a mini skort. In a Sept. 25 Instagram reel, Chan debuted a series of outfits featuring these various pieces in different combinations. Though the items themselves are relatively simple, they are chic, and their appeal, in part, comes from their ability to function in a variety of looks.

As you make fall and winter purchases, use Chan as your guide and seek out pieces that can be worn on a daily basis in multiple ways and with various accessories.
