Staples for your fall outfits & my waist-defining t-shirt hack!

School is officially back in session and that means fall is right around the corner! I've been on the hunt for the best staples for fall outfits that can transition from the school pick up line, to running errands, and even to high school football games to watch the teenagers in our neighborhood play (Friday night lights, anyone?!). Kohl's is my one stop shop for some of my very most favorite brands at insane prices!

Finding FLATTERING closet staples can be tricky…enter: the tuck. I know you might be thinking, “Wait, didn't we leave that trend in the 80's?” Trust me, it's back! And this tip will create the most instant waist-defining silhouette in a blink. Keep reading for the pieces I picked up to get fall ready and how to style them!

Staple white tee & the tucked-in trend

This Levi's t-shirt was such a great find! I love how versatile it is and how it can be mixed and matched so many different ways. It would look SO cute paired with a skirt, too! It's the perfect timeless basic and is such a steal at only $14.70.

How to style it and get a waist at the same time!

Are you tucking your shirt in? Here's the thing, I haven't tucked my shirt in for YEARS, but the newer trend of fully tucking in your shirt is actually super flattering and seriously SO cute!

This classic Levi's shirt was the perfect basic to test this trend out. And I hear you if you're saying “this is not going to flatter me,” but I PROMISE, tucking in a basic t-shirt creates an immediate defined waist on so many different body types and it elevates a casual look! You immediately look more put together while still being super comfy. Check out my reel today on Instagram to see just how flattering tucking in your shirt can be!

Straight leg jeans

These straight leg jeans have AMAZING reviews and for good reason! They and are the perfect amount of high-waisted, which is totally perfect for tucking in your shirt.

Not ready to ditch your skinny jeans just yet? Me neither. BUT this pair is the perfect way to try out a trend of a very reputable brand and at an affordable price point.

Super flattering cropped jacket

This jacket is just the right amount of boxy! It's kind of that happy medium between cropped and full length hitting the most perfect spot so it doesn't cut you off at a weird unflattering place. This khaki color is perfect for fall outfits. I know this will be the perfect throw-on-and-go fall layer!

Also, how good is that raw hem?!

I can't think of a more classic and comfortable pair of throw-on-and-go sneakers than these Converse! This staple black color works great with black jeans and is also perfect with leggings.

They add the perfect amount of edge to any outfit, while also letting you chase your littles around comfortably (I know I'm not the only mama who tries to check this box off while shoe shopping)! These sneakers are a tried and true favorite that I'll be reaching for all fall long!
