Fashion has really shifted to being comfort-focused for 2020. The key trend pieces this year feel like pj's and easily transition from work to play with ease.

Fashion and lifestyle expert Natalie Sexton shares some styles that are trending this fall that you can add to your wardrobe without breaking the bank.

The key is to create a base with great staple pieces like lightweight knits, cotton blends, leggings, sweaters, and tees that can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways. Putting a new seasonal wardrobe together can take a bit of time, but you don't need to get everything all at once!

TREND #1: Knit Dresses & Sweatshirt Dresses

Dresses can be super comfy, so choose dresses that you feel effortless in. No shapewear or sucking in or strapless bra required! Dresses are in one word "easy."

Instead of picking out and physically putting on multiple items, literally just throw one piece on and you’re done. It looks like you’ve put in an incredible amount of time and effort into your outfit.

TREND #2; Fuzzy Sweaters & Dressy Joggers

A great option to still be comfy, especially sitting at a desk for long periods of time. Look for warm neutrals like khaki and details like drawstring waist or paper bag waist which is also very on-trend this season.

Cotton and jersey knits are lightweight and breathable. There is something to be said about getting dressed and ready every morning, even if your work or studies are at home. It sets the tone for your day and helps create a routine and good habits to being productive & successful.

TREND #3: The Cardigan

The Cardigan is the must-have sweater of 2020, for many reasons! These are cozier than blazers, while still being a bit more elevated than a hoodie, allowing you to comfortably sit between casual and dressy!

They come in a range of colors and materials, so you're taken care of whether you prefer pattern, lightweight ribbing, or a wool knit. It's usually thick enough to take the place of a light jacket for the first couple months of Fall.
