No season feels more like a fresh start than fall. Maybe it's all the new clothes in stores or memories of heading back to school, but suddenly you want to take a long, hard look at your closet. Before you go crazy and decide you need to buy all the latest trendy pieces, take a step back and reassess your wardrobe. The smartest upgrade comes in the form of refreshing your basics in favor of new staples.
Is that wool coat on its last legs? Trade it in for a sleek camel topper from Uniqlo or a crisp white wrap style from Mango — both look far more expensive than they are. Need a new white shirt that goes with everything? COS has a longer tunic style that pairs nicely with jeans or trousers. From boots to bags to lingerie, click ahead to see the best new basics of the season.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
