8 Basic Fall Items Celebs Wear That Are Still Cool in 2019

Celebrities are known for stepping out in the latest, most fashion-forward fits both on and off the red carpet. You may recall Rihanna's neutral dress-and-heels ensemble recently? Enough said. Well, while this elite set will certainly never shy away from going all out in the latest finds, they're also perfectly comfortable with turning up in the classics as well—especially during fall.

That's right, A-listers embrace the basics just like us. In fact, while seemingly "standard," many of the autumnal basic items It women like Hailey Bieber and Victoria Beckham love are actually quite cool and forward in 2019. These classic pieces like trench coats and cardigans truly act as the anchor to bring trend-setting outfits to life. To see what we mean, we curated a range of the eight basic items celebrities wear on repeat now—and will for years to come. And naturally, we shopped out our favorites in each category if you're also looking to refresh the basics in your closet.

While always considered a wardrobe classic, the checked blazer (gray in particular) has held its own as a fashion-forward staple for the last few years among the celeb crowd. For good reason—it adds sophisticated polish to even the most casual of looks.

2. Trench Coat

A trench is one of the most versatile and timeless pieces you can have in your fall arsenal. Try one with leggings and booties like Beckham's ensemble for your off-duty life, with trousers and a blouse for work, and so on. The options are endless.

3. Turtleneck Sweater

As one of the ultimate layering essentials for a chill vibe, hoodies look just as on-trend layered under a statement blazer with jeans like Beiber is showcasing here as it does with joggers and a bomber jacket.

5. Black Boots

WHO: Jasmine Tookes

If you were to name one of the top fall shoe styles, a pair of black boots would probably come to mind first. Celebs are all about flat styles or silhouettes with just a slight heel to add a downtown twist to their fall ensembles.

6. Cardigan

The lightweight cardigan reigned supreme this summer, but as Roberts is proving here, chunkier styles will still always remain a classic for a layered look.

7. Moto Jacket

Similar to the trench coat, a moto jacket is another one of those outerwear essentials that will always remain cool. Find the style that fits you like a glove and you'll wear forever.

Okay, black boots are clearly one of the top fall shoe picks, but knee-high boots are just as much of a staple to elevate and bring sophistication to any autumn vibe.
