As consumers, finding the right wardrobe balance of classic pieces and trendy accents can be tough. So many trends will look obviously outdated after a season or two that even if you love them, it can be hard to justify spending the big bucks on something that will look old almost immediately. That’s why Fall 2012 is so major – so many of the big runway trends are things that a well-stocked wardrobe should have anyway, all the way from knee-high boots to a good black bag.

Classics becoming “trendy” means that it’s a perfect time to stock up – trust me, you’ll never have so many options for knee-high riding boots as you will this fall – you can actually feel good about shopping because so much of what’s in stores will be wearable for a long time. We teamed up with our friends at Bloomingdale’s to scout out some of the best Classic Trends for the season. Check out our picks after the jump!
