Autumn is the perfect time to upgrade your outfit choices and transform your appearance. After all, this season brings with it the cool winds that make going out and dressing up more fun, particularly for those who are into style.
As the colors of the leaves turn a gorgeous gold or scarlet, the annual changes that make fall fashion stand out every year arrive. If you haven’t settled on your fall wardrobe just yet, here are some great outfit ideas that can help get you started.
1. Baggy Sweaters with Skinny Jeans
Ever since Ariana Grande started going out dressed in oversized sweaters, these fashion items have made a comeback and become extremely popular. Paired with black tights or skinny jeans, they can easily be transformed from huge and baggy to downright adorable. Throw in some thigh-high boots, and you’ve got a great fall outfit.
2. Leather Jacket
Leather just adds an extra oomph to any outfit, and fall is perhaps the lone season when a leather jacket can easily be pulled off. The weather is cold enough to warrant wearing it while it keeps the wearer comfortable. Leather pants are another great article of clothing suitable for autumn, although you may want to avoid wearing an all-leather ensemble on the same day.
3. Leather Boots up to the Knee
If leather jackets and pants aren’t your thing, then go for knee-high leather boots. They look great with dresses or belted jackets and make an immediate statement. Check out this article for more style ideas.
4. The Backward Cardigan
Cardigans have been around for ages, but they’ve recently been reinvented to become great pieces of contemporary fashion. The latest trend involves wearing them backward, and this can be done with practically any cardigan style. Go for those that have decorative trimmings or gorgeous buttons to add some style to the back of your outfit.
5. Trench Coat Dress
If you’ve got a classic trench coat hanging in your closet, why not give it a little shake and wear it out as a dress for the day? Pair it with elegant heels, a well-coiffed hairstyle, and some red on your lips, and you’ve put together a sophisticated outfit that looks great in the warm autumn colors.
6. The Blazer Tuck
Oversized blazers with big shoulders are trendy this season, and fashionable people have started wearing them tucked in. This gives a cool-looking silhouette that fits well with fall fashion. Want to get rid of the bunching around the waist? Try crossing one side of the oversized blazer over to the other side at the waist to cinch up the shape.
7. Skirt Layered over Trousers
Flowing long skirts layered over trousers is one of this season’s hottest trends and one that’s fairly easy to achieve. Start by putting on a simple pair of slouchy trousers. Pick out a midlength skirt made out of a fluid fabric, and wear that over the trousers. This creates a languid, graceful look. Complete the outfit by throwing on a blazer, and you’re ready to make the world your autumn runway.
8. Dark Floral Dresses
You don’t have to leave floral dresses in the spring, especially when they’re the dark-colored kind. These dresses transition over to autumn quite well. They are a great way to interject some femininity into your fall outfit—just make sure you’re covered enough to protect you from the colder winds that may blow.
9. Puffed Sleeves
Puffed sleeves range from the long-sleeved really big puffs to dainty little mushrooms that round out at the shoulders. Whatever puff-sleeve style you prefer is perfect for autumn—that is, if you go by what the fashion industry deems as one of the trends of the season.
If you’re not too keen on changing your entire style for fall, then start with switching up how you wear your knits to a more unconventional way. Additionally, wearing layers with a standout accessory can help elevate an otherwise-basic fall ensemble. There are many other ways to put together exceptional outfits for fall.
While you’re eager to rock your fall outfit, do remember to make a closet purge to avoid hoarding too many clothes. You may choose to donate them or sell them online. You can use the profit you get from selling them to update your current wardrobe! And you already know I’m big on Poshmark – it’s one of my favorite apps so that’s always a solid option.
