Date-night classics

Sometimes the best outfits are the simplest. This quintessential fall date-night outfit is a favorite because it comprises comfortable pieces we’re all familiar with.

  1. Look for pretty details like ruffles or delicate stitching to make an otherwise simple sweater feel special.
  2. Skip your standard pair of skinny jeans in favor of wide-leg jeans to give your outfit movement and dimension.
  3. Add asymmetrical booties and a vintage-inspired bag for a charming finish.

Bold workwear layers

To nail fall dressing, one must learn the art of layering. Below, we’re showing you how to balance textures and colors like a pro.

  1. Start with fitted blazer made from a thicker material like tweed or corduroy and layer it with a silky blouse.
  2. Use a print to bring the complementary colors together, like we did with these plaid pants.
  3. Keep accessories neutral to prevent the outfit from getting too busy.

Chic weekend basics

What do you wear for fall days that consist of crisp mornings, warm afternoons, and chilly evenings? If you guessed layers, you’re correct.

  1. Modernize your ensemble with a sweater tank and a sleek leather jacket. This cozy combo can easily be adjusted depending on the weather.
  2. Choose slim-cut denim to elongate your legs, and go for a dark wash to add richness to your color palette.
  3. Finish the look with a structured shoulder bag and stark white booties for an unexpected pop.
