While you can’t go wrong with the classic fall uniform of a slouchy sweater and wear-everywhere boots, lately we’ve spotted some totally ingenious fall layering that make wardrobe staples look like cutting-edge couture. Bonus: You probably already have most of the pieces in your closet.

Belt Over a Coat

Another way to spice up an otherwise classic topper: Swap out the matching waist tie for a contrasting belt (or add one to any coat). Instant street-style cred.

Dress Over a Skirt

OK, this one’s trickier, but it looks amazing when done right. Layer a midi skirt under a shirtdress of the same length and then keep the buttons open from the waist down for a cool two-tone effect. 

Get the look: ModCloth dress ($80) and skirt ($55)

Dress Over Pants

Yep, this late-’90s combo is back, but with updated silhouettes (flared jeans, billowy dresses), it feels completely modern.

Get the look: Mother jeans ($228); ASOS dress ($46)

Cropped Tank Over Long-Sleeved Tee

Wearing a tank under a sweater is so last fall. This inside-out look lets you show off a favorite sleeveless top while still keeping warm (and looking très chic while you’re at it). 

Get the look: French Connection tank ($35); BCBG tee ($198)
