7 Genius Fall Uniforms That Take All the Guesswork Out of Getting Dressed
You’ve done the whole “jumping on every trend and obsessing about what you’re going to wear every single day” thing. And now you’re ready to embrace an easy, stylish and true-to-you uniform. We tapped seven PureWow Coterie members for their favorite no-brainer clothing combos. Watch and learn.
Jeans + Jean Jacket + Button-Down
Think of Ijeoma Kola’s ensemble as an elevated, fall-appropriate take on jeans and a T-shirt. The button-down and low slingbacks dress up the denim while still maintaining a sense of effortless cool.
Sweater + Leather Leggings + Ankle Boots
The great debate: Can you wear leggings as pants? We (and Coco Bassey) say you absolutely can. Two things to keep in mind: First, it’s way easier to dress up a faux-leather pair than the kind you can wear to the gym. Secondly, opt for a fancy-ish shoe, like a loafer or block-heel ankle boot.
Jeans + Sweater + Trench
Noticing a theme here? This fall we’re all about adding chic and sophisticated twists to our favorite dressed-down pieces. There’s certainly nothing wrong with jeans and a sweater, but, as Olivia Jeanette so stylishly proves, the addition of a classic, wear-forever trench takes it to the next level.
Sweatshirt + Wide-Leg Trousers
A sweatshirt worn with jeans or track pants can read a little pajama, but a sweatshirt with luxe trousers—especially in velvet, à la Monroe Steele—is a fun, high-low contrast you should absolutely recreate. Note that this generally looks best with a heel (even a super-low one).
Sweater Dress + Belt Bag + Moto Jacket
A cozy sweater dress is a fall classic. This season, make like Sommar Theodore and spice up the silhouette by cinching your waist with a belt bag and carrying a moto jacket to throw over your shoulders in the event of a dip in temperature.
Black Top + Cropped Black Pants + Camel Jacket
An all-black outfit is the ultimate in easy dressing. To keep it from feeling boring, top it off with a rotation of fun and different coats and jackets. For casual excursions, wear a camel coat like Grace Atwood’s with slip-on sneakers; in dressier settings, swap them out for your go-to pumps.
