12 Easy Fall Outfits You Should Add to Your Closet ASAP
Some days we have the time to leisurely browse through our closets, planning outfits in our head while sipping a nice cup of hot coffee. Other days we leap out of bed in a panic after hitting the snooze button too many times and find we barely have time to brush our teeth, let alone think about what to wear. Luckily, these 12 outfits were made for those ‘OMG I’m going to be *so* late’ kinda mornings. They’re easy, comfy and guaranteed to look fabulous, no matter what you’ve got on your agenda.
Slim-Fit Turtlenck + Overalls + Loafers
Yes, this childhood staple can look chic and professional. Swap the white turtleneck of your youth for a lightweight jewel-tone and round out your look with a ladylike handbag and no-nonsense loafers.
Oversize Sweater + Midi Skirt + Pointy-Toe Shoes
This monochrome moment is comfy, easy and appropriate for everything from parent-teacher conferences to date night. P.S. You could always swap the skirt for a midi dress to double your wardrobe and achieve the same overall effect.
Leather Jacket + Easy Tee + Printed Pants
A fun pattern, whether it’s trendy leopard spots or a moody floral, helps take the edge off a tough moto jacket. That means you’ll look less like a member of the T Birds and more like an off-duty model.
Sweater Dress + Tall Boots
Question: How do you make a shapeless oversize sweater look sleek and polished? Answer: Wear it with a pair of sexy, tall boots in a rich shade. We’re loving the combo of baby blue with mahogany leather or deep black suede.
Ankle-Grazing Dress + Sock Boots
We’re not quite ready to embrace tights just yet, but this cute pairing will keep our legs feeling warm through October. If you’re worried that the maxi length might look a tad too formal, try adding a sporty fanny pack (worn across your body, rather than at your hips) to keep things casual.
Plaid Blazer + Boyfriend Jeans + Ankle Boots
‘Tis the season for plaid, tartan and buffalo check. But the easiest way to wear the pattern of the season is when it’s splashed across a classic, oversize blazer. Keep the rest of your outfit extra simple with a plain tee, easy blue jeans and a pair of timeless black booties.
Corduroy Jacket + Plaid Pants + Chelsea Boots
Did we mention that now’s the time to embrace check prints? If you’re already sick and tired of your entire denim collection, try a pair of patterned pants. Give them room to shine with solid, neutral basics and an equally autumnal corduroy topper.
Plaid Suit + White Accessories
OK, this is our last mention of plaid, we promise. But when you’ve got a pattern as seasonally perfect as this one, you might as well go all out. Shake up your boring work wardrobe with a checkered suit. Don’t forget to accessorize with a pumpkin spice latte.
Denim Jacket + T-Shirt + Leather Skirt
We like to think of a jean jacket as the LBD of fall apparel. It goes with literally anything and everything in your wardrobe, but it looks particularly chic when worn with a leather skirt (pencil, A-line or otherwise). Plus, the addition of a classic white t-shirt tones down the innate sex appeal of leather.
Statement Earrings + Oversize Sweater + Skinny Jeans + Leather Boots
A giant knit and simple jeans have the potential to look pretty basic (read: boring). But sleek leather booties and over-the-top earrings are really all you need to make this easy ensemble feel both fresh and fashion-forward.
Boilersuit + Duster Jacket + Comfy Kicks
We love a good one-and-done jumpsuit, almost as much as we love the resurgence of geriatric supportive sneakers. Put the two trends together and you’ve got your new weekend uniform. (Bonus: It’s unbelievably cozy and comfy). Adding a sleek duster coat into the mix just makes everything feel a bit more pulled together.
Matching Denim + Classic Button-Down + Black Pumps
We don’t know about you, but when we think of fall, we can’t help but think of denim everything. Go all out and create your own denim suit by pairing a jacket and pants in the same wash (although we recommend choosing colored pieces to avoid looking like Justin Timberlake à la 2001). Keep the office-apparel vibe going with a crisp button-down and pointy-toe pumps.
