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.

Get the look: Chelsea28 turtleneck ($49); American Eagle Outfitters overalls ($68); Furla crossbody ($298); Halogen loafers ($100)

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.

Get the look: Old Navy sweater ($20); Jason Wu skirt ($238); Anthropologie bag ($98); Cupcakes and Cashmere shoes ($91)

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. 

Get the look: Blank NYC jacket ($98); Stradivarius T-shirt ($18); Vince Camuto pants ($89); Loeffler Randall sandals ($295)

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.

Get the look: Zimmermann dress ($695); Patagonia fanny pack ($29); Tibi boots ($486)

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. 

Get the look: Topshop blazer ($110); Eileen Fisher T-shirt ($108); 7 For All Mankind jeans ($199); Steve Madden boots ($130)

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.

Get the look: Boohoo jacket ($18); Ann Taylor top ($70); Chelsea28 pants ($89); Prada boots ($850)

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. 

Get the look: ASOS blazer ($87) and pants ($22); Cami NYC top ($158); Staud bag ($395); Botkier heels ($138)

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.  

Get the look: Lucky Brand jacket ($99); Reclaimed Vintage T-shirt ($32); BOSS skirt ($595); Jeffery Campbell shoes ($135)

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.

Get the look: Stella + Ruby earrings ($56); Weekday sweater ($28); Good American jeans ($179); Everlane boots ($225)

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.

Get the look: Banana Republic hat ($38); Stand jacket ($1,095); L.F.Markey jumpsuit ($220); Longchamp sneakers ($445)

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. 

Get the look: Free People jacket ($98) and jeans ($70); Everlane shirt ($65); Tory Burch heels ($378)
