If I could only dress for one season, I would always and forever choose fall. As much as I love the sun, what I love even more are jeans and layers and boots and sweaters.
Since we can all use a few new outfit ideas, I’ve put together seven of my favorite looks for fall. And BONUS! many items are recent purchases and not crazy-expensive. Everything that is currently available is linked in the sources. Use this as a great shopping list for basics and layering pieces, or maybe a few outfits will spark some ideas of how you can mix items you already have in your closet.
I’m pretty sure this will be my most worn outfit of the fall. The soft tee is the perfect layering piece (I like that it is longer than a normal tee) and the sweater is the coziest thing ever. It’s a little more expensive than I would normally go for (I bought it on sale at the Nordstrom Sale) but I’m starting to limit my purchases to classic, quality items I can wear season after season. This cardigan is one of them.
This is my first pair of toms wedges and I like them. Not too high, good color, mostly comfortable. Ryan bought me this fancy new watch for our anniversary. I wear it everyday.
None of these items are current, just fyi. But sometimes you can take older things from your closet and mix them up/layer them for a good wearable outfit. I’m all about a long tunic-y shirt under a sweater so a little can peek out. And you better believe I’m excited about bootcut, flare and wideleg jeans making a comeback.
I work at home. The temptation is to stay in my pj’s all day but I try to put on actual clothes every day. It makes me feel more put together and productive. However, I still want to be comfortable and not overly dressed-up, so stretch skinnies, a soft sweater and slippers is what you’ll often find me wearing. Still super comfy, but with a little more style than the leggings and tee I slept in.
This is another oh, so comfortable ensemble – leggings (thick and therefore non-see-through), a long tunic sweatshirt and the cutest buffalo check vest.
Here’s a view from behind – because I very much value some coverage back there and this sweatshirt does the trick. (Sidenote: did you read Jen Hatmaker’s chapter about leggings-as-pants in her new book? Hilarious.)
Wide leg jeans. I’m a fan. And also a thin sweater with this mid-weight jacket. At least once per week my hair ends up in a messy side bun (see my how-to video here) and I like that it shows off the popped collar of the jacket.
If you buy anything you’ve seen in these outfits, choose this sweatshirt. It’s so cute, fits slim and long, is lightweight and not bulky and did I mention it’s cute? So cute. My sister had it on while we were on vacation together this summer and I immediately knew I needed one, too. They come in a few different stripe combos and a camo version, too.
Do you have the iconic little black dress in your wardrobe? I did not until this cutie arrived. It fits great – not too snug, a good length, comfortable to move around it – and could be worn dressed down (as shown) or up with tights and heels and jewelry. I don’t wear a ton of everyday dresses, but this one might sway me.
So there they are, seven of my favorite totally wearable fall outfits. Do you have a favorite?
