Fall fashion inspiration: Outfit ideas we love
Layer it on
A cozy, oversized cardi lets you to keep your pretty summer dresses in play as the leaves start to turn. Add boots or oxfords and thick tights, and this look will easily see you through Thanksgiving.
Bold prints give borrowed-from-the-boys style a feminine update. If a full-on suit feels like too much, try a schoolboy blazer with a cheeky printed lining, then add an oversized topcoat for frosty autumn nights.
Go mad for plaid
Grunge is back in a big way, and plaid workwear-inspired pieces are popping up everywhere. We love the way this woman works her layers. Hint: Skinny jeans or a pencil skirt will balance out oversized top pieces.
Transition your summery whites into statement-making fall outfits by mixing in heavier fabrics and textures. Try a pair of high-waisted leather (or faux leather) white pants with a white tee and a snuggly white cardi for a fashion-forward effect.
Summery colors like hot pink and neon green make transitioning into fall feel downright fun. If the idea of wearing two loud colors at once makes you shudder, stick to a neutral palette and add one eye-popping statement piece.
Nothing says “fall fashion” like a slouchy cashmere pullover and the perfect pair of skinny jeans. Dress the look up with an impeccable pair of pumps, or go full-on comfort-mode with a pair of moto-inspired boots.

A flattering sheath dress is always in style. For a seasonal update, it’s all about the color (teal and plum are your best bets this fall). For chilly mornings and evenings, throw on a structured trench for a seriously uptown effect.
If the thought of packing away your summer dresses makes you sigh wistfully—don’t. Give your sky-high summer minis a new lease on life by pairing them with leggings or skinnies.

Leather and lace is more than a great Stevie Nicks song—it’s one of our favorite fall trends. A streetwise leather jacket takes the saccharine edge off a girly lace dress. Accessorize with tough boots and cozy knits to complete the look.
Take your look from drab to fab with a lightweight trapeze coat in an eye-catching print. Black-and-white is big this season, and the timeless silhouette of a trapeze coat flatters every figure.
