How To Layer Clothes For Fall: 5 Way-Cute Outfits You'll Want To Try Right Now!
by Nikki Ogunnaike, Glamour Magazine
I love fall weather, but lately I've had some trouble putting together cute outfits that will take me from a 60-degree morning to a 75-degree afternoon and then to a 55-degree night. Jacket? No jacket? Is it too early for tights? Should I retire the open-toe shoes? Ugh! Thankfully, I've found some outfits ideas that involve layering that I think should do the trick.
A blazer over a belted cardigan over a button-front shirt will provide enough warmth, but I can always take off the top layer if I get too hot.

I know how most of y'all feel about tights and shorts, but hey, I like 'em together, so I'll probably copy this outfit in the next couple of months. Bonus points for the grandpa cardigan and knee-high moto boots.

Blair's look could come in very handy at the office. The chambray button-front shirt works with an A-line skirt and leopard sweater on casual Friday.
I was on my way to retiring my faux fur vest, but this girl has inspired me to keep it. Looks super comfy over an open denim shirt and striped sweater.
So maybe I don't have to get rid of my open-toe shoes just yet. When worn with sheer tights (which are the perfect weight for brisk fall weather) under a maxi skirt they seem to work. And again with the fur vest! I know which piece will be in heavy rotation.
So what do you, ladies? Will you wear any of these outfit ideas in your everyday life? What are your fail-safe looks for fall weather? Discuss!
