Take into consideration these suggestions for fall outfits to help you transition between seasons.
1. Invest in the ideal outerwear for the season:
The most important part of your fall wardrobe is versatile outerwear like denim jackets, plaid flannel shirts, cashmere cardigans, trench coats, and leather jackets. Choose something light enough to slip into a handbag or wrap it around your waist for an easy match. Take advantage of this opportunity to experiment with fashion trends because your fall coat doesn’t have to be as warm as your winter coat.
2. Find the ideal boots for fall:
To signal the arrival of winter, switch out your sandals for boots and ankle boots when the weather turns colder. Sundresses and denim skirts can be worn with combat boots, knee-high heels, or suede ankle boots for a fall-ready ensemble.
3. For work, dress up a little:
After a summer of more casual attire, the fall is the ideal time to return to suits and other essentials for workwear to ease the transition.
4. Wear it with summer attire:
With a little layering, most of your summer clothes can be worn in the fall. Try pairing a crop top with high-waisted jeans and a cardigan with a slip dress over a black turtleneck and leggings. You can keep warm by layering a short-sleeved or long-sleeved top over almost any summer dress, depending on where you live. Layering a tank top over a long cardigan or oversized button-down shirt is a great look.
5. Wear summer clothes with winter ones:
The cozy winter staples of turtlenecks, shearling jackets, and corduroy pants are best worn in the fall. To avoid overheating, wear warm-season bottoms like Bermuda shorts and midi skirts with cool-season tops like oversized blazers and chunky knits, and vice versa. (Please try silk camisoles and wool pants.)
6. Put on cotton clothing:
Cotton is a fabric that is frequently used for fall clothing and is one of the most dependable in the textile industry. Cotton fabrics like flannel, corduroy, and denim can be too heavy in the summer and dry too slowly in the wet winter and spring, but they are great for dry, windy autumn days. Straight-leg or skinny jeans keep the wind out (which is useful in colder weather).
7. Choose Bright Colors:
While the idea that you must color your wardrobe for the season is out of date, fall colors look great with trees. Use a color like a pecan pie or a burnt orange. Choose hues that energize you. Consider incorporating lighter shades and darker neutrals for the fall season if you’ve been wearing bright colors all summer to beat the heat.
8. Playing with Patterns and Prints:
Patterns like leopard print and plaid are especially fun to play with in the fall. You’ll layer more than you did in spring, but a big winter coat won’t hide your looks. Denim and leather, two neutral staples, can enhance your patterned ensemble. For instance, if you wear black military boots, denim or leather jacket, and feminine, summery floral prints in the fall, you can upcycle the look.
