Fall is one of the best seasons for all kinds of looks. It’s a time of year that is perfect for meshing together aspects of all seasonal wear: dresses, sweaters, shorts, skirts, boots, and so much more. Here is some inspiration for all the fall looks based on your plans! Just click on the Pinterest links for some ideas. 

Work – Styling Skirts, Dresses, Shorts, and Slacks

Just because your work may not be super fun, doesn’t mean your look can’t be!

Dresses and skirts can easily be fall-friendly. Thinner, long-sleeved dresses paired with stockings, boots, and your go-to accessories are always a good pairing. It’s also a way to still keep some bright summer colors in your look like this look

Short skirts can also be styled similarly like this look when pairing them with a sweater and some booties. However, a nice sleek office look can come from any midi-length skirt with dark and neutral tones. 

Another great office look would be pairing a sweater with a button-down, slacks, and flats. If your workplace allows shorts, pairing them with a blazer is another fashion-forward look.

Casual Day – Styling Sweaters, Leggings, Jeans, Shorts, and Layering 

Whether you’re running errands, meeting a friend for coffee, or spending the day with family, these casual looks are not only cute – but super comfy!

A staple in fall fashion is oversized or long sweaters, but they are more iconically paired with leggings and cute boots. This look is simple, easy to assemble, and almost comfortable enough to sleep in – unless you pair it with heels. 

Cardigans are also a fall must-have and can be dressed down with a pair of jeans, some sneakers, a tank top, or a plain tee. You can also choose a lighter cardigan that isn’t a sweater-like material. Alternatively, you can always opt for a flannel

Another stylish look for the warmer fall days includes shorts paired with oversized sweaters. More commonly over the years, biker shorts have risen from the 80s and make a perfect casual fall look!

Date Night/Girls Night Out – Styling Skirts & Dresses

When summer weather goes away, it can be a little harder to find the perfect season-appropriate outfit for a dinner with your partner or a night out on the town with your best friends.

One of the best ways to look sleek yet fun in the fall is a mini skirt and over-the-knee boot combo. While you won’t be too cold, you can still show some skin and look adorable doing it! The combination looks great with long sleeves, short sleeves, or sweaters! This look can also be paired with subtle neutrals or more fun patterns like plaid

Must-Have Accessories – Styling Purses, Hats, Scarves, and Flannels

When styling any fall outfit, you may want to swap out the typical summer accessories like flip-flops or beach bags for more seasonal options.
When it comes to purses, more neutral tones will likely complement your outfits better. Go-to colors include gray, dark brown, beige, or black. Large hats are rising in the fashion world, but there are still classics such as beanies. While this next item may not be solely an accessory, a flannel tied around the waist is a fun and stylish substitute for a belt! Chunky scarves are also a classic look, and even better when they’re plaid or flannel material.
