As the weather changes from summer to fall, so too should your outfits. It's time to push your shorts and summer dresses to the back of your closet and pull out your fall clothes.
To spark your style inspiration, we've rounded up nineteen cute fall outfits for women below that you will absolutely adore.
19 Must Try Fall Outfits for Women
Basic layering pieces are the foundation of any good fall wardrobe. Stock up on a few transitional essentials at the start of the season so you can make the most of other pieces in your closet. A basic turtleneck and a pair of tights will maximize your outfit options as temperatures start to drop. Use these layering essentials to take advantage of lightweight jackets early in the season, and save heavier puffers and wool coats for closer to winter.
Oversized Sweater and Leather Leggings
Fall fashion means cozy sweaters; for some, that means oversized sweaters. Balance out an oversized sweater with sleek leather leggings styled with black leather boots that'll help elongate your legs. It's the perfect fall outfit to show off a fun handbag or unexpected accessory— perhaps something with a bright pop of color like this season's 'Barbiecore' hot pink.
Knit Midi Dress and Boots
A knit midi dress plus boots equal an adaptable fall outfit that can do it all. With a few simple styling changes, it can be casual, professional, and everything in between. Throw on a blazer for the office, a denim jacket for brunch, or a leather moto jacket for a happy hour date.
Maxi Dress and Sandals
Enjoy every last second of the open-toe season by pairing your summer sandals with a fall-weather-friendly maxi dress. It's the perfect way to say goodbye to your favorite pairs until spring rolls around. Add a denim jacket or trench coat to complete your transitional fall outfit.
White Tee and Trousers
A classic white tee makes the perfect companion to this fall's loose, low-slung trousers. Tucked in, it strikes the same balance of casual and professional. Regarding styling, lean into Tik Tok's 'coastal grandma aesthetic' with chunky loafers, oversized fisherman cardigans, and woven handbags.
Oversized Blazer and Body-Con Dress
Create shape underneath an oversized blazer or outerwear piece with a slinky body-con dress. A pair of smoothing tights underneath will boost your confidence and add a touch of warmth. Slip on a pair of pointed-toe kitten heels for a day at the office or high-heeled boots for a night out. Cinch your waist with a wide leather belt to create even more of an hourglass shape.
Matching Sweatsuit and Sneakers
A matching sweatsuit assures you look put-together, even at your most casual. You'll feel stylish and comfortable while running errands, walking the dog, or working from home. Complete your casual fall outfit with conversation-starting sneakers and a slick bun. It's a super cute, super comfortable look that won't have you embarrassed to be seen in public.
Maxi Slip Dress and Leather Jacket
What's the biggest street style trend to emerge this fall season? Pairing lingerie-inspired slip dresses with grungy leather jackets. The contrast between the traditionally feminine and masculine styles makes it the perfect outfit for a date or girl's night out. Though this season's runways were filled with ultra-sexy lace and sheer chiffon options, a classic max-length satin slip will never lead you astray.
White Tank Top Under Oversized Cardigan
White tank tops are all the rage right now. Gen Z It-Girls like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Beiber, and Kaia Gerber prefer to wear theirs with low-slung trousers, baggy jeans, and cargo pants. Slip on an oversized cardigan for added warmth, and let it slip off your shoulder to show off your collection of gold necklaces, chains, and charms.
Cropped Sweater and High-Rise Jeans
When in doubt, throw on your favorite pair of high-rise jeans and a cropped cardigan or sweater. The combination shows off your hourglass shape without revealing too much skin. Plus, it can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. Add ankle booties, a beanie for brunch with the girls, hoops, and strappy heels for a fall date night.
Sweater Top and Yoga Pants
If there's one thing the pandemic taught us, it's that wearing stretch pants is nothing to be ashamed of. Style your yoga pants and leggings with an sweater top or sweatshirt for errand runs and casual hangouts. A sling bag, sneakers, and wrap sunglasses give your fall outfit a fashionably sporty feel. Throw on a windbreaker or puffer jacket when the temperatures drop.
Monochrome Button-Up Shirt and Pants
A monochrome color palette instantly makes any outfit feel a bit more chic. Sticking to a single color from head to toe— accessories included, if you dare— elevates even the most basic button-ups and work pants in your wardrobe. As any fashionable New Yorker can attest, the easiest place to start is an all-black look.
Shearling Jacket and Knitted Dress
Transition your summer dresses into fall by pairing your knitted dress with a plush shearling or suede jacket and boots. For extra warmth, try knee-high boots. You'll stay cozy during your chilly morning commute without overheating in the afternoon. Plus, the play on textured feels incredibly sophisticated. Throw on a fitted turtleneck or a pair of tights to transition your sundresses even further into fall.
Fitted Turtleneck and Baggy Jeans
ICYMI, skinny jeans are on the decline. For the first time in over a decade, straight-leg and baggy jeans account for the majority of denim sales in the US. Balance out this fall's loose, low-slung jeans with a fitted layering turtleneck or second-skin bodysuit. Wearing something ultra-fitted on top helps define your shape. Plus, it offers the perfect backdrop for statement jewelry and hats.
Timeless Suit and Graphic Tee
Support your favorite sports team or show off your excellent taste in music by modernizing a timeless suit with a casual graphic tee. Styled with pointed-toe pumps or white leather sneakers, you'll look effortlessly put-together on your next casual Friday. Scrutinize your graphic tee or boxy t-shirt of choice before leaving the house to ensure it's 100% office appropriate. That's one fashion faux pas you certainly don't want to make!
Knitted Dress With Sandals
For warmer fall days, try a simple knitted dress or sweater dress. You'll enjoy the cozy feeling of a sweater without overheating in the afternoon sun while still hanging on to a piece of summer with sandals. When the weather gets cooler, swap your sandal with your favorite boots.
Sweater Dress and Over-the-Knee Boots
Over-the-knee boots are one of the biggest shoe trends for fall 2022. Try showing yours off (and stay warm in the process) with a cozy sweater dress. Whether it's a sexy rib-knit mini dress or a slouchy oversized sweater, you'll look exceptionally stylish. Accessorize liberally to show off the latest additions to your jewelry collection. A great pair of earrings or a chunky statement necklace will take your look to the next level.
Denim Skirt With A Long Sleeve Top
Cute denim skirts aren't just for the summer. Whether your favorite denim skirt is navy blue or white, they can also make a great addition to your fall outfits. The long sleeve top will keep you warm, while the denim skirt will keep you looking fashionable. Also, try it with a cozy sweater or polo sweater for extra warmth. Complete the look with boots or flats.
Mini Skirt With Thigh High Boots
Show your sexy legs this fall with mini skirts and pair them with thigh-high boots. The thigh-high boots will help elongate your legs and can help add some height to your look. As a bonus, they will keep your legs warm while you look fabulous in the cool weather.
Turtleneck Sweater With Jean Shorts and Boots
Fall can be a confusing time. It can get pretty toasty during the day and chilly when the sun goes down, so it can be hard to dress appropriately. If you plan to be out and about all day, this turtle sweater with jean shorts and boots may just be the perfect combo. It got all the fall elements while still letting you hang on to that piece of summer. And when the weather gets cold, layer it with a cozy tall cardigan or jacket. For extra warmth, try this outfit with thigh-high boots.
