These 9 cute fall outfits will keep you warm and looking adorable

The time has come to stow away your summer wardrobe and make space for your cold weather clothes. Sweater weather is here to stay for the rest of the year. But that doesn’t mean you have to stick with the standard earth tone cardigan and jeans look for autumn. This year’s fall fashion trends are far from the regular autumnal wear. The season’s “it” pieces are fun and vibrant; there are sure to be a few that you’ll want to try! Here are nine outfit ideas to incorporate into your wardrobe this fall.

Cold weather dresses

Just because it’s a little chillier doesn’t mean you have to hang up your dresses for the year. Knit dresses make for the perfect cold-weather look that will keep you warm and looking amazing. Choose a maxi-length skirt and long sleeves, or pair a sleeveless knit dress with a cute leather jacket.

Artisanal craftsmanship

One of the biggest trends of the year is the handcrafted look. Patchwork patterns, crocheted pieces, and quilted textures all offer a unique and artsy vibe, thanks to the handmade look of the designs. Try wearing a quilted patchwork coat over your favorite graphic tee with loose-fitting jeans or trousers for fall.

Totally Clueless

Audiences have been in love with the film Clueless, and the fashions it featured, since it first came out in 1995. This fall is no different, with many retro-inspired pieces gaining popularity. Recreate Cher and Dionne’s most iconic look: the plaid blazer with a matching mini skirt. Add a little bit of a punk twist to this classic look by wearing chunky boots with it.

Casually autumnal

Whether you’re running errands or spending a chill day out with friends, this casual style offers the perfect mix of comfort and style. Throw on your coziest baggy jeans with your favorite t-shirt or hoodie. Layer on one of the season’s comfiest trends, the shirt jacket (aka shacket). For an autumnal vibe, look for a corduroy shacket or one with a plaid pattern.


The monochromatic look is always in style. You can choose a vibrant color like Kelly green or millennial pink or play it safe with neutrals like beige and brown. With a bold-colored matching set, keep the rest of your outfit simple so your bright pieces can make a statement.

Groovy 70s

The 1970s are making a comeback this season, too. There are so many ways you can have fun with this decade of style! Embrace the disco era with bell-bottom pants, a cute halter top, and a long wrap coat or trench with fur trim. Or incorporate one or two 70s-inspired pieces with your regular wardrobe. You can wear clogs, layer on a fringe coat, or look for funky vintage patterns.

Sherpa style

Fuzzy, faux fur coats have been in style for a few years, but this season’s designs tend toward unique colors and fun patterns. Make your Sherpa coat the star with an animal print design or bold hue. You can also play with other trends, like two-tone denim or patterned turtlenecks, to layer under your jacket.

Modern preppy

Prep style is slowly but surely headed for a revival. Wear a sweater vest with a plain or argyle pattern over a regular button-up blouse. On the bottom, wear a tennis skirt or pleated mini. To keep your legs warm, consider wearing tights or knee-high socks. And don’t forget to accessorize!

Elevated casual

Blazers aren’t just business wear anymore; they’re quickly becoming a crucial piece of any capsule wardrobe. When you’re not at work, you can wear your favorite blazer like a jacket. Layer it over a hoodie. Pair the blazer with bike shorts on a warmer day and joggers or jeans in colder weather.

You can create so many cute fall outfits with the year’s biggest trends. From casual styles to retro looks, there are endless ways to have fun with your wardrobe this season. Try out a statement jacket, pieces with unique patterns, or movie-inspired ensembles. And don’t shy away from bold pieces in everyday and dressy looks. No matter where you are going or what you’re doing, you can stay cozy and look fabulous this autumn with these nine trendy outfit ideas.

Sweatpants were once reserved only for lounging around the house or sleeping. But thanks to the growing popularity of athleisure wear and our work from home pandemic year, this is no longer the case. Sweats and joggers now have a place in everyday fashion. With the right outfit and accessories, you can dress up your sweatpants to go almost anywhere from the grocery store to the office. So how can you transform your sweats from PJs to stylish wardrobe staples? Keep reading to discover nine tips for how to look good in sweatpants.

Choose fitted sweatpants, not baggy ones
If you want to dress up your sweats, the first step is to choose the right pair to wear out. Baggy, fleece sweatpants might be cozy to wear around the house, but they can make you look schlubby when you wear them out. Choose a pair of joggers that are tapered around the ankle or sweatpants that are fitted around the waist and thighs.
Dress up your joggers with heels or boots
Sneakers and joggers are a match made in heaven. But, if you’re trying to make your sweatpants look dressier, wear them with heels or ankle boots instead. These shoes will instantly elevate your outfit and make you look fashionable no matter the occasion.
Treat them like jeans
Think of your sweatpants like your favorite pair of casual jeans; you can pair them with almost any top. Wear them with a cute sweater, button-down shirt, or simple tank top. This styling method works best with black, beige, or other neutral-colored sweatpants so you can let your top draw most of the attention.
