My Fall Outfit Ideas and Inspiration

Updated: Sep 8, 2019

You will be dressing differently at the start of the fall season as opposed to the middle and end of fall. The temperature slowly decreases, so as time passes you’ll slowly be wearing warmer sweaters, layering up, adding jackets, and pulling on some cozy scarves.

When the season transitions from summer to fall, you’ll want to wear light layers. While it is chillier in the morning, once the sun comes out it can warm up to the point that you are actually sweating. Layers allow you to adjust with varying daily temperatures, removing and adding as needed. As the weather gets chillier, just add more (or thicker) layers.

Colors: Basic neutrals always work in the fall, as do jewel tones. If you want to add some new colors to your wardrobe, Pantone released its 2019 Fall Color Trend palette online. It consists of 12 new colors, including a Chili Pepper Red, Peach Pink, Sugar Almond, Galaxy Blue, and Paloma Grey. Pantone’s seasonal color choices influence fashion designers around the world, so you shouldn’t have any problems finding new wardrobe additions for your fall outfits.

Materials: Fall calls for warmer clothes, hence different materials. For tops, stick with cotton or silk, as they both breathe and layer well. Sweaters made of good-quality cotton, wool, cashmere, or any blend of these will not only keep you warm and breathe, but they will stand the test of time. Pants should be made of a heavy cotton (including denim and corduroy) or wool, or a blend.

Texture: Fall is a good time to add texture to your wardrobe. The heavier fabrics that come into play allow for you to wear corduroy, brocade, tweed, ribbed turtlenecks and cable knit sweaters. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your textures for a stylish fall outfit.
