Summer is officially over on Friday, and temperatures have already started to cool down. We’re getting a taste of nearly every girl’s favorite time of year: sweater weather season! A staple of every fall wardrobe is a cozy sweater that can be thrown over just about anything.
Sweater outfits don’t have to be monotonous; look for sweaters with texture and unique details, or pair them with unexpected pieces. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite fall sweater outfits and trends to help you stay cozy and stylish this season.
Keep it colorful.
The weather is gettomg darker and drabber, but that doesn’t mean your wardrobe should as well. Bright colors are a fresh alternative to the usual muted tones we see in fall.
Experiment with unexpected pairings.
Mix it up and try something besides the usual sweater + denim combination; experiment with pairing your staple sweaters with something unexpected! Wendy’s sweater and fringe skirt combination creates such a fun look, perfect for a night out!
Layer it up.
Add some depth to your sweater—layer it with a long sleeve dress shirt with a crisp collar and oversized cuffs.
Throw your biggest, coziest cardigan over your favorite jeans and tee for an “off-duty” look that will get you through those crisp fall days.
Put a blazer on it.
A plaid blazer may be the “it” item of fall. Top your favorite cable knit sweater with a slightly oversized plaid blazer for a preppy-chic look.
It’s all in the details.
Look for sweaters with unexpected details, like elbow patches, open backs, and appliques.
Don’t be afraid of texture.
Add some flair to your wardrobe! Basic knit and cable knit sweaters will always be classic, but have fun with different textures this season.
If you’re in need of some midi skirt styling tips, look no further than our favorite fashion bloggers! They’ll show you how to expertly wear this fall staple. One of our favorite secrets? Play with proportions. Choose fitted tops that accentuate your waistline or slouchy oversized pieces that can be tucked in.
Here are a few of our other go-to tips for styling a midi skirt.
Play up box pleats. There’s just something so feminine and flirty about box-pleated midi skirts. They have a vintage feel that makes them an instant hit! We love how this black and white top matches the two tones of this skirt.
Pair a plain white tee with a gingham midi skirt for a throwback style that feels fresh in 2017.
Recreate this sultry look by wearing a midi bodycon skirt with a lace top.
We love how Mary Orton of the blog Memorandum paired her ruffle shirt with this pleated skirt.
Can’t enough of the monotone trend? Neither can we! We’re in love with this olive green combination. To get this look, pair the same shade in contrasting textures.
As far as we’re concerned, there’s nothing more creative in fashion than layering multiple distinctive pieces together. This gingham sweetheart top looks great layered with a white t-shirt and tucked into a denim midi skirt.
It’s that time of year again. The mornings and evenings are getting cooler, but summer’s heat still lingers during the day. No matter the actual weather, something about the beginning of September has us itching to pull out our knits, booties, and coats. Dressing with light layers, muted tones, and key fall accessories will tide you over until its time to fully transition your closet from warm weather to cold.
Take a look at these 7 blogger outfits to inspire your summer-to-fall style!
WhoWhatWear editor Kristen knows that a blazer is the perfect topper during transitional weather. It provides lightweight coverage that a coat would be too heavy for.
Elifnaz, Belle Melange
Elifnaz’s outfit is perfect for early fall. A muted, long-sleeve floral blouse paired with a denim midi skirt and sneakers will keep you comfortable from morning to evening.
Samantha, Could I Have That?
I love Samantha’s refreshing way of layering two lightweight tops for a little extra coverage.
Julie, Orchid Grey
A good hat is the way to my heart, and with a cool breeze in the air, fall is the best time to break out your hat collection!
Olivia, What Olivia Did
Olivia’s silk burgundy dress is the perfect transition piece; the long sleeves and high neck add slightly more coverage for early fall days.
Swap out your breezy blouses for more structured, heavier ones. Statement sleeves like the ones on Paulien’s top are still on trend for this season!
Mary, Happily Grey
If all else fails, throw a lightweight bomber on it and call it a day!
After another hot and humid summer, we’re excited for the weather to finally cool down. Fall is here, and what do you do when the weather starts to get chilly? Warming your hands in front of the heater is one option, but our favorite is having a handful of outerwear pieces to get you through those brisk fall days.
Here are six key fall outerwear pieces you should pick up this fall!
1. With a classic olive green utility jacket and a scarf, you’re set for any and all fall outings this season.
2. Recreate this look with a suede biker jacket and a plain white t-shirt.
3. When the weather is colder than usual, slip into a long and cozy shearling jacket. Tone down the teddy-bear look by pairing it with some simple black clothing as your foundation.
4. Nothing says fall quite like a rust-colored cardigan!
5. Trench coats are always a classic fall staple. They’re universally flattering, come in a variety of patterns, and–best of all—can instantly elevate an outfit.
6. The best thing about bomber jackets is that they’re incredibly versatile and can be worn in any season. For your next brunch out with your gal pals, go casual in bomber jacket paired with your favorite skinny jeans.
