Nine Casual Fall Outfits to Copy and Try

9-casual-fall-outfits-to-try

Hallelujah!  It is FINALLY starting to feel like fall in north Texas.  My husband hauled my crate full of fall clothes out of storage for me and I’ve started my quarterly closet cleanse to decide what stays, what goes and what needs to be replaced or updated.

Pulling a past season’s clothing out makes me a wee bit nostalgic.  I start thinking about ways that I’ve paired up those pieces into outfits and where I wore them the previous year.  It’s a fashionable trip down memory lane!

Today, I’m showing you nine of my favorite fall outfits from years past featuring pieces that I’ll be wearing again this year.  I’d love it if you would copy them and try them yourself.  If you do, be sure to snap a selfie and tag me on Instagram.

1.  Boyfriend Cardigan + T-Shirt + Plaid Scarf + Ankle Jeans + Colorful Flats

What I Love About This Outfit:  The teal shoes are just the right pop of color and I love how they complement the mustard yellow in the cardigan.  The plaid scarf ties it all together.

2.  Tunic Sweater + Leather Look Leggings + Leopard Flats

Leather and Leopard Casual Full 2 [Sweater: Similar/Leggings: Same/Flats: Similar]

What I Love About This Outfit: Besides being the ultimate in comfort, it features one of my favorite combos – cobalt blue and leopard.  The leather look leggings add just the right amount of trendy edge.

3.  Striped T-shirt + Quilted Vest + Leopard Scarf + Black Jeans + Riding Boots

What I Love About This Outfit: Everything!  The stripes, the leopard, the quilted vest, the riding boots.  This is one of my go-to favorite outfit combos for everything from fall festivals to football games.

4.  Lightweight Sweater + Plaid Vest + Skinny Jeans + Cowboy Boots

What I Love About This Outfit: This is my first pair of cowboy boots I’ve ever owned and now I try to wear them as much as possible.  The plaid puffer vest is perfect for cool days in Texas that aren’t yet cold enough for a winter coat.

5.  Striped T-shirt + Polka Dot Scarf + Wrap + Black Jeans + Riding Boots

Black and Beige Outfit Full [Wrap: Similar/T-Shirt: Similar/Scarf: Similar/ Jeans: Similar/Boots: Similar]

What I Love About This Outfit: This wrap is one of my favorite ways to add a layer of warmth to my outfits.  I love the neutrals in this outfit and the pattern play.

6.  Yellow T-shirt + Boyfriend Cardigan + Floral Scarf + White Jeans + Riding Boots

Fall White Denim Full [Cardigan: Similar/Shirt: Similar/Scarf: Similar/Jeans: Same/Boots: Same]

What I Love About This Outfit: White jeans after Labor Day are a-ok.  Mustard yellow paired with fall floral in the scarf make this look totally fall appropriate.

7.  Layered Sweater + Coated Jeans + Printed Scarf + Ankle Boots

What I Love About This Outfit: These coated jeans add a little bit of edge to the look.  Plum is great paired with light gray and a scarf to tie it all together.

8.  Lightweight Sweater + Blazer + Boyfriend Jeans + Oxfords

Navy Blazer Boyfriend Jeans Oxfords [Blazer: Similar/Sweater: Similar/Jeans: Same/Oxfords: Similar]

What I Love About This Outfit: Borrowed from the boys, this menswear inspired look features light layering with a t-shirt under a lightweight v-neck sweater topped off with a navy blazer.  It’s finished off with a pair of boyfriend jeans and oxfords.

9.  Striped T-shirt + Printed Scarf + Black Jeans + Leopard Flats

Striped Top Black Jeans Full [Shirt: Similar/Scarf: Similar/Jeans: Same/Flats: Same]

What I Love About This Outfit: The fabulous fall scarf is the star of the show.  This outfit is great for warmer fall days when a top layer is not necessary.

My Fall Shopping Wish List

Although I’m pretty happy with the state of my closet right now, there are a few things I’d like to pick up.  Here are some of the things on my fall shopping wish list.

Old Navy

This open front wool blend poncho comes in four different colors but I’m kind of partial to red.  It looks great layered with a chambray button down under it.

Nordstrom

[Gold Flats]

These arrived last week and it was love at first wear.  They are seriously the comfiest flats I’ve ever owned.  Gold will go with everything this fall.

Loft

[Medallion Blouse]

The right blouse can be a game changer.  Every woman needs several printed blouses to be her go-to’s for anything from date night to Thanksgiving dinner.  Pair this one up with jeans, dress pants or a skirt to instantly make an outfit.

[Flare Jeans]

If you’re not on it yet, then it’s time to hop on the flared jeans bandwagon.  They’re back in a big way this fall.  Pair them with a slight heel for mile long legs.

[Fall Stone Necklace]

This pretty harvest hued necklace makes a great substitution for a fall scarf.  It perfectly ties together the colors in your autumn outfits.

  • Great styles Alison and very simple to duplicate! I need to pick up a pair of faux leather leggings and some coated jeans and I will be set too(: Susan

    • Happy shopping, Susan!

  • kathy

    You are so pretty and always so put together. I always enjoy seeing your style.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words Kathy!

  • I love tall brown boots! Although brown riding boots are not on trend this season, I can’t seems to let them go. You look so cute in your white denim!

    Happy Medley

    • I’m sure you’d look wonderful in the tall brown boots!

  • All great ideas for fall looks, I’m really loving the leather leggings outfit! The leggings are a bit edgy and the bold blue looks amazing on you! Have a great day Alison:)

    • Thank you Marta! Happy Wednesday!

  • I really like the way you put outfits together. Although I’ll not try all of the looks as they are, they are very adaptable (regular leggings for the faux leather, colored denim for the coated, etc). I still need to haul my sweaters out of the attic. Still pretty warm here. At least I’ve put away sandals and linen! Trying to look fall without sweating to death! More colored denim is on my list! You converted me last year. Now I need to add to my colors. Wine or plum is at the top!

    • Wine or plum colored top would be perfect Sheila. Let me know if you need help finding one!

  • Robin

    I was wondering about the faux leather leggings being appropriate and now that question is answered! They look so great with a tunic sweater. I still lack most of these pieces, but after 5 challenges, putting together an outfit is SO MUCH EASIER!!

    • Can’t wait to see it on you Robin!

  • I absolutely adore these looks! Thank you for sharing!! Have a wonderful day!

    So cute!!! Is outfit 9 supposed to have leopard flats or leather flats? It says leopard but the link takes you to leather flats and the pic looks kind of like the cognac leather flats but I can’t tell for sure… Thanks!

  • Sue

    Oh Alison!! Could you please do a mini challenge with all these pieces?!!! I love them all.

  • I love your outfit ideas. they inspired me for some of my own so thanks for that 🙂
