We all want to step out each morning feeling stylish, polished and professional. Oftentimes, though, that is much easier said than done, especially as changing seasons signal the need for an updated wardrobe. Today, we’re taking the pain out of styling by pulling together a few looks that can act as inspiration for formulating a festive fall ensemble. From casual outing attire to formal wear, this guide to fall fashion caters to the lazy girl in all of us. So sit back, relax, and enjoy some style inspiration. Here is the lazy girl’s guide to fall fashion!
FALL FASHION FOR A CASUAL OUTING
When dressing for any type of casual outing, from a lunch with the girls to a family visit to the pumpkin patch, it’s far too easy to get stuck wearing the same comfortable outfit time and time again. Here, we show you how to spice it up a bit by adding a few easy-to-style options that make you look fashion-forward and chic with minimal effort. During this season, we suggest snagging yourself a high-quality, everyday tee that can be worn with a number of bottoms and is easily layered. To dress it up a bit, we’re nodding to the season’s scarf trend by adding an autumn-inspired scarf. Tie this around your neck, in your hair or through the handle of your handbag for a subtle and simple statement. With regard to accessories, we’re loving on-trend mid-sized hoops and comfortable mules for the transitional season. And finally, complete the look with a pair of dark wash jeans and a tan or brown oversized sweater.
FALL FASHION FOR A NIGHT OUT
For your evenings out on the town, we’ve pulled together a few basic items to create two complete looks. First, we’re styling a simple white long-sleeve top with a festive red wrap skirt, ultra fashionable tan coat, black pumps and a fun crossbody bag. This is a fantastic option for a girls’ night out, fall celebration or a date night. To create our second look, simply swap the wrap skirt for a pair of wide-leg or flare jeans (the denim style of the season!) and keep the rest of the outfit as is. This is equally as stylish and sophisticated for those of us who prefer denim over a skirt or dress. We suggest rocking a bold, red lip with this jean outfit for a necessary pop of color. Our favorite aspect of these pieces, specifically, is that they can be worn with so many different looks — never underestimate the styling power of a few basics!
FALL FASHION FOR YOUR FORMAL FESTIVITIES
And for any of your formal affairs, we’re playing around with fall’s fun color scheme this year. Here, we’ve included a festive wrap dress that flatters any body type and a tied jumpsuit that basically defines “effortlessly chic” style. We’re pairing either of these with a cropped blazer, which you’ll be seeing everywhere this season, a wine-colored crossbody bag, strappy metallic heels and a gold layered coin necklace. All of these accessories are major trends of the season as deep purples and reds, metallics and layered jewels add touches of festive glam to any outfit.
And there you have it — a few fall outfits for wherever the season takes you! We hope you can find inspiration in our pairings and mold them to fit your own personal style. Or, make it easy on yourself and shop these complete looks to take on fall fashionably. Either way, you’ll be thankful for the addition of a few fresh and festive pieces to your wardrobe.
