Fall is finally here in the northeast, and I’m having fun making new outfit combinations and updating old favorites. Today I’ve rounded up 25 of my favorite casual fall outfits for your style inspiration!
Most of these looks are easy to copy or adapt with items you already own, and of course, you can always add elements or swap out pieces to make these simple looks suit your personal style.
My lifestyle is pretty casual, so that’s reflected in these outfits, but most of these looks can be adapted for the work place or dressed up for date night by swapping the jeans for pants and wearing a dressier shoe.
I did my best to link similar styles for the items that have sold out, but the idea here is to shop your closet, so hopefully it’s not too frustrating when you can’t purchase the exact pieces.
25 Fall Outfits to Copy Right Now
#1. This is basically my fall date night uniform: A great pair of jeans, upscale blouse or sweater, heels, and an edgy jacket. I love this leather bomber; I feel like it’s a little more fresh than the leather moto jackets I’ve always gravitated to.
#2. For a more casual vibe that’s still elevated, a luxe fisherman sweater with bootcut blue jeans and lug sole booties is topped off with a preppy green quilted vest. To bring it down a notch, swap out the bootcut jeans and lug sole boots for straight leg jeans and Chelsea boots or sneakers.
#3. This is a variation on the outfit above. This time I wore a brown vest over the same sweater with ankle-length flares, and clogs.
#4. And then to bring it down to a more casual level, I swapped out the cashmere sweater for a waffle tee, and I wore straight leg jeans with field sneakers. I like how this vest has a more casual, rugged vibe to complement the thermal tee and sneakers.
#5. It doesn’t get more basic than a cozy sweater, jeans, and sneakers, but I like the proportions of this outfit and the overall minimalistic vibe. It’s simple, but it works. I love the monochrome color palette, but you can also do this with a bold or bright color sweater, and of course any color denim.
#6. Stripes are trending big time this fall, and I am absolutely in LOVE with this Rails cardigan. It pairs perfectly with black denim. I also found a similar version for less at Gap Factory, so I’m showing both looks below.
#7. This is my go-to edgy-chic date night uniform. I wore this to a Phil Phillips concert a few weeks ago. Black leather jacket, black top or sweater, a great pair of jeans in a current style, and boots. It could use bolder jewelry, depending on the venue.
#8. This is one of those casual, yet elevated looks that I love. I combined light wash straight leg jeans with several shades of brown. This outfit (minus the boots and bag) is all from Gap Factory, so it’s very affordable. Use code GFFRIEND for an additional 10% off these already amazing prices!
#9. Here’s another classic yet modern look from Gap Factory, with a pair of brown corduroy flares.
#10. I love the mix of dressy and casual elements in this neutral outfit. I combined an ivory silk blouse with bootcut bluejeans, and then I added neutral heels and a statement necklace to level up the look. The beige trench is the perfect topper for this classy look, and I love the addition of the olive leather handbag.
#11. We’re bringing it down a notch or two here. I love the way the wide leg jeans and clogs update the classic utility jacket outfit, and I made sure to add a brown belt and bag to match my shoes.
#12. And for a more casual alternative to the utility jacket outfit, this time I wore a black tee with straight ankle jeans and court sneakers.
#13. While a third piece always elevates your look, I often keep it simple. This waffle blend henley top has enough style points to stand alone. (The v-neck and button placket is a lot more interesting than a waffle-knit crewneck tee, for example, which I almost always wear under a puffer vest or lightweight jacket.)
I paired it with straight ankle jeans and field sneakers, and I added a belt to make it look more complete.
#14. This is another simple two-piece outfit that I wear a lot in different configurations: a luxe oatmeal sweater with light wash jeans in a current silhouette, and taupe clogs or booties.
#15. When in doubt, I love to put together an all-black outfit. The key is to mix different textures to keep it from looking too flat, and then be sure to accessorize appropriately for the occasion. The luxe knit, coated denim, and suede booties all work together beautifully in this edgy-luxe look.
Plus, the oversized black sunglasses, chain link hoop earrings, and layered necklace add essential style points to make it look even more intentional.
#16. I didn’t include many dresses in this roundup because I don’t wear casual dresses all that often, but this is a look I’d like to explore more, and this dress is fully stocked and available in black and olive green. It is featured in this post with black ankle boots, and I also like it with sneakers for a weekend-ready look.
#17. This outfit is from last fall, but it is one that I repeat often, in various iterations. Sometimes I wear my black leather bomber rather than the coated denim jacket, but this is more comfortable for travel. The black belt and black and white leather sneakers pull it all together.
#18. This is another look from last fall, and one of the only non-denim outfits in this post. I love the juxtaposition of the luxe cashmere and the edgy leather moto. The black pants and booties keep it classy, but you could also do black or dark wash blue jeans, for a more casual vibe.
#19. These are the same pants, dressed down with a denim jacket and sneakers. The camel scarf adds another fun detail to the look, but you really don’t need it. In fact, if it’s cold enough for a cashmere scarf, I will probably be wearing boots and a coat, not sneakers and a denim jacket.
#20. A brown denim jacket is a nice addition to a fall wardrobe, and it pairs well with black or blue jeans. Here are two ways I styled mine last fall. You can swap the chunky wood platform sandals for clogs or booties, or even sneakers.
brown jacket (option) (option) // graphic t-shirts // beige tank // black straight jeans // black ankle flares (option) // sneakers // brown platform sandals (clog option) // brown belt // brown handbag
#21. It’s very much on trend at the moment to wear an oversized v-neck cardigan as more of a pullover. I gave this one a front-tuck into bootcut bluejeans, for a casual date night look, but I wish I’d added a belt for a more complete outfit.
#22. This is one of my favorite outfits from last spring, but you could totally wear it in the fall. The stripe tee with blue jeans and beige trench is giving off those enviable French girl vibes… an expression that I realize is painfully cliché and should never be uttered again, but I could not resist!
SIDE NOTE: These jeans are too long. I do not recommend this length; I didn’t have time to shorten them before this photo shoot.
#23. The fair isle sweater is a classic style that’s having a major moment right now, and this was one of my most popular looks last fall. You could totally dress it down with straight leg jeans and more of a wintry boot, but for some reason, I like it with the bootcut jeans and Western-inspired booties.
#24. This is another variation on the leather jacket, luxe sweater, bluejeans and boots outfit formula that I love.
Unfortunately, I can’t link this exact bag, which is such a nice addition to this neutral outfit, but my friend Lindsey just launched a new line of handbags and accessories called Capital Z, and her You Can Have It All Tote would be perfect with this.
#25. This is the oldest outfit in this post, hearkening all the way back to the fall of 2020… but I still love it and would wear it right now. I might opt for my leather bomber for more of a modern, oversized fit, and I’d wear straight ankle jeans rather than the skinnies, but otherwise, I would put this on and wear it today.
And that’s a wrap! I hope these fall outfit ideas help you expand your closet and get more wear out of what you already have.
