Dress like you’re going to meet your worst enemy today. —Coco Chanel
Fall is my absolute favorite season to dress for and find new looks to draw inspiration from. I’m not sure why.
Maybe it’s the season of neutral colors or maybe it’s the fun part of layering.
And if you’re like me and love fall fashion, keep reading!
To kick off this week, I thought I’d share some fall outfit inspiration with you! Not only that, I will also giving you some ideas on how you can style pieces you may already have in your wardrobe. And if you don’t, at least I can help you create a basics foundation list as you shop for the season. It’ll be a win-win for you either way!
(FAUX) LEATHER PANTS
Whether it’s real or faux, leather pants are a must when it comes to building your fall wardrobe. In this case, instead of going for the skinny style, try cropped with a bit of flare to change things up. That way, you can show off those new pumps you’ve just splurged on too!
I have a pair of black-coated denim that looks like faux skinny pants, but I’m just going to say something we’re all thinking. Sometimes, our legs want to breathe! Am I right or am I right?
EMBELLISHED MOTO JACKET
A moto jacket is a must for a strong fall wardrobe, but an embellished moto jacket is even better. This exact leather jacket from Nour Hammour has been on my wishlist for years!
I don’t know what it is about leather jackets, but it just makes me feel like a bada**. And I’m all about investing in pieces that not only make you look good on the outside, but make you feel good on the inside.
I don’t care what you say. Your confidence level partly depends on what you wear too!
You can get the usual stiletto or block boots, but the combat boot could elevate your fall outfit.
I like my outfits edgy with a bit of a feminine touch, but you can always do the opposite. If you’re gutsy enough, you can style combat boots to your all-black outfits that can also be feminine.
Think black turtleneck with a black moto jacket and a black maxi chiffon skirt with combat boots. Need a visual? Alessandra Ambrosio rocked this very look!
All-black outfits are fool-proof when you have those “I have nothing to wear” days.
However, chances are, when you’re constantly putting together all-black outfits, you might get a little bored from time to time. With an all black outfit, mix it up by adding a textured top.
Adding textures is a bit easier with tops and layering pieces like jackets as there’s a lot more variety than there would be with bottoms. Oh and it doesn’t hurt to add a colorful accessory to break up an all-black outfit either!
An over-sized blazer or boyfriend blazer can dress down your look for a more casual vibe.
To add more interest, choose a shade of black closer to a grey for a layered monochromatic look like Lydia did here with her outfit.
I’ve yet to try an over-sized blazer because I think there’s a stark contrast between over-sized and ill-fitting, ha!
What do you think of over-sized pieces? Are they “you” or no?
And if you’re looking for a more dressy vibe, the obvious answer is a tailored blazer.
One of the first rules to elevate your style is to always get your clothes tailored to fit your body. There’s nothing worse than wearing clothes that don’t fit your body’s unique shape.
It doesn’t have to be fitted to be skin-tight because there’s a difference between close-to-the-body fit and two-sizes-too-small fit. In this case, Leonie’s blazer is cut close to her body for a sleek and chic look!
Jeans are always a staple, however, blue washes can get a little boring sometimes.
Solution? Go for a sleek black yet unique cut pair of jeans! And if it has some extra details? Even better.
What I love about Erica’s look is that not only is her sweater edgy, her jeans are too! The off-centered silver button closure and collared waist just makes her outfit different yet fun!
I hope some of these all-black outfits inspire you to look at your wardrobe differently this fall season.
