After spending a frustrating fifteen minutes every morning for the past two weeks staring at my closet trying to decide what to wear, I realized I have a love-hate relationship with the fall. I enjoy the beautiful foliage and crisp cool air, but I often feel like I don't have anything to wear (worst feeling ever). That is, until... I came up with a fall outfit formula. Yes, a formula. Each season I get in the habit of rotating a few key pieces in my wardrobe to make outfit choosing easy. All summer long I wear a variation of maxi skirts, A-line dresses, midi skirts, a structured blouse, statement piece, and sandals. But when it comes time for the fall, I often feel stumped because one second it's hot and the next it's bone-chilling cold. As the temperatures begin to shift I've slowly restocked my closet with all the essentials- cashmere, knit sweaters, ankle booties, faux fur vests, long sleeved dresses, and chunky scarves.
Once I gathered the foundation, I started building quick and easy "wear-anywhere" outfits. This high-waisted skater skirt ensemble is number one on my go-to list and it can be worn straight into November if you layer wisely. Simply add a chunky knit sweater and scarf. I recommend updating your wardrobe with a few oversized scarves, like this "Study Date" one by Pink Slate Boutique. It's always good to have a few of these on hand when you want to wrap up in something cozy and still look polished. Since the temps are currently in the 50s/60s, I was able to get away sans jacket and stockings, but you can layer those items on as needed.
Here are a few more fabulous fall outfit ideas that will help solve your "nothing to wear" problems:
-Faux leather leggings + an oversized sweater- check out this fun post by Lana Jayne for inspiration
-A cropped trench coat + an A-line skirt
-An oversized blazer + a faux leather skirt
-Skinny jeans + a printed blazer
