Getting dressed should be fun–and easy! That’s why outfit formulas are super helpful to have in your back pocket.
These 7 easy fall outfit formulas are totally easy to create. Plus, a lot of these wardrobe staples are easy to mix and match!
From denim jeans to skirts and dresses, this roundup has it all to create a variety of looks.
Seven Easy Fall Outfit Formulas
The goal of any wardrobe is to be able to purchase pieces that you truly love, and that you’ll have for years to come. This means plenty of wardrobe basics and mix and match pieces.
You also want to ask yourself, “Will I be able to pair this with several clothing pieces I already own?” If the answer is yes, that’s probably a good item to add to your wardrobe.
Denim Jeans with a Cropped Cardigan
The first of the seven easy fall outfit formulas that are easy to recreate that I’m sharing is this button-up cardigan with straight-leg jeans.
What’s versatile about this particular sweater is you can choose to wear it buttoned up and worn alone. Or, you can layer a t-shirt or bodysuit underneath and wear it open to create two different looks.
The two pockets give it more texture and interest on the front of the cardigan. If you prefer a more neutral color, this sweater comes in five other colors.
Straight jeans are an on-trend, must-have for your fall wardrobe. If you don’t love your jeans to be super loose, try finding a straight leg that fits well through the waist and thighs to give a more streamlined look. (I personally love Abercrombie straight-leg jeans. You can check out my Abercrombie denim try-on & comparison here.)
Denim Jeans with a Cropped Sweater
This next easy fall outfit formula is a casual way to style straight-leg jeans. This ribbed cropped sweater is the perfect neutral sweater to wear all season long.
With straight-leg jeans, I suggest wearing cropped sweaters or tucking your sweater into your jeans. That way, you don’t lose structure in the overall look.
To keep this look casual, pair a bootie with your straight jeans with a tote bag. This would be a great look to wear to a fall festival or cute pumpkin patch outfit idea. Plus, the leather tote can hold all the things you might need for your kiddos at the patch or festival too!
PRO TIP: When wearing straight jeans with booties, make sure the straight jeans hit just above your ankle bone. That way you can distinguish the top of the boot and the end of the jean.
Denim Jeans With a Cardigan
This easy fall look that’s easy to recreate combines an open-front cardigan with straight jeans. The open-front cardigan has a more forgiving fit compared to the cropped cardigan. Layer a a bodysuit underneath to balance out the look.
You could also pair faux leather leggings with this outfit instead of straight jeans. Finish the look with these beautiful blush pink mules.
This chevron leather crossbody is the perfect purse to dress the look up. Because it’s a crossbody, it’s easy to carry on trips, while shopping or just when you want to carry your essentials.
Slip Midi Skirt With a Cardigan
This next easy fall look would be perfect to wear to a baby or wedding shower in the fall. This modern satin skirt is an on-trend option that gives the look a feminine vibe.
I paired it with a cropped cardigan, so I didn’t have to tuck anything into the skirt. Because it’s satin, you want to be careful with lines showing through. That’s why a cropped sweater or a bodysuit would be perfect choices for this particular skirt.
Long Sleeve Mini Dress with Booties
I had to throw in a sweater dress in the fall outfit formulas. This is the perfect mini dress for the fall because of the cozy sweater material. The added collar gives it a posh, sophisticated look.
One other thing I love about this sweater dress is that it comes in petite, regular and tall lengths to get that perfect fit.
To elevate this fall outfit, add a wool hat. Trust me, it takes an outfit to a whole new level.
Wear your hair down or with a braid to the side. Finish the look with neutral booties. Another fun shoe to wear with this dress is a knee-high boot for date night.
Cropped White Jeans with Mules
Who said white jeans are just for the spring and summer months? No way! You can wear them year-round and I love this pair that feature a raw hem.
These jeans would look great with any top featured in this roundup, allowing you to create several outfit options.
Remember, it’s not about the quantity of clothing you have, it’s about finding neutral pieces that can be mixed and match to extend the wear of each piece.
This neutral turtleneck is a staple sweater to have in your closet. You can front-tuck this into the jeans to define your waistline. Complete the look with these darling plaid mules for a pop of print.
Faux Leather Mini Skort with a Cropped Sweater
The last look in this roundup of easy fall outfit ideas features a faux leather mini skort. Leather and suede are two fabrics to build into your wardrobe throughout the fall and winter.
To give your legs a little extra coverage, you can pair knee-high boots with the skort. Then take the cropped ribbed sweater we used to style with straight-leg jeans and pair it with this skort for a date night look.
Creating a versatile wardrobe that you love doesn’t have to be expensive. It just has to be intentional, and hope this post helps you feel confident throughout the fall season.
