Want to get the most wear out of your clothes? If you're the type of person who loves to keep a minimalist closet, or someone who has been dreaming about creating a capsule wardrobe — a few essential pieces that work per season — take heed! There are tons of items that can be worn both in the spring and the fall, depending on how you style them. In this post, we will take a look at six fall outfit ideas that are practical and look great in both seasons.
Both a light wash denim jacket and a dark blue denim jacket can be worn in the spring and fall seasons. This wardrobe staple is something that every woman should have hanging in her closet because it is such a versatile piece that can be worn with a variety of outfits in both the spring and fall. If you are piecing together a cute, warm-weather outfit, pair your denim jacket with a lightweight floral blouse, white pants, and espadrille wedge sandals. Another cute way to wear a denim jacket is with colorful pastel-colored summer dresses or maxi dresses. In the fall, wear your denim jacket with richer tones, like a long-sleeve burgundy shirt or something in deep purple, navy blue, or burnt orange. A denim jacket can also be worn very stylishly with a pair of denim jeans in either the same color or lighter. Finish your trendy fall outfits with sneakers or a pair of ankle boots and you have yourself a very classic fall outfit.
The ankle boot, unlike other more cold-weather footwear choices, can be worn in both the spring and fall. In the spring season, stick to lighter and more neutral colors like beige, gray, white, or something bright and fun to pair with an equally fun and sunny outfit. Play with style and variety by opting for ankle boots that have a decidedly more springtime flair to them, like a pair of ankle boots with a slight heel and an open toe. In the autumn weather, choose ankle boots that are decidedly more fall-like, such as a black or brown ankle boot made in a material like suede or leather.
Technically, scarves can be worn at any time of year, depending primarily on what fabric they are made of. In the spring season, you can accessorize with lightweight scarves that come in vibrant patterns or pastel colors. In the fall, stick to heavier fabrics in order to fulfill the purpose of both keeping your neck warm and making your outfit even more stylish. A scarf in the spring could be worn with anything from a tank top to a denim jacket to a sundress, whereas a scarf in the fall can be worn with women’s sweaters, cardigans, turtlenecks, and other thicker, warmer tops.
Denim vests. Quilted Vests. Athletic Vests. There are vests galore and countless styles, colors, materials, and fits to choose from help you find the perfect vest for the spring and the fall. Like the aforementioned items, the vest is one of those clothing items that can be worn in two seasons and not just one. It’s all about what type of vest you choose and how you style it. A denim vest looks fabulous atop a sleeveless, knee-length floral dress, a quintessential springtime outfit. A quilted vest in a rich blue or green color looks great with a long-sleeve turtleneck shirt, a pair of jeans, and equestrian-style riding boots.
Fall, winter, spring, summer; women’s jeans are designed to be worn any time of year. Even if you are experiencing an unseasonably balmy spring day, you can substitute a pair of long denim jeans for a cute denim skirt or pair of shorts. In the fall, stick to denim wear that offers more coverage to keep you warm on a chilly autumn day. No matter whether it’s spring or fall, a pair of denim jeans will never look out of place (unless you are wearing them to a formal wedding). There are an endless number of ways to incorporate jeans into a more spring weather outfit and then ways to wear denim jeans for fall. In the spring, pair your skinny jeans with a crisp white tee, a tank top, or a cute and colorful blouse. In the fall, wear jeans with a soft cashmere sweater, a suede blazer, or anything with one or two thick layers.
The main thing to keep in mind when considering what type of midi skirt to wear during the spring or fall is the fabric of the skirt. Thicker materials like wool or corduroy are best worn in chillier months like the fall season, whereas a midi skirt made out of a lighter material like cotton is best for those spring days when the weather is starting to warm up. If you are worried about your legs getting too chilly wearing a midi skirt on a fall day, finish the look with a pair of colorful leggings or stockings and a cute pair of ankle boots. It’s stylish and playful yet serves the purpose of keeping you warm while looking good. In the spring, pair a midi skirt with a white blouse or colorful top with various designs if you want to make more of a fashion statement.
Making the most out of your wardrobe, more than anything, means having fun with it. Pick out some pieces that can be worn on a warm or breezy day, dressed up or down, ready for spring or fall, depending on how they're styled.
