Best Wardrobe Staples for Fall

Your Fall Activity Fashion Guide

With sweaters, scarves, shawls, and boots, it’s no secret that fall lends itself well to fashion. There are many ways to create cute outfits for autumn, whether you’re going to the pumpkin patch with your family, going for a long leaf-peeping hike, attending a football game, or going out for an autumnal vineyard day with friends.

It’s easy to style a fashionable and fun outfit to wear to any gathering this autumn; you just need a few versatile staples in your wardrobe. Here are some go-to outfit options for all of the fun fall activities on your calendar.

Opt for a Classic Plaid Flannel Shirt

Flannel shirts are an autumnal staple that can be worn to any gathering. Plus, as a bonus, they can easily be dressed up or dressed down with the right pairings. For example, if you’re headed to a football game, why not throw an unbuttoned flannel shirt on over your game-day T-shirt and wear it with jeans and some trusty sneakers? Or, if you’re going out for a pumpkin beer with friends, wear your flannel tucked into a black denim skirt and with heeled booties.

Your flannel shirt will work for a family day, too. Try wearing your favorite flannel with leggings, a baseball hat, sunglasses, and sneakers for a hike or a visit to a pumpkin patch.

Layer Your Flannel Under a Jean Jacket

Jean jackets are effortlessly cool; they’re casual, cute, and go with almost anything. A jean jacket can be an outfit staple for any fall gathering. For a football game, a neighborhood bonfire, or a day of apple picking, simply wear your jean jacket over your favorite flannel top. Pair that with black leggings and fashionable sneakers to complete the outfit.

Get a Pair of Corduroy Pants

While jeans tend to be worn all throughout the year, there are pants that only have their fanfare in the fall: corduroy pants. Corduroy pants are a great fall outfit option that truly celebrates the season and goes with almost any top in your wardrobe. Corduroy pants can be worn with a classic mock neck sweater during an afternoon of apple picking or can be worn with a button-down cardigan and tank top for a gathering at a neighbor’s house.

A cream or white cashmere turtleneck with a pair of dark corduroy pants and knee-high brown leather boots gives off a classic style that’s versatile and ideal for almost any fall activity, whether you’re going to a corn maze, hosting a pumpkin carving party, or going on a fall date with your partner.

Try a Wool Coat

If you’re worried about getting cold at the outdoor fall gatherings on your to-do list, get yourself a wool coat, which are cozy and stylish alternatives to winter coats that are normally too warm for a fall day. Women’s wool coats come in a variety of lengths, colors, and styles, allowing you to select the jacket that fits in with your lifestyle. Most of our wool coats come in longer styles that will look just as good with a pair of booties as they will with a pair of white fashion sneakers. Our coats come in plus sizes and petite sizes as well.

Wear your wool coat with one of our winter scarves for a touch of texture and a pop of color. With just these two staples—a wool coat and a scarf—your outfit will be set for any outdoor gathering this fall.

Invest in a Pair of Black Leggings

For many women, black leggings and a long top are two of their necessities for fall. These two items are simple, go with everything, and keep you warm on autumn days. Leggings are a wardrobe item that you can never have too many pairs of—they’re great for fall travel, ideal for a comfortable option at a football game, and can be dressed up for family pictures at a pumpkin patch or apple orchard.

A long top like a flannel, tunic, or chambray is a great shirt choice for leggings. For shoes, athletic sneakers work well for a rocky autumn hike, and leather boots work well for a visit with friends or family. Better yet, black leggings are comfortable enough for lounging at home with a book, too.

With flannel, leggings, corduroy pants, and light jackets, you have all you need to create an autumnal wardrobe that’ll be a perfect fit for any activity on your calendar this fall.
