As summer starts coming to a close, now is the ideal time to start planning out your early-fall outfits. With autumn just a couple of months away, cool weather will soon be on the horizon. If you’re looking for a few must-haves to add to your fall capsule wardrobe, we have the outfit inspiration for you. Explore our ideas to achieve the perfect chic, minimalist look this fall.
Summer Styles Meet Fall Fabrics
For a captivating early-fall look, consider outfits that still have an end-of-the-summer feel to them but in fabrics that lean toward fall — like knit crop tops paired with neutral pants. These early-fall clothes will allow you to be comfortable during the hottest part of the day while still providing some coverage as the evenings start to cool down. We recommend adding a blazer, cardigan, or jacket overtop of this look if your arms get chilly.
This year’s popular early-fall outfits also include ensembles that mix proportions. Balancing proportions is easy. Simply mix an oversized piece with a well-fitted piece — like an oversized blouse paired with tapered pants or Bermuda shorts or wide-legged pants with a form-fitting top. This unique combination provides an interesting silhouette that will breathe life into your look.
Dresses + Long-Sleeve Tops
No list of early-fall outfits would be complete without a dress paired with something that will keep you warm as the nights cool down. Autumn is the perfect time to stretch your favorite summer dress into the fall season with this transitional look.
A midi-length dress is a perfect choice for early fall, as it will keep you cool during the day and warm during the evening. Combine it with a blazer, a timeless outerwear option, to elevate your ensemble. These early-fall clothes are perfect for the workplace, running errands, heading to cocktail hour with your friends, or wherever your busy day takes you.
Don’t begin the fall season without ensembles featuring co-ord sets. Look for early-fall outfits like a bolero set. These sets come in a variety of styles — like a tube top and bolero cardigan or a vest with a matching bolero blazer. Whichever style you choose, these sets will create a gorgeous minimalist style that will keep you both cool and warm with the fluctuating temperatures outside. They’ll look great paired with wide-leg pants, cargo, or parachute pants.
The best early-fall outfits also include coordinating cardigan sets. Our favorite cardigan styles feature side-slit details, ribbed fabric, and dropped shoulders. Wear a cardigan set over matching lounge pants and a matching knit top for the ultimate elegant look.
These early-fall clothes are ideal wardrobe staples because they’ll keep you feeling toasty in cool weather while being more flexible than jackets. The right cardigan set will make you look effortlessly chic and perfectly refined.
Top off your autumn wardrobe outfits featuring rich and bold colors. This year, we are going after subtle/pastel tones for Fall. If you lean more toward neutrals, we suggest picking pieces that are taupe, brown, or feature a subdued color like slate blue.
