5 OUTFIT COMBINATIONS YOU NEED TO TRY FOR FALL

5 OUTFIT COMBINATIONS YOU NEED TO TRY FOR FALL

The leaves are falling and the air is finally starting to cool down. Pumpkins are appearing on doorsteps and bags full of Snickers and Twix are popping up on shelves in grocery stores -- fall is right around the corner. Summer temperatures have been with us for quite some time now, leaving us accustomed to bare legs and sleeveless tops. But the weather is changing, and our wardrobes and ensembles need to follow suit. Below, are 5 outfit combinations that will give you major fall inspiration. Try them out for yourself!

Lifestyle blogger and YouTuber Caitlin Bea gave her mini skirt a fall twist. Instead of tucking her skirts into the back of her closet, she warmed up the staple with an off-the-shoulder chunky knit sweater. In fear of your favorite summer skirts collecting dust all season long? Try pairing them with your favorite warm-weather tops and thigh-high boots for an autumn upgrade.

OVERSIZED DREAMS VIA @ALLEGRAROSEB

What better way to get cozy than by layering your favorite oversized pieces? Fashionista and self-proclaimed adventurer, Allegra Rose, embraced the crisp air by layering a wide-sleeved cardigan over a printed maxi dress. This combination may look intimidating, as long layers are not for everyone. But try your hand at pairing together all dress lengths -- midi, mini, and beyond!

MONOCHROMATIC COZINESS VIA @SOMETHINGNAVY

Nothing says "fashion it-girl" quite like a killer all-black ensemble. Arielle Charnas of Something Navy is the queen of Instagram fashion bloggers, and knows a thing or two about putting together a stylish yet sensible outfit. In the fall, the cool temps cause us to want to stay under the warm covers all morning. So if you end up waking up late and are in a rush to get ready, take inspiration from Charnas, and throw on your best monochromatic ensemble.

BOOTS MADE FOR WALKING VIA @OHHCOUTURE

German style blogger, Leonie Hanne, is the queen of all things layering. No matter if the garment is long, short, oversized, or fitted, she makes layers look good. This fall, her expertise is more prevalent than ever. This past New York Fashion Week, Hanne paired printed midi dresses with over-the-knee boots. While most people opt for a shorter, fitted dress to wear with OTK shoes, Hanne created a streamlined look by pairing long with long. Try it for yourself for the ultimate boho fashion-girl look.

COOL GIRLS WEAR TURTLENECKS VIA @AMANDA_STANTONN

This mama-turned-fashion-Instagrammer may be best known for her appearance on the Bachelor, but she's made a lasting impression with her style images featuring her daughters. In one of her recent pictures, Stanton is seen matching with her "twin" in a polka-dotted jumpsuit that's perfect for summer temperatures. But instead of retiring this piece for fall, Stanton made it an essential by layering a long-sleeved turtleneck underneath. Do you have a summer piece that you wish you could wear in cooler temps? Take note from Staton, and layer it up!
