With the passing of Labor Day, I’m officially in the mood for fall. It’s my favorite season to get dressed because there are so many layering ideas and trends to play with from oversized blazers and tailored outerwear trends to cozy knits and boots. I also find that it’s much easier to come up with unique outfit combinations around this time of the year. Fall is all about effortless, cozy pairings as well as more polished, layered looks. If you’re interested in trying out a new crop of stylish fall outfit ideas this year, I’m rounding up 10 of my favorites below. We’re still in that strange transition from summer to fall but many of these looks can be adjusted for the weather no matter where you live.

1. Blazer, Oversized Scarf, & Brown Denim
The fastest way to transition your wardrobe to fall is to play with autumnal colors. I’m obsessing over all the chocolate browns and neutral color palettes right now. To get an early start on the trend, simply add a pair of brown jeans to your denim rotation.

I love how gray looks instantly elevated and sophisticated. Just remember to keep your outfit interesting by mixing in different tones, textures, and volume.
