9 Casual Fall Outfits Comprising Just the Basics

Casual fall outfits? More importantly, easy casual fall outfits? Sign us up. We have found ourselves stumped by the contents of our own closets on more than one occasion, but there is something about the colder seasons that makes us feel like we have been wearing the same thing for months. While there is nothing wrong with wearing a black sweater, vintage denim, and black booties at least three times a week, we all know that's kind of taking the easy way out.

Ahead, we are bringing you the casual fall outfits you can throw together in minutes. Combining comfortable go-to items—like a slip dress with a boxy blazer, a knit dress with chunky boots, or a cardigan with high-waisted jeans—just might change your fall style for the better. Who are we kidding? It will definitely change it for the better.
