5 Timeless Early-Fall Outfits You Already Own

by Allyson Payer

Like it or not, it's time to say goodbye to summer for the time being, which means that it's time to set aside the white linen dresses, straw bags, and sandals to make way for pieces that are a little more substantial but no less easy to throw together. Accordingly, we're here to supply the early-fall outfits to inspire you as you transition into the new season.

The easiest way to ease your wardrobe into fall is to look to outfit formulas that look good year after year, all of which can be made up of pieces already in your closet. The beauty of timeless outfits is that if you want a more forward look, a simple accessory swap can easily take you there.

For a little early-fall outfit inspiration, we looked to the stylish women that have walked the streets of fashion weeks past. Since September will be here before you know it, there's no time like the present to start adding these effortlessly stylish outfits to your roster.

Go on to see (and shop, just in case) exactly what you need to re-create five timeless early-fall outfits you already own.
