These "Boring" Outfit Formulas Will Dominate This Fall

When it comes to getting dressed in the morning, sometimes it’s easiest to wear outfit formulas that you know are foolproof and can rely on again and again. I tend to approach my outfits with this formula method in mind and gained some new inspiration for go-to looks from the street style scene at fashion month. Many of the looks I liked could be described as “boring,” but they’re endlessly chic and breathing some new life into what I’m wearing right now.

Each of these fall outfit formulas includes wardrobe essentials that you probably have in your closet already—utilizing basics like oversize blazers, knee-high boots, straight-leg jeans, suiting, and low heels. Here, find fresh ideas for how to wear these pieces with outfits that are perfect to wear everywhere from the office to post-work drinks. Go on to see the best fall outfit formulas to wear right now—these will no doubt dominate what fashion insiders will be wearing for the season ahead.

Jeans with a tee and blazer

There is perhaps no outfit more simple that jeans and a T-shirt, but the items are instantly elevated with the addition of an oversize blazer and luxe knee-high boots.

A gray suit with boots

Suiting often gets a bad reputation for being too corporate, but you can easily make a pantsuit look stylish by tucking your trousers into a pair of knee-high boots.

Jeans with a turtleneck and tweed jacket

Turtlenecks are a fall staple you can rely on for a number of outfits. Here, a tweed jacket adds dimension to an otherwise simple outfit pairing.

A beige suit and top

Beige continues to be the color fashion insiders turn to for minimal, modern looks. Here, Alex Carl proves just how stylish a head-to-toe tonal outfit is.

A blazer dress with kitten heels

Blazers continue to be a fashion-girl staple and this fall we've been seeing more dress-inspired versions. Simply pair one with some kitten heels for a foolproof look.

A shorts suit with knee-high boots

Suiting continues to be reinvented, and one of the most forward versions is a shorts suit. On the S/S 20 runways, we saw Bermuda shorts styled with knee-high boots, so get an early start by replicating this outfit.
