Dressing for fall is where I thrive. I live for the season where I can style cozy sweaters and open-toe sandals in sartorial harmony. There’s unquestionably a thrill of putting together an autumn ensemble which is why I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for fresh outfit inspiration—whether its on the runways, from street style photography, on Instagram, or my personal favorite—Zara. (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve visited Zara’s app and promptly screen-shotted a slew of styled looks in a frenzy of inspiration.)
So what is it that will make our fall outfits noticeably chicer and fashion-forward this season? The way we style them, of course. You see, it’s not always about the trends or basics themselves, the real genius resides in the styling of them. This season, I’ve spotted plenty of cool styling tricks, ideas, and clothing combinations that feel of-the-moment and will take your outfit from zero to one hundred in an instant. Below, you'll find plenty of inspiration from the F/W 22 runways, our favorite fashion girls, and yes—Zara, too—that are trendy yet wearable—guaranteed to elevate your look.
