9 Fall Outfit Trends the Most Stylish Women Are Already Wearing

Trends are always top of mind for us here at Who What Wear. We talk a lot about bag trends, denim trends, dress trends, shoe trends—you name it. But something we'd like to point out is that there are outfit trends to think about too. Certain outfit combinations and styling tricks seem to catch on like wildfire among the fashion crowd, and inevitably, everyone else follows suit.

With fall inching nearer, more and more of these outfit trends are popping up on our radar, and we combed through and chose some of the most promising ones you'll want to know about. Even though these cozy looks are perfect for fall weather, you can start wearing many of them now and bookmark the others for later reference. If you're inclined to try them, we've shopped out the key pieces you'll need for each, as we do.

Scroll away for a slew of outfit ideas to see you through the fall.

In case you haven't heard, knit dresses are one of fall's most popular dress trends, and wearing one with sleek mules happens to be a simple outfit trend too.

Oversize Blazer + Mini Dress + Knee Boots

Big blazers aren't going anywhere this fall, and throwing one over a mini dress (for a no-pants look) with knee-high boots is shaping up to be the popular way to wear one.

Bright Cardigan + Printed Trousers

Cardigans? For fall? Yes, we know, groundbreaking. Fashion girls are giving their knits new life though this fall, pairing bold cardigans with even bolder printed jeans.

Sculptural Sweater + Leather Pants + Chain Necklace

Forget boring sweaters—it's all about sculptural knits this fall. They look luxe on their own, but the fashion set is styling them with leather pants and chain necklaces for even more zhoosh.

Shirtdress + Loafers
