10 Brilliant Outfit Trends All the Coolest Fashion People Are Flaunting

Trends are always top of mind for us here at Who What Wear. We talk a lot about bag trends, denim trends, color 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.

1. Knit Column Skirt + Matching Knit Crop Top

We love a matching set—who doesn't? This fall, it's all about one silhouette in particular: knit column skirts and coordinating knit crop tops. The comfy, easy, and incredibly chic vibe is this season's answer to elevated loungewear.

2. Waistcoat + Trousers + Slides

In case you haven't heard, tailored vests are one of fall's most popular suiting trends, and wearing one with matching trousers happens to be a simple (but highly effective) outfit trend, too.

3. Colored Leather Jacket + Baggy Jeans + Retro Sneakers

Leather for fall? Yes, we know it's groundbreaking. Though, fashion girls are giving their outerwear new life this fall, pairing bold trench coats with even bolder accessories.

4. Oversize Blazer + Minidress + Heeled Sandals

Big blazers aren't going anywhere this fall, and throwing one over a fun minidress (for a no-pants look) with strappy heels is shaping up to be the popular way to wear one.

5. "Dad" Pants + Retro Sneakers + Trench Coat

There's a new basics silhouette in town, and it's all about slouchy separates. A classic trench coat, a white tee, and wide-leg trousers create an easy but chic outfit we expect to see a lot of this fall.

6. Relaxed Suiting + Tonal Accessories

Tonal tailoring was a big trend on the fall/winter 2021 runways, and now, it's becoming a reality on the street, too. It's not hard to see why it translates so well off the runway: It's an easy way to look put-together with very little effort.

7. Pleated Miniskirt + Knee Boots + Slouchy Bag

Pleated miniskirts are quickly shaping up to be fall's biggest trend, and the coolest way to show yours off is with knee-high boots and a structured jacket.

8. Striped Sweater + Trousers + Classic Sneakers

Forget boring sweaters—it's all about preppy knits this fall. They add an elevated appeal to even the most casual outfits, as is obvious with this simple-but-cool formula including relaxed trousers and classic sneakers.

9. Blazer + Miniskirt + Loafers + Socks

A crisp blazer-dress paired with loafers is a classic and timeless outfit. Pro tip: Add ankle socks with the loafers to give your look an academic spin.

10. Corset Top + Cargo Pants + Heeled Sandals

Love 'em or hate 'em, cargo pants are having a moment in the spotlight again, and this just might be our favorite way to style the utility piece. Wear them with a corset top and strappy heels for a cool contrast.
