My Style Is Simple, and These Are My Favorite Fall Outfit Ideas

My style is simple, but I like to think that that doesn’t mean it’s boring—and hopefully others agree. While I admittedly love the occasional statement shoes, flashy dress, or standout bag, I’ve always believed that when it comes to day-to-day style, you can achieve an impressive outfit without wearing anything out of the ordinary. That’s why my closet is mostly made of basics such as jeans, t-shirts, simple jackets, and a lot of black, with “fun” pieces sprinkled in here and there.

So, when it comes to fall, I approach my favorite season’s fashion with the same mentality and tend to stick to simpler outfits that as a package look polished, put together, and, of course, stylish. With that in mind, I scanned the world of celebrity style, street style, and our recent favorite—Instagram style—to narrow down my favorite outfits to copy for the season ahead. What to expect? A lot of black, neutrals, pops of animal print, basics, classic silhouettes, and most importantly easy-to-copy inspiration. As for the rest? Simply continue on to see (and shop) for yourself.

I love the animal-print trend because it acts as a neutral and pretty much goes with everything. This is just one of many ways to wear it simply.

Remember what I said about animal print? Another easy look is a printed dress in a classic silhouette styled with pumps.

At my height of 5'2", I prefer to skip the traditional full-length suit and pair a matching shorts set with a T-shirt and barely there heels instead.

Another way to update a classic silhouette for fall's trends is to opt for a sleek wrap dress in of-the-moment faux leather.

Last but not least, you can truly never go wrong with an oversize blazer, black jeans, and mules.
