I'm a Modest Dresser, and I'll Certainly Be Copying These 10 Fall 'Fits

As someone who dresses modestly, fall happens to be my favorite season. With all the layering possibilities and cozy fashion picks, there's a lot to love about the season. Before you know it, winter will be heading straight for us, so I'm determined to get the most I can out of my wardrobe right now. I've been adding looks to my mood board and thought I'd share them so you can put them on your radar, too. I tend to gravitate toward different styles, so expect everything from tonal looks to bright-hued ensembles.

Keep scrolling for 10 outfit ideas you'll definitely be inspired by this season. Soon, your chic outfits might be covered with puffer jackets and thick wool coats, so make sure to take notes and act quickly.

You can't go wrong with a coordinating suit. Opt for an oversize fit and tonal accessories to polish it up.

I'm green with envy for this outfit. I've been thinking about suit vests so much that I lost track of oversize ones, but they're definitely back on my radar.

Printed sets may look like pajamas, but that doesn't mean they can't be stylish. Just throw a leather blazer on top and pull on your favorite comfy sneakers.

Shacket weather doesn't last very long, so you should appreciate it while its here.

Cardigan sets don't have to stop there—add dimension by layering a T-shirt underneath for extra warmth.

The key to making a neutral outfit not boring? Many, many layers.

Pleated skirts are a staple that seems to come back around every season. To make a skirt more fall-friendly, layer a leather top over it and keep the last few buttons open.

Slip skirts are a summer savior, but they work great for the fall, too. Whether the color is bright or subdued, a cropped cardigan will make it fit perfectly with the chilly weather.

A ribbed-knit skirt is the cozy yet stylish essential you'll be able to rely on heavily this season. Dress it down with a sweater or up with a wrap top and matching accessories.

If you're stuck on how to incorporate a bold hue into your outfit, try going monochrome.
