While New Yorkers tend to dress well all year-round—lately they've been bringing it with their summertime 'fits—their fall style is where it really gets good, IMHO. As soon as the weather cools, you can spot NYC girls breaking out chic new outerwear looks, test driving the latest denim trends, and playing around with some creative layering ideas. So although this fall may not come with the same social calendar and likely without the fashion week shows to kick things off in September, we're still taking cues from these stylish New York women and their fall-ready looks.

We're all leaning into low-key, casual dressing these days and come fall, we're predicting the vibe will still be the same. From elevated legging looks to comfy knitted dresses you can wear both inside and out, we're looking to the below nine NYC fall outfits to guide our style. 

1. Blazer and Slit Leggings

Take your legging looks to a whole new level by opting for a trendy split hem pair that feels especially fresh. Throw on an oversize blazer for an instant polish.

2. Billowy Dress and Sneakers

Extend the shelf-life of your billowy sundresses by wearing them crisp white sneakers and even boots into fall.

3. Blazer, Basic Top, and Loose Jeans

If you do wear jeans, make this casual formula your new go-to. Wear loose-fitting or wide-leg denim with a basic tank, tee, or bodysuit and top it off with a blazer and flats. It's simple, but looks so chic.

4. Coordinating Sweats

Just because we're no longer wearing sweats 24/7 doesn't mean we're ditching them completely, either. In fact, I think it's given us a newfound appreciation for a matching set in a pretty color. Wear one with tall socks and throwback sneakers for the ultimate cozy-cool vibe.

5. Ribbed Knit Dress

Knit dresses are another cold-weather trend that's deceivingly comfortable and easily dressed up or down—it all depends on the shoes and accessories.

6. Sweater and Slip Dress

Slip dresses rose to a new level of popularity this summer, so we predict that fashion girls will keep wearing them into fall with the addition of a cute cardigan thrown over.

7. Turtleneck and Shacket

If you wore the shacket trend last fall, well, congrats, because it's not going anywhere. Look for one that's printed or in a non-neutral color and style it unbuttoned over a monochrome base.

8. Leather Outerwear

Fall = leather weather, no doubt about it. This fall, leather trench coats, blazers, and more are set to be the outerwear of choice among the stylish NYC set.

9. Socks with Loafers

To give loafers (and other flat shoes) a quirky-cool update, simply style them with tall socks. Bonus points if your socks come in an eye-catching color or a pretty print.
