Before we go ahead and dive headfirst into puffer jackets and cashmere, let's take a moment to enjoy wearing easy outfits that are truly transitional. Cropped pants. Mules. Mid-weight jackets thrown over your favorite tee and worn undone.
While we do love how layers make our outfits feel a bit more personalized, it is also kind of nice when those layers don't require coat check yet. To celebrate this sweet moment between seasons, we've put together two perfect fall outfits with some help from Joie at Saks Fifth Avenue to get us through those days when it goes from 75 at lunch to 57 at dinner.
Which is your favorite look? Check out these super-easy fall outfits, designed to see you through this season.
The slight crop of this denim jacket makes it feel particularly transitional, and we're pinning these chic broaches on everything from our sweaters to our belt bags to our berets.
Don't be mad at the cargo pant trend. These super-flattering cropped fatigues look as good with bright oversize knits and statement coats as they do dressed down with a denim jacket.
It's going to be all about silver boots this winter, so stay one step ahead of the trends with these space-age metallic mules.
When it comes to outerwear, we currently can't get enough of cozy teddy-bear textures. With sporty touches too, this bomber doubles down on fall trends.
We love cropped jeans to show off some ankle and keep things cool between seasons. Come winter, make your look seamless by adding statement boots that rise up under the cuffs.
Yes, something does exist between summer's strappy footwear and winter's knee-high boots. These open-toe sandals are made to feel seasonally appropriate thanks to their plush velvet finish in a rich navy blue.
Need a few more pieces to get your fall look sorted? Check out even more on-trend looks from Joie over at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Natalie leads the style direction for the all content we create in partnership with our friends at various brands plus the legendary team of editors who work on those shoots and stories. She loves collaborating and storytelling, so it's a really fun role for her. It's also the first full-time job she's ever had! She started out in her career as a very mediocre model who agreed to her first styling job to impress a photographer she had a crush on, which led her down a happy path of contributing to Vogue Australia and working as a stylist, fashion writer, and creative director for all sorts of brands and titles. She has a bachelor of communications, but most of her career opportunities came up thanks to some fleeting and accidental street style moments. She's been at Who What Wear for three and a half years and still loves to work as a freelance consultant with brands and designers to shoot their campaigns in NYC. She's originally from New Zealand, and Bondi Beach is her second home, but like just about every other 20-something, she fell in love with New York at some point. She lives in Williamsburg with her fiancé and their weird little dog, Ruby. If you ever need reccies for feel-good fashion, legit coffee spots, politics podcasts, or non-intimidating yoga studios, she's very much your girl.
