Another season, another roundup of my favorite outfits for girls who aren’t looking to reinvent the wheel with their fashion choices. Of course, as I’ve mentioned before, I like to think that having simple style doesn’t mean you necessarily need to dress boring or basic. Rather, for me, it means combining classic essentials with a handful of trend-forward (but investment-worthy) pieces for outfits that feel cool and polished but not too out-there.
Below you can expect my top three favorite fall-ready outfits from three groups—celebrities, girls I follow on Instagram, and street style stars—all nine of which are easy to re-create (and repeat) and shoppable at any budget. Whether you’re a denim lover, live in skirts and dresses, are looking for a good suit set, or all of the above, I guarantee there’s something for you, so just keep scrolling to get started.
While I can't blame Hailey Bieber for opting for the It trench of the season (or perhaps of the year), this easy combo of coat, basic top, jeans, and sneakers can look as good at any budget. Bonus points for her on-trend necklace, too.
On Hailey Bieber: JW Anderson Plaid Contrast Cotton Trench Coat ($1645); Nike sneakers
I'll be taking notes from Rihanna and pairing one of the season's biggest sweater trends (knit layering) with jeans and mules immediately.
On Rihanna: Celine Square Acetate Sunglasses ($550); Michael Kors Collection Cashmere One-Shoulder Tie-Sleeve Top ($990) and Cashmere Low-Back Bodysuit ($650); Balenciaga Skinny Jeans ($550); Bottega Veneta Lido Sandals ($1270)
Skirts suits continue to trend this season, and my personal favorite iteration is the mini. Any shoes will work, but as you can see, boots are always a safe bet.
Give the Canadian tuxedo an instant upgrade by layering a trench over your denim and styling your jeans over black kitten-heeled boots.
Leather is trending hard right now, and one no-fuss way to get the look without going too crazy is to simply pair a luxe leather top with your go-to jeans and mules.
On the Streets
You probably already have the sweater and midi skirt, so now all you need is a chic pair of animal-print statement boots to complete the look.
Finally, closing it out with the coziest outfit around—that just happens to also be unbelievably cool. Pair a fall-ready knit dress with a mini bag and knee boots for a chic look that works every time.
