I Like My Outfits Simple With a Hint of Trendiness—These 7 Looks Are It

As much as I love to research and discuss what's currently trending fashion-wise, 90% of the time you'll actually see me wearing outfits that are on the simpler end of the style spectrum. I'll always indulge in a trend or two, but no matter what new silhouette I'm trying out, I tend to feel like myself best in ensembles that are more pared-back. With my fall wardrobe on the brain, I've been seeking out practical styling inspiration for the season ahead and I think I've landed on just the looks to re-create.

The below seven outfits are the kind of easy and effortless ones that still have a little something extra to them. Whether it's a maxi skirt with simple flats, low-slung jeans with black ankle boots or a leather bomber jacket with a plain white tee, these styling ideas make fall's trending fashion items seem refreshingly approachable. Keep reading to see (and shop) these simple trendy fall outfits.



Maxi hemlines are going to be big this fall and the easiest way to style one is by swapping it for jeans with a low-key ensemble of a cropped tee and mules.

It doesn't get any easier than jeans, boots, and a leather jacket in the fall. Give the no-fail combo an update when you go for relaxed, low-slung jeans.

I guarantee fashion people will wear a version of this casual look all season comprised of relaxed trousers, sneakers, and a leather bomber jacket.

This perfect ensemble that features denim and a few more of-the-moment fall pieces like ballet flats and a structured blazer is ripe for re-creation.



Knee-length skirts were a noteworthy theme on the runways and they're worthy of wardrobe basic status. With a strapless top and minimal heels, the '90s-inspired energy is strong.



I like the idea of transforming my slip dresses into skirts for the fall by throwing a pullover sweater on top. It lends a dressed-down feel to an otherwise fancier piece and unlocks even more wears.

Scrunched-up socks and retro sneakers couldn't be any easier to wear but feel really now. Wear them with preppier staples like a striped sweater.
