15 Outfits That Show How To Wear Fall’s Biggest Staples

You’ve likely been waiting patiently in the scorching heat, ready to start piling on layers. Now that the temperature has dipped down to 60 degrees, it’s go time. Whether you’re digging your boots, jackets, sweaters, or turtlenecks out from the corners of your closet, the creative potential for fall outfits is all about taking those seasonal fall basics and mixing it with a few new trends. This season, the pervasive style is still leaning classic, with vests, chunky loafers, leather jackets, and knee-high boots among the mix, as well as menswear-inspired monochrome oversized suits (no matter what Saint Laurent’s Anthony Vaccarello has against them!). Needless to say, the preppy Princess Diana aesthetic that brought us the bike shorts craze is still here, and the girlies on Instagram and TikTok are ready to give this vibe one more run.
