Fall time doesn’t only qualify as orange leaves and pumpkins, it also means parties galore! From New Years Eve to the traditional Christmas party, you shouldn’t be fashionably discouraged due to the weather. Here is 13 looks from celebrities everywhere that prove to us the true meaning of fall fashion. Let’s begin!
The first look is effortless but will surely turn some heads. Queen Bey pulls this look off amazingly. She wears her voluminous hair down to emphasize her facial structure. This printed shift dress and over-the-knee boots keep the outfit warm, but also show a small bit of skin to keep it sexy. If you don’t prefer thigh-highs, then just pair the dress with calf height boots and sheer colored tights.
Take note from style crush Rachel Bilson for and don’t be afraid to mix eye-catching textures and colors for a cocktail event. Complementing the dress with metallic heels is an amazing way to make each part of the outfit unique. Her trick: Skip the metallic on the dress to avoid any matchy-matchy-ness and keep the shine to a sleek minimum.
Lauren Conrad is always busy with countless projects, so dressing to go from work to play is her specialty. The essential: a tweed mini-dress, with an interesting element, be it LC’s bustier top or sophisticated embroidery. Layer on a blazer or cardigan by day, then strip off it off for night. Don’t forget to stash a pair of strappy metallic heels and a bright lipstick under your desk for the post-5 P.M. switch too.
Seriously, the no white after Labor Day rule has become obsolete. Winter whites are huge for fall too, so try a long-sleeve jacquard top and blousy shorts like Amanda Seyfried’s outfit. Soft gray pumps bring the look into fall without being as jarring as black. You’ll stand out from the crowd at those September rooftop parties and chic wine-tasting nights you have planned. Wearing a deep berry or auburn lip adds the autumn feel.
Several stars have shown us that printed suits are mandatory for all fashionista’s going-out closet. Keeping all other pieces neutral besides the printed suit adds a feature of elegance for any occasion. She stayed buttoned up, but her high-heel patent Mary Janes give the menswear vibe a dash of playful girliness.
Kate Moss’ silky blazer and toned-down vibe makes this look perfect for a casual night out. To add more flare, accompany the blazer with solid colored pants and keep all other pieces neutral. Accessorize with a long necklace and cute rings to add more shimmer to the look.
This combo isn’t for the faint of fashion heart, but if you’ve got some serious sartorial game, try a lush green wide-leg jumpsuit topped off with a bold purple faux-fur jacket. I dare you. These hats are huge for the fall season and can be found at Forever 21 for less than $20.00!
This is the trick to an effortless, eye-catching outfit ideal for hanging with your girls. Just mix and unmatch a patterned bomber jacket and pants in totally different prints. Plus, you can wear each piece on its own with matching pairings later. If you don’t prefer high-cut crop tops like this, a black tank top works just as fine.
Don’t put those dancing heels away just yet; September is a major month for weddings. So stash those pastels and try a glimmering metallic—specifically gold—instead, like fashionable Brit Alexa Chung. She even matched her peep-toe heels to her dress for a 100 percent pure precious-metal ensemble. If you live in a cold area, pair this with printed tights or even a cropped leather jacket to add a more rugged feel.
Don’t give up your pretty lace dresses just because the season has turned. Look to Sienna Miller’s flirty frock as an example. Pick a fall-friendly hue and long sleeves, and temper the femininity of the piece with edgy black embellished pumps. The look is perfect for a fall wedding, a romantic dinner, or an elegant celebration with friends. Wearing the hair up with a dress like this adds a lovely touch.
You’re thinking about investing in a pair of leather pants and you want to coordinate with a glam, but elegant top for a night out. Look to Zoe Saldana in Gucci to amp up the sexy staple even further with a gold-and-black sleeveless blouse. If you keep the silhouettes tailored (and your skin covered), the overall look stays sleek and refined.
Keep your florals blooming for fall, but experiment with moodier digital prints, like Rose Byrne. Take the look up a notch with sexy sheer panels and bad-girl gunmetal stilettos—perfect for date night or if you’re looking for someone to share a date night with, if you know what I mean.
Fall is, hands-down, the best season for layering and Olivia Palermo is at the top of her game in that department. If you’re looking for a trendy office-to-play or chic cocktail bar outfit, think about co-opting this one. Start with an exuberantly printed yellow dress (possibly crossed over from summer?). Then top it off with an electric purple leather jacket, which is an inspired investment for fall. You can work this outfit with a rainbow of color combos—just be sure the hues complement one other.
