Fall Classic Outfits- Ideas & Inspiration!

1. camel coat + sweater + cropped flared jeans + ankle boots
Not many things elevate a wardrobe more than a camel coat. Though I love neutrals, sometimes it’s fun to throw in a pop of red, because camel and red are a seriously great color combo!

2. basic tee + long cardigan + cropped jeans + loafers
A long soft cardigan makes this “basic” look a lot cozier! In fall, a great way to elevate simple looks is to throw a long cardigan over whatever you’re wearing.

3. midi sweater + tall boots + wool blazer + silk scarf
In a world of ankle boots, I love breaking out my taller boots every once in a while. It’s a very chic look when paired with a midi sweater dress! When looking for tall boots, I look for ones with a small heel, because I think it looks just a little bit classier.

4. trench coat + sweater + cropped jeans + ankle boots
Trench coat=classic style. I have many in all different lengths and shades of neutrals. If you’re tired of beige, go for one in blue or black. Still has wardrobe maximizing potential, but a little different than the browns you see everywhere!

5. oversized blazers + basic tee + cropped jeans + ankle boots
An oversized blazer with slim-fitting jeans is a great combo because it mixes feminine and masculine. With the sleeves pushed up, it gives off super classic and chic vibes while also looking casual at the same time.

6. trench coat + basic tee + cropped jeans + loafers
This may be the most simple look out of the bunch, with just 4 pieces, but it does not disappoint. It’s a canvas if you want to add to it with accessories, but it also stands great on its too. Go-to uniform, anyone?!

I’m in my mid 20’s with a somewhat older readership on my blog, but what I love about classic style is that it’s for every age and stage of life! My mom (who I won’t reveal her age 😉 ) has a fabulous camel coat that I’ve tried to buy from her for years and she just won’t sell it. Which I applaud her for because she should hold on to it. Whether you’re 20 or 80, everyone can benefit from having these classic pieces in their wardrobe!
