Add textures

Textures are perfect for autumn, and Giedre knows it. A patterned blouse pairs perfectly with dark khaki leather pants.

Throw on a cardigan

Everyone loves a good cardigan, and Giedre is no exception. Throwing on a neutral-colored cardigan over a dark shirt magically transitions this classic outfit into one perfect for autumn. Black leather shoes that match her handbag and a scarf around the neck are the perfect accent pieces for this outfit. 

Fall wardrobe
Cozy layers

It wouldn’t be fall if comfort wasn’t a top priority. There’s just something about this season that makes a person want to wrap up in a cozy blanket. Giedre translates that feeling into an outfit by adding layers. A big, comfy sweatshirt under an open jacket, both in muted tones, goes perfectly with a pair of baggy gray jeans and white sneakers. A patterned handbag adds interest to this outfit that screams fashionable comfort. 

Fall clothing
Back-to-work vibe

Giedre demonstrates that even a summer dress can be perfect for fall. By switching out the white sneakers she would normally wear with a polka-dotted dress to black leather loafers, she manages to make this dress work. A blazer and a pretty belt that matches her handbag and glasses really take this look from business to casual. 

How to create fall looks
Chunky footwear

Who would have thought that a good pair of chunky shoes is all that would be needed to transition an outfit to autumn?! Giedre demonstrates how well her chunky sneakers pair with a classic sweater-and-jeans look in this beautifully simple outfit. 

Black outfit for fall
Swap for black

White is perfect for summer, but as the weather starts to get cooler, black is the way to go. By throwing on a black hoodie and black shoes, Giedre’s outfit is instantly transformed from cool to warm.
