I personally think the ideal fall outfit perfectly marries fashion and function. Meaning: Layering is key. Some of the chicest autumn ensembles out there work flawlessly because they feature of-the-moment pieces all layered together in an effort to keep warm. While there are classic and timeless layering outfits—like a tee mixed with a cardigan, and perhaps a coat on top—there are actually a few key outfits I saved on IG that I think are particularly out of the ordinary.

The looks in question are all forward in nature and feel especially relevant. Due to this, I also think said outfits could earn you compliments thanks to their more creative feel. I’m talking about everything from ensembles that feature sweaters tied around blazers to those that highlight trendy pieces like sweater vests. Keep scrolling for a few fall layering outfit ideas, complete with shopping inspiration. Hey, you may just earn a compliment or two after testing out one of the solid looks ahead.

This vibe feels very "right now" with the sweater vest on top of a shirtdress, complete with knee-high boots. Simply toss on a shacket or a blazer for another layer.
