Before we jump in, let's remember that you should always (repeat: always) wear whatever you love and feel confident in—despite any fashion "rules" out there. On that note, celebrities seem to be particularly on board with this philosophy. Whether they're stepping out in their off-duty life or on the red carpet, they simply wear what works best for them. And that's that.
For those casual fall outfits specifically, there are actually seven fashion "mistakes" A-listers such as Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, and Gigi Hadid seem to disregard completely. But naturally, they all totally work in their own way. Keep scrolling to check out the fall-fashion "don'ts" celebs are ignoring, and shop their key autumn essentials if you're looking to push the sartorial boundaries a bit as well.
On Priyanka Chopra: Max Mara coat; Nili Lotan sweater; Lorod skirt; Pierre Hardy boots; Louis Vuitton bag
Going the matchy-matchy route used to be a big "don't" in the fashion book, but the monochromatic vibe is actually quite forward. This fall, step it up a notch with big and bold colors like the red tones here.
Shop a skirt-and–ankle boot combo:
Topshop Red Satin Skirt ($55)
& Other Stories Ankle Boots ($179)
Socks are a funny thing. You might not think much about them, but they can make or break your outfit. Typically, the no-show sock look or a longer crew style would fit best here for a cool silhouette, but Jenner proves that a peek of a white athletic sock can actually feel quite forward and unique.
Shop cool shoes and socks:
Dr. Martens 1461 Bex 3 Eye Shoes ($130)
Hanes Athletic Socks ($10)
Sure, you might see the all-black look a lot, but many view it as a "safe" or "boring" choice. That said, Beckham proves that if you play with texture and fabric and choose sophisticated separates (sleek outerwear, pumps, and the like), the vibe more than works.
Shop black must-haves:
H&M Oversized Shirt Jacket ($60)
Sam Edelman Margie Pumps ($120)
On Hailey Bieber: Jacquemus suit; Off-White Nike Air Force 1 sneakers; Celine sunglasses
Yes, tailoring is typically ideal for a streamlined and balanced suiting vibe, but the oversize, baggy silhouette is actually where it's at this season. We love how Bieber took it one step further here and opted for unexpected sneakers with her suit rather than standard heels.
Shop suiting and sneakers:
Heartmade Jilva Blazer ($555)
Heartmade Niva Pants ($333)
Nike Air Max 95 SE Shoes ($170)
On Gigi Hadid: Gigi Hadid x Vogue Eyewear sunglasses
When you think about the best shoes to wear with leggings, sneakers, ankle boots, and slides probably come to mind first. Well, as Hadid is showcasing here, pushing the boundaries and going for an out-there style like cowboy boots is the way to go because they bring an of-the-moment spin to classic leggings.
Shop leggings and cowboy boots:
Daily Ritual Ponte Knit Leggings ($20)
Jeffrey Campbell Calvera Tall Western Boots ($295)
On Joan Smalls: Karl Lagerfeld sweatshirt; Alexander Wang Lyndon Combat Boots ($850)
Sweats and sneakers go together like peanut butter and jelly. But casual pants and statement moto boots is an athleisure combo you don't tend to spot as much. However, if you take a cue from Smalls here, the look is ideal for those days when you want to come across as laid-back with loose pants and a crew-neck but still fashion-forward with cool boots and other accessories.
Shop casual pants and boots:
ASOS Design Utility Pants ($60)
Schutz Andrea Combat Boots ($275)
On Katie Holmes: Chanel bag; Gianvito Rossi boots
Typically, blazers are left either undone or with just the top button buttoned. But if you want your favorite blazer to feel fresh for 2019, try buttoning all the buttons to make it feel like an alternative to a top as Holmes did here.
Shop sleek blazers:
1.State Ruched Sleeve Blazer ($139)
Mango Blazer ($80)
