When it comes to putting together a killer outfit, there's truly no better time of year for getting dressed than fall. Autumn weather is prime time for getting our creative juices flowing and experimenting with layers. It's not so cold that we need to be fully bundled up at all times, yet it's chilly enough to wear our favorite pieces without breaking a sweat.
What makes for a chic autumnal ensemble worth showing off, you ask? All of our favorite outerwear trends such as leather trench coats and oversize blazers; warm, go-with-everything neutrals; a few pops of color and prints; and plenty of cozy-yet-polished knits.
I scoured my feed and rounded up the most photogenic fall outfits of 2021 to give you a bit of sartorial inspiration. Keep scrolling to check out my favorite looks and to shop the pieces for yourself.
