We talk a lot about trends here at Who What Wear. Boot trends, bag trends, denim trends, dress trends, sweater trends—you name it. But something we’d like to point out is that there are outfit trends to think about too. Certain outfit combinations and styling tricks seem to catch on like wildfire among the fashion crowd, and inevitably, everyone else follows suit.
With fall inching nearer, there are tons of outfit trends to spot, and we combed through and chose some of the biggest ones to put on your radar (if they aren’t already). These cozy looks are perfect for this time of year, so you could feasibly start wearing them this week. You may not even have to buy anything, but if you do, we’ve shopped out the key piece you’ll need for each, as we do.
Scroll away for a slew of outfit ideas to see you through to winter.
Knit Dress + Mules
In case you haven’t heard, knit dresses are one of fall’s most popular dress trends, and wearing one with sleek mules happens to be a simple outfit trend too.
