Use these fall outfit formulas to help you get dressed easily in the morning.
It’s time to say goodbye to your trusty sweatpants and step up your style game. This fall, we’re making it easy for moms and grandmas to feel polished without putting in hours of effort.
Studio 5 Style Editor Daylan Dove shares four simple fall outfit formulas that you’ll want to copy, and they can all be put together from items already in your closet.
4 Fall Outfit Formulas
Why is it that mom fashion often feels like an arduous task? The answer is simple: we women, especially moms and grandmas, tend to put everyone else’s needs before our own. By the time we get to ourselves, we’re stuck in our closets, feeling overwhelmed by choices and lack of time. But we’re going to simplify this process with four outfit formulas.
1. Denim on Denim
Do you love the Canadian tuxedo look, or are you hesitant to embrace the denim-on-denim trend? This outfit formula consists of a denim top paired with a basic tee and denim bottoms. If head-to-toe denim feels like too much, try a lighter denim top with darker denim bottoms. Invest in a good denim jacket; it’s a timeless piece that’s here to stay.
This formula is all about timeless style. You’ll need a pair of jeans, a classic button-up shirt, a layering piece (like a sweater), and, for a trendy twist, loafers. Button-up shirts are versatile and can be paired with any color of jeans. As the weather shifts, layer the sweater to stay warm. Loafers add a modern touch while maintaining a classic look.
You might be surprised to hear this, but cargo pants are back in fashion, and they’re better than ever. Pair a statement pant like cargo pants or parachute cargo pants with a basic tee. Top it off with comfortable sneakers or loafers. For added warmth or style, consider a hat, especially for those dry shampoo days.
Fall fashion doesn’t have to be all about neutrals. Challenge yourself by playing with bold colors like green and pink. To make this look work, pair a green top with pink bottoms or vice versa. Green and pink are color wheel opposites, which creates a vibrant contrast. A hint of moody fuchsia in the pink adds a fall-appropriate twist. This outfit formula is perfect for date nights or a casual outing with your friends. You can tone it down with sneakers and minimal accessories for a more relaxed look.
These outfit formulas aren’t just about looking good; they’re about feeling good. You deserve to step out feeling polished and put-together, even when you’re short on time or energy. So, as you transition into fall, don’t hesitate to experiment with colors, statement pieces, and classic combos. We hope these outfit formulas make your daily routine a little more effortless.
