Transitioning to Fall: Sweaters Edition

Whether you’re already starting to feel the fall chill or waiting for some sort of cool down like us Californians, there’s plenty of sweater inspired outfits that I’m ready to start wearing.

Layering in Southern California is pretty minimal compared to the snowy parts of the rest of the world but that’s no excuse for us not to get in on the sweater fun! I’m here to give you some fashionable and simple outfit ideas that can give you a head start into the new season.

Starting off with a classic combo, a simple horizontal over-sized sweater can be paired with some liquid leggings to give it a more edgy look. A nice round wool scarf in a neutral color doesn’t make the outfit look over the top. Pair it with some tan thick heeled booties and there’s an outfit for day and night.


The second outfit might be for those who are still having some sunshine in their life. A pair of bright colored shorts with a black and white sweater can be the perfect everyday fit. As the nights get cooler, adding some black knee high socks can be the finishing touch.

My other favorite pairing would be a maxi skirt and a sweater. The sparkles woven into this sweater are not too much as they are on a neutral surface and contrast with the dark bottoms. Adding a simple long necklace can play up the outfit and keep you from looking frumpy.

Not super into accessories? That’s ok because detailed collars are all the rage right now. Get a simple oversized sweater and pair it with a collared shirt. Your specific choice on the detailing of the collar can make your whole outfit. Like the one shown below! I decided to keep the attention on the sequined collar by pairing it with black skinny jeans and boots.

Earth toned tribal prints can scream fall! The thicker material on the dress below keeps you warmer. Dress? Yes, short body hugging dresses can be worn in the colder seasons by adding thick tights and scarfs. I’m a big fan of just folding some of the material  under and wearing it as a shirt. Layering a nice jean shirt or coat can help you create  new outfit ideas without needing to go out and purchase new clothes.

Now that you’ve seen some of my fall inspired outfits, what are your must have fall choices?
