Invest in a fur jacket or vest to instantly glam up your autumn looks. Follow in the style footsteps of Stella from Stella Wants To Die and top off your look with a casual beanie.

Oversized Scarves

Stay bundled up this season in an oversize scarf such as the plaid one worn by Monica of Mes Voyages A Paris. It looks great layered over a sweater, T-shirt, dress, jacket or cape.

Exposed Socks

Hike up your knee-high socks under a pair of riding boots the way Vanessa of Fashion Gal & A Fireman did to show off this layer. You can keep it neutral, or add a pop of excitement to your look with a brightly colored or printed sock.

Skirts over Pants

4 / 14


Pants under a skirt—who knew? Never say no to a layering trend until you try it. This season, ditch the tights and leggings for an unexpected look like the one Daniella of LellaVictoria wears. The secret is to choose separates from the same color palette to create a cohesive outfit. It's a look that's undone yet preppy.

Chambray Collars and Cuffs

5 / 14


When looking to layer, a chambray or denim shirt pairs with anything and everything. It's a great staple item to wear under other tops as Mariann of Cashmere In Style did or to wear as the final layer over a graphic tee.

Coat over Shoulders

One of the chicest ways to wear your coat this season is to not wear your coat. Simply place your coat or jacket on your shoulders. We love this easy yet sophisticated look by Aimee of the blog Song of Style.

Jessica of Bow & Sequins isn't putting away her sleeveless dresses just yet. Keep your spring and summer dresses wearable by layering a turtleneck under them.

Sweater over a Dress

Another tip to get more wear from your summer dresses is to layer a chunky sweater over them. Coury of Fancy Treehouse is a perfect example of this. Plus, we love how she added a wool fedora for fall.

Shearling is one of the trendiest layering fabrics for fall. Try a shearling jacket or vest like the one Jessie of Seams For Desire chose as the final layer to this fall look.

A vest is the perfect transitional piece to take you from summer to fall and to bundle up in when winter hits. Vests can layer over almost anything—sweaters, T-shirts, dresses. You name it—you can probably wear a vest with it. We love how Krystin of Suburban Faux Pas mixed her prints for a stylish fall outfit.

Oversized Sweaters

13 / 14


Keep your look undone and casual by layering with oversize sweaters as Maria of Portable Package did. Oversize sweaters pair with jeans or skirts or over dresses. Be sure to keep the rest of your look fitted.

Double Jackets

Sometimes one jacket just isn't enough, so why not layer multiple toppings such as a denim jacket with a wool coat? This look worn by Julie of Sincerely, Jules has stylish dimension. Another style tip: Rock your Nike sneakers with your outfits for a cool kid look.
