How to Dress Up a Laidback Fall Outfit

Sweater weather is the best weather. But sometimes it can leave us feeling a little frumpy, although incredibly comfortable.

If you're heading out for a night on the town or dashing off to a formal event, we're here to say you can have it all: comfort and class.

Scroll through the fashion tips below to add some style to your oh-so-comfy sweat suit:

Wear a Trench Over a Sweatshirt

Pick a sweatshirt that has something to offer, whether it's a cute design or an impressive logo. Add formal flair with a slick trench or peacoat. Classy yet cozy!


Snuggle Up With Faux Fur

Faux fur is in this fall. This snuggly jacket looks just as good over a dress and tights as it does over a tee and leggings. It's the perfect fashion hack to stay cozy while looking like a vintage dream.

Add a Heel

Who says you can't wear stilettos with sweat pants? A sleek track pant or slim sweats can level up easily with a cute pair of heels.

Show Off a Bold Pattern

An interesting outer layer will dress up anything underneath it. Instead of changing out of your tee and leggings, just add a bold pattern with your coat, jacket or scarf.


Apply a Colorful Lip

Even a casual outfit could do with a colorful lip. Any shade, from classic reds to deep purples, will instantly dress up any cozy look.

Sneakers Are the New Black

Pretty much any outfit these days can be worn with a pair of trainers. Keep your feet feeling happy and your outfit looking sharp by adding a flashy sneaker.


When in Doubt, Leather Jacket

Belt It

Oversized shirts and coats are super comfortable, but unfortunately, a little on the frumpy side. Sharpen the look by wrapping it up with a belt.

Add Statement Accessories

A statement necklace will take that knit sweater up a notch. But hats, necklaces, or even an impressive bag will all add a fancier flair to your sweater or sweatshirt.

Power of the Skirt

A little skirt can go a long way. Midi skirts are in this fall but you can also try playing with different textures like pleather or velvet. Pair the skirt with a slouchy sweater and you have a classy fall outfit for any occasion.
