15 Outfit Ideas for Fall 2022 from Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and More

Don’t get me wrong – dressing for summer just isn’t the same as dressing for fall. With earlier sunsets and a chill in the air, come jeans, boots and comfortable fabrics, from cashmere to suede.

Lightweight linen ensembles and cut-off shorts are pushed to the back of your closets as you start to search for blazers and jackets again. Draped cardigans, grandpa sweater vests and cozy plaid flannel shirts will be back in the chat – the layering options are truly endless. Tweed and corduroy will inevitably have their moments, and all the fabulous fall colors we said goodbye to last winter will appear as naturally as shiny leaves falling to the ground.

If you manage to get through these last difficult weeks, I don’t want to wear anything at all, thank you weather, I promise fall fashion will be worth it. Before you know it, August will be in your rearview mirror with nothing but spooky movie marathons and pumpkin-scented candles on the horizon.

Ahead, take note of these low-key but elevated fall outfit ideas from stylish celebrities like Bella Hadid, Rihanna, and Olivia Rodrigo to inspire your next season.

Wearing a leather jacket with leather boots, as seen here on Bella Hadid, is a surefire way to transform a chic look. Even better? Add eye-catching accessories and knee high socks to spice things up.

Flannel shirts are the epitome of fall. If it’s still warm, wear your favorite with bike shorts (or even a miniskirt) and boots like Barbie Ferreira.

High sweats

When all you want to wear is sweatpants, throw in a chic sweater over it and/or a cool coat with boots. Rihanna could give a masterclass in athleisure clothing.

Baggy jeans have had a big moment lately. Embrace the ’90s skater aesthetic, but pair them with a cute top that offers a bit of contrast, as seen here on Paloma Elsesser.

Mix bright colors

Bright colors are very in right now (read: dopaminergic bandage). There’s no rule that says you can’t wear different shades together, so color block like Adwoa Aboah sporting a pink sweater and a blurry orange bag.

Put on your outfits

Tap into your most sophisticated personality in a sleek suit à la Hailey Bieber. She completed the Sportmax look with camel colored Jimmy Choos, but the ensemble would look just as cool with loafers.

Raise your shoulders

If you grew up in the early 2000s, chances are you own a shrug. The ultra-cropped cardigan can be styled in countless ways – this cut from Emily Ratajkowski is a good source of inspiration.

We are a bold and assertive sweater. Kendall Jenner slipped into a cozy knit with a neutral polka dot print.

Ruffles and whimsical florals aren’t just for summer. Take them with you in the fall like Kaia Gerber did here. The secret is to complete your look with boots instead of sandals for a fall vibe.

Channel Lena Waithe and don a marigold-saturated shirt. Other jewel tones will also work – I’m talking about emerald, sapphire, and dark plum. Any of these shades will instantly make an outfit stand out.

Let’s face it, October will probably look like July (thanks, climate change!), so wear a chic mini dress with boots and you’re set. If it’s hot, put on a jacket or cardigan.

Coordinated color

A matching moment will never ease my poor chaotic soul. Do like Emma Chamberlain when she coordinated her mustard coat with the gum soles of her platform combat boots.

Go retro

Step back to the 50s in a bowling shirt similar to the one Conan Gray wears here. Or, simply tie a bandana around your neck to create a vintage feel.

Intentional shock

Combining prints like stripes and snakeskin (you can go with any contrasting pattern, really) is an easy way to have fun with your look. Example: this outfit on Marsai Martin.

Cool for back to school

Fall will always make me want to wear a plaid pleated skirt. Personally, I’m a huge fan of how Olivia Rodrigo styled hers with a loose jacquard cardigan, creepers and sleek sunglasses.
