Style Ideas for Fall

It’s (usually) always the same. A grandmother or an aunt who is older will always make sure we receive at least one sweater for Christmas. They can look so outdated that it is hard to know what you should do with them.

Perhaps they are giving us flashbacks of the past. Mister Roger’s Neighbourhood.

It could be because they are often so outdated.

It could be that we are unable to find a way to make the products work with our own personal style.

It’s great if you can fit into one of these categories. Here are some ways to make your cardigans work for you during the fall season. The latest fall fashion below.

1. Grey cardigan with distressed jeans and graphic tank

You don’t necessarily have to pack up your summer clothing. Not quite yet. Don’t put those graphic tanks into your garage until the next year. You can cover it with a cardigan, preferably one that is long. It doesn’t matter how cold it is outside.

2. Polyvore outfits for Fall – Violet cardigan with grey fitted T-shirt and flare jeans

In fashion magazines and blogs, you’ll see a lot of slate this year. The word slate is a synonym for grey. We don’t believe it is too dark for fall. You can make it look sexy if you pair it with the right clothing and another colour. Violet is one of the most beautiful colors.

3. Trendy Polyvore Outfits Fall/Winter – Plum cardigan with cream T-shirt and jeans

There is a misconception that white clothing should not be worn in the winter and fall. It’s not true that you can’t wear white in the winter months. In fact, cream is the perfect shade. This shade of plum is a warmer purple than violet.

4. Fall outfits for Work – White collared shirt, black button down cardigan and dark flare pants

Here is just one way to wear a cardigan at work. What’s more? White shirts have been in fashion all year long and a cardigan can help to complement your figure—even more so when you tie a belt around it. What about black and white? Classic. It is not necessary to be able to speak.

5. Casual Fall Outfits – Grey cardigan, plum camisole and jeans

You’ve seen several ways to combine grey and purple. This one was added to the mix because the purse and shoes are also nude. It’s possible you never thought to combine them, but just look how well they work together.

6. Polyvore outfit Ideas for Fall – Olive cardigan, white tank and blue jeans

How to get alone with your favorite cardigan and sneakers. When the weather is warmer, wear a cardigan made of cotton rather than wool. If you are wearing something khaki, olive green or similar, your purse should be something different. This will allow for more visual creativity.

7. Polyvore clothing collections – Long navy cardigan, white tank and flare jeans

Cardigans that are long look amazing. These cardigans are not only stylish, but can “fashionably” hide any parts of your lower body that may make you feel insecure. Wear flats or wedges if your jeans have a flare. If your jeans are boot-cut, yeah…boots.

8. Autumn outfits polyvore – Long navy cardigan, grey lace tank and distressed blue jeans

Another navy and gray example. Even if you have tank tops that are dressier, you can—and should—still try them out with a cardigan. (What do you think of those ankle boots?)

The long cardigan is one of the most brilliant inventions ever. It is so elegant and seductive, in an almost inexplicable way. A long grey cardigan looks great on top of an outfit if you like to wear black in the fall and winter. The same goes for a white purse!

In the fall, plaid prints are very rustic and welcoming. This shirt is a plaid shirt that can be worn under a cardigan. It almost looks like pajama bottoms (we know). Remember that most prints are so “busy” and “crowded” that a cardigan can basically be any colour you like.

If you have to go to the supermarket (or the mall), wear a V-neck t-shirt from your boyfriend or a pair of fitted jeans, then slap on a cardigan. It should be “full” enough to pass for a coat. You don’t have to worry about your boots matching perfectly. You don’t need to match your boots if you are wearing neutrals.

17. Taupe cardigan with jean shirt and black leggings
