10 Cute and Cozy Layering Options for Fall

The much-welcomed arrival of fall has everything going for it, from the changing of leaves and the snug warmth of knitwear to pumpkin-spiced everything. It’s also a golden chance to wear your favorite clothes all at once – it’s layering season, after all! If you want to wear a tee, a shirt or sweatshirt, a scarf and a jacket at the same time, go ahead!

However, when putting on that many layers, things can get frumpier than intended. To avoid looking like you’re wearing everything you own, here are a few handy styles to make sure you layer up properly this season.

1. Longline Shirt from HOTPINGHOTPING - Longline Shirt

The combination of a long shirt (or shirtdress) over jeans is quite easy to pull off. Just make sure you have a slick button-up that gives dimension to your look. Even if this all-white number is long enough to wear with just sneakers, a pair of jeans would add exciting volume!

2. Print Chunky Sweater from LEELINLEELIN - Print Chunky Sweater

There isn’t an official “must layer with shirts” rule with chunky sweaters, but shouldn’t there be one already? The cozy oversized silhouette aside, this sweater’s eye-catching motif and soothing pastel hue make it a good choice to break up the sea of dark winter shades in my closet.

3. Maxi Turtleneck Knit Dress with Side Slit from OntheriverHOTPING - Longline Shirt

I can never own enough sweaters, so I’m treating myself to a few new ones this season. This maxi black turtleneck is easy to match with just about anything. Team it with over-the-knee boots so you don’t show off too much skin. Or simply pair it with dress pants for work.

4. Open-Back Slipdress from LemongrassLemongrass - Open-Back Slipdress

Often overlooked during fall, the sultry slipdress is actually an easy number to layer with. You can wear an unbuttoned blouse on top; pair it with a long sweater underneath and spice things up with heels; or even liven it up with a camo print jacket on top!

5. Crop Denim Jacket from DABAGIRLDABAGIRL - Crop Denim Jacket

A slim denim jacket is another cool and effortless way to add layers and structure to a look. A versatile piece that will last for years, this denim jacket boasts a crop length and straight fit, making it a prime candidate to wear underneath a coat or puffer jacket.

6. Fuzzy Cardigan with Oversized Pockets from mimi&didimimi&didi - Fuzzy Cardigan with Oversized Pockets

Cardigans are also a fun layering option that guarantee warmth and coziness. The collarless design means they go well with your favorite button-up worn underneath. The fuzzy knit lends plenty of textural appeal.

7. High-Waist Print Skirt with Side Slit from PPGIRLPPGIRL - High-Waist Print Skirt with Side Slit

I love having a high-waist, vintage-inspired skirt as part of my everyday wardrobe. With its flattering shape and eye-catching print allover, this midi is great with tucked-in chunky knits. A flirty wrap skirt is always my go-to for the work week or dressier occasions, but when I want to dress my outfit down, this print midi will do the trick.

8. Plaid Scarf from DigesidaDigesida - Plaid Scarf

Don’t forget to get an oversized scarf as the cute and cozy finishing touch to layered looks. The tonal plaid pattern means it’ll easily blend into any outfit.

9. Block-Heel Over-The-Knee Boots from DABAGIRLDABAGIRL - Block-Heel Over-The-Knee Boots

Don’t we all love the look of tall boots! With going overboard, these over-the-knee booties hug your legs and show off their shapes while keeping them warm and covered. They’re also flirty and fun to team with shorter skirts and offset high slits!

10. Boxy Handbag from MERONGSHOPMERONGSHOP - Boxy Handbag

Layering with knits and sweatshirts can be pretty casual, so it helps to have a classic boxy bag to glam up the everyday looks. The gold-tone detail and structured top handle add sophistication. Maybe mix and match with more gold jewelry?
