With Fall comes the opportunity to layer up, to experiment with different, richer colors and to wear interesting textures. While it’s easy to be swayed by all of the party wear when the new season hits the stores, this article concentrates on casual outfits. Learn how you can look stylish everyday during Fall, with a capsule wardrobe of casual fall outfits curated from Nordstrom…
Casual fall outfits
Nordstrom is your one-stop shop where you can get ready for all your casual fall outfits this year. There are many brands to choose from from budget to designer brands.
What should you consider when putting together your casual fall outfits?
If the weather is cooling down where you are, you’ll need to think about practicality as well as style. Choose longer sleeves, layers and cozy knits.
While you don’t want to be a slave to fashion, keeping an eye on the latest trends can inspire you to add a few new things to your closet or change how you wear what you already have. Some of the key trends this fall are bright colors, bold prints and luxurious sportswear.
For day-to-day, you’re unlikely to want to wear heels for any length of time. Look out for flat boots and sneakers.

Choose casual items that you can either dress up or down so you can also wear some of your choices for work or dinner.
tops for your casual fall outfits
When it comes to your Fall tops, a classic white shirt is always a good option as you can layer under your sweaters, dresses or jumpsuits. You can also look out for sleeveless options, so long as you have a cardigan to wear over the top. Plus, ruched choices will be figure flattering as they help to hide any “imperfections”. Plaid and checks are always on trend for Fall.

Cardigans and sweaters
Onto some cozy knitwear. Choose bright colors to incorporate some of Fall’s eye-catching shades. The Barefoot Dreams cardigan (below, right) is a popular choice for days at home or casual weekends. You could also look for cardigans that double as coats (as long as it’s not raining), and sweaters with some draping at the neck, if you want a slightly dressier look.

Jackets and coats
With some of the stylish coats to choose from at the moment, you may be pleased that the temperature is dropping. A short jacket is a great layering piece and black will go with almost everything. Shackets (shirt-jacket hybrids) are also still on trend and you may want a warmer padded jacket depending on the weather where you are.
Plus, if you want a smarter option, you could choose a long, belted coat that you can wear with everything from your sweaters, jeans and sneakers to your dresses.

jeans and pants for casual fall outfits
Jeans are always a versatile choice for any season. Darker shades suit the season. Wide leg jeans are particularly on trend, but skinnies and jeggings also work well if you want to tuck them into knee-high boots.
You could also think about a print, or a bright shade, and keep the rest of your outfit relatively simple.

Dresses and skirts
Just because this article features casual options, that doesn’t mean you have to forego your dresses and skirts. You could choose sweater dresses to stay warm and cozy. Plus, anything in leather is very on trend right now. You can also dress down more formal options by wearing with booties or flats and your moto jacket.

shoes and boots
You’ll want to concentrate on flat and low heels for your casual capsule. It’s best to have a pair of booties as well as a pair of knee-high boots as you can wear these with different outfits. A pair of sneakers will add casual flair to any look. Also, if you do want to look a little smarter while still being comfortable, you could opt for a pair of flat loafers.

You can have some fun with your accessories this Fall. For your handbags, look for choices that you can fit your day-to-day essentials in, and while fit with the casual look of your outfit. Hobos, backpacks and crossbodies work well.
You can add this season’s color trends with your scarf or hats, and add some texture with faux fur or tassels.
