6 Styling Hacks for Your Fall Wardrobe

Street style babes serve up all kind of inspiration.

Call me biased because of my name, but fall is unequivocally my favorite season. Maybe it’s the Goldie Locks effect. Summer is too hot and winter is, well, you get the idea. The season serves up optimal weather for layering making it possible to wear pretty much anything with ease. On top of all that, fall (with a little help from the thick and beautiful September issues) unloads a truck-load of new key pieces and trends that leave me with a euphoric case of fashion whiplash. Basically, it’s the season made for styling. But if you are anything like me, you don’t have a lot of spare dollar bills lying around to go buy fall’s new key pieces. Enter Instagram’s most stylish super girls serving up all the inspiration our poor fall wardrobe needs. Get out your pen and paper because these are the fall style hacks you need to know.

We all love throwing a bit of comfort into a cool chic look. This fall, trade in your jeans for a pair of track pants (bonus tip: add a pair of heels for an even more unexpected twist).

Like I said earlier, fall is prime time for layering. Take that vintage band tee you wore all summer into the new season by layering it over a weather  appropriate turtleneck.

Take your outfit to the next level with one of the best trends to come out of this season - hyper-exaggerated sleeves. Whether it's with a button-down or sweater, the play with proportions will jazz up any look.

When the wind gets chilly, nothing is better than some luxe faux fur to throw on. Plus, it takes even the most basic outfit to a whole new place. Functional, fashionable, AND fierce? Yes, please.

Quite possibly the coolest accessory for fall are these nerdy grandpa glasses. Not only will they make you look smarter - and a bit quirky - but they will serve up some serious Gucci vibes.

Take a cue from our very own Xenia Klein this season by doing what can be coined as inverse layering. Instead of throwing a button-down over your slip, layer it under and tuck it all into some classic high-waist jeans, and you will be so ready for fall.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
