5 Chic Fall Outfit Ideas

The first official day of Fall is September 22nd and Shift StyleHouse is bringing you the best modern and chic pieces for your Fall wardrobe early! Make sure to check out our New Fall 2021 Arrivals and start planning your fall wardrobe today. If you love any of the outfit ideas, make sure to pin them to your Fall Fashion Pinterest boards if you're on Pinterest and don’t forget to follow us as well! 


Fall fashion is also code for “figuring out how to layer” without looking overstuffed. It’s also the best time to use your Summer stylish pieces in Fall. If you live in warmer climates, check out our Summer to Fall transition Blog post for some light layering clothing ideas for Fall. 


This season, Shift StyleHouse is all about being chic but casual and we're going to show you how to easily recreate chic and casual fall outfits with minimal effort.


We've also thrown in some product links within this post to help you find exactly the styles you need quicker and add them straight to your cart from this post. We’ll even throw in some quick styling tips and accessories trends, so you'll be ready for whatever this fall season throws at you! Let’s get started.

 1.The Poplin Dress | Chic Fall Dresses

The Poplin style dress is our fall favorite and a must- have versatile piece for your fall 2021 wardrobe! Poplin, also known as tabbinet, is a plain-weave cotton fabric with very fine horizontal “ribs,” or yarns, that results in a strong, crisp fabric with a silky, lustrous surface. 


 Pair a poplin dress with a cute pair of booties or sneakers for a more relaxed and casual fall look. For a chic occasion style, pair your poplin dress with a cardigan and your favorite pair of heels. You cannot go wrong with this versatile dress. Here are our favorite fall outfits featuring poplin dresses (pictured above).

 2. The Black Sheer Top | Chic Fall Tops Ideas

Sheer fabric is everywhere this fall season and we’re especially loving the black sheer look. A sheer fabric is a thin cloth which is semi-transparent so you get the benefit of covering up and showing some skin at the same time. The most popular sheer tops this season are sheer lace and sheer mesh tops. Check out some of our favorite fall outfits including sheer black tops above.


Depending on the style of your go-to black sheer top style, you’ll need to pair a basic cami or cute bralette underneath to complete the look. Add some high waisted jeans and a pair of heels for a night out look. Get bold with colors and place a bold color cami, or bralette, under your black sheer top and match the under layer piece with the same color handbag!

 3. All Things Ruffles | Chic Fall Outfit Ideas

Have you checked out all the looks from this summer’s New York Fashion week for Fall 2021 fashion trends? Well, there were a lot of tops and dresses that had one feature in common, the ruffle, or layered look! 


A ruffle top makes you look a little more chic, flirty and fierce. Ruffled tops are also easy to dress up or down and you don’t really need to layer these tops if you live in warmer climates for autumn. 


Unlike plain tops, ruffle tops are more striking, bolder and make you look absolutely fresh all year long. The picture above are all the outfits we are loving this fall season that incorporate layered looks on tops or tops with ruffles.

 4. Faux Fur Trims | Chic Fall Outfit Ideas

You’re probably already aware that 2021 was the comeback of early 2000s styles and we’re loving the nostalgia. For fall, the faux-fur cardigans are making a huge comeback. ​​Faux-fur is also known as pile fabric, which is engineered to have the appearance and warmth of animal fur.

 Our favorite outfits with faux-fur trims are faux-fur long sleeved cardigans tucked into mini skirts or high-waisted jeans.

 5. Thin Ribbed Knits | Chic Fall Tops Outfit Ideas

Our last, but not least, favorite fall outfits for 2021 are thin ribbed sweaters or cardigans. If you live in warmer climates, thin ribbed knits are a perfect fall staple to own so you can participate in fall fashion but not sweat because of heavy layering! 


Rib knit or sometimes called ribbing has raised vertical textured lines and is created using a double bed knitting machine that has two needles with vertical textured lines. Here’s on our Pinterest Fall Fashion board for thin ribbed knits.


We love pairing bold and cute accessories with minimalistic tops. Add more focus to your thin ribbed knit by pairing it with a chunky gold necklace or statement earrings to draw in the neckline.
