How to Style Your Wardrobe for Fall 2022

Fall Favorites You Already Have in Your Closet

As the leaves turn colors and the air feels crisp, it’s time to take out those beloved fall jackets and fall sweaters from the back of your closet. At BCBGMAXAZRIA, Fall 2022 is all about the classics: blazers, chunky sweaters, tailored outerwear and tall boots. It may sound like there’s nothing new or innovative to these basics, but the trend lies in how you style them. This allows you to take your current cold weather closet rotation and reimagine it in refreshing (and maybe even unexpected) new ways. Since you probably already have the essentials in your closet, you can save your splurges for fun styling pieces that take your look to the next level.

Coats & Jackets

In Your Closet: Blazers

Style with: Cosabella Intimates

When it comes to women’s fall coats and jackets, there’s nothing more classic than a blazer. This season, try layering your go-to blazer over intimates, like a corset top, bustier or bodysuit. The pairing may seem daring but intimates are more than delicate lingerie for behind closed doors. Take inspiration from fashion houses like Dolce & Gabbana who’ve been using sheer lace on their ready-to-wear runways for years. Our BCBGMAXAZRIA X Cosabella collection offers more than your typical lingerie, featuring pieces that are meant to be seen, like bandeaus and cropped bralettes. Take our Leigh Cropped Corset Bustier or our Delaney Underwire Teddy and top with a tailored blazer and a high-waisted, wide-leg trouser to create a chic, polished look.

In Your Closet: Tailored Coats

Style with: Feminine Skirts

It’s a no-brainer to pair a classic fall coat with trousers, jeans or leggings, but this fall we’re loving a coat over a long, flowy skirt. Pair your outerwear classics with midis or maxis so the silhouette contrasts the slim line of the jacket. Try an A-line skirt style that’s fitted at the waist, flared at the hip and hits below the knee or pick a floor-length maxi that swirls when you walk (just like falling leaves!). The unexpected pairing of a tailored fall jacket with a soft, feminine skirt creates a unique balance that’s super chic.

Loungewear

In Your Closet: Lounge Sets

Style with: Feather Accessories

We haven’t let go of our pandemic-era loungewear just yet, but we’re ready to style our comfy sets in new and fun ways. And with laid-back street style still going strong on the sidewalks and the runways, we know effortless loungewear is here to stay. So it’s time to add a playful, maximalist twist to our sweatshirts and joggers. That’s why this year, we’re remixing the trend with bold feather accessories. Think of it as day-to-night dressing that takes you from your couch to the club. Like a vintage graphic tee paired with a glamorous red lip, this look channels effortless chic. Create your own maximalist look by mixing colors and textures in eclectic and unexpected ways. For example, pair a gray cashmere lounge set with black feather heels, and don’t stop there: add a red feather clutch. 

In Your Closet: Cozy Sweaters

Style with: Bright Pants

With their warm and cozy appeal, fall sweaters are a must-have for the season. Chic cashmere, chunky cable knits and wool cardigans are forever classics that have stood the test of time. For a fresh take on this staple, try pairing them with a bright flared or wide-leg trouser. We love a neutral, light gray sweater over bold pants in bright red, vivid blue or hot pink. Keep the look extra sophisticated by choosing a luxe, modern silhouette for the pants. 

Our current fave has a high-waist, a wide-leg and even some pleated detailing. If the pants have belt loops, add a chic statement belt to accentuate the waist and keep the silhouette extra feminine. For casual elegance, add a white sneaker or a heeled bootie. You’ll look polished and put-together for work or play. 

Shoes

In Your Closet: Boots & Booties

Style with: Maxi Dresses

Fall booties are the essential shoe this time of year, that forever classic that’s always in style. You can wear them for any type of event and any time of day, to your 9-to-5 and into off-duty hours. This year, instead of pairing your tall boots or ankle booties with leggings and jeans, try wearing them with a maxi dress. You may associate maxi dresses with summer, but they’re actually a great transitional piece for fall. Think of them as the ultimate layering item, perfect under a leather jacket or blazer, and equally perfect over a turtleneck or long sleeve tee. But no matter how you’re styling your maxi, a chic boot is the ultimate accessory to complete the look. Try a pointed-toe silhouette that peeks out from under your skirt with every step, a striking metallic heel or a lace-up design. 

The moral of the story: you don't have to invest in all-new pieces to feel current this season. Instead, focus on the essentials in your current closet and remix them in creative ways. You’ll look and feel like you have a fresh new wardrobe, just right for fall 2022. Looking for more Fall 2022 fashion trends? Discover which colors are trending in autumn outfits.
