Who else is in utter shock that it's almost October? It seems like the Fourth of July was days ago and yet we're already into fall with its crazy, quirky weather and even crazier temperatures.
I don't know about you, but I feel as though fall is the season of comfort. All I want to do is curl up with a hot apple cider in front of a fire while cozied up in a warm plaid blanket. I long to run through corn mazes and find the perfect pumpkin. All those activities require the most comfiest of outfits. I invited some of my blogger friends to join me in sharing how they find comfort in their fall wardrobes. Join us and get some inspiration of your own.

To me, fall is about comfort. It’s the season of hot apple cider and slouchy hats, pumpkin pie and leather boots, farm bought doughnuts and plaid shirts. Plaid is one of my favorite fall trends because it is so easy to wear. A plaid shirt is perfect for coffee dates, hayrides, apple picking, and other fall adventures that come your way.
Doran from Haute Beauty Guide
The best part about fall fashion is the easiness of it. Layers are always chic and cute, hats cover up a bad hair day or a grown out cut and boots don’t require a perfect pedicure! I loved this dress during the late summer and I am glad it transitions easily to fall as a layering piece. It adds texture, color and comfort to a pair of jeans and boots.
Chelsie from Hey There, Chelsie
Fall fashion is all about comfort for me and if I'm not comfortable in my clothes, I'm not doing it right. I find comfort in my fall wardrobe by including staples like chunky sweaters, fleece-lined leggings and lots of scarves to wrap up in!
Jane from Jane's Little Loves
Feeling comfortable during fall months always seems little hard for me, considering I suddenly need more layers and warmer clothes than during summer. My key to be comfortable when also trying to keep warm is sticking with clothes that are my true fit. My fall wardrobe has to feel as it was made for me. Once I find few simple and well-fitting pieces the fall can start because I know I will be comfortable and feel confident!
Justine from Little Dove Blog
As a busy mom comfort is always key, but even more so in the Fall with ever-changing and unpredictable temperatures. Comfortable layers are pretty much essential to my daily wardrobe; a fun graphic tee, a long-sleeved shirt or cardigan thrown over, and maybe top it off with a scarf to help accessorize and add extra warmth if needed. Not only is layering great from a comfort stand-point, but it also helps me have fun with my outfit and feel more put together.
Melanie from Melbee Blog
I love to layer, layer, layer in the fall. I am a chronically cold person so wearing lots of layers and knits keeps me cozy and warm, especially as the weather gets cooler. I also love that fall lends itself well to flat boots, loafers, and tennis shoes, so my feet aren't suffering either. The more pajama and blanket-like my clothes are in the fall-the better!
Megan from No Small Life
Fall beckons us to comfort! It calls us to layer up and curl up in something warm…and preferably new! :D BUT, what if you could take your existing favorite pieces and just tweak the accessories for a year round look? That’s what I’m attempting to do with this post. Transition 1 dress into the fall and back again, just by using what’s already in most of our closets. Why not save a little cash and let the “comfort" that we crave leak over into our bank accounts too ;)
Cassandra from Poppy Anthology
Growing up in Southern California, fall weather was pretty much nonexistent. Now that I live all over the country, I’ve had to learn quickly how to stay warm and stay comfortable while traveling. I love my basics - especially in the cooler months and having a capsule wardrobe ensures that all my clothes are not only comfortable, but they are also clothes that I feel fantastic in. When it comes to comfort though, shoes are my top priority and, in the fall, when I’m not wearing socks with my Birkenstocks, you’ll find me in my favorite sneakers or leather booties during my cooler weather adventures.
Stacia from Pretty Poppy Peony
I'm a summer lover (mostly because I get cold super easily), so I always welcome fall with mixed feelings. During the transition from warmer to cooler weather, I maintain comfort by wearing clothes that can be easily layered - cozy sweaters, for example, that aren't so thick that I can't throw an addition jacket on over them while also being cool enough that I won't overheat if the weather suddenly takes a turn for the warmer (as it is known to do in the South.) Another thing that helps me stay happy and comfortable during the transition to fall is carrying some summery colors in to my fall wardrobe. It'll be a little while before you find me embracing deep fall colors; the summer colors just make me so happy.
Rachel from Rachel Lynn
Fall fashion has always held a special place in my heart because I love to layer. Fall is one of those seasons where it could be 40 degrees in the morning and 87 by noon! For this reason I love to tie a flannel around my waist or a scarf around my neck. It if gets too hot you can always take them off and if it gets a bit chilly they're there for added warmth! The layers add dimension and style to your outfit, but are also extremely practical. Now that's what I call a win-win!
Rebekah from Rebekah Anne Blog
I think fall is the epitome of comfortable fashion! It's perfect for oversized sweaters and leggings and cute boots! Layers are another key fall fashion element that can keep you comfortable. This scarf is a great piece because the outfit looks complete without it, but if I'm outside I definitely need it and it adds a great pop to an otherwise neutral outfit.
Susannah from Simple Moments Stick
Fall is a crazy season - especially in the Pacific Northwest. One moment it's 89 degrees and sunny and the next it's 55 degrees and rainy. There's no knowing what you're supposed to be wearing from one moment to the next. I stay comfortable by making sure I'm ready for whatever the day throws at me. If I'm wearing a t-shirt, I'm always sure to have a cardigan on hand. If I'm wearing a skirt, I ensure that leggings are easily accessable. If I'm wearing a sweatshirt, I make sure the shirt underneath is cute because, chances are, I'm going to have to take the sweatshirt off at some point.
Havalah from Sisters, What!
As fall approaches, I can't help to go back to my favorite outfit that is perfect for when I'm pregnant or not. Thus the perfect fall outfit that helps me maintain comfort include large sweaters and scarfs. When I was pregnant, I discovered men's sweaters at the thrift store. I found a few in excellent condition that I altered to fit me and to the one in this picture I added some leather detail to update it to fit me. The crocheted neutral colored scarf goes with any sweater and is super warm and comfortable, even for he warmer winters of the Pacific Northwest.
Molly from Style Miss Molly
I am all about chic comfort in the fall. No one said you have to sacrifice fashion for comfort. Pairing a large oversized sweater over some leggings screams comfortable and is my go to for fall. By adding some chic accessories like a hat, statement necklace, or trending boots, I am not only comfortable, but also confidently ready to face the fall weather with a smile!
Maegen from The Modern Tulip
I think Fall is the comfiest season of all! I love that you don't have to pack on the layers to stay warm like Winter. To me it's all about accessories in the form of hats, scarves, cardigans, tights and boots! I always invest in a good, comfortable pair of knee high boots because I wear them all season long.
Katie from Warmth & Whimsy
All my favorite fall outfits contain some variation of a sweater. I can’t get enough of them! Sweaters are warm, cozy, and the perfect way to maintain both comfort and style when temperatures start to drop.
Jenn from What You Make It
I looooove fall style (to put it mildly). The colors; the cozy styles; the layers; the shoes - I love it all! I am becoming more of a dress person, especially in my second pregnancy, so I'm loving this cozy dress from Lularoe (thanks Cortney Hughes!). Since I'm usually chilly, leggings and a denim jacket make for nice layers, even for a summery dress.
Allison from Allison Ramsing
Fashion for the everyday individual means that you can maintain comfort in your fall wardrobe without a closet full of options. Fashion for the everyday individual is about restyling a few of your favorites with different accessories and in turn, you have multiple new looks.
Brita from Belle Brita
I'm all about comfortable clothes year-round! In the fall, I practically live in my jeggings, although I'm also fond of regular jeans and regular leggings. As a person who gets cold easily, but also hot easily, layers are my friend. I often wear a loose top over a fitted tank or tee with a scarf and cardigan. If I need to strip down to just my tank, I'm still appropriately dressed!
Chloe from Beyond Blessed
What gets more comfortable than a "flowy" dress with pockets and a big chunky blanket scarf?
Bri from Book of Bri
In my opinion, fall style is all about coziness and texture. I love have a great dress I can throw on with my favorite booties for a day out, it's easy to throw a denim or cargo jacket over a dress when the weather cools. Browns, Creams, and Blues have been my go-to colors so far for the season. It's great to find colors and textures you love to help build your wardrobe for the season.
Becky from By BMG
To stay comfy in fall, leggings are always a win. They look flattering and can be worn with flats, ankle booties, or boots. My utility vest has become a staple piece for me, too, as it adds a little structure to some flowy tops!
Jessy from Current Bliss
For fall, I love sticking to the basics. For instance, you can never go wrong with a cute, casual plaid shirt. Plaid is the essence of fall and is not only comfy, but super versatile in terms of styling! I maintain comfort through my fall wardrobe by wearing pieces that I feel myself in! A pair of skinny jeans with converse or ankle booties, a messy side braid, and a warm latte in hand - that definitely does the trick for me!
Mary from Eat, Drink, and be Mary
When it comes to fashion, regardless of the season, comfort always comes first. A shift dress is the ultimate comfy, but still dressy (and work appropriate) outfit. Then to kick it up a notch and "fall-ify" it, I add a fall staple, like a vest, to create an outfit perfect for any fall activity (fall festive, teaching kiddos or a date night).
Sierra from Eclectic Kurves
Fall wardrobes don't have to be stressful or body hugging. The best thing about this colder weather is the ability to layer with ultra-soft fabrics. In this pic, I chose a textured vest that was both soft and fashion forward. The tunic is also oversized and doesn't cling to my body. Pair that with a great pair stretchy jeggings and voila! A comfortable, fashionable Fall look!
Charlene from Enduring All Things
I love to be comfortable in the fall. Something about the weather getting cooler and the leaves changing makes me want to curl up on a cozy, oversized sweater. Fall also means football which means lazy Saturdays and Sundays in lounge wear representing my teams. Comfort is key in this season!
Greta from Greta Hollar
I love fall fashion because it's all about accessorizing. Scarves, boots, hats, vests, you get to pull out all the stops and have fun with pattern mixing! Fall fashion is also more laid back. The silhouettes are loose and a perfect outfit is a boho styled dress, booties and floppy hat. This fall I'm loving anything in mustard yellow, burgundy and olive, especially if it's something in a floral pattern that laces up!
