This post was originally published in October 2020. It has been updated to give you the best information about cardigan outfits for fall.
During the autumn season, cardigan outfits are my go-to. They’re so chic with very little effort.
Can’t figure out what to wear on a fall day? Put together a totally simple ensemble – then add a cardigan. Since this season often brings about days that are cool in the morning and warmer in the afternoon, cardigans are the perfect “third piece” for your look. There’s a reason why light layers are so appealing.
I’m a massive fan of open cardigans, especially draped styles. They elevate any look. My suggestion is to choose one in a warm, neutral color for your wardrobe. I ordered this caramel-colored cardigan from Chicwish, and it’s been a fantastic addition to my fall fashion rack.

It’s so simple to create comfy and cozy fall cardigan outfits for fall.
Take my look, for example. I started with the simplest pairing of all time: blue jeans and a white t-shirt. After that, I added the cardigan, boots, a bag, and a layered necklace. I put practically zero thought into this outfit, and yet, if I were to run errands in this, I would feel 100% put-together and confident. I even bought pretty masks to wear with each of my autumn outfits. They’re basically another accessory now!
This cardigan would also be great to wear with a fall graphic tee and sneakers if I wanted to dress it down – or I could elevate it further with a feminine skirt and loafers to stay stylish and comfortable in an office environment. There are so many options!
