30 Outfits To Wear In November When You Need Inspo For Cold-Weather Dressing
Don't let the stereotypical fall pleasantries fool you. Sure, apple picking is nice, but does anyone really prefer it to a day at the beach? Putting all your feelings about preferred temperatures or seasonal activities aside, here's what you can look forward to now that a new month is here: a chance to show off your sartorial skills. Whether you want to impress the extended family with your blanket-but-make-it-fashion Thanksgiving attire or you're planning for early holiday parties, November requires a collection of thoughtful fall outfits. It's not the time to phone it in.
You can no longer simply throw on a dress and sandals without frostbite potential, so layer up. It's time to show off your new By Far bag, your oversized blazer, and the neon Outdoor Voices fleece you've bought over the last month. It may be depressingly cold and dark outside, but incorporating a pop of color into your look or finishing off an evening ensemble with an of-the-moment accessory can make your seasons-old favorite sweater feel new again. Revisit the Fall/Winter 2019 runways for inspo, or look to your favorite influencers for IRL outfits you can impress the family with. Buy that new pair of snakeskin boots, dust off the shearling you've been storing away since March, and make November your best dressed month of 2019. Ahead, 30 outfit ideas for every day of November.
Extend the life on a favorite dress by layering a cool button-down underneath.
The easiest way to dress down a suit is with the addition of sneakers and baseball cap.
Add A Cardi
If the weather permits, skip the usual leather jacket for a cardigan cinched at the waist with a belt.
Don't be afraid to embrace the bold and mix textures and prints like rich croc and a tiger stripe.
A second-skin top is an easy layering piece, but makes a statement on its own too.
Keep It Cozy
Dress up your favorite jeans by styling with a cozy cropped cardigan with a crafty feel.
Don't Overthink It
Sometimes the best outfits are those that are just about great basics. Try trousers, a simple white tee, plaid jacket, and Oxfords.
If layering prints and textures feels overwhelming, try sticking to a single color palette to make things easy.
One easy thing to remember when you're in a rush in the morning: Sharply-tailored pieces will always look polished — mismatched or worn as a set.
Tonal dressing is an easy way to incorporate color into your wardrobe in a non-intimidating way.
A classic moto jacket is always in style, but a vintage long-line trench is major for fall 2019, too.
Sweater + Skirt
Keep things easy and cool and try styling an oversized sweater with a floaty midi or maxi skirt.
Looking for an alternative to your usual black booties? Try a pair of trendy snakeskin boots. Ankle-height or over-the-knee, it's up to you.
If a fall wedding is on the horizon, consider sticking to a muted color palette but finish off your look with metallic details.
Want a simple way to stand out this season? Style a simple all-black look with a bright statement coat that will also keep you cozy.
Last fall was all about the fleece, but the style hasn't left the fashion crowd's radar just yet. Style yours with a dress or skirt for a lesson in contrasts.
Part of the fun of fall fashion is the chance to mix and match textures like corduroy and cashmere.
All In The Layers
Add a bit of intrigue to your usual look by adding a fitted turtleneck underneath your top or jacket.
Don't shy away from bold hues. Try a crimson hue from head to toe to stand out from those in subdued seasonal tones.
More Is More
If your personal style skews playful, consider mixing and matching textures. Feathered or furry sleeves can be paired with a pair of sequin boots, no problem.
A sweatshirt doesn't have to feel schlubby. Layer a comfy pullover with a longline coat and the result is polished enough to elevate the humble hoodie or crewneck beyond athleisure.
Swap out your typical blue jeans for denim in a seasonal hue. Ochre, cranberry, or a forest green all fit this time of year.
Don't be afraid to layer in new or unexpected ways. A short dress, tall boots, and long coat make for an easy combo with maximum impact.
Find Your Palette
Try playing with a range of seasonal tones all at once. Colorful outerwear and bold shoes are both ideal for added in unexpected color to your wardrobe.
Tried And True Trousers
Trousers may feel like a work-only purchase, but they're actually ideal for a weekend too. Swap heels for sneakers and you're good to go.
To make sporty outerwear feel a bit more polished, consider the bag you choose to style it with. A sleek belt bag can transform your look.
Swap Your Sizes
Consider sizing up when you decide to buy your next sweater. A slouchy style can be an ideal layering piece that serves as outerwear without looking like it.
Tuck It In
Show off your newest boots by tucking your pants (or even a jumpsuit) into them. The look is utilitarian, but also cool.
For days when weather permits, consider wearing a blazer in a caped fashion instead of situated squarely on your shoulders.
A wider cross-body strap is a fresh alternative to the usual everyday bags you carry.
