The easiest way to put together a cute fall look is to rock a dress, and this season I’m obsessed with denim dresses! Whether you choose a tunic, A-line, or shirt-dress style, your denim dress is guaranteed to turn heads. Denim dresses look fabulous on their own, but you can easily add extra character to yours by pairing it with a textured belt or bold statement necklaces.

This fall, your outfit doesn’t need to be limited to one shade of denim. You can easily mix different shades of denim to create a trendy look that’s cute and comfortable. When you’re choosing denim pieces to combine, try pairing a light chambray top with a darker denim bottom like this outfit.
8. Add a denim vest
Denim vests are making a major comeback this autumn. They add just the right amount of color to any outfit, and an extra layer of warmth on cooler days. I love how this denim vest mixes with colored denim and oxblood booties, but I also recommend layering a denim vest over your fall dresses to give them an instant trendy makeover!

It’s officially time to break out the denim jacket you have hanging in the back of your closet. Denim jackets are the ideal weight for fall weather, and they’re an essential piece for transitioning your summer clothing into fall. They look great with everything from jeans and a T-shirt to a maxi dress and heels, so they’re a perfect addition to any fall outfit. If you’re looking for a way to spruce up a plain denim jacket, try pairing it with a patterned scarf.
