It’s layering season again! After wearing less during the summer months, fall gives us a chance to get more thoughtful and creative with our outfits. This year, green, brown, and tan are the colours in vogue – and we all know that they pop against melanated skin. For this reason, our team chose ten fall fashion ideas to inspire you.

Give tailoring that fall makeover by combining earthy tones. An open-collar polo shirt layered under a relaxed blazer and coordinating trousers will do the trick.  

It’s hard to go wrong with a trench coat, which will carry you into the winter months. (Don’t worry, we’ll be back for your winter fashion inspiration too!). Pair it with a statement hat and voila.


Dark denim and earth tones go together like jollof and stew. They may be a headache to break into but once you do, you’ll never look back. Pair a baggy pair with a bomber jacket, quilted gilet, and suede clogs. 

For our streetwear lovers out there, we got you covered! Baseball jackets are classic and will bring an effortless cool to your fall fashion. Wear yours over an oversized hoodie with skinny jeans and Chelsea boots.

Fall teaches us that tailoring doesn’t have to be monochromatic to look sharp. This look can be worn from corporate daytime meetings to evening dinners with friends. This is achieved by throwing a clean jacket over a roll-neck sweater with pleated trousers and loafers.

Earth tones aren’t mandatory for a stylish fall outfit. You can still capture the autumnal mood with monochrome colours, which will easily transition into winter fashion. Do this with a wool coat over a button-up shirt and relaxed trousers. Don’t forget to accessorise well!

Cargo trousers have gotten a new lease of life in recent years. These can be dressed up or down as the weather starts to cool down. Put them on with a relaxed chore jacket, button-up shirt, and combat boots for a utilitarian feel.

Fedora hats are a staple during the fall seasons. When trying to achieve a sophisticated, refined look, you can’t go wrong! Tuck your T-shirt into a pair of straight-leg trousers with formal shoes, then throw on a short coat to complete the look.

Fashion is about character, individuality, and expression so don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd. Add a pop of colour to your fall fashion looks. This can be done in unexpected ways with a pair of bumblebee-yellow trainers or neon-green beanie. Whatever you do, let it be tasteful. 

Sweatsuits are a go-to for any season. They’re laid-back, cool, and stylish. Whether you’re going for a quick trip to the supermarket or going over to a friends house, pick one with a boxy sweatshirt and coordinating pants. 

As the seasons change, it can be tricky to keep up with emerging trends.

Don’t worry! We’re here to help.

We’ll be keeping you updated on what’s hot (and what’s not) as we move forward into this new season. What are your go to pieces for fall?
