I think every woman has a few outfits that she feels comfortable in. I certainly do, and there are always a few closet combinations that I gravitate toward during every season.
This fall I have a few combinations that I’m already finding myself putting together over and over. They range from very casual to dressy, so I feel like I have something”safe and comfortable” to wear for pretty much every occasion. And when I have multiple pieces in my closet to create each of these combinations, I can make quite a few outfits per combo. Win.

5 Closet Combos for Fall 1 of 6
Tunics and Leggings 2 of 6
Tunics and leggings are one of the comfiest things to wear. A super soft gray one with leather detailing is so appropriate for fall, and when paired with lace-up booties, it's totally my style and on-trend.
Dresses and Cardigans 3 of 6
All your summer dresses can still be worn throughout the fall -- just throw on a cardigan and a fun pair of flats, and you're ready for fall. And as it gets cooler, throw on a pair of tights!
Oversized Sweaters and Booties 4 of 6
An oversized sweater just screams fall to me. With a pair of jeans and booties, you have my fall staple.
Plaid and Leather 5 of 6
I'm loving all the leather and plaid out there right now, and the combination of the two is so fierce. Don't feel like you have to wear a leather skirt and so much plaid to achieve this look either...try leggings with leather insets for just a hint of leather, and layer your plaid shirt under a sweater so you get just a hint of plaid at your wrists and neck.
Sweatshirts and Skirts 6 of 6
Is anyone as obsessed with sweatshirts as I am? I'm building up quite a collection in my closet. This fall I'm loving them with a skirt and heels for a fun casual/dressy juxtaposition! I know I'll be wearing this combination until the heat forces me to take that sweatshirt off!
