There’s nothing more romantic than a Fall date out with your significant other or a prospective partner. The air is cool (perfect for holding hands!) and the surroundings have that distinct autumn magic you won’t experience at any other time of the year. 

What’s awesome about this season is that there are already wardrobe staples which you can wear for a special rendezvous, like the good old jacket, leggings, and a trusty pair of booties. But if you want to spice things up and elevate your date look, there are easy ways to pull that off, too. 

We have curated a list of fashion tips and tricks you can apply when choosing the right outfit for a day or night out during the Fall season. Be it indoors or outdoors, laidback or flashy, we have a suggestion for you. Scroll down and get ready to dress up and go out!

Fall Date Fashion Tip 1: Bring out the blazers.

Trade your trusty cardigan with a blazer for your fall date. Blazers are closet essentials which you can partner with about any ensemble. They look chic and effortlessly elegant even when partnered with simple garments like jeans and tops. Pair an oversized blazer with your favourite pants and a simple tee then add in some chunky jewellery and comfy booties and you’re ready for an awesome autumn day out.

Fall Date Fashion Tip 2: Stay toasty in a turtleneck.

Another fall wardrobe staple is the turtleneck. It is timeless, versatile, and can be styled and worn in different ways. You can pair your turtleneck with a printed maxi skirt and ankle boots for a night at the bar or with jeans, a teddy coat, and knee-high boots for a fun day at the pumpkin patch. 

Fall Date Fashion Tip 3: It’s leather weather, baby!

Leather is always a good idea when it comes to fall fashion. Whether it’s a dress, a jacket, or a pair of leggings, leather garments bring out one’s fierce and trendy side. Mix and match your leather look to create a wonderful contrast of shades and textures like pairing a sleek leather jacket with a feminine ruffled dress for a romantic dinner out.

Fall Date Fashion Tip 4: Blend in with nature.

Maximize the gorgeous colours of the autumn surroundings by using them as inspiration for your outfits. Rock a brown dress reminiscent of the fallen leaves for a stroll outside. Strut your stuff in an all-black designer dress to complement the moody air. Or wear a rust-coloured gown to a wedding date for that warm romantic glow. 

Fall Date Fashion Tip 5: Be bold and stand out.

If you want to turn heads and stand out, skip Tip #4 and go the other way by choosing colours that are contrasting to fall shades. Wear garments in hot pink, electric blue, and lime green to make sure that you stand out at a friend’s party or a casual hangout.

Fall Date Fashion Tip 6: Never say no to neutrals.

Channel low-key sophistication and polished style with a neutral-coloured head-to-toe outfit for your fall date. This type of muted style is perfect for just about any ensemble – from beige pantsuits and blazers for that quick coffee date or a rose dress with matching suede boots for a fancy city rendezvous. 

Fall Date Fashion Tip 7: Jeans are your friends.

Wearing jeans is an acceptable fashion statement for a fall date. They will keep you warm and cosy while still retaining that chic and on-trend vibe. Jeans pair well with just any top and shoes. If you’re feeling feminine, go for a ruffled or lace top with strappy heels. If you want to keep it laidback and casual, a comfy combo of a thick sweater, a blazer, and boots will do the trick.

Fall Date Fashion Tip 8: Comfort should be your priority.

One important tip when choosing a fall date outfit: don’t trade comfort for fashion. Whatever you wear, make sure that it’s comfortable and will provide ample warmth especially when it’s deep in autumn and the surroundings are colder. This way, you get to enjoy the company and whatever activity you’re doing – be it a simple walk or a romantic dinner.

Fall Date Fashion Tip 9: Go for something that is tried and tested.

If you’re not feeling adventurous and ultra-stylish, there’s no harm in wearing a “safe” outfit that’s already been tried and tested. A combination of a flannel shirt, leggings, and boots may seem simple but does the work especially if the activity you’re doing is laidback and outdoorsy. Same with a casual dress, denim jacket, and knee-high boots that always look good when worn. 

Fall Date Fashion Tip 10: Don’t forget to accessorize!

This doesn’t only apply to jewellery and bling but also to garments that would not only spice up your look but also keep you warm and nice during the date. These include shawls, scarves, beanies, gloves, and stockings among others. They won’t only make you look good, but they will also make you feel good. That’s hitting two fashion birds with one stone.

Read for your fall date? We hope these tips have helped you gear up for that upcoming special moment. Just a final word of advice: when choosing an outfit, make sure that comfort will be your number one priority. If you feel good, it will radiate on your aura and vibe. No awkward dress pulling and sore feet. In turn, it’ll boost your confidence, eventually impressing your date. It’ll then be a happy autumn ending!
