It’s time to fall in love with the new autumn trends for 2022!

Look and feel amazing as you head out for a color tour, meet with friends at the orchard, or hang out by a cozy bonfire in your favorite styles. Check out some of our must-have casual fall outfits and update your 2022 wardrobe with our favorite cute casual fall outfits.

Neutral Stylish Preppy Sweaters

Nothing says casual chic like a neutral prep sweater. You don’t need to dress up this versatile piece by layering it over a crisp white or black button-up shirt — the collared insert is attached to the lining of the sweater neckline. To dress it down for a day of apple picking or lunch meetings, finish the look with skinny jeans and sneakers. Leave the sweater untucked, or give it a bit of flair with a simple French tuck into high-waisted pants and heels.

As you shop for a staple preppy sweater, opt for a slightly baggy fit and a beautiful neutral shade. Light camels, creams, and even stripes will be a major casual fall outfit fashion trend, but we think a preppy sweater is a must-have that will never go out of style.

Warm Knits

Our absolute favorite thing about fall is the warm feeling you get when wearing a cozy knit sweater. There's nothing better! Plus, sweaters can be one of the most versatile go-to's in your collection. As you’re browsing fall looks for women, look for knits in soft blue or olive. These tones are incredibly effortless and timeless, so you can wear them for years to come.

Whether you're pumpkin carving or meeting up for coffee, play up your knit sweaters and cardigans with pops of color, like burnt orange or midnight blue. Pair your chunky knit with trendy jeans or shorts for a classic and laid-back outfit. Or, tuck a lighter knit sweater into a structured midi skirt for a super feminine vibe. It's a simple way to elevate the top, and add a personal touch to your cute casual fall outfit.

Classic Midi Dresses

We adore flowy midi dresses in the fall! These one-piece cutecasual fall outfit ensembles are perfect for autumn weddings, date nights, and office settings. The length offers a little coverage and warmth, while still being super cute. Experiment with new textiles, like silks, to add some new textures to your wardrobe.

Layer your favorite midi dress under a denim or faux leather jacket to stay warm, and keep the outerwear simple with medium to dark washes or darker materials. Make the dress the stand-out piece by choosing a floral or striped print design, some of the most popular fall looks for women.

The Go-To Denim Jacket

Looking for something elevated, effortless, and on-trend for this fall? Tie your casual fall outfit together with a go-to denim jacket. This seamless style will take you from a cozy coffee shop to a breezy autumn afternoon adventure easily. Layer it over your favorite leggings and trusty white tee, or reimagine this classic retro-style over your favorite fall colors for any fall-approved activity your day throws your way.

Fall into the arms of this jacket (and your favorite season) and create a cute casual fall outfit that will become a go-to wardrobe staple.

Straight Leg Denim

Straight-leg jeans are classic for a reason. Equal parts slim cut and relaxed, this denim will instantly elevate your favorite casual fall outfit. Perfect for a weekend trip to the vineyard, these capsule wardrobe staples pair well with an oversized button-up shirt but also work to dress up your favorite basic tops, too. Complete your outfit with a pair of ankle boots or casual white sneakers to slay this fall look for women.

Gold Accessories

Gold accessories are here to stay and these little bits of sparkle are here to make a statement. Choose from chunky gold hoops and cuban link chains, or opt for daintier pieces, like layered necklaces and barely-there bracelets, too. The best part? They blend effortlessly with the colors of your cutecasual fall outfits, and as staple styles, can be used to add a bit of glam to your outfits all year round.

Throw on a corded gold bracelet to attend a loved ones wedding, or opt for go-to hoops before you meet your besties for a coffee date.

The Carry-All Tote

Teeny-tiny purses were so 2021 and they’ve been replaced by ultra-practical, bigger-is-better carry-all styles for fall 2022. Think the Marc Jacobs Tote Bag, redone to match your favorite fall looks for women. Take a note from your favorite influencers and opt for styles with chunky chains, or keep it low-key with a minimalist canvas design that will match everything. These style staples are the key to making a cute casual fall outfit, and work great for work, the farmer’s market, or anywhere else your day (or night!) might take you.

Shades of Brown

Cute casual fall outfits are all about shades of brown. Embrace this earthy tone by adding chic blouses and pants in neutral tan or rich chocolate to your closet. Or, create a fun 70’s vibe by pairing your pants with a bright yellow graphic tee. Accent your mocha dress with a pop of vibrant red in the form of a clutch.

Go monochromatic, and pair your brown pieces with taupe or caramel accessories, such as vegan leather belts and wide-brimmed hats. Add a hint of pinkish-brown with a pair of terracotta boots to your casual fall outfits, too.

Have Fun with 2022’s Fall Looks for Women

Most importantly, have fun! The best part about women’s fashion is loving how your clothes make you feel. Whether you’re looking for the cozy warmth of a knit sweater, the flexible stretch of athletic wear, the chic silhouette of a dress, or the colorful inspiration of a blouse, we have the perfect piece for your collection at Magnolia Boutique.
