Fall Fashion Guide

It’s my favorite time of year guys, Fall photo session season! To make your shoot plans even easier and to make sure your photos are everything you’ve dreamed of, I’ve put together eight Fall Fashion Guides for men and women.

You can use these guides to pull inspiration for your own portrait session looks. Then if you have little ones, you can pull together their outfit with colors and textures that compliment your own look!

Women’s Fall Fashion Guide No. 1

If your shoot day will be warm enough, bring flirty ruffles and cute cuts into the mix. A twist on the fashion looks from summer’s past, this guide combines flattering, wearable colors with fun and interesting cuts, ruffles, and accessories. We especially love a statement sunhat or a small silk scarf tied around the neck. Go for stripes and delicate lace tops if your personal style includes pattern-play. If you’re more of a black-on-black girl, try a voluminous cropped blouse with tailored black dress pants and heels. And a red lip looks good with any combination of these looks!

My second guide is for the expressive and daring dresser. Bright chinoiserie and graphic 70s patterns in fresh colors are some of my favorite fall looks. Mix these with a grown-up wool cape or a patchwork denim piece to make them super-current. Not such a pattern lover? Try a 70s-90s inspired chic pantsuit in a flattering cream or camel color. Accessories: tassel earrings and vintage sunnies.

Red and pink are sometimes reserved for Valentine’s or Christmas, but I think they are gorgeous for fall, especially if you plan on using photos from your fall session for the holiday card this year! I’ve selected three feminine dresses in various cuts and a flawless blush wool coat to adapt for colder weather. Try bold heeled slides in Chinese red or a tropical print, or go seamless in patent, pointed-toe heels. Accessorize with jewel, pearl, or tassel earrings, and perhaps have a go at the velvet choker trend!

Does anything signal those fall feelings quite like the turning of leaves from vibrant green to gold? I love the hues that fall between ochre and mustard for fall garb. Go structured in a wrapped crop-top and floral trousers, or tap into slightly bohemian vibes with bell sleeves and wide-brim hats. Whether you opt for a flowing blouse or a strappy tank, full pleated a-line skirt or wide-leg pants, complete the look with platform heels. Accessorize with a vintage bandana or clear aviators.

Men’s Fall Fashion Guide No. 1

From dapper to casual, this fashion guide is all about blue. A truly season-less hue, navy always seems to make its way into our men’s guide, and I’m not sorry. Go ultra dapper in a suit and classic brown brogues, or dress down in a subtle flannel and navy bomber jacket. Either look can be improved with fun and daring suspenders. Optional accessories: beanies, prescription-look glasses.

Men’s Fall Fashion Guide No. 2

My fun, casual guide for men this fall includes a retro-graphic tee, dark jeans or checked dress pants, bold or subtle floral button up, and a denim jacket to finish. The shoes we imagine with this look range from sneakers to work boots, and you can’t go wrong with a classic leather watch.

The starting point for my third men’s fashion guide is a simple but classic look: white tee or button up and black slacks or jeans. If your style veers a little Rock and Roll, try the London man’s favorite: Chelsea boots. More sporty? Try the ultra popular Vans skate shoes or any canvas sneaker. Complete the outfit with a maroon bomber or a wool overcoat. Any combination of this style guide can be complemented with a fun silk pocket square and a silver watch.

My fourth and final men’s guide for fall features a classic camel palette. A knit retro-inspired shirt, wool overcoat, and workwear jacket feature varying camel hues. A white tee, black slacks, and a light-wash denim jacket offer options to mix and match. A simple navy scarf adds personality and warmth for cold-weather shoots, and *bonus points* for suspenders!
