The Summer 2021 Outfit Trend We Can’t Let Go Of For Fall

These are the effortless sets I'm loving this fall.

Style

As a fashion writer and stylist, I enjoy keeping my finger on the pulse of the biggest outfit trends that come along each season. However, what's noticeably different this year is, people can't seem to get enough of their favorite summer 2021 aesthetics. Even as winter slowly makes its way into our lives, it seems the trends from early in the year are simply here to stay. As we get a taste of colder weather, I'm loving the transition of my summer favorites into the most coveted fall looks.


One of the ongoing trends of the year, two-piece matching sets made a major comeback this summer and are anticipated to continue indefinitely. From prints on prints to solid neutral tones, the ease of a pre-coordinated look is seriously unmatched. Personally, I'm not always in the mood to create an entire outfit, at times it's the lack of energy and creativity that leaves me questioning whether or not to leave the house. With a matching set, the work is already done, leaving the simple task of choosing which accessories to adorn for the day.

Keep scrolling to check out the effortless sets that I'm loving this fall.

For this black and white zebra print cropped satin set, I paired a faux leather blazer to complete this fall look. Not wanting to overdo it, I wore a simple black mule to keep it simple yet chic. Accessorized with a fun statement earring, this is a perfect look for a night out any time of year.

I bought this two-piece set this summer with hopes of transitioning this look into fall. Like matching sets, cutouts are another trend that is here to stay for 2021. While it's still sunny skies here in LA, for those experiencing slightly colder weather opt for an oversized cream blazer and matching boot to keep stylishly warm.

The Matching Midi Skirt

For the more subtle yet fashion-forward women, this is the perfect look that keeps on giving. I love that this set is not only a match made in heaven but both pieces can be worn interchangeably with other items from my closet. The side laced skirt details along with the scrunch cropped top are two great pieces to add to have within my wardrobe with the potential of being worn multiple times in various ways.

But when it came to her mental wellbeing, Jones started feeling a disconnect. “Because a lot of the things that I was seeing on social media like: take a bath, pour you some wine,” Jones tells xoNecole about her initial attempts at self-care. “I was doing all of those aesthetic things, but it wasn't making me feel better.”
