When it comes to getting dressed during the summer, we look to the season's natural breezy vibes to inspire our daily looks. Come fall, we're more than ready to trade in linens and cottons for cashmere, suede, and denim.

"Fall has got to be the greatest time of year for fashion," Seth Weisser, cofounder and CEO of What Goes Around Comes Around, tells BAZAAR.com. "The change in weather opens up so many wardrobe opportunities—one of our personal favorites being jackets. This fall, we're reaching for a leather moto or blazer, oversized silhouettes, and, of course, iconic Chanel tweed and bouclé jackets."

Beyond outstanding jacket opportunities, certain key pieces, from baggy jeans to khaki pants, knit vests, and, of course, boots and bags, all add up to killer autumnal looks. Ahead, shop 12 looks that will help up your fall outfit game immediately. If loving all things autumn makes us basic, we wouldn't have it any other way. Pass the pumpkin spice lattes.

Bella Hadid is giving swinging '60s in a miniskirt, socks, and sandals. A sporty zip-up brings the whole idea back to the here and now—but we wouldn't mind interpreting this look more literally and pairing it all with a little cardigan either.

Gabrielle Union is advising on the necessity of a suede miniskirt come fall. Add a fetching graphic bag and boxy jacket—bra top not mandatory—and strut, don't walk.

The knit vest is that styling tool you didn't even know you needed until you had it in your arsenal. Wear yours with a denim skirt as in this street style look or under a blazer. Or why not try it with wool trousers?

A knit dress is fall's answer to the perfect white cotton dress all summer long. It looks as luxe as it is comfortable and easy. Knee-high boots finish the story.

The three-piece suit is so surprisingly versatile. Worn together, it's as sophisticated as the next dandy, or deconstruct it and pair your vest with jeans or your trousers and jacket with a plain white tee. The options, as they say, are endless.

A classic pair of jeans, worn with a white blouse and a cool jacket add up to a foolproof fall moment. Just add an It bag like It girl Chloë Sevigny did with her Chanel tote, and you'll be off, running, and avoiding the paps in no time.

Even if you haven't entered a classroom since the new millennium, there's just something about schoolgirl vibes that feels right for fall. Make it more grown-up with a plaid maxi skirt instead of a mini.

A suede jacket lends instant luxe appeal to anything you pair it with. Opt for a classic combination like Kaia Gerber by mixing black trousers with supple suede.

Is there a better mix than plaid and leather for fall? We love the ease of sneakers with otherwise-workwear ready silhouettes. Of course, a cropped top is always an option—but perhaps not for the office.

A great pair of khaki trousers will make getting dressed so easy come fall. Add a little cardi, a leather jacket, and kicks à la Hailey Bieber, and you'll never regret your purchase.

A little cropped jacket and wide-leg jeans add up to just the right amount of polish for fall—as seen on Anne Hathaway at Cannes. Swap sandals for booties when the weather turns.
