Let’s talk elevated casual tops for fall! When you have casual tops that are a step up from basics, it’s easier to make outfits look stylish, so I highly recommend focusing on this area of your wardrobe. Today I’ll share some elevated casual tops for fall that you can include to round out your wardrobe, and I’m partnering with Kohl’s and Collective Voice to do it! These are affordable, easy to wear, and will help you upgrade your style!

Kohl’s has so many good finds at extremely good prices. Kohl’s carries everything from super casual styles to special occasion wear, and I especially love to browse Kohl’s to find nice casual tops. I also love that Kohl’s carries a variety of sizing options, including straight, plus, petite, and tall sizes! You can also shop conveniently with Kohl’s curbside and in-store pickup.

And, right now you can get 20% OFF with code FAMILYSAVE until 10/1, so you can save even MORE! Seriously some of these prices are too good, so let’s get to ’em!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

1. Plaid Shirt
First on our list of elevated casual tops for fall, a plaid shirt! What I love about a plaid shirt is that it is really, really casual but provides lots of visual interest compared to a plain long sleeve tee. You can pair a plaid shirt with relaxed jeans and sneakers for laid-back looks. Then, you can wear it in elevated casual looks simply by pairing it with booties!

I’m wearing this yellow plaid shirt with awesome flare jeans to create an elevated casual outfit. This flannel shirt is soft, fairly thick and warm, affordable, and comes in 9 colors! There are quite a few great colors, so check them all out HERE! I wear size S. Find it in petites HERE and plus sizes HERE.

BTW, aren’t these jeans FUN? Flare jeans are a fun option to help your outfits make a statement. If you want to add some to your wardrobe, this pair is polished and chic with a modern vibe. They are lightweight, comfortable, and affordable at just $29.59! Check them out HERE. I wear size 6.

2. Printed Top
Next up is this printed top, or one with similar material. It’s totally a step up from a basic t-shirt but not as dressy as a blouse – the perfect sweet spot for elevated casual tops for fall. This top has so many details that dress it up even more, like buttons down the front, ruffles at the shoulders, and a ruffled collar. It comes in 4 prints and 3 solid colors, HERE.

I’ll round up more options for similar elevated casual tops at the bottom of this post!

You can pair this top with the flare jeans from the previous outfit or with dark wash straight leg jeans. You can also pair it with black straight leg jeans like I’m doing here for a tailored casual outfit.

These straight leg jeans are a pull-on style with a fully elastic waistband. I know you all have mixed feelings about pull-on style pants, but one huge plus with them is that since there is no button or zipper, the waistband adds way less bulk at the midsection, which helps flatten things out! The fit of the straight leg is slim, classic, and polished, and this pair is really affordable – only $26.39! Find the jeans HERE. I’m wearing size 6 in the colorway Mineral Wash.

I topped off this look with loafers to keep up that tailored and classic vibe. These loafers are pretty comfortable with some cushion in the footbed and a soft, flexible upper. They’re available in medium and wide widths, HERE. I’m wearing size 9.

3. Relaxed Sweater
Next, include an easygoing pullover sweater! Go for a sweater that has extra details that elevate it beyond a basic sweater, such as this sweater with texture and ribbed cuffs. It’s just as easy to wear as a basic sweater is, but it adds much more visual interest and style to outfits! This one comes in 7 solid colors and 2 prints and is just $22, HERE! I wear size S.

Or, you can opt for a printed sweater instead! This is the same sweater as the green one above, but in an adorable print!

While we’re here, I HAVE TO tell you about this shrunken jacket! I bought last year’s version in a different color, but it sold out before I could even share it with you all. I’m SO HAPPY this one is available now because it’s such a great jacket! It is a fantastic alternative to a denim jacket and a utility jacket. I love that it’s shorter, so it pairs well with voluminous bottoms when utility jackets add too much length or bulk. It comes in olive green, black, and tan. Honestly, it’s hard to choose a color! See them all HERE. I wear size S.

Last, these jeans are the same pull-on jeans as the black pair above. This comfy option won’t break the bank, and this wash is great for casual, relaxed outfits! Find the jeans HERE. I wear size 6.

These are some elevated casual tops for fall that I recommend having in your wardrobe to upgrade your casual style. Remember, look for pieces that are easy to wear and have casual vibes but have details like texture, prints, and other characteristics that provide more visual interest. This way, you can add style to your outfits more easily!
