Embrace the eternally cool power of an ultra-skinny scarf, as seen at Chloé.

Play with new ways to tie a scarf, like this statement look from MSGM.

Toss a fur scarf or stole over one shoulder when wearing a winter coat, like this model at 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Grab your boyfriend's preppiest sweater and throw it on with a pleated midi skirt—a cool take on typical September style, as seen at Derek Lam.

Mix not two but three prints for an eclectic-cool look, like this one at Miu Miu.

We love the idea of wearing a strapless dress over a button-down for fall, like this Stella McCartney look.

Pair white sneakers with a swingy midi skirt, like Céline did.

Temper the glitz of sequins by adding crisp basics for day—we like J.Crew's decision to use a cotton shirtdress and wool overcoat.

With a short skirt, an oversize button-up coat takes on a dress feel as in this chic Nina Ricci look.

Choose a bandana instead of a plain scarf this fall, like Coach did. It's so cool with anything from a leather bomber to a tailored blazer.

Try wearing a bandeau over your shirt, like this Christian Dior look.

Layer a black turtleneck sweater under a spring-y dress, like this BCBG look.

Long gloves add old-school glamour to a slip dress, as seen at Prada.

Let a pussy-bow top peek out from under a blazer, as with this Gucci look.

Use a statement belt to cinch an overcoat, à la Roksanda.

Add a button-down to a sleeveless jumpsuit or maxi dress, like they did at Topshop Unique.

Let a tight long-sleeve shirt peek out from under a voluminous dress, like this Emilia Wickstead pairing.

Re-create this Proenza Schouler look by layering a black bandeau under a sheer top and then adding black high-waist pants.

Try adding a neon shirt under a neutral suit, like this Delpozo look.

Pair those OTK boots with shorts for a night on the town. A turtleneck and fitted blazer make this Alice and Olivia look chic, not trashy.

Layer a printed button-down under a sleeveless dress, like Karen Walker did. Extra points if the dress is also a print—and a totally different one.

Pair a fitted turtleneck with a dressy evening skirt—so elegant, like this Christian Siriano look.

A chunky sweater and a pencil skirt is a winning fall combo, like this A Détacher look.

A thin scarf, ribbon, or dickie adds a glamorous touch to a strapless evening look, as seen at Cushnie Et Ochs.

Although this Sass and Bide shirt is indeed fur, get the look by buttoning or zipping a fur vest and wearing it as a top this fall.
