After surviving a brutally hot summer, we’re absolutely thrilled about the next few weeks to come—of chilly breezes, dropping temperatures, and changing leaves.

A Layerable Sweater Dress

Invest in a midi sweater dress that you can either wear solo or layer over a maxi skirt for maximum autumnal coziness.

Romantic Bell Sleeves

Summer was all about off-the-shoulder ruffles, but fall will be huge on bell sleeves—trust us on this. For a dramatic effect, swap in this flouncy top for the plain oxford or T-shirt.

Suede Outerwear

The camel-hued trench coat is just as ubiquitous as it is rather basic. Breathe new life into the classic by opting for a suede, military-inspired silhouette instead.

A Boxy Moto Jacket

So long are the days of the fitted, cropped leather jacket. This season, don a baggier fit over a simple top, chunky knits, or a layered sundress—thrown over the shoulders, of course.

A Mock Turtle Tank

This particular sleeveless style may seem tricky at first glance, but once you realize it can be tucked into shorts, jeans, or skirts (literally anything), this top is bound to be your new go-to.

A Bow Blouse

It's a damn good thing librarian-chic is in style, considering how much more fun street style can be with an oversized bowtie collar.

A Throw-on-and-Go Pink Dress

Since this rosy hue is not going away any time soon, update your fall wardrobe with a simple pink turtleneck number that can be worn in a pinch.

Non-Boring Florals

Transitioning floral prints into autumn is surprisingly easy. Opt for a more subdued print and pair it with a simple black skirt for effortless mix-and-matching.

A Button-Down Mini Skirt

A denim mini is always a sure bet, but fall calls for a bit more substance and texture. A supple suede mini with a button-down detail just may be the ticket.

Cropped Patchwork Denim 

Subtle patchwork details on cropped jeans can quickly elevate plain denim into a street style double-take.

Even a head-to-toe black look can still feel glamorous (not goth) if you build your outfit around a pleated midi skirt.
