Animal Prints

Leopards and cheetahs and zebras, oh my! Hear the call of the wild and answer with a chic printed midi skirt or ankle boots. Pair them with clean basics in neutral colors.

Bright Primary Colors

Electric yellow, bright cobalt and cherry red are great on their own, but when combined in one outfit, they become the dream team of hues. Look for prints that incorporate all three shades, or mix and match separates for a color-blocking effect.

Layered Pendant Necklaces

What’s better than one great standout necklace? Why, three or four great standout necklaces, of course. This fall is all about layering different lengths—just be sure to keep the metals the same (i.e., all gold or all silver) to avoid looking messy.

Denim Skirts

We’re not talking about the minis your mom disapproved of circa 2002. This year, look for high-waisted options in longer lengths with exaggerated characteristics like buttons and ties.

Beaded Bags

Though they might remind you of your days spent playing with Perler beads and Barbies, these fun bags look surprisingly chic in solid tones like white or black. Think of them as a fun alternative to a clutch when you want to carry something small.

Burnt Orange

Fact: This terracotta hue gives an instant boost to even the lightest or dullest skin and will make you look like you’ve still got that post-vacation glow.

To avoid looking like you just left summer camp, stick to patterns that have only two or three tones in the same color family. Then, pair them with elevated pieces like a metallic midi and ultra-femme pumps.
