Dress for the Weather You Want

If the weather isn’t quite cooperating with the calendar (or you live in warm-weather L.A., like Caroline Juen), you can still sport fall styles. An open cardigan, leather miniskirt and light ankle boots give an autumnal vibe without making you sweat through the heat.

Rethink Patent Leather Pants

If the thought of wearing leather pants has you immediately dreading a Ross Geller-esque disaster situation, look for a pair in a looser, more trouser-like cut. Rich seasonal shades like burgundy or forest green can also help this rockstar fabric feel more accessible.
