Let Your Socks Show

Don’t stow your mules just yet. Instead, pair them with thin, chic socks in argyle, bright pink or even shimmery metallic, like fashionista Babba Canales does here. Just make sure they’re always in tip-top condition (because holes are not chic).

Toss a Blazer On Over a Maxi

Yes, you absolutely can continue to wear your beloved summer maxi dress through the month of November, under two conditions: One, it should feature a darker or moodier print.

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.

Or Embrace It From Head to Toe
