Give Your Shorts One Last Run

This works specifically with  longer styles, like Bermudas and board shorts, but we love how they look paired with a simple crew-neck sweater and classic strappy sandals for one last transitional ensemble before we go all-in on sweater weather.

Get the look: Adam Selman x Le Specs sunglasses ($89); Old Navy sweater ($40); Ted Baker London clutch ($175); Lafayette 148 New York shorts ($268); Vince Camuto sandals ($99)

Upgrade Your Denim Jacket

Fact: Jean jackets go with literally everything. Another fact: That isn’t just limited to the classic trucker style. Shake things up and choose a motorcycle, bomber or blazer version for a fresh new vibe.

Feel Groovy in Tie-Dye

This is not your mom's hippie Woodstock print. The 2019 version is much more subtle and looks best on tailored pieces like a classic button-down, shift dress or crisp trousers.

Get the look: A.L.C. top ($375); Dickies pants ($45); Tory Burch shoes ($378)

Pair Snakeprint with Camouflage

Snakeskin is one of the trendiest patterns for fall, but it can definitely feel a little extra if you’re not used to wearing animal prints. The neutral tones in camouflage make it a great match for the scaly pattern and will keep things looking cool and casual.

Get the look: Good American jacket ($149); Everlane T-shirt ($18); J.O.A. skirt ($84); Sam Edelman boots ($180)

Give Overalls a Shot

You don’t need to be a farmer or under the age of ten to get away with overalls. Look for a slim-fit pair in a clean wash and pair it with classic staples like sleek ankle boots and a crisp button-down, just like Coterie member Katie Sturino.

Get the look: Grayson button-down ($128); Reformation overalls ($178); Treasure & Bond boots ($100); Rebecca Minkoff bag ($198)

Embrace Autumn's Vibrant Hues

Oh, you thought fall was the time to revert back to all blacks and grays? Not so much. Make room for bright oranges, yellows, reds and purples instead.

Get the look: Anne Klein top ($79); LOEWE skirt ($830); Topshop belt ($40) and bag ($40); Jaggar shoes ($200)

Give Moody Florals a Sporty Spin

Deep dark blooms don't feel quite as "evening-only" when worn with a sporty striped T-shirt, now do they?

Get the look: Lands' End T-shirt ($8); C/Meo Collective dress ($139); Naturalizer heels ($120)

Go Print Crazy

Moody florals and dark gingham are both trending, so why not try wearing them together? As long as everything is in the same color family (i.e., navy, black and maroon), we promise you won’t look like you got dressed in the dark.

Get the look: Aloha Funwear shirt ($39); Reformation pants ($178); Staud boots ($395)

OR STICK TO ONE COLOR

Monochromatic dressing doesn't necessarily mean wearing all black. Have some fun with yellow, purple or Kelly green instead.

Get the look: Express sweater ($60); Joe's jeans ($113); Vans sneakers ($50)

Mix Large Prints with Small

This is one cheeky way to play with proportions. Select a pattern, like polka dots or stripes, and commit to it by wearing a supersize version of the print and a miniature iteration.

Get the look: Chinti & Parker sweater ($421) and skirt ($475); Nordstrom bag ($85); Via Spiga sandals ($250)

Layer Your Summer Dresses

A flowy summer dress becomes fall- and work-appropriate when layered over a chic black turtleneck, just like Coterie member Jessie Loeffler-Randall does above. Swap your pumps for ankle boots for a commute that’s just as comfortable as it is chic.

Get the look: Banana Republic turtleneck ($31); Max Studio dress ($45); Loeffler Randall boots ($695)

Rock Your PJs All Weekend Long

Bold accessories and clean white kicks are all you need to make the sweater and pajama pants you wore to bed last night totally appropriate for daytime. (Shh, it’ll be our little secret.)

Get the look: Quay Australia sunglasses ($55); 8 Other Reasons earrings ($39); Naadam sweater ($195); Ganni pants ($157); Converse sneakers ($50)

Swap Boots for High Socks

Pair some crisp white ankle socks with matching white sneakers to create a look that's just as cool as a white bootie, just infinitely more walkable.

Get the look: CO dress ($278); Nike sneakers ($90) and socks ($18 for set of two)

Answer the Call of the Wild

Leopard print has been on the rise and it doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. Follow in the footsteps of Coterie member Babba Canales and dress up a spotted pair of trousers with a cozy caramel blazer and classic black slingbacks.

Get the look: Karen Walker sunglasses ($192); J.Crew blazer ($138); Ganni pants ($192); Charles and Keith heels ($46)

Make the Cargo Trend Work For You

Cargo pants are in once again, but if you just can't shake the feeling that they'll make you look like a dad on a fishing trip, why not adapt the style to something more your vibe? Try a skirt or silk blouse with tons of pocket instead for a more femme take.

Get the look: Charter Club shirt ($60); Prada skirt ($1,390); Linea Paolo shoes ($120)

Wear Your Blazer as a Jacket

Yes, you could reach for your trusty black leather jacket or your go-to denim topper yet again, but where's the fun in that? Mix it up and treat your blazer as you would any other piece of outerwear, even if you're rocking a dress instead of pants.

Get the look: Topshop blazer ($95); RACHEL Rachel Roy dress ($25); Kate Spade New York bag ($140); Charles by Charles David heels ($60)

Try the Color of the Season

This stunning burnt orange shade is surprisingly flattering on every single skin tone. It doesn’t hurt that it evokes visions of fall leaves and pumpkin spice lattes, either.

Get the look: & Other Stories blazer ($129); Wit & Wisdom top ($68); Brooks Brothers pants ($148); Rebecca Minkoff clutch ($68); Sam Edelman heels ($120)

Take Your White Pants Back Out of Storage

Even after Labor Day, white pants look très chic. We love the idea of styling them with a Parisian striped turtleneck, suede tote and bright red cat-eye sunnies.

Get the look: Adam Selman x Le Specs Luxe sunglasses ($119); J.Crew top ($40); Yigal Azrouel pants ($199)

Style Your Cardigan as a Shirt

We’re definitely on board with any trick that instantly doubles our wardrobe (without taking up any precious space in our closet!). If closing the bottom buttons of your cardi creates an unflattering buckling situation, simply unbutton as high as you need to go to smooth things out, then toss on a high-waisted skirt and a chic belt.

Get the look: Garnet Hill cardigan ($168); Anthropologie belt ($48); Proenza Schouler skirt ($395); Vince Camuto boots ($150)

Swap Dark Staples for White Ones

When everyone else reaches for a simple black tee, tortoiseshell sunglasses or deep brown pumps, we say run in the opposite direction. Stark, bright whites (not the creamy shades typically seen in fall and winter) will make you stand out from the pack in the most stylish way.

Get the look: Prive sunglasses ($40); Superdown bodysuit ($60); Anthropologie coat ($298); Express pants ($80); Naturalizer heels ($110)

Sport an Oversize Button-Up

This combo may be an office-wear staple, but trousers and a button-up doesn't have to feel formal. Keep things casual with a loose, flowy top and simple accessories.

Get the look: Kobi Halperin shirt ($298); M.M.LaFleur pants ($145); Wandler shoes ($470)

Add a Single Pop of Color

Just because you'd rather wear neutral tones from head to toe doesn't mean you can't add at least one hint of rainbow shades. Even if it's just with a pair of cheeky socks.

Get the look: Alex Mill dress ($155); Charles & Keith bag ($89); Hysteria socks ($18); Jeffrey Campbell shoes ($135)

Go All In for Velvet Season

Gingham and white denim is to summer as cozy velvet is to fal,l so go ahead and break out all that plush fabric ASAP. We're obsessing over Coterie member Coco Bassey's cool take on the trend with a goldenrod dress and edgy black accessories.

Get the look: Modcloth dress ($80); Senreve bag ($695); RAID boots ($64)

Wear All White, Almost

Think you need to stow your white jeans away for the rest of the year? Think again. Pair them with an easy white tee and a Southwestern sweater or poncho, boots and a wool hat for a look that perfectly combines that fall feeling and a trendy cowgirl vibe.

Get the look: Brixton hat ($68); Pendleton poncho ($259); Old Navy T-shirt ($13); Warp & Weft jeans ($98); Sam Edelman boots ($180)

Upgrade Your Trench Coat

A classic tan trench will never go out of style, but then again, neither will a gorgeous patent leather one. If you're worried about looking like a lost extra from The Matrix, opt for a non-black version (we're particular fans of this olive-green hue).

Get the look: ASOS coat ($119); BHLDN headband ($35); Hunting Season bag ($687); Tahari shoes ($72)

Wear a Tee Instead of a Jacket

Not quite ready to commit to a jacket? Layer a long-sleeve T-shirt under a short-sleeve dress and you’ll still stay stylishly warm.

Get the look: Uniqlo shirt ($25); MICHAEL Michael Kors dress ($94); Liendo by Seychelles heels ($130)

That's right, the Day-Glo trend is still going strong. And who knew neon hues looked so good with orange plaid?

Get the look: J.Crew sweater ($98); ModCloth coat ($129); Lucky Brand jeans ($40); MICHAEL Michael Kors heels ($94)

Get a Little Catty

Easiest (and chicest) Halloween costume ever.
