Jean Jacket + Slip Dress + Slides

It might be fall in our heart, but unfortunately Mother Nature hasn't exactly gotten the memo yet. Bridge the gap between summer's lingering heat and the desire to break out your new fall wardrobe by pairing a light slip dress with a cool denim jacket and furry slides, like Coterie member Monroe Steele.

Tie-Dye Dress + Moto Boots

Another print taking its moment in the spotlight this season is tie-dye, but don't break out your old camp T-shirts just yet. Muted neutral hues are a much more grown-up (not to mention stylish) way to go. 

Get the look: Karen Kane dress ($129); ASOS boots ($34)

White Blouse + Snakeskin Pants + White Pants

This unexpected animal print surprised us as one of the most popular materials for fall. Give it a moment to shine by keeping the rest of your look neutral. In other words, check your love of pattern mixing at the door.

Turtleneck + Ruffled One-Shoulder Top + Jeans + Flats

Don’t stow away your beloved off-the-shoulder top just yet. Wear it over a thin turtleneck for a cold-weather look that’s just as stylish.

Get the look: Lands’ End turtleneck ($26); Rebecca Minkoff top ($99); Levi's jeans ($98); Naturalizer flats ($89)

Long-Sleeve Blouse + Long Vest + Wide-Leg Pants

One of the best pieces of fashion advice we've ever heard is to always add a third piece. In the case of Coterie member Olivia Jeanette's latest look that meant topping things off with a trench-inspired vest that we're falling head over heels for.

Get the look: Stella & Dot blouse ($69); BCBGeneration vest ($55); Diane von Furstenberg pants ($428)

The season of velvet is finally upon us. Give your favorite dress (no, yours doesn’t have to be open-paneled) a daytime vibe with sharp booties instead of heels.

If you’re wary about trying the dress-over-pants trend, opt for a long sweater instead. Layering one over jeans feels more natural but has the same cool look.
