Tailored Toppers

Little signals the start of fall like a refined, enveloping coat. And these quiet luxuries feature clean lines and luxurious lapels that nod at minimalism’s timeless cachet. Try a tailored coat in a print like herringbone or plaid, essentials like black and camel—or chocolate, the shade of the season—for outerwear that’s seriously outfit-elevating.

Unexpected Denim

Everyone’s favorite off-duty fabric gets a sophisticated update on lean-lined styles like denim dresses in fresh column silhouettes, tailored suits, and the season’s newest must-have: the denim maxi skirt. Still endlessly versatile, it can be worn virtually anywhere while unlocking a new echelon of cool.

Moto

Bikercore is back—and we love it all. The epitome of It-girl cool, the versatile trend can be worn casually when off duty and as an effortless layer for after-hours. Go full throttle in head-to-toe leather or throw on a hardware-laden moto jacket or leather boots to add the perfect amount of edge to any look.

Top Handle Bags

Ladylike silhouettes have been on the rise for several seasons, but this year designers went beyond the traditional to update top handle bags in ways that feel fresh and new. Whether geometrically shaped, bejeweled, or shrunken to pint-sized proportions, these revamped classics are totes worth getting ahold of.

Lingerie Dressing

Updated Suiting

Meticulous tailoring takes hold on bold-shouldered blazers, trousers with an even more exaggerated leg, and undeniably modern bustiers for a look that’s all about precision—and power. But there’s still fun to be had, too, with tailored suits and separates that can be mixed and matched (and dressed up and down) in infinite combinations.

V is for velvet

Velvet lends richness and depth to jewel tones and bright colors alike—and this season we’re especially loving the unexpected use of the opulent fabric on everything from crushed velvet shoes to ultra-plush bags. Still, when it’s time to dial the glamour all the way up, full-on velvet dresses and skirts reign supreme, bringing a touch of luxe to every occasion.

Soft Totes

The handbag MVP has entered a whole new era of ease. The tote bags du jour come in pliant, supple fabrics with enough space to carry all the essentials and some. Slouchy and flexible, these laid-back silhouettes offer the same everyday practicality of their structured counterparts but with a cooler, more casual vibe.

Ballet Flats

With an unbeatable combination of comfort and style, the commuter staple takes center stage. Fall’s best ballet flats are dressed up with crystal embellishments, luxe embossment, and metallic patina, making them ideal for the office, date night, brunch, and beyond. Pair yours with jeans or a mini skirt for a look that’s both timeless and of the moment.
