5 Timeless, Effortless, Downright Flawless Fall Looks

Seasonal lattes and pumpkin patch photo ops aside, what makes fall favorite-season material is the clothes (not that it’s a competition). We’d go so far as to say that autumn’s calling cards—cashmere layers, shearling-lined accessories, warm coats to wrap yourself up in—are the most lovable of all. And the kicker? They remain relevant year after year—which is more than we can say for last spring’s tie-dye closet takeover.

Blue Jean Baby

Crisp denim and streamlined turtlenecks feel current no matter the year—no, decade!—while a suede catchall holds its own, always.

Leading Edge

There’s something about black leather that’s just straight-up cool. Badass boots, the kind of jacket that would make James Dean proud—these are the things we wait all summer to welcome back into rotation.

Comfort Zone

Cashmere lounge sets, the supremely soft and huggable kind, are sticking around. And for good reason: They’re endlessly adaptable for lazy days, not-so-lazy days—all the days.

Bright Idea

Dark denim and a blanket coat set the stage nicely for a brightly hued blouse. And compelling extras, like light-catching jewelry and kitten heels with cutouts, are age-old outfit-finishers that have been swiping compliments since forever.

Classic Act

Fact: An LBD is a fail-safe choice year-round. Fall-ify it with burnt crimson accents (a slouchy bag here, a smudgy French-girl lip there) plus a plush layer on top.
