10 Easy Ways to
Reinvent
Your
Fall Wardrobe

Maybe you’re a serial sweater accumulator. Or perhaps you’re the type who has more boots than there are days in October. Avoiding the more-of-the-same rut means stepping just a bit outside the confines of those carefully drawn lines: Looking to spruce up your standby sweaters? Go for an elegantly draped cape. Burnt out on leather jackets? Call on a close cousin, like a sleek leather skirt. Trench coat fatigue? Apply an always-relevant neutral to something unexpected—say, a silk dress.

  2. Cape Town

    Meet fall’s most valuable layer: It’s a shawl, a coat, and a travel wingman all wrapped up into one cocoon-like shape.

  5. Walk Tall

    Boots have climbed their way back up to knee-high territory—and the taller, the sexier, in our opinion.

  8. Neutral
    Ground

    The chicest neutral in your closet isn’t your gabardine trench or your trusty trousers—no, no. It’s an elegant spin on a staple shirtdress, like the kind Co does so well.

    And because every tall boot is better with a long, handkerchief-like hemline, trade up for something moodier and more graphic.
