The Ideal Fall Outfit, Straight From Our Fashion Director

Picking the perfect autumn outfit? Easy. We just turn to Rue Fashion Director (and seasoned style guru) Jackie Nasser.

Below, she’s pieced together a complete look for the upcoming season – right down to the very last bangle. We suggest copying it to a T. She won’t mind. Promise.


The pick: 7 For All Mankind Chambray Shirt
Here’s why: “The chambray has become a wardrobe classic. It’s casual and comfy but trendy at the same time, and works both tucked in or out.”

The pick: C&C California Embellished Sweatshirt
Here’s why: “You can dress this sweatshirt up or down for brunch with the girls. Paired with the chambray, it gets a more polished look.”

The pick: Casadei Patent Bootie
Here’s why: “These are the perfect transition shoe for fall. The buckles, patent leather, and pointed toe are really on trend and they go with literally everything.”

The pick: Vince Track Pant
Here’s why: “These slim cigarette pants are a little dressier than jeans, so you can easily wear the whole outfit to work.”

The pick: Carven Sunglasses
Here’s why: “The subtle cat-eye is flattering on all face shapes, and the nude frames match everyone’s skin tone.”

The picks: Kenneth Jay Lane Giraffe Bangle, Linea Pelle Leather Bracelet, Kenneth Jay Lane Wrap Bracelet
Here’s why: “Don’t be afraid to mix and match metals and colors – it will add some dimension to the look. And remember, when it comes to bangles, the more the merrier.”

The pick: CÉLINE Clutch
Here’s why: “With neutral colorblocking, snakeskin, and an envelope closure, this bag merges all fall’s trends into one piece. Plus, the colors tie the whole outfit together.”
