Chunky Knit Sweater
“Make sure you opt for something skinny on the bottom – whether it’s a sleek pencil skirt or leather leggings. Add a waist belt to define your shape, then wear a button-down shirt underneath and let your collar peek out.”

Polished Blazer
“If you don’t have your best friend, the blazer, you need to get one. Stat. This item goes with absolutely everything and can easily take you from day to night.”

“Wear these with everything from a flared leather skirt or pleated maxi dress to your favorite skinny jeans. While black and brown are no-brainers, try a new, fun color this season, like oxblood or eggplant.”

Menswear-Inspired Flats
“These are so on-trend right now and come in a range of colors and fabrics. But the best part? They are super comfy. Veer away from wearing them with silky PJ-style pants to avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed. Instead, pair them with an LBD, coated skinnies, or bright trousers.”

The Fall Edit Boutique opens Tuesday, October 22, at 11AM ET.
