LOOK 1 Add Some Leather
"I love this look because it is chic but still youthful. Leather brings a cool element to any look. I like this camel blazer as a daytime layering piece."
Ryder Blazer, $276; Hudson Short, $184
LOOK 2 Incorporate Lightweight Pieces
"Day or night I love incorporating lightweight tops into my outfits. We took a subtle approach to color blocking on this top. The skirt is a pretty silhouette and great for all body types. It accentuates the waist and can be worn with bare legs or paired with cute tights in the fall."
Piper Top, $188; Sophie Skirt, $188.LOOK 3 Give Your Look Some Romance
"I am in love with this dress. The way it moves is so beautiful. I have worn it as-is, and also belted the top layer with a silk tie to give it a little shape. The full tiers give this dress such a romantic look."

Clementine Gown, $398.LOOK 9 Dress Your Leggings Up or Down
"The faux leather legging is by far one of my favorite pieces from fall. They are a little edgy but still so chic. I wear them with day or night. They are so easy to dress up or down. The blazer is another one of my favorites. I really focused on the fit. I wanted it to have a straighter fit, but not too boxy."

LOOK 10 Update Your Work Look
"I wanted to design a chic pant that was appropriate for the workplace, but kept it feeling new through the lower rise and wide cuff. I wanted the sweater to be oversize, but kept it very lightweight so that it wouldn't appear too heavy. I wanted the fit to look boyfriend but the fabric to look girlfriend."
Camilla Sweater, $225; Katherine Pant, $198.
