Dressy sweatshirts and boyfriend jeans are seriously the best fashion trend ever, if not just for the comfort level alone. But don't get lazy when it comes to dressing up the look (and high-heeled pumps are a given.) You need to "put a bib on it" (as the fashion girls say)—more specifically a flashy, chunky, colorful statement necklace—and slather on layers and layers of bright berry lipstick.
A black leather dress is so much more than a LBD, but don't be afraid to vamp it up even further. Throw on a chunky bejeweled statement cuff (in leather—why not?) and slick on some electric violet lip gloss for a futuristic bad girl vibe.
Just because you're wearing crazy printed pants doesn't mean you need to skimp on the extra details. As a matter of fact, patterns just scream for more embellishment—like a chunky architectural collar necklace and the brightest fucshia lip around.
A little black dress can be so predictable sometimes, so make it more interesting with a pair of the sexiest crimson platforms you can find (extra points for a snake-y ankle strap detail) and a swipe of the boldest, vampiest red on your lips.
A tailored trench is an investment that will last you through many falls to come, but for the upcoming season, wear the layer in a Euro-cool way. Coordinate the jacket with leather-paneled leggings and sky-high booties. and make the look right-now with a plush floral-print cross-body bag and luscious berry glossed lips.

The new fall suit is most definitely not just for the office. If you vamp up this season's slimmer, sexier silhouette with the right accessories, the look turns instantly evening-ready. Opt for strappy, gold-accented sandals, the most Dynasty-esque earrings you can find and a fashion editor-approved bright coral lip.

A tuxedo blazer, distressed skinnies and classic black pumps (in python, please) make an easy casual-chic uniform for fall. Make sure to play with your accents though. Our favorites: an edgy graphic envelope clutch and refined, but pigmented neutral lip.
A pair of leather shorts and a chambray shirt will be your fall staples to mix and match. But when paired together, make the moody separates a little more kicky by adding stacked heel booties with subtle embellishments and a roaring red glossy lip for an unexpected contrast.
Bring your flirty white mini-dresses into fall by throwing on street tough leather moto-jacket—British It Girl Style. But add some fun details to keep the lighthearted feel going through the chilly months—like a colorful printed pair of flat booties and juicy hot pink lip gloss.
Feeling nostalgic for those Saved by the Bell days? You can at least wax nostalgic the sartorial way by pairing an updated varsity jacket with a girlish flippy skirt. And—yes—backpacks are back, but in designer grown-up versions instead. Psst. ... you can still sneak in part of your youth with a tube of bubble gum pink lipstick.
