To elevate a lazy off-duty look, swap blue jeans for white ones this fall. Paired with a patterned sweater and suede booties, the look's very "Kate Bosworth out to lunch in LA." Cozy, but stylized.
Sad but true: the black biker jacket's popularity has kinda diluted its badass effect. Fortunately, opting for a white motorcycle jacket instead will jolt that desired energy into fall separates.
Even paper-thin white fabrics can work in fall as long as they're styled properly, like here: lacing up booties and tossing on military jacket gives this sheer white summer dress a tough fall texture.
Worn head-to-toe, white looks way more subversive than sweet and innocent. Just make sure to pick separates in substantial fabrics, like this neoprene skirt, heavy ply sweater and metal-tipped button-up.
