"You wouldn't think this would work—a countryish gingham dress with an asymmetrical cardigan—but the fact that it's all at odds is what makes it so cool."
Alexandra Boardley, 24, event planner


"Red is such a great alternative to black for a jacket; it adds a pop of color while still pulling together all these prints."
Indira Cruz, 34, teacher


"Jeans are the cornerstone of my wardrobe, but I've been mixing in colored pairs that feel polished enough for the classroom with a nice blouse and cardigan."
Alissa Wagner, 30, waitress


"The slouchy fit of these pants immediately caught my eye. I love anything that can be rolled and paired with flat boots, and still look unsloppy."
Brandon Maya Johnson, 29, food blogger/chef


"The pleats on this coat are so slick and feminine. They blend with the crispness of the pants perfectly."
Cece Barfield, 24, architecture student


"A leopard-print cardigan adds some fun and interest but still comes across as super-sophisticated—totally brilliant."
Debbie Hsieh, 32, fashion assistant


"Trousers this slouchy can be tricky, but showing a little ankle and adding a shrunken blazer sharpen them up beautifully."
Georgia Kakiris, 32, sales director


"I'm really into the whole men's-clothes-on-women thing, so I love this boxy boyfriend blazer. It's just feminine enough with skinny cords and patent booties."
Katie Linger, 25, interior design student


"I'm trying to dress outside my usual solid-black-and-gray comfort zone for fall, and pairing these dark, subtle patterns is an ideal way in for me."
Terri Wolfe, 25, sales assistant


"I like how a simple cords/button-down/belted sweater combination becomes way cooler, thanks to electric purple boots."
Lindsay Welsch 26, Ph.D. Candidate


"This sweater dress is really stylish—and has the comfort level of a T-shirt. And the bright scarf is a must for me, otherwise I'd feel washed out."
