A: Dear Julie,

Fashion director Anne Keane loved this question. “It’s so great to mix summer—prints, colors—into fall. And there are tons of great options: I love the military-jacket trend, which is a cute way to toughen up a floral print. The tailoring grounds the more ethereal piece. Velvet is another fall trend that works well with summery things—but again, choose the more tailored pieces.”
