1. Not Your Grammie鈥檚 Pearls:Pearl-embellished clothing and accessories are currently taking the city pavement by storm. Peep how blogger babe Sai De Silva offsets her pearl-strewn jeans (they鈥檙e Zara, FYI) with a Gucci belt and a non-stuffy boardroom blazer.

2. Introducing the New Canadian Tuxedo: It takes some style know-how, but when done right, denim-on-denim can be mastered with ease. Werk it on the streets with a cropped denim jacket, rolled-up boyfriend jeans, and a knit snow cap (fresh off Marc Jacob鈥檚 fall 鈥17 runway, natch) on deck for FROW-worthy slayage.

3. The MVP Transitional Summer Slip: You know that summer slip you already relegated to the back of your closet? It鈥檚 back for round two. This go-around, couple it with a thin layering turtleneck and suede slouch boots for ALL the saucy date night vibes.

4. Fool鈥檚 Gold: Life鈥檚 either a daring adventure or nothing at all. It girl Irene Kim doesn鈥檛 shy away with her disco glam mini, off-the-clock MJ sequined sweatshirt, or blue-hair-don鈥檛-care 鈥榯ude.

5. Pantsuit Nation: Show 鈥檈m who鈥檚 boss just like HBIC Jacey Duprie with a power red pantsuit that commands attention on the streets. We鈥檙e even partial to how she鈥檚 cuffed her trousers.

6. Fur Accents for Days: What? You don鈥檛 rock furry slippers and a fiery orange clutch during your morning commute? This babe does.

7. Sock Game Strong: Don鈥檛 hate on the sock game (previously a fashion no-no) until you鈥檝e tried it. That鈥檚 all we鈥檙e saying.

8. Perfect Red Sweater: Try, try, and try your luck again until you鈥檝e got the quintessential red jumper onboard (cozy, elegant, and just the right amount of slouch). Top-knot enthusiast and all-around blogger gal, Alice Catherine, makes it look too easy.

9. The Chanel Glitter Boots: Enter the hot ticket item of the season that took Paris Fashion Week by storm. Leandra Medine styles her now ubiquitous Chanel glitter ankle boots like a pro with a brocade A-line mini and an embroidered tee.

10. Crushed Velvet: 鈥淪he has exceptional taste,鈥 says everyone who catches wind of your velvet underground blazer with epic going-out potential.

11. Fanny Pack Takeover: Tamu McPherson鈥檚 killing it in the outfit game with her striped jumpsuit and Gucci belt bag. While man-repelling fannies aren鈥檛 completely new to the sartorial scene, we鈥檒l tell you this: You won鈥檛 want to be armed without one this fall.

12. Army Jackets (and Shackets) With GI Jane Appeal: Go ahead and snag yo鈥檚elf a dusty green army jacket, or in Chelsea Lankford鈥檚 case, a shacket, for unlimited tomboy styling. Her newsboy cap is the clincher.

13. Cool Girl Uniform 2.0: That new new is coming 鈥 and it鈥檚 coming fresh. Take a note from Candice Lake: Nothing says fall traditions like an embroidery tee and a glen plaid blazer draped across your shoulders for a hint of je ne sais quoi.

14. Embracing the French Girl Lewk With a Beret: Oui, oui! Just in case you have a ridiculous urge to channel your inner French girl like Julia Engel (read: You will), you鈥檒l have your fair share of berets to pick from 鈥 seeing as how they鈥檙e the accessory du jour of the season.

15. Frills Aplenty: Traffic-stopping frills courtesy of Blair Eadie, right this way. (And yes, those are indeed M.Gemi鈥檚 best-selling leopard Corsa boots.) Only Bee could make black overalls, pinstripes, and an itty-bitty bag look this savvy and sophisticated.

16. Lace-Up Trousers + Block Heels: Details, people, details! This season, embroidered denim takes a backseat to frayed-hem lace-up jeans. Throw in a pair of trend-right suede block heels FTW.

17. Go Bold: You have Jenny Walton to thank for this gem of a dress reimagined in a lavish vintage suede. Don鈥檛 even get us started about the mesmerizing Yves Klein blue hue or her matching arc drop chandelier earrings.

18. 鈥淵es鈥 to Suede and Power Red: If there鈥檚 one all-star combo that鈥檚 a home run for fall, it鈥檚 suede and power red. Courtney Quinn teams the confidence-boosting hue with a chocolate brown suede moto for a brisk walk around the 鈥榟ood.
