Monochromatic doesn’t have to be all black to look chic. Try a lighter neutral like this dusty rose, which you’ll see everywhere this fall. Just make sure to vary the textures to keep the look interesting.

Own it: Fuzzy crew neck sweater, jcrew.com, $89. Ponte pants, vincecamuto.com, $74. Shoes, mgemi.com, $278. Bracelets, taijewelry.com, $55 to $90 each. Clutch, modaluxe.com, $90. 

Tip: Skip the high heels. A pointed toe elongates your legs just as well.

Menswear is in, but it doesn’t have to be masculine. This plaid blouse borrows the print from the boys, but the ruching and figure-flattering peplum make it super feminine. 

Own it: Plaid twist pleat top, anntaylor.com, $79. Burgundy neoprene pencil skirt, bananarepublic.com, $88. Earrings, alexisbittar.com, $225. Ring, taijewelry.com, $90. Bag, michaelkors.com, $328.

Tip: Balance out volume on top with a fitted bottom. A pencil skirt is good for work while skinny jeans are perfect for the weekend.

Animal prints are still going strong, and you can let them loose beyond an accent piece. Full-on leopard is fierce for a night out if you keep the rest of your look low-key. All you need for this dress is just one statement accessory, like bold earrings, and you’re good to go!

Own it: Velvet leopard print dress, jcrew.com, $158. Earrings, Carolee, lordandtaylor.com, $75.
