At first thought, fall brings to mind tailored blazers, elegant trousers and sleek heeled boots. Let’s not forget off-duty looks, however—they’re an equally important style element of the new season. And, no, we’re not referring to sweatpants and hoodies. We’re talking about effortless staples that are equal parts low maintenance and cool. We looked to Kohl’s new k/lab collection and hit the jackpot. The line is packed with of-the-moment pieces (think: cutout sweaters, polka–dot midi dresses and metallic jackets) that can be easily worked into any fall ensemble. Check out the chic yet affordable essentials we’re adding to our closets stat.
