It-Girl Styling Hacks

Layer Up (Lightly)

Wear Pants

Add Dark Denim

Toughen up summer whites with a denim jacket in a dark wash. This fall, nautical-inspired details are totally on trend.

Bring Back Ankle Boots

You've intuitively reached for lace-up sandals all summer long. Now, swap in neutral ankle boots to wear with nearly every ensemble.

Go Over-The-Knee

Maximize the life of your mini by teaming it up with over-the-knee boots—a prudent choice for evening when weather is still warm.

Carry On The Crop
