Bon voyage

A fall suit (one that matches)

Nothing says “dress for success” better than a perfectly polished suit. Vintage fabrics and this ’50s silhouette look fresh when paired with statement accessories.

A pretty pump (made in suede)

A beautiful floral skirt demands show-stopping heels like this vibrant fuchsia pair (even for fall). Bonus: A stiletto with a pointed toe always makes legs look amazing.

A circle skirt (like Marilyn would wear)

For the ultimate feminine silhouette, wear a longer length with something soft and waist-defining on top.

Anything tweed (or plaid or houndstooth)

Nothing excites us more than traditional menswear fabrics for fall. This season they’re given the ladylike treatment in feminine pieces like a figure-hugging pencil skirt.

A to-go purse (shoulder strap optional)

We love this modern take on a classic handbag. A purse that’s bright, structured and hands-free is the best travelling companion.

A patterned coat (try an animal print)

The contrast of the three-quarter-length sleeve with a more modern cut makes this the coat of the moment.

A boxy knit (instead of a jacket)

Sometimes all you need is a great sweater in a buttery shade to look stylish. Try camel for that retro-chic feeling we’re all coveting right now.

Top, $206, Skirt, JCrew. Shoes, $475, Stuart Weitzman. Gloves, Bag, Hermes. Hat, $20, Aldo. Necklace, $35, Express
