The 3-Piece Outfit Equation That Never Fails

When the weather forces you to dress a certain way, it can be hard to come up with a stylish look. In times like these, we like to rely on easy outfit formulas to ensure that finding something fashionable to wear is a no-brainer. The latest style star to come to our rescue is Alexa Chung, who just wore a three-piece outfit formula that's utterly foolproof for fall.

While out in New York this week, Chung wore a classic buttoned jacket, black skinny jeans, and red block heels for a pop of color. While the outfit seems pretty simple, where it works is in the details like the smartly rolled cuff of her jeans or the strappy criss-cross shoe buckles. So next time you're in a bind getting dressed in the morning, just opt for a crisp coat, dark skinny jeans, and statement heels, and you'll walk out the door feeling as stylish as Chung herself.
