In our Ask a Stylist series, we're tapping a new expert each month to weigh in with all of their style insights. Return for a professional's perspective on what to know in fashion.

I always look to celebrity stylist Dani Michelle for her take on the directional yet wearable trends that she's regularly dressing her clients in. They're really just outfits I aspire to wear, and I take so much inspiration from the looks she is styling. Recently, I chatted with the stylist to get her take on the biggest fall boot trends, the trendy basics she recommends to all of her clients, and the cool denim trends that will take on 2021. With fall on the mind, I also wanted to find out which new-season trends she is most excited about and we'll be seeing her clients dressed in.

Here, I'm highlighting the trends Michelle is behind this season, from the cool way to wear suiting to the shoe silhouette that is a must-buy. Ahead, see the five best trends from a stylist to add to your closet this season.

The oversize-suiting trend has been on the rise and is only picking up momentum. Start out with a pair of slouchy trousers, then add a blazer or vest top, as spotted on Dani Michelle's client Kendall Jenner.

Shrunken baby knits are the fun sweater trend celebs and fashion insiders can't get enough of. Available in a rainbow of colors and a variety of styles, including button-down versions and pin-front designs, there are so many cool takes on the trend.

No matter the time of the year, slip dresses are the timeless staple you can get a lot of mileage out of. For fall, pair yours with cowboy boots for a look that feels of-the-moment.

I always love when practical pieces are on-trend, such as puffer jackets. Warm and cozy but undeniably cool, they're the fall staple you'll want to add to your closet if you haven't already. Michelle recommends a saturated shade like green to add a boost of color to your fall wardrobe.
