On Meyers: Mango pants

"These faux-leather pants from Mango were the ultimate find for me this season. With their high waist, decorative seams, and side slit hem, these pants are so incredibly flattering—I get tons of compliments every time I wear them. I love their versatility and styling them with a camisole and a blazer, a tucked-in button-down blouse, or even an oversized sweater."—Melissa Meyers

"A slip dress is a must-have piece for any wardrobe! They are timeless, sophisticated, and can be styled so many different ways. This one is lightweight, elegant, and comes in several colors. I also like to style slip dresses belted at the waist paired with a cropped jacket, oversize blazer, and heels."—Meyers

This is the perfect piece for anyone looking to elevate their day-to-night looks this season. I wear my faux furs with everything from jeans and pants to dresses and skirts. There are so many reasonably priced ones available now so this is a must-have winter wardrobe piece in my book."—Meyers

"Green is a fun, vibrant color (my fave), and I seem to have so many different pieces in this shade now! Blazers are a staple, and I’ve been wearing this one on repeat—it's the perfect pop of color and can be mixed and matched with so many things. I think it’s the perfect item to freshen up any wardrobe."—Meyers

On Meyers: L'Academie blouse

"Oversize blouses are so on-trend, and this one can be worn several ways! It goes with just about anything in my wardrobe and will be in style forever. The nude color pairs nicely with everything from jeans to trousers to skirts. The longer length of this button-up blouse allows you to wear it so many ways—tucked, tied, and as a loose cardi."—Meyers
