"My go-to look is pretty casual, but I'm loving all the ladylike heels for fall. They add just the right of polish, so I can go on wearing jeans and T-shirts, but with a dressed-up twist."

"Colorful embroidery is everywhere for fall, and it's too pretty to pass up. I especially love it on denim, coats, and ankle boots, but I don't discriminate."

“I practically live in bomber jackets and sneakers, so am thrilled that the street trend is still going strong for fall. While this isn't necessarily for me, I am obsessed with the new Vetements bomber with built-in hoodie—so forward and unique.”

"I plan on swiping up more than a few velvet pieces for fall, but I've got my eye on these 3.1 Phillip Lim pretties in particular. Ankle boots are a wardrobe staple, but the crushed velvet texture and cool sock-like fit give these versions a fresh update for the new season. Plus, none other than Kendall Jenner and Beyoncé already own them, so you pretty much can't go wrong."

"Bags got a little more proper this season, and I'm all about the more structured shape. I've been eyeing Gabriela Hearst's signature shape from afar. It's all the more appealing that it's really hard to get one!"

"I am most excited to start wearing the ballerina/dancer trend. Besides the typical ballet slippers, hints of tulle, and blush-pink bodysuits, I am loving the inventive ways designers have been interpreting this trend. For example, I am obsessed with these No. 21 velvet ballet flats. They clearly represent the ballerina theme, but in a more forward and edgy way."

"Though we've seen the slip dress trend for a couple seasons now, this version feels particularly special with updated details like the lace-up side and split-front silhouette. This top/dress hybrid makes for the perfect layering piece, and you can easily dress it up or down, depending on your shoe and pant options."

"I love any trend that involves easy dressing, so the resurgence of boho is right up my alley. I can't wait to throw on flowy midi dresses for everything, swapping shoes and accessories as needed. My only issue is narrowing down which ones to buy!"

"Once it cools down, I can't wait to throw an understated, cool military coat over my favorite T-shirt and jeans."
