On Meyers: Free People Sweater; Current Air Faux Leather Pants ($88); AERO New York Boots

"I don't think you can have too many pairs of black boots. Black boots go with pretty much everything. You can definitely dress them up or dress them down. Go with what works for you and is comfortable. It's definitely worth investing in a good pair." — Susan Feldman


On Gunn: Mango Faux-Leather Skirt

"Faux leather gives you the look of real leather without the weight and the price, and it gives a touch of edge for day or night." — Janet Gunn

"I'm loving faux leather these days and wearing neutrals like this caramel shade as my go-to for the season." — Melissa Meyers


On Gunn: Isabel Marant Shacket

"Shackets are thicker than shirts but thinner than coats. This makes the shacket a hero piece for layering. They look smart worn over a simple white tank or your favorite T-shirt." — Gunn

"A good pair of jeans will take you everywhere. I have made sure to add some great dark denim to my jeans collection this season. For a real update, go for a boot-cut." — Feldman


On Gunn: Veronica Beard Cropped Blazer

"You can never go wrong with a classic houndstooth jacket." — Gunn

On Meyers: Free People Sweater

"There is nothing like a good cozy, chunky sweater worn with a more fitted bottom. I like to wear white or ivory all year long. Style with warmer shades for the fall and winter seasons." — Meyers

"An oversize coat looks super fresh and, at the same time, reminds me of my Y2K fashion days. This houndstooth one is my new favorite." — Meyers

"A cashmere sweater is something you can definitely wear all year round, but in the fall it's like a great basic T-shirt. Invest in classic colors. They will never go out of style." — Feldman


On Gunn: Mango Trench Coat

"You'll never have to worry about it going out of style." — Gunn
