Don't you just hate it when you invest in a trend that lasts for, what, all of five minutes? We do too, which is why we've perfected a strategy for sifting through the myriad of trends that are supposed to be huge this season and to narrow down the ones that actually work and have true staying power. Yes, we're sad to see some trends go just as quickly as they came in (au revoir, chokers), but there's a method to our sartorial madness, and it's never failed us.

Not just for meetings. Those red-hot slouchy boots you keep eyeing? Not just for Saturday night. After all, wearing the same piece the same way week after week is a recipe for wardrobe fatigue, no matter how good a piece is. Need proof? See how Johnson expertly styled two big fall trends into four boredom-busting outfits from INC International Concepts, created for Macy's.
