The Menswear Blazer
"I recently styled Symphani Soto in this menswear blazer for Krost New York. I am so obsessed with menswear for women. The shoulder pads are the perfect amount of structure and throwing it over a T-shirt and jeans for the fall is incredibly chic. I also like pairing it with an oversize belt to accentuate curves!" — Theodora
The Trench Coat
"I love a trench moment for fall. I remember when Blake Lively wore a trench coat on the cover of Marie Claire six years ago. I did my research and invested in one. I still have it and wear it all the time. They are timeless and so chic! Luckily affordable brands are making classic trenches, and Uniqlo hit that nail on the head!" — Theodora
The Cropped Jacket
"Cropped jackets are having a major moment. The '80s-inspired silhouette will be seen everywhere this fall—and in a good way! Isabel Marant has one I have my eye on. Make it even more fashion-forward with high-waisted pants." — Theodora
The Denim Jacket
"A denim jacket is the ultimate wardrobe staple, but this denim blazer is a totally elevated way to wear denim and look professional. This blazer from Tibi can probably go with everything you own, and I just love that about it!" — Theodora
The Pink Jacket
"The perfect pink jacket! I love a patent jacket, and this Saks Potts jacket in pink is my literal mood for fall. I would totally wear this out on a Saturday night with a black bodysuit and black jeans!" — Theodora
