Keep scrolling to check out everything from Noël's stylish selection—My favorites from her roundup are the striped sweaters and pretty tops.

1. Striped Sweaters

"Striped sweaters are forever a classic. As we head into fall, it is the perfect way to still wear your summer dress but have something warm on hand when the temps drop. I also love styling my clients in striped sweaters and denim while still wearing a summer sandal, easily blending the balance between summer and fall." — Noël

2. Long Coats

"Coats are the perfect way to express your personal style—I love choosing something out of the box vs. a staple each season. I'm loving pinstripe this year, and it's a subtle way to pattern mix with your current wardrobe." — Noël

3. Statement Dresses

"When you show up boldly, you give other women permission to do the same. So go for the out-of-the-box dress or bold color—There will always be an occasion for an LBD. " — Noël

4. Elevated Strapless Knits

"Transition your cotton tube tops into knit tops, and pair them under a cardigan or blazer. The options are endless, and you can still wear your favorite summer piece into fall with a little bit of texture." — Noël

5. Leather Blazers

"Leather blazers are a closet staple. I love the look of a white T-shirt, light-wash denim, and a leather blazer. If you picked up the knit top, add a blazer over it with your favorite pair of denim and kitten heels. Perfect outfit." — Noël

6. Modern White T-Shirts

"Size up in your T-shirts [by] one or two sizes, and pair [them] with trousers or wide-leg jeans. It turns a basic into a look that feels more like a blouse vs. a casual tee. It's an easy way to elevate your look." — Noël

7. Pretty Tops

"I love a pretty top that feels effortless with denim, or skirts. Pleats and ruching offer interesting details that flatter your shape and also add visual interest to your look." — Noël

8. Black Ankle Boots

"A black ankle boot will serve you well with all your fall and winter looks, with dresses, skirts, etc. I like pairing a black ankle boot in an unexpected way, as I did with a frilly dress in this photo." — Noël

9. High-Waisted Jeans

"With the return of the low-rise [waistbands], by the time the weather changes, we will be reaching for our staple high-rise jeans, which look good with everything! This fall, I am reaching for a wide-leg or a classic straight-leg fit." — Noël

10. Fashion-Forward Sunglasses
