On Susie Wright: Madewell cardigan and top

"Cardigans are always a staple, so this season, try a shorter style layered with a matching top or even alone, slightly unbuttoned. So versatile, you'll wear this all the time."

2. Saturated Colors

"Bright, saturated colors are a fall trend to love… starting with this gorgeous green slip dress! I'm on the lookout for other styles in bright pink and orange—a fun departure from black."

On Wright: Cinq à Sept blazer

"A relaxed blazer fits my casual lifestyle. It looks cool during the day with sneakers and a bit more dressed up at night. Blazers are a piece I'll never give up, no matter what." 

5. Puff-Sleeve Details
