If you're familiar with this series of editor outfits, then just keep scrolling to fill up on outfit inspiration and affordable shopping picks. But if you happen to be new here, then let me fill you in. 

As a refresher, we drop new pieces for our Who What Wear line each month, and today, our editors are highlighting the chic blazers, knit dresses, and leather separates from the September collection. Even though nothing rings up for more than $50, the cool looks our editors put together are making these affordable buys look far pricier. Ahead, see how we each wear our picks, and then shop our favorites if you're so inspired.

"This suit is divine. First of all, it looks way more expensive than its $85 price tag. I've been wearing Who What Wear Collection for years now, and the quality of this blazer and pants set is super noticeable. I love that the pants have a slit detail to add some interest, and the cinched waist of the blazer makes it an easy place to add a belt."

"This faux leather shirt is just what my fall wardrobe was missing. The shape is interesting enough to liven up even your most basic pair of denim, but it's also versatile enough to pair with trendier items like my tennis skirt and croc loafers."

These sleek leather-looking trousers make me feel like a much cooler version of myself. They have a high waist and subtle pleats which give them a well lived-in shape. Oh, and they're super comfortable, which is a plus. I swapped them in place of jeans with the I always rely on this time of year: a boxy blazer, basic top, and ankle boots, although I'm tempted to keep wearing them while I work from home throughout the fall with a sweater.

"I truly feel you can never have too many shift dresses. They're just so easy to put on and call it a day—and you'll still look dressed up. This is especially key right now when all I've been wearing for the past six months has been leggings, shorts, and house dresses. I can see myself putting this dress on while working from home if I've got an important Zoom meeting or presentation. It's so comfortable, I know I won't be wishing for my leggings. The high neck and asymmetrical hem makes the piece a little bit more interesting and unique, too."

"I love the '70s feel of this denim midi dress. The silhouette is super flattering and the square neckline and ruffle sleeves add such a pretty touch. When the temps drop, I'll be styling mine over a tissue-thin turtleneck and knee-high boots."

"A black blazer is an essential piece I always rely on to pull together an outfit and love that this style is designed with a cinched waist. Here, I'm styling it with a pair of leather Bermuda shorts—one of my favorite trends for fall that makes outfits instantly polished but is also super comfortable."
