Inside every stylish woman’s wardrobe is a black cashmere turtleneck. You can play it classic or edgy, and it makes everyone look slimmer. (Tory Burch, Saks Fifth Avenue Collection)
Need one new clothing item to get you through the holidays? Try a gold sequined tank under a blazer or on its own.
Shopping for a puffer jacket? Make sure your pick is as flattering as possible: It should hit at the top of your hips or have a cinched waist.
Trousers are loosening up this season, so look for more relaxed, flowy fits. Pair them with something lean and tucked in like a shrunken button-down. (And don’t forget a heel.)
Invest in a perfectly tailored minimalist piece—you won’t regret it. Think cap-sleeve sheaths in sophisticated solids or unfussy blazers (with or without buttons) in neutral tones.
Wearing all black is a no-brainer, but you can’t hide forever. Try a blouse or skirt in one of fall’s gorgeous jewel tones, like ruby, emerald or sapphire.
