Madewell - Autumn Plaid Scarf
Autumn Plaid Scarf
Madewell
Sold by: Shopbop

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? Madewell’s 100% gauzy wool scarf uses such a lovely, soft color palette to turn plaid into something so feminine. Soft pink and lavender mix with pale grey creating a neutral color combination that will look lovely with a sweater or with your coat. And it ideally represents the softer tones of this season.
Wear it with: We love adding a pop of color and pattern to a basic cashmere sweater, and the lighter weight of this scarf allows you to do just that. And that gauzy fabric makes it just as easy to wrap tightly around your neck when you layer it under your camel, grey, or black coat when you head outside.
Fit Tip: This scarf isn’t too wide and is a great, long length so you can play with wrapping it around your neck tons of ways. Check out some of these ideas

FIRE TONES
Why is it a Find? J.Crew can be a great resource for work dresses that easily transition for drinks and dinner, too. And this dress is one of ‘em. The burgundy is a gorgeous shade of red, and the tweed bottom gives the appearance of 2-pieces…without any of the effort.
Wear it with: The beauty of this dress is that it really doesn’t need anything for a complete look. The tweed has touches of black in it, so you can absolutely add black tights – to be worn with basic black pumps or even heeled suede booties – as the weather continues to cool down. J.Crew’s Jackie cardigan can also be layered over it, since it has a more tailored shape.
Fit Tip: The waist tie is one of the key components that make this dress so flattering. Not only does it break up the solid top and tweed bottom, which automatically draws the eye to the slimmest part of your torso, it’s wide and makes a nice sized bow/knot that helps distract if you don’t have a flat tummy. It is cut in J.Crew’s typically modern fit, available in sizes 000-16.
Alternatives: Taylor Dresses offers a long sleeve dress with a body-skimming shape at a serious steal of a price – and it’s not as short as it appears on the model, looking great with black tights and boots. If you are seeking out a truly show-stopping red dress, MICHAEL Michael Kors’ long-sleeve dress highlights your waist and shoulders in a modern fit and great price, perfect for any cocktail party.

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? As you’ll see here, shades of red work in every type of clothes this season – and that’s certainly true when it comes to this Nic+Zoe tweed jacket. The nubby textured cotton blend uses black and even shades of stylish pink to create beautiful depth and versatility.
Wear it with: This is a style with staying power. Layered over a simple black knit top and trousers, you’re off to the office. On the weekends, you’ll still reach for it with casual cotton pants or jeans and white tee. You can even add this jacket to leggings and a basic knit tunic with high flat boots for a wonderful brunch look.
Fit Tip: Nic+Zoe’s easy fit is one of the many reasons it’s always been a favorite. In sizes XS-XL, it has a loose shape, ideal for layering and comfortable polish.
Alternatives: This jacket comes in a neutral black version through the ‘shop it’ button, too. Alternatively, Theory’s contemporary-fitting garnet colored blazer is cut from a ponte fabric (a heavy knit that has a bit of stretch), for a super comfortable and easy fashion option to dress up for work or down with jeans on the weekend.

Why is it a Find? The shade of deep wine in this Nanette Lepore cardigan is just gorgeous. It looks beautiful on every skin tone, with a black undertone that keeps it from being bright. The resulting color perfectly suits the feminine pleat details and subtle embellishment at the top of this cardigan. No detail is overlooked - even the buttons have a gunmetal tone for subtle and timeless perfection. 25% off Friends & Family Event at Saks Fifth Avenue through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/9. (no code needed)
Wear it with: We are obsessed with this Find. It dresses up dark or black jeans, and has just the right amount of polish for simple black trousers or a skirt – any shape, from slim silhouettes to wider bottoms work thanks to the tailored shape meant to hit at the hip. Over the holidays, it will look gorgeous dressed up with a lace skirt or velvet trousers. We love it buttoned up, as shown, but you can also wear it open with a black silk or lace cami underneath.
Fit Tip: Nanette Lepore is a contemporary brand, but the fit isn’t too skinny, so go with your normal size (XS-L).
Alternatives: Anthropologie uses military inspiration for a cool, moto style that can be worn as a jacket replacement.

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? The port red color gives this Ella Moss sweater a special touch, making it a great alternative to a silhouette you may normally expect in basic black. But it’s not just the color that we love. The silhouette has casual ease in the loose fitting body and longer length, and the foldover neckline can be worn on or off the shoulders. The result is a sexy or cozy – and really, it’s both. 25% off Friends & Family Event at Saks Fifth Avenue through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/9. (no code needed)
Wear it with: Sure, this sweater is great with jeans, as shown through the ‘shop it’ button. But it goes with so much more. For a date night look, pair it with skinny black pants – even black leather or suede leggings will work, thanks to the longer length. And you can even wear it to work – just don’t wear it off the shoulder. Instead style it as a cowlneck, as shown in the link below, and finish it with camel, charcoal, or black trousers or a pencil skirt.
Fit Tip: You can see how great this sweater looks worn as a cowlneck – not off the shoulders - here.
Alternatives: Wilt’s more casual sweater has a super cool, layered hem, easy fit, and equally beautiful shade of deep red. (It’s at Shopbop, which means you can use your Amazon Prime account for ridiculously quick shipping – and there are always free returns.)

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? The loose, lined body of this Anthropologie blouse is the ideal balance to the sleeveless mockneck design. And the rich raspberry color makes it perfect for fall and winter.
Wear it with: The floral pattern uses shades of pink and rust, so play them up by pairing this top with shades of brown or camel – corduroys and flannel trousers look great, and if you prefer a skirt, that works, too. You can even tuck this blouse in if you want to show off your waist. It also looks great under a blazer, so you can wear it to the office with a brown suit or camel jacket and jeans.
Fit Tip: The armholes are shaped using our favorite trick – just slightly cut in to accentuate your shoulders and elongate your arms, while remaining bra-friendly. Ladies, even if you don’t love your arms, this trick will give you confidence. The loose fit of the body is mean to hit at the hip, so it doesn’t overwhelm, and even comes in petite sizes so it will work for every lady without tailoring.
Alternatives: Anthropologie has a long-sleeve floral blouse in a similar color palette that looks great on its own or under any neutral color blazer (black, camel, brown, and navy are our favorites). And Nic+Zoe has a solid rich red v-neck blouse that is loose and beautiful with slim trousers.
http://www.vince.com/cashmere-relaxed-vee-V367876686.html Vince - Relaxed Cashmere V-Neck Sweater
Vince - Relaxed Cashmere V-Neck Sweater
Why is it a Find? Fire Tones are more than just reds. Vince’s 100% cashmere simple v-neck silhouette lets this gorgeous shade of orange steal the show. (It’s called “ochre” through the ‘shop it’ button.) While available at our favorite retailer's website, Nordstrom, it's 25% off at Vince's Friends & Family Event through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/10. Free shipping + returns. (Code: INVITEONLY)
Wear it with: This rich, autumnal orange looks beautiful with olive, camel, and every shade of brown. It works with greys from charcoal to pale grey, too. Whether you choose wool trousers, basic knit pants or a skirt, or jeans, this will be a go-to for years to come.
Fit Tip: Vince never disappoints with sweaters, creating timeless looks in truly luxe quality that will last forever. And the looser fit ensures it will always be comfortable. In XS-L, it’s not too long so it retains a casual, but not oversized look.
Alternatives: Not only does this style come in several colors through the ‘shop it’ button, but Vince really got into the fire toned color palette of the season – choose from this cinnamon colored chunky ribbed cardigan, cashmere turtleneck, or this muted red cashmere crewneck with an easy fit and longer hem. And BOSS Hugo Boss offers a peplum cardigan in a similar shade that is a great blazer replacement for the office.

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? James Jeans’ skirt is the perfect shade of orangey-camel, in a super soft corduroy that has a hint of stretch – the perfect alternative to jeans this fall.
Wear it with: Any cozy sweater, plaid or denim shirt, or basic knit tee/turtleneck will look so seasonally right with this skirt. This rusty camel color truly is a neutral so treat it that way – pair it with jewel tones, neutrals, or dusty pastels. And as far as shoes go, just work with whatever top you are wearing. For ex., if you’re wearing a simple black turtleneck and maybe a wool blazer, go with black tights and booties. Wearing an ivory sweater or plaid shirt made of typically wintery shades? Rugged brown boots look great – and when it’s really cold, you can even add woolly tights.
Fit Tip: James Jeans is a contemporary brand, and this skirt fits wonderfully in your typical jeans size. The exposed button detail helps create a slimming shape (which might be opposite of what you were initially thinking), and adds the right amount of updated style. Made in sizes 24-32, it’s selling fast, so don’t delay on this one.
Alternatives: James Jeans also used this style and color to create an amazing pair of skinny corduroy jeans that are super stretchy and have an amazing fit. If your size is sold out of this skirt, J.Crew and Joie did their own a-line versions. And AG gets in on the corduroy game, with a great pair of wine corduroy skinnies that are velvety soft.

Why is it a Find? Tory Burch’s best selling nylon and leather tote gets an update in beautiful port wine red. Not only is it incredibly lightweight and holds tons of stuff, but it folds up easily, making it a go-to for travel.
Wear it with: This color is going to add pop to your basic black, grey and camel coats all the way through the holidays and beyond.
Fit Tip: This tote has a top zip to protect (and hide) all your belongings – and it can basically hold all of them. Slide in your laptop, your sneakers, your lunch…you get the idea. And the straps are long enough to fit on your shoulder when you’re wearing your heavy winter coats.
Alternatives: Botkier’s deep red leather tote is another great option, and really well-priced for leather – it comes in black, too. If you’re looking for a small bag, this suede one is simply lovely.

GO GREEN
Why is it a Find? There is just so much to love about this MICHAEL Michael Kors dress, where do we start? Sure, it’s a beautiful shade of deep green that makes the so-current animal print pattern really subtle. And, sure, the faux wrap style is super flattering on every figure, accentuating the waist and slimming the lower belly/hip, while creating a pretty neckline that doesn’t dip too low. But getting all this at an amazing everyday price? Well, that’s the icing on the cake.
Wear it with: The deep green and black combination makes it easy to pair this dress with black shoes – and black hose. A chunky necklace will dress it up for a night out, but keeping your accessories simple – or just adding a lightweight scarf – keep it office ready.
Fit Tip: MICHAEL Michael Kors is a modern-fitting line, and this dress runs true to size, XS-XL.
Alternatives: For a contemporary alternative, Theory’s deep green cashmere sweater dress has a beautiful fit-and-flare shape (and it isn’t as short on most ladies, as it is on the model).

Why is it a Find? 525 America was one of our favorite well-priced knit brands in our retail stores. It’s not easy to find these days, but Shopbop (where you get free shipping + returns, and can use your Amazon Prime account) carries it and we’re delighted. This super soft 100% merino wool turtleneck is a great example of the line – a well-made timeless staple, updated in a gorgeous shade of pine green for the season.
Wear it with: The split hem is longer in the back, so on casual days, most ladies can wear this sweater with leggings and all the essentials will be covered. The beauty of this sweater is that is can also create a more polished outfit with slim trousers or dark skinny jeans.
Fit Tip: The relaxed shape is meant for a looser fit that isn’t oversized. Go with your normal size.
Alternatives: Equally comfortable in a similar modern fit, Joie’s crewneck has a curved hem so most ladies can even wear it with leggings.

Why is it a Find? Wow, were we surprised to track down this amazing Find at Neiman Marcus Last Call – so you know the price is great, especially for a cashmere/wool blend from Autumn Cashmere (known for their premier sweaters). The Aztec print and cypress green ground color is so fresh for the season, with a timeless wintery look that you’ll wear for seasons to come. Get ready to cozy up in this one. Neiman Marcus Last Call is offering an additional 10% off the pre-Columbus Day sale price thru 10/10 through the ‘shop it’ button. (Code:COLUMBUS)
Wear it with: Wear it over a navy, cream, brown, grey, or black tank or long-sleeve turtleneck. And really any bottom works. From leggings to boyfriend jeans to corduroys or wool trousers, this open sweater can be a go-to any day of the week…including Thanksgiving.
Fit Tip: This open cardigan is “One Size”, making it a super easy internet purchase. It’s easy fit really does work on ladies of most every size. If you are very petite, it may be as long as just above your knee, which still looks great. And if you are taller, it will still easily cover your behind and have enough room to layer with comfort.
Alternatives: Lafayette 148 New York’s luxe easy-fitting deep green version has stylish faux fur pockets that we absolutely adore. And Tory Burch has a preppy green classically simple button-up cardigan that is easy to wear to the office.

Why is it a Find? Faux front pockets and soft, stretchy fabric that looks and feels like suede, makes these 7 For All Mankind the most posh pair of comfy jeans you’ll put on your body. The olive green colors highlights a touch of military inspiration, and offers an option that is just versatile as your go-to neutrals. 25% off Friends & Family Event at Saks Fifth Avenue through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/9. (no code needed)
Wear it with: The sueded fabric of these jeans may make you instantly think of an outfit for a night out – and we love that idea, pairing these jeans with a black blouse or cute sweater and heeled booties. We equally love how these look more casually, paired with an ivory chunky sweater and brown lace-up boots or a plaid shirt and sneakers. You can also wear them to a less conservative office – they look awesome with a navy or black blazer and loafers or oxfords.
Fit Tip: 7 For All Mankind is a contemporary line, but doesn’t run too small. The mid-rise hits just below the belly button – not too high or too low. And these jeans do have great stretch to them, so go with your normal designer denim size, 24-32.
Alternatives: Instead of a sueded finish, AG uses a super soft cotton in their dark olive straight leg version, while FRAME uses a beautiful forest green corduroy.

J.Crew - Campbell Pink Houndstooth Blazer
SUGAR & SPICE
Why is it a Find? Houndstooth is a menswear inspired fabric, and J.Crew turns that concept into a look that is all lady in wintery shades of pink and burgundy. The wool fabric is soft and lovely, and the quality details don’t end there – the interior is lined with a stylish contrasting striped fabric and the seams are piped for long lasting wear. (It's sold out at J.Crew, so we’re directing you to Nordstrom, where select J.Crew styles are now being sold - but hurry, it's almost gone there, too.)
Wear it with: Let the colors of this jacket take center stage by pairing it with a dark neutral top and coordinating dress pants or simple white button down and dark jeans. And if you want to have some fun, layer it over a vibrant pink crewneck.
Fit Tip: This is cut in J.Crew’s typically modern fit. It is tailored but not too trim, so you can go with your normal size and get a beautiful fit that will comfortably button closed.
Alternatives: Ann Taylor’s blazer uses a solid softer shade of blushy pink that is beautiful with grey or camel trousers. Alternatively, go with J.Crew's solid vivid pink version or  J.Crew’s skirt in this same houndstooth that looks great with a neutral turtleneck or button down and brown boots.

Why is it a Find? How pretty is this shade of pinky-purple violet? It’s so exciting to truly find a fresh new color and Banana Republic has nailed it in this soft merino wool/Italian cashmere blended sweater.
Wear it with: Brown is the new neutral of the season, and any shade from camel to deep mahogany would be a great accent to this sweater. Of course, any neutral would also work. The styling of this sweater is a natural to wear on its own with skirts or pants, yet it’s also slim enough to layer under a blazer thanks to its clever seamless design.
Fit Tip: Banana Republic has a modern fit and this sweater is no exception. In XXS-XL, it is meant to skim the body and hits the hip on most ladies.
Alternatives: J.Crew’s 100% cashmere boatneck tunic comes in a gorgeous shade of pink (called “vivid fuchsia”) for a super cozy, relaxed fitting alternative. And Equipment’s 100% cashmere, rich purple-pink crewneck gives a universal style an absolutely amazing update of color.

Why is it a Find? Shades of purple run the gamut this season, and when we’re wearing it on the bottom, keeping it dark and sophisticated is the most figure flattering. Nic+Zoe nails it, using the deepest version of purple for this easy, textured knit skirt.
Wear it with: This knit skirt is so comfy, in an a-line shape that hits just above the knee, creating an office ready style you don’t often find in sweater-type skirts. With that in mind, you can absolutely wear black tights with it thanks to the dark undertone of purple. And on top, you can wear a sweater or blouse – just make sure you tuck in or choose something that isn’t longer than hip length to properly balance the shape of the skirt, especially if you choose to complete the look with a soft knit blazer or longer open cardigan.
Fit Tip: In XS-XL and Petites, Nic+Zoe’s easy, modern fit will go on with ease for every lady.
Alternatives: It comes in ivory and black through the ‘shop it’ button, as well.

Why is it a Find? We know color can be tricky in bottoms - these J.Crew corduroys are anything but that. The pale rose pink is so fresh for the season, in a style that is easy to wear with all the neutrals already in your closet. And the stretch corduroy is so soft, you may not want to take them off. 30% off at J.Crew through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/11. (Code: YESPLEASE)
Wear it with: Soft grey and camel look gorgeous with this color, especially any yummy cashmere sweater. And there’s much more you can do with these pants. Prints look amazing – you can see that in the shoes here. And your favorite navy or black blazer instantly ground them for the office. Tailored booties work perfectly with the ankle length once the weather gets too cold for flats or pumps.
Fit Tip: The slightly higher and wider waistband accentuates the slimmest part of your torso and creates an elongating silhouette with the slightly cropped leg. The bit of flare to the hem effortlessly provides balance to the hip area, so there is no reason to hesitate on going for this paler hue. They are cut in J.Crew’s typically modern fit, and come in Petite and Tall, so tailoring won’t be necessary for most.
Alternatives: The fit is so great, you may want to partake in one of the other colors offered through the ‘shop it’ button, as well.

Vince - Elbow Sleeve Cashmere Sweater
Why is it a Find? Leave it to Vince to design a perfectly timeless cashmere sweater in an equally perfect shade of dusty pink. Sure, it’s a hot color right now, but they’ve created the ideal neutral shade – with a creamy tan undertone – so you’ll wear it for years to come. The cashmere is soft as can be, and not too heavy so you can even wear it over a button down if you want to play with a tailored, layered look. While available at our favorite retailer's website, Nordstrom, it's 25% off at Vince's Friends & Family Event through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/10. Free shipping + returns. (Code: INVITEONLY)
Wear it with: Once you click through the ‘shop it’ button, you can see how great this sweater looks with charcoal work ready trousers. And it looks just as good with slim pants. Black, brown, navy or camel all look great. Olive green and any shade of denim give it a modern edge.
Fit Tip: Elbow length sleeves are always flattering, and flawlessly balance the longer length of this sweater, while remaining winter appropriate. Vince’s sweaters are generally cut for a looser fit, and that is true here. Not oversized as many Vince sweaters, it is still easy in shape, so if you are between sizes, you can size down (especially if you are petite).
Alternatives: It comes in a couple other great neutrals through the ‘shop it’ button, too.

Alternatives: Shades of pink in a plaid scarf, beautifully feminine suede pumps, or a great pair of earrings will all add some lady-like accents to your outfit.

Why is it a Find? When we are talking about neutrals, we can’t ignore the LBD. Whatever the season’s new styles, a Little Black Dress will always get you through in a pinch. Rebecca Taylor’s version is the perfect fabric and cut, making it a safe and beautiful "go-to" any time of year. Whether you’re feeling your best or not, you’ll look your best in this one. 25% off Friends & Family Event at Saks Fifth Avenue through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/9. (no code needed)
Wear it with: This is seriously a timeless style, and can be worn pretty much year round. Bare legs or black hose, sexy heeled booties, open dress sandals, or classic pumps all work – this dress conforms to every style. Add a statement necklace for some holiday fun. A fitted cardigan or wrap also looks great with this dress – truly, worth every penny.
Fit Tip: Rebecca Taylor is a contemporary line, but we love that it’s not cut too slim – it’s more of a modern fit in updated styling. The v-neck works for every chest size and isn’t too plunging, so it’s appropriate for a work event and something a lot more fun. The textured diamond pique fabric is insanely smoothing, with stretch that doesn’t cling. The a-line shape seals in the perfection, and the length is just right – not too short, like many little dresses can be. This one flatters every lady we’ve seen it on.
Alternatives: If you prefer a short sleeve, elbow-length sleeve, ¾-length sleeve, or long-sleeve, there’s a timeless black dress for you – make sure you have a great one hanging in your closet, waiting for you.

Why is it a Find? The simple ivory color and relaxed fit of this Joie sweater lets the back lace detail be the star of the show. And we love how it offers a little sex appeal, while still being bra-friendly and not too over the top, giving this sweater a lot of versatility for casual wear, a night out, or some holiday fun. 25% off Friends & Family Event at Saks Fifth Avenue through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/9. (no code needed)
Wear it with: The cream color is soft and feminine, perfect with the lace detail, so there are lots of ways to wear this sweater. To give it a little edge, suede or leather-like leggings make for a fabulous night out look – and it’s long enough on most ladies to easily cover your behind and hips. For a sophisticated look, wear it with wool trousers in any color, and give it a casual feel with your favorite skinny jeans and booties.
Fit Tip: Joie is one of our favorite brands for good reason – the modern fit is cut for comfort without being too oversized…and you can always get multiples seasons worth of wear out of the pieces, thanks to the great quality and modern styling that isn’t overly trendy. Go with your normal size, XXS-L, and if you are between sizes, you can size down.
Alternatives: For something a little more dressed up, Elie Tahari’s modern-fitting silk and lace blouse uses white silk and black lace for a graphic stunner.

Theory - Saline B. Cashmere Sweater
Why is it a Find? Theory’s clean, upscale aesthetic is on full display with this gorgeous cashmere sweater. With shoulder details being so big this season, we love how it’s designed with straps to create a layered look that is bra-friendly. The yummy 100% cashmere is just pure luxury.
Wear it with: While not necessary on most, you can wear a tank or cami underneath – click through the ‘shop it’ button to see how that looks on the grey version of this sweater. Beautiful with a slim skirt of any length trousers, this sweater is just as chic with slouchy jeans. The clean lines allows you to wear it with prints or solids (in truly any color). It can stand up to any statement jewelry, while simply chic without any. It’s one of those simple blank slates that works with everything – and thanks to Theory’s wonderful quality - you’ll reach for it over and over.
Fit Tip: Theory is a contemporary brand, with a generally slimmer fit, but this sweater has an easy cut through the torso, so go with your normal size.
Alternatives: Theory’s own site also offers a lovely ivory/black combination. 25% off Friends & Family Event at Theory through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/11. Free shipping + returns (Code: FRIENDS)

Why is it a Find? Brown has definitely reemerged as one of the key neutral colors of the season. So update your basic black go-to ponte pants with this brown version (called "River Rock" through the 'shop it' button) from Nic+Zoe.
Wear it with: It’s just the right shade to work with everything, including black, giving new life to all your black tops. The thicker ponte fabric is smoothing, so you can wear it with tops that hit just at the hip, tucked in, or something longer. We love them with a classic denim button down shirt and blazer, cozy sweater, or silky blouse. And any shoes work – from ballet flats and loafers to heels or stylish boots.
Fit Tip: From XS-XL, Nic+Zoe has a winning modern fit that always works for the Mark Shale lady.
Alternatives: Ann Taylor’s brown pull-on merino wool skirt has a beautifully flattering knot waist detail. For a contemporary take on brown, Blank Denim’s faux leather leggings will make any night-out outfit look fabulously updated and chic.

Why is it a Find? Plaid is just as prevalent this season as it has been in seasons past. And Eileen Fisher’s interprets it with shades of brown in wool fabric that is woven in Italy for an airy feel so it will keep you warm without giving you a hot flash. 25% off Friends & Family Event at Saks Fifth Avenue through the ‘shop it’ button thru 10/9. (no code needed)
Wear it with: As you can see in the image shown, the neutral color combination goes with black or navy, just as easily as it layers over any shade of brown, thanks to the mix of shades from rusty brown to yarns of grey. And of course, it’s gorgeous over any of the color pops we’ve been talking about today – that’s the beauty of it. The oversized shape can save you when you are stepping out in your tee and leggings, and add a work ready finish to simple trousers and basic top.
Fit Tip: Petite ladies, rejoice. We know these blanket styles can overwhelm a small frame, but it’s offered in Petite at Nordstrom.
Alternatives: The nutmeg color we’re featuring is our top Find, but Nordstrom offers it in several colors, too. And they have a pretty solid brown in a wool/cashmere blend.

Why is it a Find?. These Vince booties will just get better with age, in a gorgeous shade of burnished brown that is just too cool to ignore. The heel height makes them the perfect choice for a day of casual walking around, yet the almond shaped toe and sleek design means they’ll work with items in your closet that have a tailored work-appropriate feel, too. Nordstom is price matching 25% off while Vince has their 25% off Friends & Family Event thru 10/9. (no code needed)
Wear it with: This gorgeously rich shade of caramel brown goes with black, just as easily as it pairs with browns, denim, and pretty jewel tones (like forest green, or wine red). The shaft comes above the ankle, which makes them a great option for all the cropped styles that are prevalent this season, and they are fitted enough to work with skinny jeans or smoothly lay under wider legs.
Fit Tip: Nordstrom, through the ‘shop it’ button, suggests they run small. But we’ve found them true to size. If your foot is wider and you’re between sizes, you may wish to size up.
Alternatives: They come in black through the ‘shop it’ button, too. If you are looking for something dressier, these rust colored suede heeled loafers work with skirts and pants – ideal for work and just as pretty with jeans for a night out.
