Plaid and checks were another huge runway trend for fall 2018, as was the lovely olive green shade of the sweater here. I love the layering of the sweater over the shirt, and the stylish statement necklace.

A lighter weight jacket can be an excellent transitional piece. This one combines both tweed and florals as well as a striped hem. The rest of this look is kept relaxed with black skinny jeans and a silk shirt providing the base for this outfit. The look is finished off with a Gucci belt and oversized sunglasses.

Possibly an unexpected color combination of burgundy and mustard, but it works beautifully for fall. Everything in this outfit, from the scarf to the tights and shoes is kept in these two autumnal colors.

A great alternative to the biker jacket, the bomber is another fantastic style for when the weather isn’t so cold that you need a long coat. This bomber is styled casually with a baseball cap and a v-neck sweater.

This all-neutral outfit is another great example of how a trench coat can be styled. The look is kept classic, yet on-trend with a beige rollneck and plaid pants. The look is finished with a statement necklace and oversized catseye sunglasses.

A gray cape-style jacket is styled over double denim, with a statement necklace. A crossbody bag and, of course, a cute dog provide the finishing touches.
