The Transitional Shorts
It may seem counterintuitive to get shorts for a colder season, but they're not totally out of the question. Get a pair in a thicker fabric you can wear on their own for a few more weeks, and then again with tights down the line.

The Suede Situation
If you're going to make one investment this fall and winter (besides getting a solid coat), we'd say sophisticated suede bottoms are the way to go. They look good, and are festive enough to take you all the way through the holiday season.

Experiment with corduroys and velvets when the temperatures cool down. We love how good this slightly wide-legged shape looks with a vintage band tee.
