9-5Tone down a gleaming gold skirt with a business-like blouse and nerdy-girl specs, and your coworkers will never guess you’re taking that skirt straight to karaoke come quittin’ time.
date-nightA shot of silvery shine keeps a head-to-toe floral print looking chic — and avoids all connotations of grandma’s sofa. Add a lustrous brogue and sparkling earrings that light up a room. Trust us, all eyes will be on you.
weekend-warriorThe chunky-knit, neon sweater goes great with metallic trousers. Add a sturdy, cobalt walking shoe and a light-catching bag, and boom — you’re the best thing brunching.

Check out Trend Tracker for more genius ways to wear our favorite fall trends.
