Getting through fall without a solid pair of boots is like powering through the workday without one or five cups of coffee. It's just not a thing. While you could go HAM blowing your entire paycheck on an amazing new pair, just remember: there's a coat and several sweaters and scarves with your name on 'em, too. In an

British blogger Hannah Crosskey shows us how to bypass pants this fall on Instagram. Thigh-high boots, oversized knits over dresses... We just might bench our corduroys this season.

Blogger Sara Escudero proves you can do Fashion Week on a budget. The Spanish beauty took Milan by storm in a Zara dress and H&M duster coat — a girl after our own hearts.
Blogger Patricia Manfield takes a moment to adjust the bow neck on her Stella McCartney top. While the whole look is very feminine, it's not overly prim: Her understated accessories and the bamboo in her Gucci top-handle bag give the ensemble a more casual feel. It's true what they say: It's all in the details.
Eleonora Carisi is no stranger to the street style scene — she made a couple of appearances on our Milan Fashion Week roundup .

During this awkward, season-less gap, we're torn between rocking our summer whites and wanting some warmth for that end-of-day chill. Dutch influencer Linda Tol lets us in on a secret: To master transitional dressing, simply bring the whites to the knits. Extra points if you match a monochrome suit to your hair.

Is it a bird? Is it a purse? In this case, it's both. Nicolette Mason's Kate Spade birdcage brings statement bags to a whole new level. Unfortunately for us, this particular style has sold out. Luckily, the rest of her breezy-but-professional look is easy to replicate.
