Shini Park from Park & Cube — Toughen Up Palazzo Pants

It's possible to wear palazzo pants well into winter, especially when you go for a pair in a thicker fabric. We love the idea of mixing up your decades by pairing the '70s-style pant with an '80s-style shrunken leather jacket.

Arielle Noa from Something Navy — Grow Up Your High School Gear

Varsity jackets are the season's most popular topper, but it's easy to look like a teenybopper if you don't wear them right. Keep the rest of your outfit sophisticated (we like Arielle's riding boots and full skirt), and pile on the jewelry.
