Check out these four finds to snag fall's minimal-chic look:
Essential #1: Draped nude blouse—This top is pretty perfect for fall. The neutral color goes with everything, and the draped neckline is understated without being snoozy.
Draped Crepe De Chine Blouse, $513, available at Vanessa Bruno, 8448 Melrose Avenue (at North Croft Street); 323-655-5300.
Essential #2: Tapered trousers—Pleated pants with a slimmer fit are the new go-to bottoms. Opt for a pair that's a bit tapered at the bottom but avoid any drop crotch styles to nail this newer look.
Fletcher By Lyell Pants, $78, available at Urban Outfitters, 1440 3rd Street Promenade (between Santa Monica Boulevard and Broadway); Santa Monica; 310-394-1404.
