Basic: Printed pencil skirts Not-So-Basic: Denim pencil skirts We love the flattering silhouette of a pencil skirt but wearing it as prints is limited. The solution? Buy one in denim. It'll go with everything and we love how it looks over a pair of opaque tights and a pair of lace-up booties (a la Miranda Kerr). Try this on: AG Adriano Goldschmied Erin Pencil Skirt ($168)

Basic: UGGs Not-So-Basic: Over-the-knee boots Looking for a comfy alternative to your UGGs? Then go for a pair of over-the-knee bots. They usually have an elastic panel in the pack so you can easily slip them on. Plus, they're way more interesting than suede-and-shearling boots. Try this on: Vince Camuto 'Filtra' Over-The-Knee Boot ($228.95 )

Basic: Knitted beanies Not-So-Basic: Wool fedoras It's hard to think of wearing any other hat besides a beanie when it comes to dressing for colder climes. But trust us with this style tip and try on a wool fedora. It will add an instant cool factor to any outfit, no matter how casual. Try this on: Rag & Bone Leather-trimmed wool-felt fedora ($195)

Basic: Pea coats Not-So-Basic: Blanket coats Ditch the structured look that comes with a six-buttoned coat and go for something way more comfortable. We love how easy it is to wear this silhouette, no matter how many layers you pile on Try this on: Topshop Blanket Coat Cardigan ($140)

Basic: All-black boots Not-So-Basic: Burgundy boots Step away from ANOTHER pair of all-black boots you want to buy for fall. Seriously, you have six pairs already. Switch it up and go with burgundy—it's the new black. Try this on: Truffle Tori Cleated Heeled Ankle Boots ($60.94)

Basic: Black or gray coats Not-So-Basic: Powder blue coats If we had to choose any color that could equally play as a neutral than your collection of black, gray, and nude coats it would be a pale powder blue. It's a soft and subtle shade that still stands out, serving as the perfect accent to your fall wardrobe (and all those foliage selfies). Try this on: New Look Funnel Coat ($95.20)

Basic: Crewneck sweaters Not-So-Basic: Fur-front sweatshirt We love our sweater supply as much as you do. But it can sure get boring (and basic) wearing that same ol' crewneck every fall. This cool, new sweatshirt style is still as cozy and warm as your favorite knit. Try this on: MICHAEL Michael Kors Faux-Fur-Panel Sweatshirt ($99.99)

Basic: Trench coats Not-So-Basic: Sleeveless coats While trench coats are a timeless style to keep in your closet all year round, a new season calls for playing with new styles. The sleeveless coat goes with just as many outfits as your trusty trench coat and gives them a stylish and polished look. Try this on: Gray Area Sleeveless Coat ($128)

Basic: Scalloped hems Not-So-Basic: Lace hems Leave the scalloped hems to your little sister and go for a grown-up trim that's perfect for fall. We love the idea of a lace hem peeking out from skirts, which you can wear to work (teamed with tights or knee-high boots) or a night out (bare-legged with a pair of heels). Try this on: Free People Story Teller Skirt ($78)

Basic: Cableknit scarves Not-So-Basic: Faux fur scarves Wearing something as everyday and necessary as a scarf can feel a little like you're on a Groundhog Day loop. But if you opt for something a bit more glam than say a cableknit scarf, chances are you'll be channeling your inner Beyonce all through fall. What's better than that? Try this on: ASOS Faux Fur Scarf With White Stripe ($57.13)
