  • Mix Up Your Prints

Liven up your look with bold patterns — and don't worry if they don't "go together." Just keep them in the same color family and have fun with geometric shapes, floral prints, polka dots, you name it!

  • Dare to Wear Daytime Metallics

Turn heads all day long when you add a flash of silver or gold to your daytime look. Sure, it's unexpected, but it works in more casual silhouettes (read: no microminis or tube tops) and looks great on heels or oxfords.

  • Try a Dress or Skirt Over Pants

These aren't the dresses over pants we sported in the early 2000s. This time around, the layered look is sleek and subtle. Add a tunic over pants at the office or try a floaty chiffon dress over leather pants for a night out. Let your imagination run wild

White after Labor Day is always allowed — just keep it seasonal in warmer fabrics. Try topping white jeans with a cozy sweater to ease into it, or style your LWs with tights and booties.
