I consider fur timeless and elegant. There's something about it that makes you feel fancy. (and warm!) The pullover style of this faux fur piece is casual enough for every day, or upscale for date night. The ponte legging adds edge with zips on the back on the ankle as do the studs on the pointed patent flat.

Fashion loves a contradiction, so I love the combination of an elegant fabric such as silk with leather. It gives an edgy kick to a basic outfit. I highly recommend a splurge on a leather jacket moto as a statement piece for fall and winter. It is classic and will transcend time.

A wrap dress is a wardrobe staple and I adore anything with a busy print! This wrap embodies classic color that is essential for fall and winter. The mix of olive, brown and black make for a wear-with-anything outfit! The use of a dramatic kimono sleeve is flirty and fun, yet sophisticated enough for work. So far, this is a top purchase of the season. Today, paired with boots, but could easily be dressed up for evening with pumps. Add sparkle for holiday with a sequin gold clutch and a blinged cocktail ring!

The addition of texture instantly adds glam uto any outfit. Brocade is a flattering trend that has the ability to work with whatever is already in your closet. Today's pairing is a simple, everyday tie blouse with brocade pants. The finishing touch is my ultimate winter add-on; a fur vest. Easy enough, right?

A week out from Thanksgiving and food is already on my mind! Holidays remind me of family gatherings and colorful spreads. The sweater wraps dress is an ode to the cranberry side. The hue is muted and warm and perfect with other neutral colors such as black and white. All wrapped up with the edition of a wedge boot and winter coat this November day.

Temperatures drop and the layers are piled on! Today is a combination of a sweater tunic, leggings, a crisp white blouse and a light scarf for a pop of color. Keeping with the layering (and staying warm) trend, I added a black riding boot. Testing the waters with a bold lip, I took it one step below oxblood with a cider berry.

Today it's back to basics by combining primary colors. The tweed top has metallic thread woven into it for a touch of shine and the tie on the back adds a chic element. The black walkable wedge can easily take you from work to play as a transition piece.
Tweed Top: J.Crew (old, but similar here), Pant: Banana Republic ( great option for colored crop here), Wedge: Ann Taylor, Sunnies; Tory Burch

Red isn't always my first choice in hues, but something attracted me to this vibrant shade. The brightness is infectious and exudes a regal tone. Paired (again) with a thick heeled leopard pump and topped off with a multi-strand gold necklace and a bold lip, I'm ready to conquer the work week!

Sometimes you have to embrace the beauty, simplicity and upscale appeal of black. As a color fiend, this is rare for me, but today I'm giving in on a rainy, October morning. The slight drama of the peplum in addition to leopard pumps give it just enough to standout from your every day black on black ensemble.
