In order to stand from the sea of jackets, coats and sweater, learn how to look strikingly fabulous in three ways. Bring out your colored coats, printed dresses and patterned sweaters. Oh, and fur too!

More is More
Layer on the drama for fall with high-impact color, texture, pattern and prints. There are two ways to do it, either you go bold on your outerwear and gorgeous prints in neutral colors for your dress, or you go for a daring black and white printed coat and work everything from there.
Coat $498, Dress $348, Clutch $85, Shoe $103
A bright yellow peplum coat gives striking contrast to a black/white leave-print peplum dress. Wear the coat closed on cold days or open on not-co-chilly days. Add a catchy black clutch and sexy black high heels.
Coat $598, Skinnies $159, Pullover $64, Pump $111
This black/white printed hourglass coat is very powerful and clashing it with a nother print is just too much. The best way to style it is by tempering with other neutral pieces such as a white turtleneck and black skinnies. Finish off with a black heel with some hint of bright color.

In the Mix
Sweater $275, Skirt $228, Handbag $230, Shoe $47
A chunky-knit sweater adds a nonchalant luxury to a ladylike skirt and heels. It´s time to apply that mantra, “if you can´t match it, clash it”. But since getting matchy-matchy with a bold printed skirt is considered too over-the-top, it´s time to mix it with something unusual, such as a black/white printed chunky sweater. Always finish off with an equally striking colored shoe.
