Happy-hour style can differ depending on where you're coming from and who you're meeting up with, but one thing remains the same — looking good. Accessorize sleek, office-appropriate dresses; silk camisoles; and pencil skirts with statement accessories and a bold red lip for a chic day-to-night look. If you're meeting with friends on the weekend, then inject a playful touch to your getup in jeans, heels, and party tops. Embrace the style cues with our editors' picks.
Fall blazers are all about texture, and we found the best ones to sharpen up your style profile. Get into the seasonal spirit by pairing plaid patterns from Smythe, Suno, or Moschino with skinny jeans and riding boots for a preppy-meets-polished look, or get into the grunge trend by wearing them with slip dresses and moto boots. We're also loving leather-embellished blazers from Helmut Lang and DKNY and tailored tweedy options from Theory and J.Crew.

Fall's key piece won't require breaking into your savings account. This season, it's all about the flirty-meets-feminine lace skirt, and we found some amazing options — all under $100. Contrast light-pink hues against black accompaniments for a grounded cool-weather evening look. Or add a little texture to your 9-to-5 wardrobe by pairing a black lace pencil skirt with a tailored blazer and low-heeled pumps. From flouncy peplum details to streamlined minis, shop our picks.
If we spent the '90s wearing block-heeled ankle boots and slip dresses instead of leggings and knotted t-shirts, we wouldn't be hiding the photographic evidence of our youth. Fortunately, Zara's giving us another shot at the decade's cool-girl-inspired fashion with a decidedly minimalist twist. The label's latest TRF lookbook is rife with simply cut slips (finished in sequins and a little lace), new riffs on the leather backpack, and shearling-lined leather. If minimalism and punk had a child (think a cross between Phoebe Philo and Courtney Love), this would be her closet. Get a peek now when you click through, and head over to Zara to shop.
