In terms of transitional wear, this bunch of sophisticated-cool J.Crew Looks We Love nails it. Sleek leather jackets paired with lean black pants, blazers tossed over luxe separates. Then, there are the colors to love: gray, cranberry, camel, and olive — all of our Fall favorites — piled up and layered on with sweaters and a taste of tweed. I know we've said it before, so forgive me for being predictable, but we're smitten with J.Crew. Click through for the nine looks we're crushing on for the chilly months ahead.
This Alice Hannah Knitted Headband ($24), for instance, will keep you from looking like a drowned rat, all while providing a pretty feminine touch to any ensemble. From the oversize and bedazzled to the downright dainty, here are a few fun finds that can take you from commute to office with ease.
Just because it's cold and rainy or snowing up a storm doesn't mean you have to look like a drowned rat while traveling to and fro.
I've always had a thing for the classic appeal of a tassel-adorned shoe. Now, I'm crushing hard on the sophisticated, menswear vibe you can get with proper tassels. First, it was the love of these Tory Burch ankle booties ($395), but the more I see the tassel look on everything from oxfords to a wedge loafer, the more style-smitten I've become. Wear them with rolled, military-hued chinos, or a mini and tights – polished, playful, and totally seasonal.

Last Fall, Texas restaurant pioneer Stephan Pyles opened up Samar, a small-plates restaurant that serves the spices of south India alongside the specialties of Spain, and features desserts like coconut rice pudding with saffron and cardamom. Chef Maneet Chauhan, who's gained recent attention as a competitor on The Next Iron Chef, is perhaps the biggest poster child for Latin-Indian fusion, offering creations such as amchur- and ancho-crusted chicken at her New York restaurant, Vermilion. And Lisa Fain, who writes the popular Tex-Mex blog Homesick Texan, has professed her love of saag paneer enchiladas.
It'll be interesting to find out whether this new culinary direction has the legs to catch on, as opposed to other floundering fusion concepts like Chinese-Cuban. Does Indian-Latin have mainstream potential?
