"A LBD is always a great fallback, but I legitimately look forward to wearing this one," says Collins, who scooped up Mango's textured mini with frayed seams after reading "Your Look: Click to Zoom" in the November issue. "It's messy yet still looks pulled-together."

I'm a minimalist at heart (neutrals are my go-to), so I know better than anyone that, sometimes, the smallest details can make an outfit. November's "The Look: Click to Zoom" proved that, for fall, the detail is in the frayed edges. Raw, undone seams—a nod to the deconstruction trend we witnessed on the fall runways—instantly elevate a look without making it seem like you spent hours getting dressed in the morning. This Mango dress offered a subtle take on the style, and my trusty lace-up flats from Topshop added the perfect amount of polish for a jaunt downtown.
