Layer knit top in navy ($99; cos.com): I like to go to Cos for basics with a twist. This sweater is just that with a built-in layer, making this perfect for these in-between weather months.
Wool melange skirt ($115; cos.com): Clean and polished, this skirt is one that would immediately go into my weekly wardrobe rotation. Plus, the vertical seams make it extra flattering.
Square pendant earrings ($19; cos.com): These double layer square pendant earrings add just enough cool to any clean look.
Combined total cost: $233
