Thakoon Addition Blouse

$160 (originally $390);

The "borrowed from the boys" look is going to be around for a while-this updated oxford will be a go-to for fall.

Rupert Sanderson and Reed Krakoff Sandals

Sale Shopping

From top: Rupert Sanderson, $279 (originally $930);
Reed Krakoff, $239 (originally $595);

A color-block sandal works really well with monochromatic clothing. For the shoe, stick to safe combos like black, white, cream, and burgundy.

Eddie Borgo Earrings

Rag & Bone and Alexander Wang Sandals

Sale Shopping

From top: Rag amp Bone, $171 (originally $380);
Alexander Wang, $209 (originally $525);

These are a wear-now buy, but they will also look current if you want to put them away until spring. Try to buy one black and one white sandal at the end of the season.

A.L.C. Coat

Sale Shopping

$314 (originally $627);

A tailored menswear-style coat is a great addition for your fall wardrobe, it works over trousers and boots or with the hem of a pleated skirt peeking out.

Stella McCartney and Le Specs Sunglasses

Sale Shopping

From top: Stella McCartney, $139 (originally $190);
Le Specs, $54 (originally $69);

The Stella McCartney pair is a splurge, but the color and shape of these are so flattering and work year-round. Le Specs is one of my favorite sunglass brands for the price. The gold detail and round lens of this pair makes them different than the ones you already have.

Rag & Bone Dress

Sale Shopping

$247 (originally $495);

When you are buying sale items, avoid recognizable prints that will feel tired when you want to wear it again next season. A color block is a safe bet.

Paul Andrew Pump

Sale Shopping

$205 (originally $675);

If you haven't tried Paul Andrew pumps yet, you should. They are incredibly comfortable and the silo on the side of the foot is very flattering.
