Cable knits

It takes some serious knitting chops to cable knit. Fortunately this eye-catching style is big this season and it's easy to find store-bought cable knits that don't look like your grandma's sweaters. Try a chunky cable sweater or fantastic cable knit socks under your favorite fall boots.

Denim jackets

While fall weather is still on the mild side, pair your favorite top with a lightweight denim jacket. This season's styles are cropped and small. They're the perfect flirty accent to a pair of skinny jeans and your favorite booties.

Quilting turns cool this fall thanks to subtle use of the texture on everything from coats to denim. Embrace this fun trend with a few stylish pieces. If you're not totally sold on the trend, look for small quilted accent details such as the neckline on the denim jacket above.

Tuxedo detailing

There's something sleek and timeless about tuxedo detailing. This fall, a feminine take on the tuxedo style and trim is hot. Try it for a date night look or a classic look at work. If you're daring with leggings this fall, look for a subtle tuxedo trim on leggings to wear under your favorite tunic sweater.
