October’s the comfiest month of all. It’s still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors but cold enough that you can start enjoying the best part of dropping temps: the season’s soft and sweet new sweaters. Before you stock up, check out our list of the big ideas in sweaters this fall (hint: if you like lots of choices, you’re in luck).
So says Damsel in Dior blogger Jacey Duprie. As she enjoys her plaid moment in the sun, the L.A. lady offers a schooling on how much fun you can have with suit separates.
With a loosely tucked classic white shirt on top and a simple, unfussy roll of the cuffs, this windowpane plaid Editor Ankle pant goes from profesh to playful. A solid blazer keeps the plaid in check and adds the shape-enhancing effect of faux double breasting. The pant’s warm, creamy base tone is highlighted by a neutral bag and a warm bangle. Bookending the look, there are the dramatic touches of big sunglasses and contrasting pattern flats. We could see this look winning fans anywhere from a creative client meeting to a casual happy hour, to just a day of kicking around the city.

Take a look at what walked down the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival this year and you’ll find some of our favorite trends of the season. From sexy lace and standout embellishment to some extra-sharp suiting, here are a few of the looks we loved the most.
At the premiere of her new movie Septembers of Shiraz, Salma Hayek totally rocked a curve-loving dress in the red-hot shade of berry. Lace and cut-outs made the scene on model-actress Analeigh Tipton at the debut of the new Ryan Reynolds movie Mississippi Grind, and on It girl Kate Mara at the premiere of her new movie Man Down. Kate was spotted earlier in the week at The Martian premiere in shimmering statement embellishment, a look that also worked beautifully for her co-star in that movie, a burnout velvet-clad Jessica Chastain, and for Kate Winslet. Her high neck halter gown at the premiere of The Dressmaker featured a bodice framed by multicolored sparkle.
For the guys, Tom Hardy brought his A-plus suit game to the debut of Legend with an impeccably tailored three-piece in trending tweed, and The Martian star Matt Damon used his premiere appearance as an opportunity to show the world not just how to perfectly dress down a suit, but how to wear all black without going too dour or dramatic. Also on-trend and in the spotlight: Double-breasted suiting, as worn by The Martian co-star Donald Glover and High-Rise star Tom Hiddleston.
