Shiona Turini, Fashion Market Director, Cosmopolitan / @shionat

Turini layers like a pro yet keeps it polished and pulled together. A tonal grey base: jacket, trousers and pumps play well with a printed blouse and the navy color pop.

This black and white story is anything but basic when you pair classics with a bold statement skirt and ankle booties that play up the striped pattern.

Heres another look layered with love. An all-black base of leather leggings and a tee is the perfect backdrop for piled on prints and a white pea coat to neutralize the situation.

Jacques serves sporty to the max, balancing Met’s memorabilia with a classic camel coat and undeniably sexy red pumps and skinny jeans.

A cropped top, mini skirt and thigh-high boots is balanced by a flannel borrowed from the boy.

No athletic ensemble is complete without Nike. Rajni juxtaposes her crop top with light layers, a trench and buckled boots.

Nicole Chapoteau, Accessories Director, Allure Magazine / @chapoteau

It’s nothing for Chapoteau to whip up an ensemble that exudes effortless cool. Take this look for example, layering a low-key moto jacket and military anorak with a midi skirt and platform boots feels high fashion in a relaxed way.

Shirt-dressing is so chic in a pair of black boots and a clutch.

The mom-to-be transitions a similar shirtdress into a maternity moment with a waist-cinching style and feminine gold flats.

Tiffany Reid, Market Editor, Allure Magazine / @ms_tiffreid

Only an editor can transform a men’s shirt into a skirt, mix it with a moto jacket, sneakers and a petite Chanel purse for kicks.

When on the street, always top a fancy-feeling look with a biker jacket just to balance things out.

Take it from Reid, red accessories is a tried and true way to make any look pop.

Chioma Nnadi, Fashion News Director, VOGUE / @nnadibynature

It’s the little details that matter with Nnadi’s nomadic, gypsy style dress. Layered necklaces, a saddled-colored belt and patterned purse pull the look together.

Looking to resurrect wide-leg trousers this season? A simple zipped knit, low heels and John Lennon-esque sunnies are key to completing the look.

Nikki Ogunnaike, Online Style Editor, / @nikkiogun

Bring you “Uptown Girl” with a downtown twist is Ogunnaike’s M.O. Take this look for instance, a jean jacket layered genuisly under a biker style with hot pink, wide leg trousers to shake things up even further.

This denim look does it for us. A chambray and matching skinny jeans are a match made in heaven  for leopard platforms and a fiery tote.

A pretty polka-dot skirt plays well with a sporty bomber jacket and a simple ankle-strap style in Ogunnaike’s world.

Chrissy Rutherford, Digital Editor, Harper BAZAAR / @chrissyford

This über chic editor couldn’t make classics look any cooler. Tonal ivory pieces styled beneath a camel coat and dark shades is clearly an epic fall fashion moment.

The cozy coatigan gets cooler when you follow Rutherford’s lead and again, pair monochromatic pieces beneath with popping accessories.
