Wear cream this fall. The color is classic and light, but it still envelopes you—sort of like the way the interior of a luxury car feels simultaneously cavernous and cozy (on that note: has anybody ever noticed how well Mercedes Benz hones in on the coolest color of leather for their seats? That's what I want to wear). Of course, I'm not coming down on black as something to totally abandon in terms of your wardrobe (or car). It'll always be there for you—just take a break for the foreseeable future with the help of:

  1. Totême Luca Blouse : Conveniently structured like a pajama top, for days when you don't want to get out of bed, but you have to anyway.

  2. Simone Perele Celeste Briefs : Something lacy and a little racy to go with said top and under whatever you want.

  3. New Balance For J.Crew Sneakers : Practical and mellow in a two-tone color scheme. Just add jeans and a solid-colored t-shirt. Sneakers your dad would wear, but a little more polished.

  4. Wilfred Baudin Sweater : Cozy enough to curl up fireside, lightweight enough to wear it with denim cut-offs and slide right into fall gracefully.

  5. Veda x Man Repeller Trench : Another item that comes with options because versatility really is the name of the game here. This one is both a good ol' trench and can also become something a little more exciting with the addition of a red satin sash. It's good—really good—both ways.
