7 & 10. Harlow Long Sleeve Blouse ($97) by Patterson J Kincaid
Another wardrobe must-have? A sheer button-up blouse, such as this subtly sexy iteration by Patterson J Kincaid.

For the girl who likes to keep people guessing, we recommend both!
8. Doris Dress ($425) by Elizabeth & James
Our eyes were instantly drawn to the bold bronze hue on this Elizabeth & James dress, which is reminiscent of the chartreuse hues seen on Burberry’s Fall 2010 catwalk. If you want to put together a wholly Burberry-inspired ensemble this fall, pair this dress with a shearling-trimmed motorcycle jacket.

11. Greta Kimono ($343) by Elizabeth & James
Every new season calls for one (at least one!) extravagant purchase. This season, we’re opting for this silky kimono by Elizabeth & James. The muted hue is feminine, the oversized sleeves are fun and the cinched waistline is flirty—what more could we ask for?
12. Corporal Chic Jacket ($268) by LaRok
Military-inspired pieces are one of summer’s biggest trends, so what better way to take the trend into fall than with a studded military jacket? Pair it with skinny leather pants, faded denim jeans or a skintight black bandage dress for a rocker-chic look that is strong and sexy.
