Cole Haan
Cole Haan's Stephanie Air Oxford Pumps ($328) go two-for-one when it comes to fall trends -- high-heeled oxfords meet colorblocking. They come with Nike Air technology for added comfort. And maybe, just maybe, that two-for-one aspect will help you justify the price. GET IT: Colehaan.com

J. Crew
Mixing the Cashmere rugby-stripe V-neck sweater ($198) with a No. 2 pencil skirt in vintage tweed ($148) is a gutsy look, especially for J. Crew, but we admit it -- we're loving it. GET IT: J. Crew
