Fashion is, after all, experimental and temporary. So try different combinations of textures, colors and patterns to achieve a look that is anything but boring. Ruffled sweater jacket, lace tights, beaded clutch, burnout velvet scarf and necklaces from dressbarn. Beaded headband, printed blouse, earring and lace skirt from Banana Republic Factory Outlet. Rings from Charming Charlie.

Bring on the baubles. Join the "stacking" trend by layering bracelets and even your watch on the same arm. Beaded brocade clutch, watch and cuff bracelets from Charming Charlie. Banana Republic Factory Store ring.

Want a more conservative interpretation of this look? Stick with the gold & black color combination, but choose a tailored silhouette. Pattern mixing is done subtly here by tying a dressbarn printed scarf to her Charming Charlie handbag. Brocade jacket and dress with jeweled detail from KASPER Outlet. Earrings, ring and lace tights from dressbarn. Bracelet from Charming Charlie. Nine West Outlet shoes.

Let them eat cake! With this look, decadence is celebrated, so ignore Coco Chanel's infamous advice to "remove one accessory as you leave the house" and pile on the jewels. Faux leopard coat and draped silk top from Jones New York Outlet Store; Earring from dressbarn, Charming Charlie necklaces.

Dare to be dramatic! Statement pieces, like these from Charming Charlie, can be the building blocks to an incredible outfit.

Lap of luxury: don't be afraid to mix patterns and textures! Faux fur bolero and gold & black brocade skirt and tank from KASPER Outlet. Banana Republic Factory store lace hose, Charlotte Russe platform pumps, Charming Charlie jewelry.

Fit for a queen, these luxe (but oh-so-affordable) platform pumps from Charlotte Russe feature details that would liven up any LBD or holiday ensemble.

Full skirts, like these from Charlotte Russe, become flirty in short lengths and girly textiles. Defined, high waists keep this silhouette from making hips look large, and in fact can camouflage less-than-narrow frames.

Belting a top shows that you have a shape underneath a voluminous layer, keeping you from looking swallowed or overwhelmed. Guess houndstooth coat, Black Rivet handbag, D & Y patterned hat and purple gloves from Wilson's Leather Outlet. Chico's purple turtleneck, black pants, belt and earrings.

A monochromatic palette or "column of color" is a perfect, slimming underlayer to this season's oversized coat. Guess ivory coat and leather gloves from Wilson's Leather Outlet. Chico's turtleneck, pants, scarf, necklace and earring. Platform pumps from maurices.

Matchstick pants offer a slim, but not overly tight, fit, and look great in preppy ensembles. Pink velvet riding jacket, argyle sweater, pinstripe button down, suede flats and leather handbag from Brooks Brothers.

This cardigan works with the fuller silhouette of the skirt when the shirt is tucked, making the waistline visible. With open necklines, create your own statement necklace by layering separate, coordinating strands. Printed full skirt, silk blouse, faux fur trimmed cardigan and jewelry from Jones New York Outlet. Black Rivet handbag from Wilson's Leather Outlet. Riding boots from maurices.

Asian-inspired details, often referred to as "Chinoiserie," add dramatic flair to clothing and accessories. Look for mandarin collars, richly hued silks and decorative buttons, closures and clasps. Both: KASPER jacket; Charlotte Russe pencil skirt; Banana Republic wooden bangles and tights; Charming Charlie earrings and handbag. Chuck StJohn

Military restraint meets feminine flourish. Right: Dress Barn jacket and grey long sleeve tee. Vanilla oxblood jeans, also from Dress barn. Eagle motif earring from Charming Charlie.

No need to raid Bass Pro Shop to follow this Military trend; this isn't camo couture. Instead, the look has the hallmarks of sharp tailoring and an air of buttoned-up discipline. Utilitarian coats and fitted trousers are punctuated with traditional touches like epaulettes, strong shoulders, knee-high boots and aviator shades. Left: Kenneth Cole Melton double-breasted wool cape with removable hood, striped tee, grey slim fit jean, army green watch, aviator shades and boot.

Cuff links are a great way to add your own personal style to a classic white blouse with elegant french cuffs. While this crisp Brooks Brothers button-down came with its own silk knot links, switching them out to a silver pair from the Brooks Brothers Factory Store ups the style quotient of this look: Brooks Brothers classic white button-down french cuff shirt and cuff links. Banana Republic Glen plaid jacket and Martin fit pant, Charming Charlie banded fedora, Nine West "Bernadette" shoe.

When it comes to menswear inspired clothing, be sure the fit is tailored to show your feminine curves. The masculine influence is evident in fabrics like glen plaid, houndstooth, herringbone and pinstripe, and details such as lace-up shoes and booties, hats and crisp tailoring: Brooks Brothers classic white button-down french cuff shirt and cuff links. Banana Republic Glen plaid jacket and Martin fit pant, Charming Charlie banded fedora, Nine West "Bernadette" shoe.

As designer Kate Spade said, "Accessories are what make an outfit a little bit more you."

Golden age. Gold can warm any skin tone and is particularly good with the traditional fall shades of burnt orange, chocolate brown and sage green. All 4 necklaces from Charming Charlie.

Staying neutral. For a jeans and tee kind of gal, a casual hobo style is a perfect choice - and you can't go wrong with an earth tone like this warm caramel from Kenneth Cole. Knotted silver cuff necklace from Charming Charlie.

Grey is the new black. Softer than its darker cousin, cooler in tone than brown, grey coordinates well with ensembles in the hot colors of season, oxblood and cobalt (see Week 2). Grey tote from Kenneth Cole. Black stone/gunmetal chain necklace and hammered silver cuff, both from Charming Charlie.
