These fierce styles and key ac­ces­sories add edge to fall’s rich fab­rics

You get a rich mix that’s both cozy and chic when you pair up dif­fer­ing fab­rics. Done strate­gi­cally, com­bos that would seem to clash—take wool and se­quins, for ex­am­ple—com­ple­ment each other for a look that’s friendly for work and fun for reg­u­lar life. The rule here is: Bolder is bet­ter—and more boss.

1. Plaid + Her­ring­bone

Con­trast­ing pat­terns in the same hues make for a mix that ’s cre­ative but in sync. A clas­sic checked blazer looks es­pe­cially sharp.

2 Shear­ling + Coated Denim

Play with op­po­sites by pair­ing ca­sual jeans with an ex­trav­a­gant shear­ling jacket. When the fab­rics of both pieces share a glossy ve­neer, they make for an easy­go­ing yet el­e­vated look.

3 Knit + Se­quin

Dare to do se­quins with day­time wear. A hint of shim­mer, in the form of a clas­sic pen­cil skirt, gives your out­fit a jolt and feels toned-down when topped with a mo­hair sweater and sleek sneaks.
