1 Black Jacket, 5 Ways, with Sole Society

Get the most out of the black blazer you have hanging up in that closet—it’s a secret weapon of versatility that can be layered onto almost anything. Check out these 5 looks Sole Society put together with pieces from Nordstrom, and get inspired!

Speaking of inspiration, we’re loving these four trends from the video. They’re totally right for fall.

A structured handbag. This Diane von Furstenberg lovely makes for a bright pop of color, but we’re also craving duo-tones as well as graphic and exotic prints on handbags.

Patterned pants. Speaking of prints, they’re still all over pants this fall (Rachel Zoe pictured) and looking best when just a little quirky and boldly mixed with other patterns.

Contrast collars. Add a little unexpected flare to that button-down with contrasting collars, plackets and cuffs. The snake-print trim on that Equipment shirt definitely has our attention.

Graphic skirts. An overarching trend on everything from handbags to dresses, but bold graphics on skirts is an eye-catching way (and flattering—see that Jason Wu contrasting panel number) to update a wardrobe staple.
