While looking back on the trends from Milan Fashion Week is a super valuable way to prep for the seasons ahead, we're taking things one step further by keeping a keen eye out for styling tricks to steal right now. In New York, it was all about tonal dressing and layering with a turtleneck. At London Fashion Week, we picked up on red accessories and extending the life of our minis. Now that the runway shows in Italy are over, we're sharing three more outfit ideas to spice up your wardrobe.

The One-Button Coat Closure

Capes are all the rage, but if you don't have one in your closet, don't fret: Fake that easy caped look by buttoning only the top closure on your coat. It's a chic way to stay warm but also show off whatever stylish outfit is hiding underneath. Plus, now is the perfect time to try out this look—walking with an open coat is a little more bearable as the weather heats up into spring!

Swap Out a Statement Necklace for a Ribbon

Give your gemstones and chunky chains a rest by opting for a ribbon instead. This feminine alternative to a statement necklace provides a new eye-catching way to complement your ensemble. From thin to thick, give any outfit a dainty touch just by tying on your favorite trimming.

Pair a Peplum Top with Cropped Trousers

Wide-leg pants are huge for Fall 2015. While the standard train of thought is to pair loose bottoms with a fitted top, we love the unexpected look created by pairing a peplum top with cropped pants. The draped effect of the waistline mimics the flared-out pant legs, which is totally striking. Don't be afraid to go bold by pairing these two silhouettes together at home—you'll look like a street style star, we promise.
