Calvin Klein
For day, wear with camisole, and for night, let the cleavage out to play (safely encased in chiffon, of course).

If The Legend of Bagger Vance, Downton Abbey, and Boardwalk Empire had a baby, it would dress like this and it would be AWESOME.

Forget The Bodies exhibit, we'll take the Marchesa dress version instead. It's at once edgy and elegant.

Rodarte
Fall 2012 is hands down our favorite Rodarte collection yet. This powder blue coat with golden skirt makes us want to go on a glamorous train ride back to the 1940s.

Aboriginal-style face paint meets the little black sheath dress. It's a match made in heaven.

Marc by Marc Jacobs
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum. Call us crazy but we love how delightfully madcap this little drummer boy look is.

Ooh! So that's how to wear a three-quarter length sleeve coat: Attach grandpa sweater sleeves to it! Clever, clever, Marc.

J.Crew
Not since kindergarten have we layered a turtleneck under a short sleeve sheath blouse. Thank you, J.Crew for giving us a reason to revisit the look sans the Fruit-Loop necklace (then again, it might look super-chic with this!).

Everything looks better with leather trimmings — especially a classic winter coat.

Preen
This is what we call an "add value" skirt: When done wearing, simply hang on wall for all to gaze upon as a work of art.

3.1 Phillip Lim
For those of us who have tried and failed to rock the studded biker jacket without looking like total posers, Phillip Lim's deconstructed shearling Perfecto in an unassuming forest green is just the ticket.

3.1 Phillip Lim
Besides being ridiculously cool, this sweater cape allows not only proper ventilation in overheated offices, but easy access for deodorant application. Genius.

Marc Jacobs
The overarching theme of his fall collection may be Oliver Twist meets Ziggy Stardust, but with this embroidered paisley frock layered over a Peter Pan collared top is so very modern-day Lady Sybil Crawley.

Donna Karan
Nobody does power dressing like Donna. Nipped waist, popped collar, can't lose.

We got rid of our stuffed animals long ago but would gladly cuddle up in this fuzzy-fronted turtleneck any day or night.

Diane von Furstenberg
Every season, without fail, someone gets handsy. For fall, Diane von Furstenberg cops a feel. Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a me...

According to DVF's show notes, this is a collection for a woman who can be glamorous at a moment's notice. With this dress? Easy.

Derek Lam
An oxford collar looks doubly as chic when it's embroidered in florals and peeking out from a paisley jacquard dress.

Modern day angels mix their chunky handknit sweaters with silk georgette skirts. NBD.

Tommy Hilfiger
We weren't those girls who were obsessed with horses growing up, but that doesn't mean we can't get behind Tommy Hilfiger's equestrian scarf prints. There's something that says "power" about them.

There's been a lot of weather proofing on the runways. Consider this coat a necessity during hurricane season.

Thakoon
It's a dress! It's a coat! No it's a...droat?! Nice jolt of matte and shine, Thakoon Panichgul, well-played.

Thakoon
