The Cherry On Top // ruffle blouse + red blazer

Cool-weather dressing is all about that last layer, or as I like to call it, the cherry on top! And when that last layer's red? All the better!

Choose a statement blazer in a bold, look-at-me color. Not only is this cherry red option universally flattering, it also demands attention in the best, most confident way possible. Oh, and it's perfect for the holiday season of course!

High necklines, ruffles for days, and romantic detailing are what makes the new "it" shirt a closet staple for 2016 and beyond. Worn alone or as a layer, these Hamilton-inspired tops are both sophisticated and elegant. And while perfect for the office, team with a mini skirt after hours for an unexpected twist on your favorite "going out" ensemble.

To juxtapose the polished vibes of my streamlined blouse, I opted for light-wash, slightly distressed girlfriend jeans. They're just casual enough without looking sloppy, and they instantly upgrade this top & blazer combo from "stuffy" to "street-style-cool."

Showing a little ankle is so overrated! ...JK I still love a good crop pant and low bootie, but the truth is, eliminating the skin between your shoes and your pants/skirts is having a major moment. So go ahead, wear those extra tall boots and cover up your ankles - it's trendy!

Adding a punch of print helped jazz up this color-blocked look. When in doubt, throw a leopard ANYTHING into the mix. I always treat my leopard pieces as a neutral.

These earrings are edgy and modern, aka the perfect choice to wear with such an old-school top. And while I could have opted for classic pearls, these evil eye spike earrings are SO much more fun - and memorable!

Of course I couldn't resist matching my lips to my blazer - that's half the fun of wearing red in the first place!

Equal parts classy and stylish, this modern take on romanticism is your throw-on-and-go update. Take your cue from street style extraordinaires, pop culture, and celebrity style icons to channel a fresh take on fall dressing. And never - ever - underestimate the power of a great last layer!

Although it may not look like it, these photos were taken just a week ago on Oct. 30. I know, right? There's still SO much green here in NYC! I've been told our drought is to blame for the lack of brilliant leaves in addition to the unseasonably warm temps. But things have truly cooled down lately and I've even had to pull out my winter coat - yikes! But hey, at least the holiday season has begun :)
