A modern take on the kind of shoe you might find on an eighteenth-century courtier, these delicate pumps would look perfect paired with a slim black trouser — or, for those more adventurous, a dark blue, violet, or bright fiery-red pant. Top off the look with a chunky sweater for a regal touch.

Now that kitten heels have made a comeback, Zara’s ankle strap pumps are an inexpensive way to wear two key trends for fall: chic shoes that are comfortable enough to walk in and rich plum tones. When worn with a slim pencil skirt or a classic sheath, it’s a polished way to look work-appropriate, even if you’re navigating the commute to and from office. For a casual evening out, simply pair with cuffed jeans and dance the night away pain-free.

While wool and cashmere scarves are classics, a leather kerchief is an unexpected way to finish off an outfit. Last fall at Céline, Phoebe Philo used oversize bicolored versions in rich hues like blue and camel to add textural contrast to her sweaters and coats. Luxirare’s sleek black take has a soft knit side that feels ultra cozy against the throat — all the better for practical minimalist dressing.
