Suede sneakers

Retire the lightweight canvas of summer and invite a richer fabric into your shoe closet. Tom Ford’s Orford sneaker comes in a variety of colors for the leather accent, all overlaid over a neutral suede. The leather stripe gives an athletic feel, while the clean lines and luxe fabrics make them nice enough to wear to dinner. ($790, tomford.com)

Windbreakers

No longer for athletic warm-ups or the 90s, windbreakers have taken on a modern twist with the same windproof fabric that keeps you warm and dry. K-Way’s Claude Klassic Jacket has a stylish signature stripe down the zipper, and a back storm flap for airflow. ($54, eastdane.com)

Trenchcoat

Nothing is more iconic than a great trenchcoat, and Mackintosh is synonymous with the style. Their partnership with J.Crew this fall brings three different styles, including a short trench and a chambray edition. Our favorite is the traditional Dunkeld, which combines Mackintosh’s signature rain-proof fabric with the trench style. ($995, jcrew.com)

Shawl-Collar Suit

As summer dinner parties transition to fall galas, give your suit a sleek update. Spotted all over the Oscars’ red-carpet this season, the shawl collar evokes a classic smoking jacket and a vintage style. Suit Supply’s Blue Plain Tuxedo has a silk-covered version of the collar, and a head-turning patterned velvet suit. ($599, suitsupply.com)
