Fall has officially arrived and there's no better way to ring in the new season than with a remarkable style segment.
People magazine's style and beauty director, Andrea Lavinthal, joined the TODAY team on the plaza to feature some of the hottest looks you'll see all season. Better yet, she hand-picked a few models from the crowd to show us how to pull off these trending fall styles with just a few simple pieces.
The Look: Corduroy
Teresa Bradbury is visiting New York for the first time in an effort to check off one of her top bucket list items. She is in town celebrating her husband's birthday and was thrilled to be featured by Lavinthal in the style segment this morning.
Bradbury modeled a classic corduroy look — a trend that is in full swing this fall thanks to new earth-toned materials and contemporary silhouettes.
As the chilly weather becomes more frequent, you'll be paying some extra attention to these attention-grabbing turtleneck styles. They will keep you warm without sacrificing style in the process.
Corduroy has been around for ages but styled correctly, this skirt has the potential to put a completely modern spin on a classic. Find it in multiple colors and sizes ranging from size 0 to size 20.
You'll see booties all over the market this season — and this suede pair has the versatility, comfort and style that will carry you from morning until night.
The Look: Houndstooth
Kelly Edwards traveled to the plaza all the way from California — so when she realized she was going to be one of our models for the fall fashion segment, she was ecstatic.
This morning, Edwards was styled in houndstooth. This bold and timeless print is showing up on everything from blazers to heels. It can work well in the office, out to dinner or for a chilly evening in the park.
If one thing is for sure, you can't go wrong with the classic houndstooth look. This coat comes in the traditional black-and-white look, or a more contemporary multi-color style.
This affordable tee made from 100% cotton will keep you cozy and comfortable all season long. The solid color will go with everything from a long blazer to a cropped denim jacket.
Stuff We Love
These sleek, streamlined sateen leggings fit at the waist and come with a total of five pockets — a practical addition to a stylish staple.
The Coronitiflex pumps from Aldo feature a stiletto heel and a pointy toe — a look that will last for years to come. You can purchase them in four earth-toned colors that are completely fall-worthy.
The Look: Chic Utility Dressing
Evonne Lund is joined by her daughter for a special mother-daughter trip to the Big Apple. We wanted to put this grandmother of four in a modern (but practical) look for fall.
She wore what we call the "chic utility" look — filled with minimalist pieces and a neutral color palette. This complete head-to-toe look is extremely versatile.
The light camel color of this jacket can go with dark fall tones or stark whites for a bold yet sophisticated look. Fitted with a metal buckle, you can create both a relaxed look or one that will make you look red carpet ready.
Go for the vintage feel with these straight-leg stovepipe pants. They are made with just a touch of stretch and have multiple pockets for gloves, lip balm or any other item you'll need for chilly days outside.
With a beautiful block-heel design, these are a great addition to the wardrobe of anyone who is constantly on the move (or really anyone looking for some extra comfort). The snakeskin texture has the potential to make a simple outfit one of a kind.
The Look: Zebra
Jodi-Anne Paul is accompanied by her new husband, Chadwick, and the couple was in major need of a perfect autumn date night look!
We dressed her in the hottest new animal print look — zebra. This pattern can be dressed up or dressed down depending on how you accessorize the piece. We find that it looks great with a sophisticated pair of booties and dainty jewelry.
This semi-fitted top from Banana Republic can be worn a different way every day of the week. "Love the fact that it can be casual or dressy and it’s very light," said one buyer.
Gone are the days when zebra meant "whacky" and "casual." This softly fitted skirt can be paired with gold accessories and black boot for a beautiful and professional look.
Add some classic flair to your outerwear with this moto jacket from Universal Thread. The front collar and cuffs are adorned with details that will add some edginess to your outfit.
The fine eyelet embellishments are what make these boots stand out among the rest. On top of having a classic pointed toe, they are fixed with a padded comfort sock that reduces pain even while running around.
The Look: Menswear
Since the couple came all the way from Jamaica, we wanted to dress Chadwick in a style worth remembering.
Jodi's zebra outfit looked incredible alongside Chadwick's floral patterned shirt. In addition to this popular pattern, rich navy is the color of the season — and we're seeing it everywhere from cardigans to fitted pants.
Florals have made their way into menswear and we're here for the look. This one from Express can go with chinos, jeans or trendy corduroy pants.
Professional doesn't have to be uncomfortable and this merino wool sweater is solid proof of that statement. It comes in four versatile colors and will easily complement a constructed look.
Goodfellow and Company's jacket might look like it came from a high-end store, but it can be found at Target for just around $100. It's sleek, modern and comes in two functional colors.
We're shocked that these refined slacks are only $45. Pair them with a clean-cut button-down or a casual polo.
A polished pair of Oxfords can go a long way in making any outfit look polished. Whether you chose this style in black or brown, you'll undoubtedly wear them for multiple fall occasions.
