This is one way to wear an easy, smart casual Autumn look in mild Fall weather. Or, if you’re in the southern hemisphere, wear the combination for Spring. These are neutral earth tones, but you can wear any colour palette in any season as long as the items and fabrics work with the temperatures of the day.

Combine a pair of cropped, on-trend relaxed straight leg jeans with a swingy knitted or woven earth-toned poncho top. Keeping the top’s sleeves tailored and slim allows for the easy layer of a topper, like this moto jacket for cooler evenings and mornings. The tailored sleeves temper the volume of the top. Wearing a structured topper further tempers the volume. But if the top is overly voluminous for your liking, wear something more tailored. A blazer can work as well as a moto.

Finish things off with cognac footwear like these peep-toe booties, cut-out booties, regular booties or loafers. Add a bag to match the shoes, or throw in another neutral. Add jewellery and watch as desired.
