Do:
Wear a blouse with puffy sleeves or ruffles.

Think Renaissance style when it comes to buying fashionable tops this season. Button-down blouses with capped sleeves and lacy accents have a unique look and feminine quality that scream good taste. They are a great way to look trendy and modest for a professional environment, or you can pair them with a miniskirt and boots for going out. Shirts with ruffled collars may look like you pulled them out of our American founding fathers' closets, but trust us, they're cute and super trendy.
--Mani O'Brien.

Do Not:
Wear head-to-toe pink.

Dousing yourself in any bright color from your hat to your pants to your shoes is distracting and seems like a desperate cry for attention. You look like Paris Hilton, except that you aren't a wealthy celebrity so you have no excuse to look ridiculous. It's fall now, so wearing bright colors like pink, bright orange and yellow are fashion no-nos. Try to mix up the colors in your outfit by wearing dark, solid colors like brown with bright greens for an updated look. The only exception to this rule would be dressing yourself in basics like black and white from head to toe for a more toned-down look.
