Even though it is officially fall, the cool weather has yet to find its way into the Bluegrass. When dressing for autumn events while dealing with wacky weather, things can get a bit tricky. This week's outfit will hopefully help give fashion inspo for your next upcoming, semi-formal outing. Ruffles feature heavily in Solace London's collections – like the cascading ones tracing the side of this dress. Cut from crepe in a statement pumpkin shade, it has an elegant high neck and thigh-baring back slit. While this design isn't necessarily heavy in coverage (which is good with the high temperatures we've been having), it does offer a beautiful, warm fall shade. Embracing even more seasonal style, Jimmy Choo's 'Lolita' sandals are a perfect match. Autumnal leaves perch on slender, organically shaped straps that crisscross from the open toe to the delicate topline of a towering sandal. Keeping our bag choice chic and compact, we went for a classic. 'The Knot' is one of Bottega Veneta's most coveted designs.

For makeup, nothing says fall like a warm toned smoky eye.

Trimmed in antique-rose watersnake, this stylish clutch is flawlessly hand-woven from satin using the brand's iconic intrecciato technique. It is designed with just enough room for your evening essentials. Needing just the tiniest bit of bling, a simple pair of drop earrings is a must. Mallary Marks' collections are coveted for their unusual color combinations and the designer's use of expertly sourced gemstones and jewels. Handcrafted from 18K gold, these earrings are strung with stunning spessartite garnets.LA Girl's luxurious, long wearing and intensely pigmented eyeshadow collection is formulated to be extra smooth and silky in a mix of matte, satin and metal finishes. No matter what soiree is on your calendar, in this look you are sure to exude 'Autumn Elegance' every time you enter the room.
