Fall / Winter
A solid black pantsuit is the most flattering (head-to-toe monochromatic color) and the most classic. Look for a fabric with drape -- nothing too stiff or shiny -- preferably in wool (or wool with some stretch for comfort).
A mock turtleneck is a good option if you don't like the bulk of a true turtleneck (it's the same height, only the fabric doesn't fold back over).
A great tailored jacket -- fitted to show off feminine curves, not a baggy masculine style -- will pair with everything from work trousers to jeans.
The neutral coat -- especially in a camel color -- is an enduring fall classic because it has so many possibilities.
Knee-high boots make great sense for fall because they let you get more wear out of everything from skinny jeans to miniskirts.
