Fashion is our secret weapon—our closets the portal to unleash our alter egos. Schedule juggling by day. Secret agent by night. Fall fashion has us bouncing from subdued to seductive. Winsome to warrior. This is the season to show both sides. Ladylike skirts. Dramatic dresses. But take note: exaggeration is key. From oversized sweaters and notice-me coats to graphic prints and glam nods to the '60s. Step into the spotlight and reveal your true colors—whether you're leading a board meeting or battling bad guys. Or more likely, both.
