Club Monaco's October 2012 lookbook centers around comfort, simplicity and fab new season essentials. Check out the label's new style offerings.

The days of warm coats and cozy sweaters are setting in and the challenge of finding fab options to look our best without trying too hard is becoming more and more apparent. Club Monaco is here to help us with our seasonal vows with a fab October 2012 lookbook that tackles the new season with style and simplicity offering a variety of covetable pieces in the process. Proper layering is not only essential to stay warm but also to create a fun look with minimal effort.Just because temperatures start dropping, it doesn't mean you should give up on showing off your femininity. Pleated skirts can be beautifully translated into fall outfits and the label has plenty of fun examples of how to make such pieces work in the new seasonal context. However, if you prefer more masculine touches, you can hardly go wrong with choosing a boxy jacket or an oversized coat for an easy style statement. Choosing such pieces in neutral tones will greatly enhance their versatility. When it comes to new season must-haves, cozy sweaters are definitely among the first to hit the list. Geometric influences and motifs seem to be gaining a lot of popularity this season, so the choices are definitely centered around these influences. Checkers, military hints, faux fur or knits are other fun influences you can consider for your new season update. Accessory-wise, comfort and practicality seem to be the main principles put at work in the label's new collection which has a multitude of back to school style hints.
