Pleated and cropped trousers are a great alternative to skirts or full-length trousers in this temperamental weather. The carrot-leg silhouette is big news for autumn and with a pair of mid-heel shoes is a smart option if you don't want to do girly.

A loose-fit vest top or oversized roll-sleeve tee completes the slouchy look, add a gold chain or chunky gold watch for a luxe touch and voila! Who needs dresses?! See after the jump for product links.
