Ladylike shapes from an era gone by are fall's best looks for day or night. Whether it's demure peplums, sweet florals or ballet pinks, fall reminds us that the Greatest Generation knew a thing or two about great style. For him, it's simple plaid shirts with an impeccable fit, oxfords with unexpected details and tailored pants. For her, it's simple beauty, red lips and ankle strap heels with quiet dresses in classic rich tweeds and graphic houndstooth. We brought these looks to life with a trip to The Saint Street Inn where our couple reminded us that the styles of WWII are as timeless as they come.

Sheer little vintage numbers over lacy vintage slips can only be found at Sky Blue Clothing.

Army green is one of fall's must have hues. Pair with a pop of color like a red scarf for her or try with a neutral pant and standout oxfords for him. From Maven Womenswear and Maven Menswear.

Take a demure floral to a more trendy place with just a slice of fall's fantastically edgy leather trim on her. For him, warm fall hues in plaid paired with dark denim and a leather jacket. From Brother's on the Boulevard.

The faux fur is the way to take any look from day to night. This lux creamy little jacket from Vanessa V. over a simple black dress is class on trend.

Diaphanous peplums are the way to take the trend to night with a touch of metallic thread. Pair a neutral dress with emerald statement necklace. From Shoe La La.

Denim shirts go everywhere this fall, especially under jackets of the same paired with killer boots like the Wolverine 1,000-mile variety. From Genterie Supply Co.

Houndstooth in a ladylike shape brings the black and white trend to the office with a super skinny patent belt. From Knotting Hill.
