Billy Joel, most famous for his hit "Piano Man", has been a prominent part of the rock-'n'-roll scene since the '70s. He is one of my favorite artists of all time, and his music is lots of fun -- there aren't many genres he can't perform! 

This song, "Tell Her About It", debuted on his album "An Innocent Man" in 1983. In the piece, Billy makes use of lots of different big-band instruments to create a full, swingy sound that's perfect for a solo dance sesh around your dorm! 

Check out the music vid below: 

Read on for 3 looks inspired by the video! 

1. Tell Her Everything You Feel

One of my favorite trends this fall is the preppy collegiate vibe. The actor channels that look in this scene... but we can make it a little more 21st-century...

Products: Sweater // Blouse // Skirt // Booties // Backpack

Pair two basics, a black sweater and white button-down, for a totally classic look. Add a trendy twist with a suede mini skirt and booties in a statement color (this cranberry hue has stolen my heart). Carry your books in a faux leather satchel.

This is elegant loungewear if I ever saw it! Definitely a step above my typical leggings and baggy tee (sorry not sorry).

Products: Romper // Cardigan // Socks // Headwrap

Take your summer romper into fall loungewear territory by pairing it with a cozy cardigan. Add your favorite pair of cute socks and a knit headwrap. Boom! Perfect Chinese food-ordering and Netflix-watching attire. 

3. Never Let Her Go

Blazers have taken center stage this season (thanks, Kardashians!), and they come in such a broad range of colors: pastels, prints, and of course, classic neutrals. A crisp white one is both a wardrobe staple and a statement piece!

Products: Blazer // Pants // Top // Flats // Necklace 

Make a white piece pop against a black backdrop. Wear this blazer over some (faux) leather pants, a black top, and black shoes -- I love the lace-up flat trend! Finish off with a statement necklace to add a little interest.
