Autumn will be here before we know it, and Temperley London's Pre-Fall 2013 collection is making us long for cool weather. The collection has a vintage feel, but the styling is modern and on-trend. Plus, the juxtaposition of warm knits and luxe fabrics creates a cozy, yet sophisticated look that's perfect for early fall.

Want to see how you can get a designer-worthy look on a college student's budget? Below, we've reinterpreted three looks from Temperley London Pre-Fall 2013:

1. Cozy Chic

Pairing a sweater with a skirt makes for a stylish fall ensemble, and we love the way the sweater is left untucked in the above look. The addition of a waist-cinching belt keeps the outfit chic, rather than sloppy.

Recreate this look by pairing a brocade print skirt with a knit pullover sweater. A navy blue belt worn over the sweater picks up on the blue color found on the skirt. Keep things comfy with a pair of neutral oxfords, then accessorize with several gold rings to complete the outfit.

2. Polished Edge

Combining cream and black together has a sophisticated and polished vibe that's ideal for the colder months of the year. In this look, a polished pencil skirt is given an edgy touch with a black moto jacket. The fedora adds a menswear-inspired element, while feminine ankle strap pumps balance the outfit perfectly.

For this ensemble, start with a cream-and-black printed dress. Add a cream-colored cardigan, then layer on a faux leather jacket. Mimic Temperley London's styling by pushing up the sleeves of the biker jacket, allowing the cardigan sleeves to peek through. Faux suede pumps add a hint of sophistication, while a matching fedora puts the finishing touch on the look.

3. Long & Luxe

Have you ever seen a maxi skirt look this glam? Pairing a silky maxi skirt with an abstract print blouse creates a luxe ensemble that works for day or night.

For a similar outfit, pair this pretty maxi skirt with an abstract print top. Cutout wedges add a trendy touch, while a thin belt adds interest. Accessorize with a pair of drop earrings that pick up on the hues found throughout the blouse. Lastly, style your hair into a side chignon, which has a refined, yet youthful look.
