On Meyers: Who What Wear boots

"The perfect transitional fall shoe and must-have is a pointed-toe tall boot. I have them in both white and black and wear them with dresses and midi skirts for a modern, confident look. They are always flattering and a great way to get into the fall mood with style." — Meyers

Kelly Gullet

On Meyers: New Balance sneakers

"Whether you're heading to your daily workout routine or running errands, grabbing a well-made sneaker is as high-style as it is comfortable! I love the chunkier New Balance '90s-inspired styles, and I’m adding the classic Adidas Sambas to my wish list for fall, as they have been spotted all over Paris and NYC lately." — Meyers

Classic Pumps

On Meyers: Inez heels

"I think everyone should have a good pair of pumps in their wardrobe! They are a timeless classic that can be worn with everything from dresses to skirts and trousers to jeans. I love how this well-cut one from Inez elongates my legs too! They also have the perfect heel height and are super comfy with an extra-padded sole and heel." — Meyers
