There always comes a time during the summer when I start to crave fall. It’s less about the weather—because I could easily live in a world where long sunny days happened year round—and more about the clothes. With a new season on the horizon and a new drop of trends and designer pieces that come with that, I always feel a fresh wave of inspiration.
This time around, I feel particularly full of ideas. I headed to Paris fashion week for the first time last season, and sitting there in the audience at shows like Isabel Marant, Chanel, and Off-White, I grew inspired by everything on the runway and couldn’t wait to wear the pieces for myself. That being said, I’ve documented my proclivity for classic style with a modern twist, so my adoption of new trends is always measured. My trick is to always have a mix of trend-forward pieces, as well as some seasonless staples. Ahead I’m breaking down all the pieces on my shopping list that will tap into my classic style for fall.
Net-a-Porter noted that “Rejina Pyo romanticized about a time when a woman’s wardrobe was made up of beautiful hand-me-down pieces,” and this croc bag is designed with this in mind. Here’s a truly classic piece I would wear for years and years—and maybe pass down myself.
For fall, pumps are making a comeback but getting a revamp. There’s a new crop of styles with revised silhouettes and updated materials—like this cool woven style. I’ll be pairing these with an ankle-grazing dress or jeans and a crisp button-down.
