The New Shoe Collection NYC Editors Are Flocking To

You guys—it’s October. September in L.A. doesn’t really count as fall, so now that temps are finally beginning to drop, I’m excited to be able to play the actual new-season fashion game. And why not? Animal prints, ankle boots, small bags… There are so many trends to choose from that I’m nervous three months is just not going to give me enough time to try them all out.

My NYC-based colleagues Nicole Akhtarzad (market editor at Who What Wear and the brains behind Trust Me Buy This) and Natalie Cantell (fashion director at Who What Wear) are with me on this, so they’ve been busy parsing through the season’s trends to decide which ones work for them (no neon here!). The biggest trend making their cut? “Western-inspired pieces, especially footwear,” Cantell tells me. “But modern! The vibe isn’t hokey; it shouldn’t feel like a thrift-store costume.”

In a bid to really get their fall wardrobes off to an auspicious start, the two turned to the new shoe collection from PAIGE, along with the other pieces from the brand’s collection.
