When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.
Although we're only one week into summer, I'm already planning fall looks and outfit ideas for my celebrity clients. And there's certainly a theme for the upcoming season (more than any other season): We're seeing velvet take over the scene. Whether it's footwear, a chic handbag like the below from The Row, or a great wrap jacket like this one I'm eyeing from Zara, if you're looking to get ahead of your fall shopping, be sure to start by adding a little texture to your wardrobe.
