I'm a Fashion Editor in NYC—Here Are 4 Outfits I'm Low-Key Living in RN

If you've ever muttered to yourself, "What should I wear?" while deep diving into your closet, just know that you're not the only one. This is a weekly conversation I have in my household when I'm seriously stumped. Yes, I live alone and like to think of these moments of dialogue as breaking the fourth wall. One of my resolutions to this eternal indecisiveness comes in the form of a camera roll folder including some of my latest outfits that are easily re-creatable. I decided to take my role as a fashion editor quite seriously and organize said iPhone folder into a shoppable story that we can both come back to for a reference when in need of some fresh inspiration.

Every time a new season arises, I find myself searching for wardrobe staples that are working double-time to be both on-trend and timeless. I spent this fall searching high and low for transitional items that I can wear from now until spring and I'm happy to be able to say for myself, so far so good. You'll never be asking, "what should I wear," again when you open your closet to find a plethora of ingredients to copy the standout outfit ideas that I created for us. Think sweater trends that have been chic for ages but are currently having a resurgence and a 2022 update on last year's classic. Read on to discover these standout pieces I predict that we'll both be living in this winter.

The Layer-Worthy Top

My goal when getting dressed is to look like a fashion pro and one of the best ways to showcase my skills is by having fun with layering. Nothing really makes a piece feel like your own than combining different textures and layers to create a look that's uniquely yours. 

This sweater vest was designed to be worn inside-out for a 2022 update on a universally favorited winter trend.

I have worn this puff-sleeve blouse a million and one ways since it entered my closet.

My favorite thing about my black flare jeans is they give me instant height. This time I cuffed them for a whole new look on my winter staple.

Another purchase you'll definitely catch me repeating, these sunglasses may have been the best 15 bucks I've ever spent.

This top can go from business, when layered with a white blouse, to a night out when worn solo—obviously I instantly added it to my wishlist. 

We're still predicting that people who soon shift their focus from knit vests to one of our tailored favorites. The button detail on this top takes it to the next level.

White and cream go oh so well together and this vest is a great way to start making that pairing.

Any color combination that reminds me of Thanksgiving dinner is a good one.

The Knit Pants

The only thing I love more than this statement sweater is the knitted pants that magically match it perfectly. Ribbed to perfection, this is a combination that I fully stand behind. 

The most comfortable pants I've ever worn.

There's just something about a statement knit that makes me swoon.

Just put on these hoops and you'll look dressed up—even in PJs.

I finished this look off with a stiletto boot to make my point that this is far more than just a work-from-home outfit.

I love my winter whites.

These pants come with a matching tank and cardigan—I need the whole set.

These pants have been an editor-fave and they're finally on sale.

Pairing these pants with the matching pajama top would make me feel like a queen in my 500 square foot castle.

The Wear-Everywhere Dress

No matter how cold it gets in NYC, you'll still catch me out and about wearing my favorite dresses with a classic blazer to match. To keep my legs warm, I pair my favorite midis with knee-high boots.

The halter strap and belt are removable meaning there are many ways you could go with this one.

I wore the lipstick that everyone is talking about with this look and was instantly sold.

You'll never regret buying a black blazer.

This shoe looks like walking on a cloud so I'm here for it.

My team has been buzzing about orange this year and I think this dress solidifies the argument.

This dress is giving me French-girl vibes.

This flowy dress packs a powerful punch. 

There's nothing more flattering than a bit of ruching. 

The Fair Isle Sweater

Statement sweaters have been trending for some time now, but this year, amongst all of the noise, a niche sweater trend is on the rise. The Fair Isle sweater is known for gracing the shoulders of many polished fashion icons such as Princess Diana so you will feel quite royal in it as well.

I took the phrase "wear your heart on your sleeve" very seriously.

My cropped navy turtleneck gets me a lot of places.

These boots were the first move I made when the temperatures dropped.

There are slits at the ankles here that are just so flattering.

This subtle approach to the traditional Fair Isle print is perfect for minimalists.

This shade of yellow makes me feel some type of way.

I'm sure you already know how I feel about a matching set.

This one comes in so many colors and prints that it was hard to show you just one.
