Fashion influencer Melissa Meyers has been living in L.A. for many years now. In fact, we often tap her for her tips on how she creates her effortless California-cool aesthetic. Well, she’s now spending more time back in NYC, so we’ve also been intrigued by what she’s going to be wearing in her life between the coasts.

"I moved to L.A. in 2012 from NYC and never looked back… until recently! I have a newfound love for my hometown and decided to spend lots of time there since my daughter moved to Tribeca in early September. When I shop for clothing now, I look for pieces that can be worn on both coasts,” said Meyers. On that note, Meyers shared the key staples she’s already wearing or can’t wait to wear more of in 2022.

On Meyers: Who What Wear boots; Neu Nomads dress

"I bought these boots from Who What Wear early this fall and loved them so much that I bought another pair in black suede. I will be wearing them well into 2022 with miniskirts for spring and plan to purchase some chunkier ones too!"

5. Chunky Jewelry

On Meyers: Alexis Bittar jewelry

"I recently dusted off my jewelry from the '90s and found some awesome pieces that look so modern and chic. These days, I seem to be wearing chunkier necklaces, bracelets, and large cocktail rings! I will always be a fan of dainty jewelry and layering too, so I still like to mix those in with some more substantial pieces."

6. Tights
