What’s the key to working seasonal trends into your wardrobe? 
Always buy used or vintage. All style go around and around.


What’s topping your wish list for fall?
What isn’t! It’s my favorite season for dressing, especially in New York! I would say I’m most on the hunt though for a fabulous cape—thinking military themed.

How do you wear dresses in the fall?
Tights! They have so many cool options now and they are so trendy – it’s a great way to pull that summer dress into fall—just add tights and a blazer and you are ready to go.


Vintage blazer. Marni dress.

Favorite denim silhouette for fall?
I love the boy skinny cuts—they are a great transition out of super skinny and are a bit more forgiving.

Any favorite ways to layer as it gets colder?
Broken record but…blazers! I have an enormous assortments of them. And I will always love a biker jacket.

Any colors you gravitate to in the fall?
Black just always happens, but I love a good burgundy or navy, or forest green. And winter white is just so chic.

Any weekend getaway tips?
Pack versatile styles that can work with multiple different options. This way you have way more outfits without bringing an extra suitcase!

What are your tips for dressing for everyday occasions?
Dresses! They require little thought and always look chic. Just add tights and a blazer and you are ready to go.

Try something new you are excited about. Girlfriends are a super safe way of finding out if it works for you or not.

I love wearing my husband’s clothes—he had great style! Menswear fits are relaxed and easy to move in.
