Looking Forward to Fall

W’s fashion market and accessories director selects the 10 pivotal pieces that will make her fall wardrobe


Although I can’t bring myself to buy the season’s over the knee boot just yet, I do feel like I need a good boot that I can wear with skirts, cropped jeans and dresses that isn’t too high and gives me a bit of the grungy feel. Giuseppe Zanotti Nikita leather ankle boots, $895;


The perfecto jacket is a must have, for some reason after all of these years I don’t have the right one. I am going for a red one instead of black. IRO red leather jacket, €922.25;


I have a million black bags so this fall my new neutral is white. Saint Laurent classic medium Lulu bag in chalk leather, $2,150;


The luxury sweatshirt seems to have replaced the printed T-shirt. I found this vintage heather gray one at Maje. Maje dusk eagles sweatshirt, $220;


Animal prints were all over the fall runways, but zebra feels particularly fresh. Tibi printed skirt, $895;


I love the fit of MIH Jeans – and I am very excited about the brand’s shirts, especially the Tails Shirt, in store now. MiH Jeans the tails shirt, $285;


Current Elliott makes the best motorcycle jeans, and has recently updated this style by eliminating the zipper. Current/Elliott moto ankle skinny jeans, $268;


Ana Khouri is the best model for her pieces. I was recently admiring her simple studs during the Haute Couture in Paris – these are at the top of my list. Ana Khouri pearl and gold earrings, $2,750; Barneys NY


In May I spotted Leandra Medine wearing a cool piece of jewelry, which turned out to be from her brother’s line, Khai Khai. I always like personal jewelry and this star pendant is perfect. Khai Khai star charm necklace, $775;


Now is the perfect time to upgrade your little black dress—there are a lot of great options around. Miu Miu dress with macramé lace insert, $1,445;
