I grew up in Arizona and spent most of my adult life in California, so I’m a summer girl through and through and love nothing more than warm, sunny days and the outfits that go along with them. Recently, though, something inside kind of clicked and I’ve been craving all things fall. Sure, it’s easy to blame it on the scorching weather we’ve been having in L.A. that has been unrelenting, but really, the thing pushing me over the edge is the fashion waiting on the other side of this season.
As an editor for Who What Wear, I’ve been evaluating the fall 2018 fashion trends for upwards of six months. And now that all of the pieces I first spotted on the runways in NYC and Paris are trickling into stores, naturally, I’m ready to put a real-life spin on them and add the pieces into my own closet.
That being said, my approach to trends is always measured—meaning my wardrobe is a healthy mix of pieces I’ll wear year after year and some of the key trends of the season. With autumn in mind, I’ve developed a capsule wardrobe built around the pieces I’m planning to wear. Ahead, learn about the rules I follow to make smart purchases and limit my wardrobe to just TK items.
