The romance of fall’s arrival feels particularly pervasive this year. Everywhere I turn, a new meme welcoming its arrival. Maybe it’s because 2022 is looming and we’ve yet to recover from the trauma of 2020? Hot Girl Summer fell flat on her face for many, and now we’ve pinned our hopes on autumn — or as you’ll hear me talk about on Wednesday, Meg Ryan Fall(!)
No matter the era, it has always been fashion’s favorite season for dressing. There’s something about a nip in the air that makes the first pair of new boots pulled on — the ones you can’t wait to wear — feel like a bit of practical magic.
Today, we’re introducing a new series on The Love List called The Look Book: simple, seasonal, high/low outfit formulas you can shop directly or use for inspiration. And while I always encourage shopping your closet first, an outfit laid out together can be useful to illuminate the gaps in your wardrobe.
Later in the season, we’ll be introducing two other series that I’m excited for: “Everyday Carry”, which is essentially a “bag dump” — diving into the handbags, kits, and cosmetic bags of some of the Internet’s most interesting people. And “My List”, where a stylish guest contributor will outline 5-10 things he/she/they consider to be absolutely essential. We’ve got some amazing people lined up to share with you!
But for now, The Look Book. Onward!
