It’s that time of the season again: our tastemakers email! I checked in with a few of my favorite age-defying tastemakers to see what they’re most excited to shop, whether it’s the perfect pair of transitional pants or a splurge-worthy sweater for fall. But enough from me – read on to hear what these women can’t live without this fall!
Rose is a blogger and professional stylist who has been working in fashion and home design since she was 15. Her style is bright and fun, with picks like Western-inspired boots and colorful patterns.
These western-inspired boots have been a signature look of Rose’s for years, and she says to “look for a 3” cuban heel which will be flattering and comfortable”. Faux leather, whether it’s a quilted jacket or pants, is a great addition any fall wardrobe. This Jacquemus gold chain is perfect for layering with a few other chains to get a bold look that “packs a punch and always makes a rich statement.” A midi hemline is the “sophisticated, sexy older sister” to a miniskirt, like this AllSaints dress.
Carla is a blogger and TikToker known for her frank and funny styling advice on social media. Her style is bold and elevated, and she’s mastered the high/low mix with splurge-worthy knits and Zara jackets.
Carla’s must-haves are interesting takes on basics with subtle, subversives tweaks to turn ordinary pieces into something special, like these Nili Lotan carpenter pants which are “extremely comfortable”, this textured Marques Almeida sweater where the “yarn is lightweight so you’re not shvitzing”, or this cropped jean jacket from Zara which “because the crop length falls at your waist line it creates a natural visual waist.” Finish it off with a slick of Westman Atelier highlighter to keep your skin looking lit from within.
Nina is all about age-defying women, whether at her current job at Hello Revel or her previous community, What Would Virginia Woolf Do? Her picks are full of classics with a twist, like Gucci sandals and black reading glasses.
Nina is the second woman to suggest a cropped jean jacket, but hers is from cool-girl classic brand Sacai. A signature scent can make every outfit feel fancy, and this Profumum Roma perfume in Tuberosa scent replaced her Chanel. You need a trusty pair of classic reading glasses, like this Peepers pair. Finally, a sexy pair of Gucci sandals for strutting around and a Roller Rabbit quilt to cuddle up in when you’re done strutting.
