She has a sense of what pieces can potentially help build a solid wardrobe.

She actually recently shared the eight-piece early fall wardrobe that she really thinks could work for everyone because the pieces are versatile and lean into that modern-yet-classic territory. 

Keep scrolling to check out visual inspiration from Meyers along with insights into the pieces she deems as fall wardrobe staples. If you’re interested in shopping, you’ll also uncover a range of product recommendations. 

On Meyers: Alohas trousers and pumps; Vintage YSL blouse; Prada bag. “These items are an ongoing part of my capsule collection, especially for fall. I always love a good trouser-and-blouse combo for a more sophisticated look. Just add a classic leather bag and pumps to complete the look.”

On Meyers: Michael Stars dress. “I love this ‘not so basic’ black dress by Michael Stars—the fabric is soft and stretchy, so you don’t have to trade style for comfort. The ruching at the sides gives shape to the super-flattering waist. The perfect transitional piece, this dress will take you from day to night.”

On Meyers: Who What Wear Collection boots. “It’s all about the high boots again this season! Wearing these can elevate any look, and I’m definitely going to be pairing many fall outfits with them. They are also super versatile since they can be worn with everything from jeans to dresses and skirts.”

On Meyers: Mango blazer. “The oversize blazer is one of my favorite trends of the year and is perfect for cooler nights. It automatically elevates even a basic outfit. I love to style my patterned blazer with a simple slip dress and my solid-colored blazers with a pair of trousers or jeans for a more casual look.”

On Meyers: Neu Nomads dress. “I’ve been a fan of shirtdresses this year, from bold and bright to classic neutrals. If you are more into neutrals, this classic sustainable one by Neu Nomads is perfect—I like to wear it belted with tall boots and some bling. Shirtdresses can easily be styled up or down, depending on your accessories.”

On Meyers: Prada bag. “When choosing the perfect fall handbag to invest in, it’s best to keep the style classic. I like everything from black and neutrals to a bright pop of color. All my bags are fairly small but large enough to hold my daily essentials. A fall bag should be versatile enough to go with lots of outfits.”

On Meyers: Vintage jewelry; Chanel jewelry. “Chunky jewelry is still trending for fall. I love to add a new piece to my collection each season. Some of my favorite chunky pieces at the moment are gold oversize bracelets, hoops, and chain necklaces or pendants. These statement pieces take any outfit to the next level.”
