The $4,000 Budget

My Fall Inspirations

My Fall Inspirations
Time Inc. Digital Studio

For me, this season is about luxurious fabrics-substantial knits and leather accents-but in slim silhouettes.

From top to bottom:
I find that the thing I'm attracted to for my home, I also want in my wardrobe. I'll be looking for clothing with the same rich colors as this John Roboshaw pillow.

Even though this Derek Lam outfit layers so many textures, it appears very neat because the lines are so clean.

Barcelona's Park Guell was designed by one of Spain's most influential architects, Antoin Gaudi. Everything is covered in mosaic tile. It looks like a fluid print.

A Year-Round Dress

I usually associate tribal patterns with summer. But since this dress is in black and white, it feels seasonless. Layer it with a blazer or sweater, and you can wear it all year.

Spearmint is my favorite shade for fall. Even though it's bright, it goes with almost everything.

I live in silk button-downs, like this one, and the next (see next slide), and Equipment makes the best ones. They're tailored but as comfortable as a men's pajama top.

Faded Denim

It's easier to mix colored items when they are slightly faded, like these muted clay jeans. A bright hue stands out more; this is almost like a neutral.

A Statement Necklace

I love oversize necklaces, but they usually make my neck sore by the end of the day. This fabric-backed version is surprisingly light.

I fell in love with the 1920s feel and the delicate diamanté trim of this dress.

I went crazy for Kelly Wearstler's jewelry. I'm always looking for slightly unusual pieces that stand out.
