Puff-Sleeve Blouse

When I think of something I would wear on my first-ever trip to Paris, this is the exact blouse that I have in mind. I love this unexpected take on a classic white blouse and would love to see it styled underneath an oversized black blazer.

Balloon-Sleeve Cardigan

As far as I'm concerned, a cardigan is a girl's best friend and this balloon-sleeve sweater fits the bill. The slouchy-but-not-sloppy fit will help you achieve the effortless vibe you're looking for while keeping you warm as the temps begin to drop.

Polka Dot Blouse

Polka dots are an ever-enduring print and one that has earned the title of a timeless classic. The flowy silhouette of this polka dot blouse would pair just as well with a black pencil skirt as it would a pair of jeans and it'll be one you'll turn to time and time again.

Sézane

Twisted Knit Cardigan

If adding cardigans to my online shopping cart was a sport, I'd be an Olympian. There's something about a chunky knit sweater that makes me absolutely lose my marbles and this pink-but-not-too-pink variation is one that'll be the perfect transition piece when the snow melts but it's not yet warm enough to wear blouse on its own.

Sézane

Patchwork Blouse

French style is all in the details and this blouse proves it. With a whimsical silhouette and a patchwork print that makes me absolutely swoon, this elegant piece makes a statement that'll stop any fashionista in their tracks.

Sézane

Wool Bodysuit

Update your bodysuit game with this merino wool option from Sézane. With a sweetheart neckline and a tailored fit that says "I totally have my life together," this fresh take on a basic piece will be a statement in itself. Couple with a midi skirt, loafers, and your favorite shoulder bag for a feminine look that'll be wonderfully timeless.

Knit Cardigan

Layering is a crucial way to keep fall fashion functional and for those days when it's still too hot to don your favorite blazer but mornings are chilly enough that a blouse just won't cut it, this delicate, knit cardigan will have your back. Pair it with ivory trousers for a monochromatic look or with your favorite denim and booties for the easiest outfit formula of all time.

Open-Back Bodysuit

I saw this open-back bodysuit and audibly gasped. When model and style icon Ines de la Fressange said the key Parisian style secret is to "always keep them surprised," this is what she was talking about. "Business in the front, party in the back" is my idea of a good time and this fun take on an otherwise simple staple checks all of my boxes.

Sézane

Wool Cardigan

When Taylor Swift sang the iconic ballad that is Cardigan, this is the exact one that I imagine she was talking about. With a slouchy, cozy fit that still looks neat and clean, this wool cardigan will keep you warm while helping you achieve the effortlessly-chic vibe that a Parisian woman exudes.

Smocked-Waist Midi Dress

My easiest hack for putting outfits together is a simple one: build your fit around a dress. And with a base as beautiful as this one, you simply can't go wrong. Dress it down with a pair of sneaks and a leather jacket or dress it up with a blazer and heels. The result will always be one that will make heads turn.

Sézane

Wool Blazer

It's my steadfast belief that you need two types of coats in a fall wardrobe: a trench that matches with everything and a statement blazer that brings some life to your neutrals. This wool blazer comes in both navy and rosewood but I am leaning into this rosey hue to add some color without going overboard.

Wool Coat

For those fall days that feel like winter, this wool coat is an absolute essential. From a goes-with-everything black to a pattern that'll stop others in their tracks, this one comes in four colors to fit whatever vibe you're trying to achieve this season.

Long-Sleeve Pantsuit

There is no look quite as powerful as a pantsuit and this long-sleeve version from Sézane is no exception. For office days to brunch and beyond, this little number will help to take the guesswork out of piecing together an outfit and will make getting ready an absolute breeze.

Sézane

High-Waist Trousers

Whether you work in an office or are looking to add some structure to your next date-night fit, these high-waist trousers are your next "I need this or I will perish" piece. With a color that will make a statement and a fit that'll compliment your shape, these are 100 percent worth it.

Printed Skirt

The French know how to mix and match and wearing a striped sweater with a printed skirt like this one is the keep-them-on-their-toes combo none of us saw coming. Whether you want to venture out as styled here or stick to a solid blouse, this skirt will serve as a standout piece you turned to again and again.

Sézane

Leather Clogs

Clogs are one of our favorite fall fashion trends and this year, we're diving in head first. These leather clogs are high-quality to last you for seasons to come and will be the perfect accessory to help you add that unexpected, fresh finish to your basics and classics.

Sézane

Leather Boots

Fall is most definitely boot season and these leather boots are calling your name (and mine, too). With a heel height that's tolerable yet elevated and a booth length that'll hit just below the knee, it'll pair well with jeans, skirts, and dresses galore.

Sézane

Leather Ballet Flats

Ballet flats are the one trend we didn't see coming this year but with a solid design like this slingback pair, we're sold. With quality leather that'll last you from season to season, you'll be able to hop on the trend and look damn good doing it.
