It may be warm here in New York today, but the Fall collections are already hitting stores and cooler weather is just around the corner. Our Fall Shopping Guide should help you ready your wardrobe for the autumn months, but for some further inspiration, have a look at our editors’ Fall picks, below.

A good fashion week dress from Damir Doma and a good fashion week shoe from Saint Laurent, not necessarily to be worn together. And because I’m not quite ready to admit that the shows are five weeks away, a pair of rehabbed vintage Levi’s from the new denim brand Re/Dun to wear all August long.

I have poor blood circulation and am thus constantly freezing. I can’t wear my vintage 1920s monkey-fur coat all the time (though I’d love to), so I’m planning to rely on this cropped goat-hair jacket from Maison Martin Margiela for some deeply chic everyday insolation.

Should another Polar Vortex descend upon New York, I’ll be prepared with this oil-print anorak from Sandro. The sleek silhouette makes it easy to slip in and out of backstage, but the down filling provides plenty of warmth while I’m trekking from show to show.

The bitter Polar Vortex we New Yorkers endured this past winter shook me to the core (I’m still in a state of disbelief walking around in bare legs this summer) and already has me preparing for the cold months ahead. If there’s one trend I’m eager to get my hands on next season, it’s a statement-making shearling. I’m currently pining over Adam Lippes‘ oh-so-cuddly navy belted topper. It’s the stylish equivalent of a bear hug and will be sure to earn me compliments while keeping out the chill.

It’s time to upgrade the ponchos that are currently in my closet. In chenille, this Missoni knit basically doubles as a wearable blanket. Plus, it’s super-easy to throw on over just about anything.

Louis Wong consistently makes impeccable leather jackets under his line for A.P.C., but this season’s Ferris jacket is the first one that I must own. Colored suede was among my favorite trends from the Spring ’15 men’s shows, but I’m impatient, so waiting until next season is out of the question.

When fashion week hits, my current shoulder bag may not cut it. This stunning tote from Zana Bayne is big enough for a notebook, tape recorder, flats, and maybe even a pilfered Perrier (or two).

I’m a bit mad for cozy pastels, so this boxy Gucci peacoat is the perfect transitional piece for the cooler months—plus, it livens up my go-to uniform of skinny jeans and a white T-shirt.

I love Shrimps’ irreverent approach to faux fur—there’s nothing stuffy or upper crust about it. This camel, blush, and orange coat features all of my favorite fall colors, plus it won’t break the bank like the real thing would. I’d much rather wear a faux color-blocked version than blend into the pack of women in the same chocolate-brown mink.

Despite my Wisconsin roots, I’m a wimp when it comes to the cold. Sweaters are a key part of my daily uniform during the fall and winter months, and The Row‘s cozy cashmere version would be the perfect addition to my rotation.

WHAT: “Fall ’14′s inspiration began with a short-lived obsession with the Grateful Dead, a band I followed around a bit in high school and college.” —Adam Lippes. The designer sent us a Fall ’14 inspiration image, above.

After wrapping up his Resort presentations in June, Adam Lippes headed out West to unwind, enjoy some wine, and explore Yosemite National Park. Here, the designer shares the details of his “all-American adventure,” exclusively with Style.com.
My post-Resort trip was an amazing, family-focused, all-American adventure. The real goal of the trip was picking up my nephews, Isaac and Asher, from their first overnight camp experience near Yosemite National Park. Since we were already in the area, my family decided to meet for a few days in Napa.
We kicked off the trip by racing Audi R8s at the Sonoma Raceway (above). I didn’t think it was possible to drive that fast, and I have gotten two speeding tickets since. The next day was devoted to wine. We got an early start at one of my favorite California vineyards, Shafer Vineyards.
We headed to Yosemite National Park the following afternoon and stayed at the Ahwahnee Hotel, a majestic timber building from 1927, owned by friends of ours from my hometown of Buffalo, New York. The experience was perfection. Hikes, horseback riding, and standing in awe were all part of the next day’s activities.
After picking up my nephews from camp, we headed to my brother’s serene ranch in eastern Washington State. Set on the Yakima River, it has fields as far as the eye can see and an endless sky. We visited my sister-in-law’s chickens, turkeys, donkeys, and horses before heading back to NYC the next morning. So, as I said, an all-American adventure.
The beautiful view at Shafer Vineyards. Its wine is incredible and the story of the vineyard—a man who decided at fifty to leave his marketing job in Chicago, pack his family in a station wagon, and move to the then undeveloped Napa Valley to explore a new way of life—is inspiring. Maybe my third act!

At this time last year, designers were busy making knee-length Bermudas and basketball shorts. This Resort season, they took things one step further, lowering hemlines on baggy, culotte-inspired trousers so they hit somewhere between mid-calf and just above the ankle. We noticed crisp white styles in the new lineups from Thakoon Addition, Ports 1961, Adam Lippes, and Sonia Rykiel (the latter two whipped them up in pliant leather and pleather, respectively). And while labels like Valentino and Roksanda Ilincic, among others, showed the fresh silhouette in a casual context, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci made them evening-appropriate in black satin paired with a pair of killer ankle-strap sandals. Unless you’ve got stems like Joan Smalls’, we’d recommend rocking heels while test-driving this trend.
