I Just Came Back From NYC—5 Items I’m Suddenly Inspired To Add To Cart

Whenever I make a trip back east, it really gets my creative juices flowing. Los Angeles certainly has its strong spots—amazing denim and smoothie shops by the dozen—but the fall season is where New York really shines. During my stay in New York I noticed plenty of the usual: all-black outfits, cool purses, and lots of Telfar, but a few other sartorial themes quickly emerged throughout my hour-long walks and coffee shop work sessions around the city. Making their way out of the woodwork were pieces like cheerful saturated knits, trench coats galore, and chunky loafers (after all, New Yorkers are all about a walkable shoe). Also to my surprise, the latest cardigan micro trend courtesy of Jacquemus was also in full effect on the streets.

As I made my way to Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and back, I made sure to take plenty of mental style notes along the way. I can definitively say that seeing all of these trends in the wild persuaded me to immediately add all of them to my shopping checklist. Keep scrolling below to see all of the items that left me inspired.

It's a hard fact that New Yorkers love the color black, but there are exceptions. Popping in and out of stores all over the Lower East Side I noticed strong hued sweaters of every color imaginable. When grey overcast skies become an inevitable everyday occurrence, it make sense to have a hit of endrophins in the form of a few bright knits.  

Before it's time to pull out the big guns (aka puffer coats), a layer to carry you through the October and November chill is highly essential. Through my observations that layer of choice seemed to be hardy trenchcoats. Thicker, and more substantial than the springtime favorite, these coats fall on the bulkier side on the trench spectrum—meaning it'll do an A1 job of keeping you warm. Since thick and wool coats are off the table for my LA lifestyle, this feels like one coat trend I can actually partake in.

Not only are cargo pants a hit among fashion It-girls worldwide, they also seemed to have found a devoted audience among the New York crowd too. Styled with a cool leather jacket and boots, it's like a match made in heaven.

It didn't take long before Jacquemus's beloved logo cardigan from FW21 made its way into the hearts of celebs and fashion insiders alike. Featuring one small button or fastener at the top, it's more cute than functional—and that's the charm of it. Always one to immediately jump on trends, New Yorkers grabbed a hold of these teensy cardigans before anyone could even blink. If you don't want to spend hundreds on the designer find, similar affordable versions have recently popped up.

It shouldn't come as a shock that a foot-friendly shoe trend appears on a list related to NYC style. Walking is a way of life for if you're a New Yorker, so it's only natural to embrace a shoe that's easy on the feet yet chic at the same time. Since it was still too warm to transition to boots, chunky loafers were out in full force during my trip. As a result I currently have five different styles in my Nordstrom cart right now.

Are Body Serums Your Dry-Skin Savior This Fall? A Derm Weighs In

Spoiler alert: Yes.

Are Body Serums Your Dry-Skin Savior This Fall? A Derm Weighs In

Recently, I noticed a trend in my inbox. More and more skincare brands were turning their attention below the neck, creating serums specifically made for the body. Like facial serums, they function as targeted treatments, and they tend to be more lightweight than body lotions. (The rules of skincare layering apply here, too: Apply serum first, followed by lotion or cream to seal everything in.)

“Body serums are typically made with different types of plant oils and absorb onto the skin quicker than a cream,” explains Ellen Marmur, board-certified dermatologist and founder of . “In addition, serums deliver a higher concentration of active ingredients which provide better results.” Of course, different products offer different results, but in general, the derm says you can expect body serums to offer hydration, tightening, brightening, and nourishing benefits.

And as someone who is often delinquent on body lotion already (oops), I wondered if this step was worth my while. But Marmur believes body serums can be worth it, especially during the drying fall and winter months. “In each season it is important to stay hydrated in order to preserve your skin,” she says. You heard the doctor: Body serums are a definitive yes. Keep scrolling for 15 worth trying, and get ready for impossibly silky, soft, and flake-free skin.

Necessaire’s gel-like formula boasts five(!) different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid for serious skin hydration. If you top off with their equally beloved lotion, you’ll be all but guaranteed the softest skin ever.

Packed with caffeine, pumpkin seed extract, and other firming ingredients, this serum from celeb facialist Tracie Martyn helps is like an anti-aging serum—only for your bod. 

Serums often have higher concentrations of ingredients, and that’s very much the case with this formula. Made up of 21% glycolic, lactic, and mandelic acids, it not only gently sloughs away dry skin and flakes, but it also helps with keratosis pilaris (aka the pesky bumps that can appear near hair follicles). 

This product has been around for years, and it’s known for keeping skin super-soft, hydrated, and even-toned. Oh, and a little goes a long way.

Somewhere between a hydrating serum and a treatment serum, this cult-favorite product is packed with ingredients that offer a little bit of everything: skin tightening, resurfacing, and of course, moisturizing. 

This firming and toning serum helps with everything from stretch marks to sun spots, and the chamomile adds a soothing touch.

If adding another product to your routine feels like a burden, consider this spray-on formula: Not only is it crazy-convenient to apply, but it also has the ingredients (hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, antioxidant-rich blue algae extract) to add the hydrating, protective layer you’re looking for.

This lotion-like serum hydrates with the best of them, thanks to ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and the brand’s signature CBD. But it also contains a blend of alpha and beta hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate, which leaves skin looking brighter and smoother with each application.

The gang’s all here (vitamin C for radiance, niacinamide for even tone, hyaluronic acid for hydration, and then some) in this lightweight, does-it-all formula.

If you spend any time on TikTok, you’ve likely seen people rubbing Truly products all over their bodies—including this serum. Containing both botanical ingredients as well as retinol, it helps firm the look of skin, and adds a pretty, flattering sheen that looks oh-so-pretty in sunlight.

Another formula that uses a blend of AHAs and BHAs, this body serum is actually made with 2% salicylic acid, making it a great choice if you experience body acne. 

Epidermal growth factor, aka EGF, is the key ingredient in all Bioeffect products, including this anti-aging body serum. Expect it to provide firmer, more plump, and all-around glowing skin with each use and over time. 

The base of argan and tsubaki oils feels nourishing on skin, while vitamin C and holy basil extract brighten and provide a dose of antioxidant protection. 

Think of this CBD-infused serum as a pumped-up body oil: It absorbs right away, feels silky and moisturizing, and can be mixed with any serum for extra moisturizing benefits.

As the name suggests, this serum has a milk-like consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin, while pineapple enzymes chemically exfoliate dead skin cells for an extra glow.

And now, 18 luxurious body products to treat youtself to this fall.
