We're Style Experts and These Are Our 10 Fall Essentials

You may recognize Janet Gunn and Melissa Meyers as the duo who frequents Who What Wear to lend their style expertise. You might also be familiar with Susan Feldman as a regular voice on the site. While they each typically focus on sharing their own distinct perspectives, the Los Angeles–based trio has teamed up today for what we can only describe as one epic collaboration. The topic of conversation? The fall clothing essentials that are already getting the most airtime in their closets this season.

 All three women are excited to embrace elevated dressing again and have their eyes on several key wardrobe staples to complete all their cool-weather ensembles. The ten themes below touch on the season's freshest silhouettes, but true to form, each has styled them in a timeless, elevated way. Now that we're nearly at the halfway point of the fall, these are the key styles that are resonating the most for Gunn, Meyers, and Feldman.

To find out the fall clothing items in question and to see how each woman styles their favorites, just keep scrolling.

On Melissa Meyers: Free People Sweater; Current Air Faux Leather Pants ($88); AERO New York Boots. "I don’t think you can have too many pairs of black boots. Black boots go with pretty much everything. You can definitely dress them up or dress them down. Go with what works for you and is comfortable. Definitely worth investing in a good pair."

On Gunn: Mango Faux Leather Skirt. "Faux leather gives you the look of real leather without the weight and the price and a touch of edge for day or night." "I’m loving faux leather these days, and wearing neutrals like this caramel shade as my go-to for the season."

On Gunn: Isabel Marant Shacket. "Shackets are thicker than a shirt but thinner than coats. This makes the shacket a hero piece for layering, they look smart worn over a simple white tank or your favorite T-shirt."

"A good pair of jeans will take you everywhere. I have made sure to add some great dark denim to my jeans this season. For a real update go for a bootcut."

On Janet Gunn: Veronica Beard Cropped Blazer. "You can never go wrong with a classic houndstooth jacket classic houndstooth."

On Meyers: Free People Sweater. "There is nothing like a good cozy, chunky sweater worn with a more fitted bottom. I like to wear white or ivory all year long. Style with warmer shades for the Fall/Winter season."

On Meyers: Boyish Jeans; Current Air Sweater. "This seems to be the denim style I’m wearing on repeat these days because they are comfy, chic, and modern."

"An oversized coat looks super fresh, at the same time reminds me of my Y2K fashion days. This houndstooth one is my new favorite."

"A cashmere sweater is something you can definitely wear year-round but in the fall it is like a great basic tee shirt. Invest in classic colors. They will never go out of style."

On Gunn: Mango Trench Coat. "You'll never have to worry about it's going out of style."

I Just Turned 30 and Cleaned Out My Closet—Here Are the 4 Trends I Got Rid Of

And what I replaced them with.

I Just Turned 30 and Cleaned Out My Closet—Here Are the 4 Trends I Got Rid Of

I try not to subscribe to the idea that you should accomplish x,y, and z before you turn 30—there's just too much pressure in that. However, when it comes to my closet, I felt like my milestone birthday was a good chance to reevaluate what I spend money on and what doesn't "bring me joy," to quote Marie Kondo. Plus, the pandemic has shifted my fashion priorities in a more casual direction, so I decided to organize my wardrobe accordingly.

I realized one thing lately: What I choose to wear to run simple errands is what I should be investing in moving forward. It's not strappy heeled sandals, corporate-feeling blazers, or impractical clutches. Instead, it's slide-on-and-go mules, loose-fitting pieces, functional crossbody bags, and other similarly easy-to-wear items. Scroll down to shop the four main trends I got rid of after turning 30. 

As much as I love a good blazer, I can't stand the extra-stiff, structured ones that are simply not comfortable to move around in. As I get older, I want to make a conscious effort to not buy pieces solely for their looks and instead choose items for practical reasons like comfort and wearability. 

I love matching sets because they're a no-effort way to look put-together quickly. They're also super versatile because you can mix and match with other items from your closet and create a bunch of different outfits. 

The pandemic has definitely made me realize how silly some of my jewelry is and how infrequently I wear it. Going forward, I'm excited to choose quality over quantity and save up for extra-special jewelry pieces that feel personal. For instance, the necklace below is made from individual pearls I received every holiday and birthday over the span of 20 years from my grandma and great-aunt. Costume jewelry could never. 

Lately, my flat mules have been getting a ton of wear, so I've made the conscious decision to quit spending money on shoe trends I can't wear every day. That, however, doesn't mean they have to be boring—just look at the jewel-embellished Manolo Blahnik flats below for proof. 

I think cropped flare jeans are outdated at this point and look a bit like you're wearing jeans that you outgrew. Instead, I am investing in full-length jeans, which feel much more grown-up and polished. Plus, I am 5'10", so basically, any cropped jeans look extra short on me. Yet I still wear them. Instead, I want to solve the problem and go for styles with long inseams.
