I’ve been lucky enough to live in some of the most incredible cities in the world, at least in my personal opinion—NYC, Paris, and L.A. Each city is a unique place to live with its own local cultures and customs, and similarly, each place has its own take on fashion. Living in each place has opened me up to what makes each spot known for fashion in its own right, and I picked up some ideas about how to dress along the way—with plenty of personal outfits to share.
In L.A., I discovered how to style casual pieces like jeans and athleisure looks that are core to every Angeleno’s wardrobe. NYC is where I learned about practicality. Before living there, I never had to dress for a cold winter, so I found out firsthand how New Yorkers manage to look chic while also shielding themselves from the elements—and how to maximize small closet space. In Paris, I really mastered how to build out a closet of great basics and investment items that I’ll wear again and again, a method of getting dressed that felt very common among the most stylish Parisian women I met.
Ahead, I’m diving into my editor wardrobe that was crafted after picking up style lessons in these fashion capitals, including the key pieces I always wear and the ones I learned to skip.
