Here, more fashion intel from the stylist extraordinaire behind The Zoe Report. And don’t forget to check out her new fall collection in store and at Saks.com.
SaksPOV: What are five things every woman needs this fall?
Rachel Zoe: Leather pants — opt for a fitted legging or edgy flare. Tuxedo-inspired blazer — it’s perfect to wear to work or, dressed up over a flirty dress, for a night out. Something velvet — try my cropped Ian pant with a white tee and leather jacket. A cape — it’s a great staple for any wardrobe because you can throw it on over your wide-leg jeans or a minidress with tights. And a slouchy knit is a must — try an oversized cardigan or even an asymmetrical pullover.
SaksPOV: Which shoe will work best with the most outfits?
R.Z.: I love booties! They are a great option for pants and dresses. Go for a light neutral color and an extra high heel to elongate your legs.
SaksPOV: How do you shop vintage and make it look contemporary?
R.Z.: Mix high-end with contemporary and a little bit of vintage, with modern touches.
SaksPOV: What was your first designer purchase?
R.Z.: When I was on vacation with my family in Europe, I bought a Louis Vuitton bucket bag.
SaksPOV: How can someone pull off the quintessential Rachel Zoe look?
R.Z.: I’m not sure I have one quintessential look because my style really depends on my mood, occasion and the season. You will often catch me running around town in wide-leg denim, an LNA tee, one of my vintage Chanel blazers and round sunnies. Other times, I might opt for a maxi dress and some platform wedges — effortless glam.
