What’s Your Fall Style Archetype?
Stocking your closet with new boots, bags, and beautiful little nonessentials at the turn of a season is fun. More fun still? Stocking your closet according to your style archetype. Not only is it a gratifying way to shop, it also ensures your wardrobe will wind up feeling intentional and cohesive.
So, step one: Scroll. Step two: Home in on the vibe that best aligns with your most authentic self. Steps three and four: Lean in and curate a closet so considered, so uniquely you, that you won’t ever have to second-guess what to throw on.
Your Vibe: Minimalism—it’s a lifestyle.
The Palette: Monochromatic.
Style Mantra: “Does this come in black?”
Your theme is clean. Your philosophy on life, love, and fashion has always been “the less complicated, the better.” Clutter causes a special kind of cognitive dissonance, and as such, your home, like your wardrobe, is a chic study in sparseness. Intentionality and simplicity are hallmarks of your aesthetic, and you take to heart the Chuck Palahniuk quote “the things you own end up owning you.” Beauty, in your eyes, lies in geometric lines and anything streamlined. The best part about the shifting seasons? Leather weather, duh.

Your Vibe: English countryside with an appetite for romance.
The Palette: Victorian-era ruffles and anything checked.
Style Mantra: Get your frills.
You’re a creature of comfort. You spend weekends upstate foraging for chanterelles, reveling in the foliage, and basking in the garden’s bounty. For you, it’s all about the simple things in life: period pieces, Jane Austen novels, something decadent roasting in the oven. Frankly, the kitchen is your playground. You take your tea with turmeric honey and probably definitely believe baking sourdough from scratch is an innate personality trait. Celebrity crush? Hozier. Album on repeat? Taylor Swift’s Folklore. Favorite quarantine hobby? Knitting. Style-wise, you’re mad about plaid and have a deep-rooted love for cozy layers. Fall, in all its moody glory, is your season.

Your Vibe: Chill, meet coastal.
The Palette: Pale blues and sun-kissed hues.
Style Mantra: Be cool. Don’t be all, like, uncool.
Relaxed and carefree, you champion ease above all else. You thrive in the fall (it’s when all the tourists leave) and always see the world through rose-colored Illesteva glasses. You do everything in moderation…including moderation. Weekdays are reserved for Tracy Anderson and celery juice, while weekends center around rooftop views and picantes in Malibu. The only bars you’re familiar with are the ones branded Bala. You’ve got the whole GreenPan collection, but let’s be real—why cook when you can goop Kitchen? Your style is nothing if not laid-back, just like…you.

Your Vibe: Loud and proud.
The Palette: Bold blooms and autumnal hues.
Style Mantra: More is more.
You have a PhD in print-mixing. Casual is not in your repertoire. If tablescaping were a sport, you’d be an Olympic medalist. Your bible? Anything Ina Garten has so much as touched. Your seasonal manifesto? “It’s Decorative Gourd Season, Motherf*ckers.” In the closet, you’re more of the go-bold-or-go-home type, gravitating toward soft, feminine silhouettes that strike a happy balance between demure and high-drama. You are the maximalist—and as such, you live your life to the absolute fullest.
