Pure Picks: Gayle Perry

The NYC-based personal stylist, closet editor and makeover specialist reveals her statement pieces and seasonal finds.
“Fall is my favorite fashion season,” says Gayle Perry. “I have this back-to-school spirit that I apply to my closet. I devote the time to taking a close look at what’s there, editing out what should finally go, and mixing old and new pieces, shopping in and out of my closet.”
“I often accent my outfits with gold jewelry, and I love a big chandelier earring that gets noticed, yet is not overpowering. I will dress this up for evenings out, but also down with jeans during the day.” Valeria lacquered gold-tone earrings, $715, Chloé, available at Net-a-Porter, net-a-porter.com
“Textured blouses add dimension to your wardrobe. I’d pair this one with a beautiful cream wide-legged pant and instantly feel prettier, stronger and more confident.” Paola top in rose gold, $425, Ulla Johnson, ullajohnson.com
“I love throwing on a statement coat and feeling strong and powerful. This oversize black-and-white herringbone is a great mix of on-trend and classic.” Double-breasted long coat in herringbone wool, $3,990, Saint Laurent, ysl.com
“My signature style is high/low. I mix my designer pieces that I’ve invested in over the years with new seasonal items from stores like Zara and H&M. I can’t wait to style these baggy pants with booties and a chunky sweater, heels, a T-shirt and blazer—or an off-the-shoulder sweater or bodysuit. The styling options are endless.” Faux leather pants, $39.90, Zara, zara.com
“I’m captivated by the puff sleeves, texture and color of this top—green is huge this fall.” Darly top, $690, Silvia Tcherassi, silviatcherassi.com
“This pink pouch is so fun and chic, and adds the perfect pop of color.” The Pouch in Maxi Intreccio in amaranto, $2,950, Bottega Veneta, bottegaveneta.com
