How does a Victoria’s Secret model master fall style? Lily Aldridge has teamed up with Gilt to bring you a curated sale to answer just that. “You know, this Gilt shop that I curated are the essentials pieces that I think never go out of style,” Lily told me this morning over coffee and her favorite BluePrint juices. “You can’t go wrong with leather pants, a classic pair of jeans, blazers, over-the-knee boots—I kind of picked these staples that I have in my wardrobe. And then you can just play around and make them your own.”
Now, I know that leather pants may not be everyone’s jam, so I picked Lily’s brain for fit tips and how to wear them. “Well I like the stretchy ones,” she told me while laughing. “They’re great if you have kids, funny enough, because if you spill stuff, you can just wipe it off. I wear them casually, with tennis shoes and T-shirts,” offered Lily in terms of outfit ideas. “You can wear them to work too, with a great pair of pumps, a blazer, and a blouse, and it looks very elegant. But you still have a little bit of an edge! They make an outfit look a little cooler.”
So what are some of Lily’s other fall wardrobe essentials? “I love very dainty gold jewelry,” she said. “And I like a big heavy bag. If you have a gorgeous bag, you can be running out of the door in jeans and a T-shirt and it elevates your outfit very effortlessly.”
And there you have it! A Victoria’s Secret model-approved way to take on fall style. Shop Lily’s picks on Gilt and let us know about how you’ve styled them!
