Chloe's a Chicagoan who headed across the country for boarding school in New England before relocating to the West–and best? tbd!–Coast for university. ("Just trying to figure out where I belong," she explains.) Though she's all over the map, geographically, she's got her personal style–"a mix of old and new pieces, both edgy and feminine"–down pat. She's an advocate for fashion sustainability and is "extremely active on secondhand clothing platforms like Poshmark. I am also a consignment-store junkie." Here's what Chloe's into right now.
Gevir Ariel Sponge Headband
"Headbands are a huge trend right now, particularly this style, and this brand was definitely one of the first to come out with them. Gevir offers both quirky and classic colors, but my favorite part about the headband is the shape. It's taller and more oversized than most out there, making any look much more dramatic. The material is also super soft and cushy. I have this same style in a few colors so I can wear them more often!"
Le Labo Hinoki Body Lotion
"I've been wearing this Le Labo Hinoki scent for years. It's my OG scent; I now use their shampoo, conditioner, body wash…you get the point. There's something extremely refreshing about this scent, and after a long day at school, all I want to do is wash up and apply this lotion. The smell isn’t very strong, but it lingers. I use it every morning and night and always stock up before I run out so I don’t have to live without it. I check in a bag every time I travel just so I can bring the Hinoki with me."

Ganni Cutout Star Leather Cowboy Boots
"I've been wearing these boots almost every day. (Fwiw, they are super comfortable, unlike most of my shoes.) They're quite the showstopper, a twist on the typical cowboy boots featuring cutout stars and a glossy finish. They also come in other colors and are extremely versatile. I can wear them with a simple t-shirt and shorts or a fancy tweed dress. Ganni has a lot of beautiful pieces this season to pair with these boots. There's no question they'll continue to be a staple in my wardrobe this fall (and beyond)."

Swedish Stockings Sustainable Tights
"This hosiery brand is a big advocate for fashion sustainability. All of their products are made from fully-recycled products. They just did a collab with Ganni that I am loving (are you sensing a theme?), but they also have basic colors that everyone needs to have in their wardrobe! Start with their black tights or black socks–you can’t go wrong."
Sandro Black Tweed Pleated Dress
"I’m in Paris this fall, so I decided to get this black tweed number. I've been wearing it with hairclips and headbands, while also playing around with long black boots and heels. SO many places are selling tweed dresses, so definitely be on the lookout. I really like the pleats at the bottom of the dress that add a bit of flare. I know I’m going to be wearing this with a long coat and black tights when it gets colder here!"
