Whether you love (or loathe) it, fall is just around the corner. So, mark your calendars for Sept. 23, because that's the official Autumn equinox, aka the end of the summer and the beginning of PSL, crunchy leaves, and sweater season. That means that it's probably best to start tackling that tricky — and oftentimes frustrating — wardrobe switch, packing away your summertime staples and swapping them out for fall-friendly essentials. First up on the list of must-haves? A pair of crisp white boots, just like the ones Hailey Baldwin slipped into prior to strutting around L.A. looking like a total boss.
Business-cool, with a dash of of-the-moment edge, has been Baldwin's sartorial M.O. in recent weeks. She's made a sometimes-stuffy office staple — i.e., a two-piece suit — look incredibly fresh, and that's because she opted for an oversized silhouette and paired it with sneakers. But it's the most recent ensemble she wore that exudes working woman vibes in the absolute best way — and it introduces not one, not two, but three autumn essentials you should 100 percent scoop up for the fall season.
On Sept. 17, Baldwin was photographed running around Beverly Hills, with a shopping bag and the cutest phone case in one hand and keys in the other. It's likely the model was getting back into the swing of things after spending a few days in the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week —and by the looks of it, she's means serious business.
The 22-year-old tastemaker rocked the color combo you simply can do no wrong with: black and white. Up top, she sported a white Mm6 Maison Margiela logo tee and a leather blazer from the J.Brand x Elsa Hosk collaboration. The black, buttery topper draws inspiration from a vintage jacket Hosk wears on repeat and is a fresh update on that classic wool and cotton blazer you might reach for on the regular.
On the bottom, a pair of tall, white Jacquemus boots with a distinctive fold-over silhouette a) punctuated the look b) added to the vintage feel of the getup (they're quite reminiscent of the '60s go-go boots) and c) took the T-shirt-dress-and-blazer combo to entirely new level of stylish.
No Baldwin outfit is complete without an assortment of accessories. As per usual, the model sported her favorite Jennifer Fisher hoops and go-to Celine sunglasses, rounding out the look with a black Alexander Wang x Bvlgari bag and a gold Rolex watch.
