My fall 2022 moodboard has been in the works for months. After reviewing saved images of looks I love, I’ll zero in on specific pieces to freshen my wardrobe. Loafers and a pair of dark wash jeans are at the top of the list. A Mary Jane pump is there too. I already have a solid collection of classics in my closet, so I wanted to add a new item of clothing that would inject a sense of newness. This came in the form of a knit bustier. I’ll wear it under a jacket or over a shirt. It feels super modern yet relatable.
Valentino Garavani VLogo loafers
Read through for my picks…all from Mytheresa.
Loafers are the “it” shoe of the season. I’ve waffled between two opposite styles – a chunky lug sole and a sleek flat. The Valentino VLogo gets my vote for the lug sole option, followed closely by a horsebit style from Gucci. The embroidered bee detail on the heel is distinctive and fun.

On the sleeker side, The Row’s boyfriend style loafer is outstanding. A low profile with a tasseled, moccasin stitched toebox plus no hardware gives them a distinctive edge. They have a cool vibe without trying too hard. Those who appreciate The Row’s attention to detail and understated style will covet these loafers. (They run a half size large.)

Next on the list is a dark pair of jeans absent of any distressing. Khaite makes great denim and the Danielle style is a winner. It has the look of raw denim but with the comfort of stretch. I love the polished vibe too. I sized up and they still provide a fitted look.
Khaite always has a least a few items I want to add to my closet every season. In addition to the jeans mentioned, I’m stepping out of my no strapless rule and indulging in a knit bustier. I love the curved shape of the bustier under a jacket, which is how I plan on wearing it. The weight of the knit is substantial, so if I happen to remove the jacket, I don’t feel completely exposed and bare. I’lll also wear it over an untucked poplin shirt for a current styling bit.

Another shoe on my fall wishlist is a Mary Jane pump. High heels are not my go-to but with a chunky heel and strap to keep my foot secure, these Gucci pumps are actually comfortable for me. The style is charming with a square toe in patent leather. Great to add a lift to jeans and equally pretty with dresses.

As I created this post, I realized that so many of the pieces in my closet, the true keepers, are purchases from the last several years from Mytheresa. It illustrates how building a wardrobe with modern classics is easy when shopping consistently from a store that shares my style philosophy. I can count on Mytheresa to continually offer a selection of highly edited luxury items which is exactly how I want to curate my closet.
Thank you Mytheresa for supporting A Note on Style with this post.
Great round-up, Karima, especially on the loafers. Thank you! Is that your Co blouse from last Fall? Could you give a little compare and contrast of The Row blazer vs. the Acne studios blazer? Thanks again.
The blouse is from The Row from a few seasons back (purchased on Mytheresa). Regarding the blazers, they are completely different. The Row is a shrunken fit worn very close to the body with bracelet sleeve length. The Acne Studios blazer is double breasted, boxy and oversized. I could easily layer a sweater underneath.
Love all this. It looks great on you.
All beautiful options. Lovely photos, as well. Karima, what pants are you wearing in the photo with the Valentino loafers (on the chair)?
They’re from 7 For All Mankind.
Hi. I am loving the sweater that you are wearing on top of this green dress. Can you share with me what the sweater is
Thank you. It’s actually just an old black cardigan I tie at the waist. I do this often with sleeveless tops when I prefer extra coverage.
I love the mirrors in your dining room. Would you share the source?
Thank you! The mirrors are old purchased over 20 years ago.
Are the Chanel Mary Jane’s current or older?
The Chanel MJ is current.
Great post! Just ordered the Khaite jeans. Can’t tell you how many items I’ve purchased that you’ve recommended and I love.
Fantastic! I hope you love them!
It’s all wonderful! You look amazing in it! So good to see the Chanel MJs made the cut!
Amazing post and beautiful photos! I particularly love the one of you sitting on the dining table in the Staud dress, Row blazer and Gucci pumps….Perfection!
Your home is as classic as your fashion style. Where can I buy the white pendent on your kitchen ceiling? And your black iPhone holder (attached on the back of your phone)?
I just purchased four items from your post! Love your style, recommendations and especially your descriptions! So very helpful! Beautiful post and selection of items! Thank you!
Thank you! Hope you enjoy your purchases!
Did the Gucci low heeled squared toe loafer you featured in your last post not make the cut?
I’m still waiting for it to arrive.

Just unsure of size of Danielle Khaite jeans as the website says true to size? I am unable to return as live in South Africa so need to make the right choice? Would appreciate your help?
I’m usually a 27 or 28 in Khaite denim. The 28 felt better on my waistline at my current weight. For comparison with other brands, I usually wear a 27 in MOTHER denim (with stretch) and a 28 in SLVRLKE (with no stretch). I hope that helps.
The Acne double breasted blazer has a great fit. It’s become a staple in the collection and in my wardrobe. I have it in a another color & always feel pulled together wearing it. The oversized fit doesn’t not overwhelm my small frame.
I would get it in black but recently bought the black blazer from Serino in NYC. Check that collection.
Agree. I’ve had the Acne blazer for several years and it always pulls together an outfit.
I like the Valentino loafers but I’m not getting them because of the hardware. Is there a lug sole black loafers you like the is free of the designer branding?
Check today’s story on Instagram… I just posted a few great options.
Really great post! How does this blazer from The Row compare with their Schoolboy?
It is the same Schoolboy fit.
