Fall clothing trends she loves: J Brand bell-bottom jeans, plunging necklines, women’s tuxedos, fingerless gloves.

She considers herself: “An accessories girl. I love earrings from designers like Alexis Bittar and Coralia Leets. I’m also a fan of vintage jewelry—like the collection we sell from A. Brandt + Son in Narberth.”

Fashion icon: Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

Go-to dressy outfit for fall: “J Brand black Bianca jeans, paired with a Repeat black fitted turtleneck and a colorful Autumn Cashmere wrap, along with a great pair of black suede wedge boots.”

Her splurge: “Obviously, cashmere. It’s soft, comfortable, and it can be dressed up or down.”
