Channeling Meg Ryan’s Style This Fall

As the weather cools and we find ourselves swapping our linens and tees for denim and knits, we can’t help but think of the unofficial “it girl” of the autumn season: Meg Ryan. The OG cozy girl, who dished up fall looks in classic movies like When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and You’ve Got Mail, is serving as a major face of inspiration for fashionistas this season. So let’s break down how you can replicate these looks in your own autumn ensembles!

When Harry Met Sally

Ryan’s portrayal of Sally Albright is undoubtedly one of her most recognizable roles. Albright’s type-A attitude was masterfully portrayed through a wardrobe of structured basics, leaving her looking clean, classy, and put-together. Albright also leans on warm-colored knits that she expertly pairs with heavy denim and suede.

Annie Reed is a reporter, a dreamer, and a fashion icon. She works in the corporate world, so we rarely see her out of a pantsuit and trench coat – totally fall-appropriate! The key to replicating Annie’s look is a loose suit silhouette. Instead of emphasizing a fitted, sharp shape, opt for baggier, blended fabrics. As for shoes, keep them flat and comfortable for long walks in the park (or running to meet the love of your life).

You’ve Got Mail

Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox were the original cyber-romance. And because You’ve Got Mail always rises in popularity during the latter part of the year, no one will forget it anytime soon. Another thing we won’t forget? How Kathleen’s wardrobe exuded cozy bookshop owner. The movie came out in 1998, so when watching, you’ll recognize a ton of ’90s winter trends: fitted basics, monochromatic color schemes, and feminine fabrics. The looks Meg Ryan wears in this movie are nothing short of timeless.
