5 Things Every Stylish Woman Will Wear Soon

Aemilia Madden

If you've ever wondered about what it's like to dissect fashion week from a buyer's perspective, you're in luck. We tapped an expert, Claire Distenfeld, the owner and creative director of Fivestory, to share what caught her eye at Paris Fashion Week. As the woman behind the boutique every NYC girl loves to frequent, Claire has invaluable insight into how she decides what makes the cut.

Her biggest advice, "you always have to take into consideration that runway shows are not reality." Claire notes that when she's visiting showrooms, she runs down a list of crucial questions, where a customer would wear an item, it's purpose, value, and of course if it's comfortable. "My taste and my shopping habits are really similar to my client, so if I walk into a showroom and say 'I want to wear the $%# out of that,' my client usually feels a version of that same sentiment."

Below, Claire highlighted five of her favourite takeaways after the fray, explaining why each will be a major must for autumn. Read on for her take on the trends, and to shop the styles now (before everyone else does)!
