This Beauty Editor's Fall Style Is All About Comfort and Versatility

Shoe choice is key.

This fall will likely feel pretty different than last year. For starters, you might be wrapped up in your favorite scarf on your couch, instead of throwing it on for your commute. But some of your go-to items for this season needn't change just because you’re spending more time at home.

Take it from beauty expert and editor, Maya Allen—her fall essentials encompass the most important parts of her personal style: versatile pieces that make her feel confident and comfortable.

Whether she's working or just hanging out at home, a pair of comfy flats with arch support is a must for the beauty expert. Allen's pick? The Evie Loafer by Vionic—the classic black leather shoe with a pop of gold can easily be dressed up or down.

Allen pairs them with a chic blazer and jeans for a casual, but polished look during the work day, and then swaps out the outfit for a cozy sweater dress. How happy are we that chic loungewear is having a serious moment, by the way?

When it's time to leave her apartment (mask-on, always), Allen likes to break out a pair of statement sneakers with leather pants and a cardigan. The Vionic Adela Sneaker in Black Metallic is a classier take on the chunky sneaker trend, but with heal to toe comfort technology. These sneakers are super versatile so Allen also wears hers with bold prints, like a leopard print maxi dress.
