What I Want: Classics for fall

Watching spring 2011’s streamlined styles go down the runway at New York Fashion Week last month inspired my fall fashion desires to lean toward classic.

Needless to say, I didn’t have any trouble finding buttery leathers, rich neutrals and always-in-style prints to fill my closet — and keep it stocked for seasons to come.

Animal prints
So much more fun than basic black — but  meant to be used as a neutral, too.
wren jacket, $795; at Bird, 203 Grand St., Williamsburg, 718-388-1655

Slouchy silk pants
As comfortable as pajama pants but as sophisticated as more structured trousers.
Loeffler Randall pants, $295

Camel leather skirt
One of the most gorgeous colors for fall looks even richer on soft, supple leather.
J. Crew skirt, $325; at J. Crew, 91 Fifth Ave., 212-255-4848

Combat boots
You can’t beat perfectly worn-in combat boots for running around the city.
Bernardo boots, $154; at Dear Fieldbinder, 198 Smith St., Carroll Gardens, 718-852-3620

Little black daytime dress
The perfect addition to my collection of long-sleeved dresses — it’s fitted (but not too body-hugging) and can be worn with practically anything in my closet.
T by Alexander Wang dress, $108
