Fall is finally here, which means it is time to put away the sundresses and shorts and bundle up for the crisp autumn air. Adhara Mereles, concierge at The New York Palace, shares her top picks for the perfect places to find autumn apparel. Mereles says you’re sure to spot several fashionable finds at Barneys New York. The famed department store is a great place to find autumn apparel “because of the store’s vast array of options,” Mereles says. “Whether you prefer a particular designer or spontaneously discover a new one, you can always find the latest collections here.” Mereles notes that the store also offers concierge services to provide an extra personal touch for their customers. For a fashion-savvy establishment with both popular and stylish couture, Club Monaco is a perfect option. “Fashion trends can be found ranging from the warmth of Italian cashmere for men to ‘office chic’ wool for women,” Mereles says. “I bought my mother a scarf there that she’s had for years and goes beautifully with various outfits.” For great fashion on a budget, head to Century 21, which boasts locations in New York City and New Jersey. While there, you can find luxury clothing, shoes and coats at incredible marked-down prices. “People visiting New York City always seem to enjoy Century 21—not to mention locals who also find it easy to lose track of time inside the store,” Mereles says. For family fashion, J. Crew is a good option. The collections include fall wear specifically geared for babies, boys, girls, women and men. “Their clothing is wonderfully flexible, outfits can be dressed down for a casual outing or dressed up for an elegant event!”
