When I think of the Chloé Drew Bag, I think of two people: Olivia Palermo and Chiara Ferragni. It’s not just because they’ve carried the bag (although they have), but because they seem to be the kind of people Chloé is trying to embody with it: women whose casual, put-together style has launched a sea of wannabe fashion bloggers.
The design is essentially a modernized saddle bag, which gives it a slightly boho undertone without the necessity of over-the-top details like fringe. No one will assume you stink of patchouli while wearing the Drew, and it provides a solid jumping-off point for plenty of fall outfits, as well as the beauty look we’ve created below.
Chloé Drew Bag
$1,650 via Net-a-Porter
The Chloé Drew Bag comes in a litany of colors and sizes, and most of them sell out very quickly after becoming available. Today, we’ll be using the Drew Bag in tan as our inspiration; not only is it a beautiful shade, but it’s one of the season’s trendiest looks, especially for saddle bags.
Clinique Just Browsing Styling Mousse
$16.50 via Macy’s
Natural, not-too-done brows are the look of choice for the casually elegant boho crowd. A mousse like this one will provide you with some color and hold without making your eyebrows look drawn-on or over-defined.
Essie Nail Polish in Bordeaux
$8.50 via Macy’s
The Chiaras and Olivias of the world don’t go too extreme with the makeup on their faces, but a rich, wine-colored nail is the perfect complement to a tan bag and dewy makeup look once the weather turns crisp.
Lancôme Renergie Moisturizer
$87 via Macy’s
Pulling off the whole “naturally beautiful” look is a lot easier if you have clear, well-moisturized skin, and this Lancôme moisturizer has been a favorite of women with enviable complexions for years. (And on a personal note, my mom has great skin and has used Lancôme skincare in one form or another for basically my entire life. I trust it implicitly.)
T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand
$230 via Sephora
There are a million YouTube tutorials on how to get the wavy-but-not-too-curled hair styles preferred by the impeccably highlighted, Instagram famous women of the world, and most of them have one thing in common: the use of a styling wand instead of a curling iron. This one comes with three barrel options, so you can experiment to your heart’s content.
Urban Decay Naked3 Eye Palette
$54 via Macy’s
These palettes are beloved by beauty aficionados the world over, and this version has a rosy tint to it that lends itself to the warm, fresh, not-too-made-up feel that Olivia Palermo has made her beauty calling card.
Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Liar
$22 via Macy’s
Citizens of the beauty internet spend a lot of time talking about MLBB lipstick, which stands for “my lips but better,” or a shade that matches the natural tint of one’s own mouth, but with a little extra oomf. This sheer shade is a strong contender for the title, depending on your pigmentation, and it fits the not-too-made-up aesthetic well even if it’s not an exact match.
