Interview Mag’s Julia Gall Wears Menswear, Makes it Look Easy

  • Day 1: My Monday outfit always ends up being kind of transitional from the weekend, so here we are in a pair of Topshop jeans and my newly reissued Juicy Couture track jacket. The Jersey girl in me insists that these have never gone away, but I'm glad Vetements made it socially appropriate to wear again. Because I'm not going to the mall, I topped it with a Dries Van Noten blazer and Chanel velvet boots.

  • Day 2: Fall is the last chance to let my legs see the light of day until about April, and I decided to try shorts this season instead of my usual miniskirts. I'm especially loving this funny paper bag shape from Phillip Lim with a mohair sweater tucked in.

  • Day 3: I have a run-through for a shoot today at the office. That means dressing up a bit to feel more in control of the chaos, but also being comfortable enough for a long day ahead. This sweater is from this amazing children's line my friend Amanda works for called Mischa & Puff. Their "popcorn sweater" for kids was so popular they made it for adults in a limited run; this is like number 5/100.

  • Day 4: I love the ease yet instant bossiness of this Tibi suit. Tibi is a brand that all girls, no matter their personal style, love. Girls love Tibi. Period, the end.

  • Day 5: I'm back again in a blazer and jeans, this time in dressier velvet. I love mixing pastels with a tweed to keep it from getting too Annie Hall. This taffeta top was an amazing find on The Real Real, where I tend to get lesser-seen or "the one that got away" items from designers I love, such as J.W. Anderson.

  • Day 6: I usually spend my Saturdays bumming around the house, so dinner or a birthday party is what gets me up and out. I try to keep my going-out look pretty simple and comfortable. This cashmere baby tee and super-high-waist stretch jeans with kitten heels feels like a good base. The velvet trench makes it a look.

  • Day 7: I also usually wear the same thing during the day on both Saturday and Sunday. My casual version of a suit is a no-brainer. I added a graphic scarf by Stems, which is a line by my boyfriend's mother, Diana Stockton, featuring her watercolors of flowers from the Napa Valley area. I usually prefer a boot over a sneaker in terms of comfortable footwear.

Julia Gall is the Senior Fashion & Accessories Editor at Interview Magazine, and she says she’s on a “getting dressed kick.” It’s the exact kind of expression that makes no sense but also total sense, and it feels especially apropos when you click through a week of her outfits above. You’ll find menswear-inspired blazers, perfectly tailored cigarette pants, houndstooth shorts, a velvet duster, fitted knit sweaters and silk scarves — all the necessary ingredients to appear v. “put together.”

But that’s not to say she’s buttoned up. In fact, her ability to make these items look casual and easy is exactly what makes her style feel so cool. Ex: Under one blazer is a Juicy Couture track jacket. Those houndstooth shorts have a paper-bag waist. A silk scarf is the icing on top of a Canadian tuxedo. She’s just…cool. Click through above to corroborate. Please and thank you.

  • That suit is outfit goals, I’m trying to get more mensweary in my wardrobe but still attempting to keep it relatively feminine
