Same Same But Different: Meg Ryan Fall

Welcome to Same Same, But Different. As Gen Z and millennial fashion editors, respectively, we all know a thing or two about shopping—for all ages, and particularly our demographics. As we discover the most effective products for you, we will’t help but do a bit of purchasing for ourselves and construct our personal (age-appropriate) wish lists. And now, we’re sharing them with you. Ahead, take a look at what’s in our hearts and in our carts recently.

Dale: Now that Hot Girl Summer (2022) is firmly previously, it’s time for an entire latest vibe. Although I even have to be honest: As much as I like a very good Pumpkin Spiced Latte moment, I’m not likely into Christian Girl Fall. Nonetheless, I do resonate with Meg Ryan Fall, especially given how big ’90s-inspired trends are immediately. So I encourage to ask: As a fellow Meg, what does Meg Ryan Fall mean to you?

Meg: Thanks, Dale, for asking this poignant query. Personally, every fall is Meg Ryan Fall. The best way I see it, she’s less of a personality to repeat and more so the autumnal spirit personified. I may not create any of her exact looks piece by piece, but I’ll channel her fall-filled spirit with quite a lot of neutral tones and plaid touches, as any good fall girl would do. What about you? What’s your fall vibe?

Dale: Ugh, so true. Hot Girl Summer, Meg Ryan Fall, Coastal Grandmothers, each of those are in regards to the essence slightly than the actual ‘matches. In my heart of hearts, my fall vibe is all about knitwear. I often refill on cozy knits like I’m prepping for hibernation and construct a wardrobe around those. All in all, though—my fall ensembles are inclined to be comfort-first. That appears like wide-leg jeans, easy sneakers, and ultra-soft sweaters. That said, this 12 months I believe I’ll be incorporating some more menswear-inspired pieces into the combination…simply to shake things up.

But tell me now and tell me true, neutral tones, plaid touches, and all, what are you eyeing this season?

Meg: ​​I’m right there with you with regards to menswear-inspired items. Suit sets are very chic immediately and definitely something I’m incorporating into my wardrobe.

While I don’t consider our fair leading lady wore overalls in any of her iconic flicks, these are the item I’m most jazzed about this season. And if I do say so, I believe she’d appreciate the ’90s aesthetic they provide. I probably own more overalls than the common person, but I’m also very critical about my dungarees. They were perfectly worn-in and versatile as soon as I got them. No stiff denim here. I’ll be pairing mine with mock neck shells and slinky tops, just like the Meg top from M.M. LaFleur. (All Megs, rise!)

Dale: The great thing with sweaters is that they’re pretty versatile! I believe of knitwear as a more polished version of sweats. I’m keen on turtlenecks (which I believe Ms. Ryan would easily approve of) because they give the impression of being great underneath jackets, like Overland’s ’70s-inspired Celestine Jacket—I do know we’re discussing Meg Ryan, but dare I say it’s giving Penny Lane in Almost Famous? Normally though, after I’m living my best autumnal life, I’ll sport it with a cute midi skirt, cozy tube socks, and my tried-and-true Birkenstocks (can’t stop, won’t stop). To top it off, I’ll add an oversized scarf. The one I’m wearing this season isn’t floral, however it really jogs my memory of the one Meg Ryan wears at the tip of Sleepless in Seattle.

Meg: Yes to Penny Lane. Yes to Birks. Yes to scarves. I admit I’m still eyeing that Pimples one regardless that its fad has probably passed…

Anyway, inquiring minds need to know—what’s your favorite Meg Ryan movie? Mine is certainly You’ve Got Mail. I could go on a tangent about how that and Sleepless in Seattle are the identical movie, but I digress. (Those two make me consider the dueling Spiderman meme, LOL).

Dale: I’m a sap for the “will they, won’t they” arc, which makes me a When Harry Met Sally gal for all times! That said, the scene from SIS of Meg Ryan peeling an apple in a single strip lives rent-free in my head. Regardless I’ll be cozying up for a Meg Ryan flick soon. Until next time!
