The key to a Meg Ryan fall? Timeless basics such as turtleneck sweaters, blazers and vintage denim.
Although we're still soaking up every last day of summer, we can't help but to start planning our wardrobes for chillier days ahead. The season of pumpkin spice lattes and turtleneck sweaters is closer than we think and when it comes to effortless '90s fall fashion, the first person that comes to mind is actress Meg Ryan.
Best known for her roles in When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless In Seattle and You've Got Mail, Meg Ryan is one of the most iconic rom-com stars of all time. While we think Meg Ryan never goes out of style, fashion's recent obsession with all things '90s has made the actress' outfits a major trend over the last year. TikTok has lauded the Meg Ryan's on- and off-screen style as the quintessential fall aesthetic.
