You’ve Got Mail Style: A Kat...

collage of you've got mail style inspiration

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers…and bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils. Especially now, as our weather has finally cooled down! I’m feeling cozy and in the mood for my annual autumnal viewing of You’ve Got Mail. Which got me to thinking about Meg Ryan’s character Kathleen Kelly’s style.


Kathleen Kelly’s Style

Kathleen Kelly’s timeless, classic, feminine style just so happens to coincide with a few fall fashion favorites I’m loving and fall 2021 trends such as sweater vests and detachable collars.

I also love the classic, feminine ladylike details of bows, hearts, gingham, and navy — always navy — and feel like this is something a modern day Kathleen Kelly might wear while bopping around the bookstore The Little Shop Around the Corner or the Big Apple with Joe Fox… F-O-X.

How to Get Kathleen Kelly’s Look from You’ve Got Mail Style


Collars were big in Kathleen Kelly’s world — pilgrim collars, Peter Pan collars, prairie collars — which are huge this fall 2021 season as well. I love that you can add these detachable collars to your sweaters and tops.

In fact, the way this sweet bow sweater vest is styled here is with a removable collar as well. It’s also available here and here.

Kathleen Kelly also loved her cardigans, and it doesn’t get any sweeter than this bow-print cardigan (also available here and here).

If you’re in a matchy matchy mood, you could wear the Maje bow-print jacquard cardigan, sweater vest and skirt all at once. Or, of course, you could wear the sweater vest or cardigan with jeans or a midi skirt. Or, with some boyfriend khakis, a la Kathleen Kelly strolling around the City with Tom Hanks’ character Joe Fox.

Slip on the removable collar, add a pop of color with this red gingham bag, shimmy into these heart earrings and velvet slippers (funnily enough inspired by another iconic movie, Titanic) and you’re ready for a day at the Little Shop Around the Corner.
