Master of the cozy, sophisticated style and romantic comedies of ’90s Nora Ephron, Meg Ryan is the fall fashion icon of the moment. The actress is best known for her founding roles as ingenuity in films like You’ve got mail and When Harry meets Sally which feature New York, cool guys in waistcoats and long monologues about love, which have come to define the genre of romantic comedy.
By now, the culture rightly recognizes Ryan’s iconic status. The actor takes up fashion moodboards one wool coat at a time – the style of his characters having a moment on TikTok, where the creators dubbed âMeg Ryan Fallâ this season. Users present sweaters, scarves, oversized glasses, and menswear-inspired pieces inspired by her timeless’ 90s looks. (PS NYLON has put together some outfit ideas so you can knock out your own Meg Ryan.)
