How style setter Olivia Palermo upgrades her travel

And Ziplocs—I can’t live without Ziploc bags.” —Olivia Palermo GALLERY: ELLE Canada editors on their fall upgrades

How designer Prabal Gurung upgrades his zen

“I wake up really early and do 20 minutes of meditation every day.

How model Miranda Kerr upgrades her style

"Since my son Flynn still likes to be carried, I need to think about clothes that don’t get creased. I love layering pieces and it depends on the day and where I’m going, [but] when I’m with him, I want to feel confident and comfortable at the same time. I don't feel like I necessarily have to dress down, but I feel like it’s all about the fabrics that I choose." —Miranda Kerr MUST-READ: Why Miranda Kerr is unstoppable

Why trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort wants to upgrade our focus

“People want to be everything for everybody. Brands start with jeans and then they’re doing hotels, soup and water. This is watering everything down. I think we are going into a mono-needs period where people will do fewer things really well—we’re seeing it with food already. There are shops just for oil or pepper and salt. You can apply this in your own life. Upgrade by being more centred and focused.” —Lidewij Edelkoort GALLERY: 10 fashion pieces every woman needs

How fashion mentor Tim Gunn upgrades his cocktail party

"It’s good to have a theme, it’s good to have a signature drink, and I have to say, I do serve Nespresso cocktails. It’s what people talk about and you end up having a memorable party. I think it’s important to have a signature dish to serve. It’s very important, no matter how much you have to act, to be relaxed and appear confident." —Tim Gunn GALLERY: 10 ways to upgrade your wardrobe this fall
