Maybe I'm still conditioned from those back-to-school shopping trips of my youth, but I love any fall item that conjures a preppy look—cable knits, handkerchiefs, basically anything that longs for the addition of a pair of tights. Since this collegiate vibe is trending this season, it's definitely worth noting that Banana Republic always delivers on this theme. Its new arrivals section is filled with all the classic fall must-haves you'll reach for year after year, and the best part is they'll always stand the test of time in terms of style and quality, which is what I look for most when I'm investing in trenchcoats, trousers, and soft sweaters. Curious to see what I'm shopping for the upcoming season? Keep scrolling.

Copy Editor, Branded Content

Aralyn Beaumont joined Who What Wear as the copy editor for branded content after a career in food media. Years of poring over intricate recipes with a fine-tooth comb and working with high-profile chefs has prepared her well for working with fashion's top brands while honoring Who What Wear's voice. Her background as a research editor makes her a finicky editor who will probably care too much about making sure all copy is as factually accurate and aligned with the house style guide as can be. Maybe it's because she's a Gemini, but her personal style is impossible to pin down: One day you'll see her in a turtleneck sweater tucked into a midi skirt with heeled boots, and the next, she'll be wearing mom jeans, a white Hanes tee, and classic Vans. At the end of the day, her style reflects her various moods. Sometimes it will be feminine and elegant, and others it will be grungy or androgynous. Certain things will always remain constant, though. She'll forever be on the hunt for the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans.
