These 20 Fall Fashion Staples Will Continue to Do the Most This Winter

Since I live in Los Angeles, I usually start my fall fashion game in October when the weather finally cools down and I'm no longer sweating in my knit outfits. (It's fine. I'm fine.) Around this time of year, I'll typically shop for pieces that I can wear straight through fall into winter, which is quickly creeping closer and closer.

Even my friends on the East coast agree that October is the best time for fall fashion. We also agree that when it comes to fall shopping, there's no better place to turn to than Macy's. Below, check out some of the pieces that influencers and fellow fashion editors are buying this month. You'll find everything from straight-leg denim and knit skirts to casual sneakers and tall boots (which, by the way, I've already added to my cart).

Brenna Austin also lives in L.A. and is embracing true fall hues this month. See her picks below.

"This bodycon dress is perfect for a date night."

"This sweater is a classic, and it's best styled with a pair of jeans."

"The perfect cozy cardigan for rainy fall weather."

"I don't think animal print will be going out of style anytime soon."

"A long coat is a must-have for fall and winter."

Aniyah Morinia has a knack for incorporating a jolt of color into all of her outfits. Here's what she's picked for October.

"I've been seeing ruched detailing everywhere for a few months now, but after finding this top, I'm ready to commit to the trend."

"Trends may come and go, but my love for statement sleeves remains."

"I'm such a fan of the colorful approach to fall that's been trending. This knit skirt is the perfect segue from an ultra-bright summer to a more softly colored fall."

"This bodysuit combines two fall trends I'm loving: saturated shades and cutouts."

"Every year when the weather cools down, I fall in love with wide-brim hats all over again. They're a chic addition to any fall 'fit."

Anna Laplaca has that classic but very cool style we all are so keen to re-create. See and shop her October favorites from Macy's below.

"I already have at least five outfit ideas planned in my head with this blazer, so you know it has to be good."

"Find a more perfect pair of jeans for this season—I'll wait. The dark wash and straight-leg shape make these timeless, but the slightly relaxed fit feels so 2021."

"BRB—I'm buying this a few sizes up to get that cool, relaxed look."

"It's confirmed: This is the ultimate layering piece."

"I have no plans to ease up on midriff ties just because it's fall."

Another L.A. girl at your service. Here's how Anneliese Dominguez is updating her wardrobe for October. 

"I'm obsessed with everything from the ribbed knit to the hood."

"My love for wide-leg jeans grows every time I see a new pair.

"You can elevate any look with a chic pair of sunglasses, and that's a fact."

"Cool, casual, and flat-out essential."

"Tall boots are finding their way into my everyday rotation."
