Grace Na is an industry veteran who launched the editor-favorite label Pistola in 2013. The brand is filled with perfectly constructed denim and ready-to-wear staples that are modern and high-quality. Basically, Pistola offers the clothes you actually want to wear and live in.

Given Na's role as the creative director of the line, she is clearly tapped into what matters in fashion and has a list of the fall 2023 trends that she thinks are absolutely key to building a current-feeling wardrobe.

Below, you'll uncover Na's list of must-try trends, including the denim cut du jour, knitwear pick of the moment, and more. You'll also find styling inspiration from Na and the Pistola shopping finds that fit the bill along with other cool fall staples.

"A bomber is a must-have piece for fall. It goes with everything and quickly elevates your look. I love this oversize fit; the alt-leather fabrication is buttery soft." — Na

"The Alice skirt has done so well for us this year. Some can be intimidated by a midi denim skirt, but ours is so flattering. The front slit, high rise, and comfort-stretch fabrication add to the wearability." — Na

"The Adina is a piece we've made season after season. The beauty of this sweater is it can be worn oversize or true to size. I'm wearing a small here. It's still boxy and cozy yet pulled-together." — Na
