Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

As a fashion editor, I’m constantly keeping an eye on what all the cool pieces landing on the market and the key items to buy for the upcoming season. From Instagram to street style snaps to celeb looks and what I’m seeing people wear IRL, I’m always taking screenshots and making mental notes about what to add to my personal shopping cart. As we head into fall, there are some cool items that are already grabbing my attention that I want in my closet.

Ahead, I made a shopping list of 29 cool fall essentials that I’m already thinking about purchasing. From the shoe trend that has landed on every cool person’s wish list to the denim trend that’s set to be huge to the bag that is about to big, these are the finds sitting in my cart right now.
