While our editors have been talking about fall fashion for months ever since the F/W 22 collections debuted earlier this year, many of the coolest trends and pieces straight from the runways are starting to trickle into retailers. If you’re already planning out what you’ll be wearing in the coming months, that means now is the time to start shopping. Or, if you’re an early adopter, you can get a jump start on the coolest fall pieces for the season ahead right now.

While there are plenty of cool trends worth noting, I’m already placing bets on some of the key pieces to own that are destined to fly off of the shelves first. Specific pieces like the Prada logo tank top and Miu Miu ballet flats are already in huge demand and set to be big on the street style scene. Other pieces like wide-leg cargo trousers and sheer skirts are being interpreted by brands across the board, so they are available at a range of price points if you’re excited about trying them out. Ahead, the cool fall shopping finds I’m already predicting will be big.
