Emily Ratajkowski Wore the Trendy Basic Everyone Should Order Before Fall

Emily Ratajkowski's street style is a constant source of outfit (and shopping) inspiration, and her latest look is certainly no exception, especially if you're in the market for fall basics. The best fall basics are transitional ones, meaning you can start wearing them during the dog days of summer and continue to do so well into fall. 

While out in New York recently (i.e., not fall yet), EmRata paired high-waisted jeans and sneakers with the trendy basic that you may already own (and if you don't, you probably should): a cropped cardigan in T-shirt material as opposed to sweater material. As versatile as a long-sleeve T-shirt but far more stylish and trend-forward, cropped cardigans are sure to be the basis of many great fall outfits. And brands seem to be well aware of this, as there are tons of great ones to choose from on the market. Scroll to shop a few of our favorites.
