There's nothing like the anticipation of a new season to get me to update my wardrobe essentials. While I hardly need an excuse to talk about the beautiful basics I'm seeing in the market, looking forward to fall dressing is as good a reason as any. With cooler weather on the horizon, I'm already thinking about the staples like boots, jeans, and jackets that will lay the foundation for my new-season wardrobe and naturally, that wardrobe planning also involves a good bit of shopping.

Right now, there are three affordable retailers—Nordstrom, J.Crew, and Abercrombie—who are dropping the freshest fall basics on the market. I combed through each site and found 32 items that are getting me excited for fall and I know will get you excited, too. Scroll down to shop all my finds.
