Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 fashion and beauty finds on their current wish list

Sartorially speaking, I'm actually a bit excited that the first day of fall is about a month away. After all, fall brings with it that offering of cozy style picks with comfortable sweaters, A+ denim cuts, and cute knit dresses reigning supreme. In fact, many top-notch early-fall items have already begun to hit the new arrivals sections at some of my favorite shops.

Naturally, I thought I’d share with you some of the standouts that have caught me eye recently. Given that I personally live in basics, I wanted to zero-in on those particularly trendy basics that are elevated and forward yet highly versatile in that they can easily be mixed and matched with other simple items. Basically, I think the pieces in question could actually have the potential to make your wardrobe all the chicer. Intrigued? Keep scrolling to uncover my edit of 25 next-level fall basics. You may just find a few of your new seasonal go-tos.
