While the thermostat may still say summer, don’t be fooled—fall will be here sooner than you think. In fact, it officially arrives in just a few weeks, and as we sit here in our tank tops, many of our new-season favorites are already shoppable. The store windows are stocked with our favorite cold-weather essentials like chic knits and cozy coats. Our first stop for the season? Vince. The brand’s latest collection is both modern and versatile, ideal for achieving that effortless fall style.

Cashmere sweaters are to cold weather as sneakers are to street style—we can’t imagine one without the other. This year, we’re stocking up on our beloved luxe fabric in hoodie and pullover variations. Wear them under leather jackets for a cool off-duty look that will keep you super snug.
Fall’s answer to summer’s slip dresses has arrived—and they’re equally chic and wearable. This season’s versions are updated with longer hemlines, darker hues, and cinching details, but their layering abilities remain the same. We love to pair ours under long cardigans, and if the weather calls for it, we’ll be layering a sheer sweater and tights underneath.
While we won’t be throwing out our skinny silhouettes just yet, there’s another trouser style on our radar this fall: utility pants. These come in various textures (we’re especially loving corduroy options) and have that baggier fit that makes them street style–ready. Wear them with combat boots and an oversize T-shirt to really channel the utilitarian vibe.
We wouldn’t dream of going into the upcoming season without some fresh outerwear (every fashion girl’s favorite fall purchase). This year, we’re mixing up our fitted trenches with oversize coats to achieve a more relaxed borrowed-from-the-boys look. Our picks lean a little boxier—which means we get to wear as many layers underneath as we want—and come in of-the-moment variations like teddy-bear shearling and plaid. Now the only question is, which cozy coat do we choose?
