Do you ever start shopping and realize that you don't just want one or two items but suddenly crave an entire wardrobe overhaul? Because, same. On a recent visit to peruse the new-arrivals sections of my favorite affordable sites, I came across so many strong pieces that I started envisioning a whole new wardrobe with these chic updates. The selection at COS, Mango, and Zara is always pretty strong, but this particular season, they have the coolest version of fall wardrobe basics that really caught my eye and are making me consider replacing the very versions in my own closet.
Yep, I thought my fall wardrobe was all set and then these finds completely changed the trajectory of my seasonal style. Whether it's a tailored wool coat from Mango that makes any outfit instantly chicer or a long denim skirt from Zara that will replace my jeans for the time being, the new fall staples I'm about to show you have something special about them that set them apart from what's already sitting in my closet. I can't stop thinking about these cool finds and I bet you won't be able to either.
Pointed-toe slingbacks just shot up to the top of my shopping list right now.
It's time to stop losing sleep over whether to be a high-rise or low-rise person when these convertible pants exist.
The kind of unexpected top that people will go out of their way to ask about.
The coat that's favored by fashion editors and celebrities alike.
Metallics are back in a big way this fall. This slouchy shape is cool and practical.
If you're going back into the office, it doesn't get much cooler than this work bag.
If you, too, would like to be influenced by Bella Hadid and Co.
