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.


Icy tones are going to be a big 2023 color trend. Why wait to wear them?

I said "ooh" to myself when I saw this.

Pointed-toe slingbacks just shot up to the top of my shopping list right now.

This '90s silhouette has my heart.

A small but outfit-making detail.

It's time to stop losing sleep over whether to be a high-rise or low-rise person when these convertible pants exist.

An elegant silhouette I'm eyeing for the holiday season.

The kind of unexpected top that people will go out of their way to ask about.

What can I say, the '90s are really influencing me lately.


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.

I want to buy a $1200 Prada pair but these give off a very similar feel.

It will instantly become your next wardrobe staple.

My search for the perfect trench coat has just come to an end.

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.

The thicker strap makes this look quite forward.

Mango has finally restocked their best-selling Y2K dress just in time for the start of party season.


*The* sweater of fall 2022, everyone.

An outfit I'd like to re-create from head to toe.

These could easily pass as Jil Sander or Marni.

To wear underneath tall boots or with ballet flats à la recent runways.

Just an excellent boxy black blazer.

This looks so cozy, I can only imagine what it feels like in person.

The fuzzy texture adds a dash of style to cold-weather outfits.

Did I just stumble upon the perfect turtleneck sweater?
