My Dream Fall Wardrobe Looks Something Like This, so I Thought I'd Share

As a fashion editor, one of the things I get most excited about is the onset of a new season and everything that entails. Trends from the runways are starting to take off on Instagram and among the street style set, new pieces from designers are just dropping at retailers, and all of the fashion things I've been writing about for months are finally available for me to add to my closet and start wearing. No, I'm not quite ready to part ways with summer fashion just yet, but I can't deny my excitement about all things fall fashion.

It's a fashion-newness overload in the best way possible, and like clockwork, I reach maximum excitement levels just before the new season officially kicks off. Fall 2021 is no exception. I already have my eye on plenty of new fall fashion finds that are sitting in my cart, and I just need to share them. From the color trend I can't stop talking about to the unexpected piece I know will be a fashion-person staple to the investment items that are about to be huge, next season is set to be fun and cool and is inspiring me to start shopping now. Ahead, see the fall fashion finds sitting in my cart.
