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.
I can't stop thinking about the cargo trend. I'd buy these in one or two sizes up for a loose fit.
I've been wearing the black version of this perfect tank on repeat, so I naturally need the nude one as well.
Clogs are one of the key shoes to own for fall, whether or not you're ready.
If you already own a black leather blazer, you'll want to add a white version to your closet. I just ordered one and I'm already planning out all the ways to wear it.
Glove-like over-the-knee boots are a very specific trend I'm suddenly seeing everywhere, and I know they're going to be huge.
The popularity of colorful button-downs will continue into next season, so they're a smart buy to scoop up now.
Vest tops have really solidified themselves as a must-buy piece, and I'm in.
Wear the vest above with the matching pants to tap into the tonal tailoring look.
White denim is having a moment that I'm predicting will last long into fall. This wide-leg trouser-style fit is perfection.
I'm already convinced these will be the key sneakers to own for fall. They're basically sold out everywhere, but I hunted them down for you.
Leather jackets are getting a sleek makeover for fall, and no one is doing them better than Totême.
Cowboy boots are officially having a moment again and I'm finally ready to wear them.
Colored leather outerwear is about to have a moment, so why not scoop up this amazing sale find?
You'll want to make room in your closet for baggy jeans if you haven't already.
Like I said before, I'm obsessing over saturated shades and think these orange Prada heels are epic.
Trouser-style vegan-leather pants are a piece I'd love to add to my closet. I'm especially gravitating to the longer cuts this season.
Fashion buyers have been telling me this Jacquemus shearling jacket is the ultimate investment buy for fall and it's already selling out.
