I Spot Trends for a Living—Here's Everything I'm Buying for Fall

As a fashion editor, I'm acutely aware of all the current trends on the scene and have basically made it a pastime of mine to uncover emerging micro-trends about to make it big next. Since I spend so much of my time trendspotting and reporting on the styles that are in and out, I tend to rack up a massive shopping list for all the holes in my own closet. At the start of each new season, I keep a running tab of all the pieces I want to add to my wardrobe to nail each of the overarching trends I'm seeing.

On my list of trendy clothes for fall 2020 are items such as chunky loafers, reworked knits, and bootcut jeans (just to name a few) that represent each of the larger trends I want to test out myself. By keeping a list like this, I'm able to avoid making impulsive purchases and ensure that each item I add to my virtual shopping cart is one that I'll be satisfied with in several months' time.

These have been sitting in my cart ever since I first laid eyes on them. Dare I say they're the best jeans of fall 2020?

I can already tell that wearing this with jeans and boots will be my fall uniform.

This feels just different enough while still being classic.

I'm officially in the market for a basic dress that's, well, anything but basic. 

Yep, sweater vests are officially happening—I'd style this with a pleated mini skirt and loafers.

This rich shade of chocolate brown has completely won me over.

This is the ultimate wardrobe basic this season.

Another way I plan to tap into the chocolate brown trend.

I think about this stunning bag a lot, and this fall might be when I finally make it mine.

I can already imagine wearing this with slip skirts for a '90s feel.

Leather weather is coming—and I plan on being prepared.

I'll never stop buying cardigans if they keep making them cuter.

The boxy shape make these hoops look way pricier than they are.

Grunge-meets-school-girl vibes, anyone?

Myself and every other WWW editor is lusting after these, and for good reason.

I love how polished this polo dress is. 

It's not too early to think about winter jackets if they look this cool.

I'm still on a pearl necklace kick, what can I say?

I can't resist anything with a ribbed material, and that includes masks.

Don't worry, I'm still planning my loungewear looks as much as my other fall looks.
