While gearing up for the colder weather, my mind has been preoccupied with trying to figure out which pieces to invest in first. We’ve seen so many bubble up in the last few months alone (artful prints, shearling backs, and chunky cropped sweaters to name a few), making it even harder to choose a starting point. With trends abound this fall, I figured I’d start with the most “wearable” ones.
Of course, what’s considered wearable varies from person to person and from style to style, but for all intents and purposes, my definition includes trends that anyone can pull off with minimal effort. That means you could buy any one of them right now and wouldn’t have to reconfigure your whole closet to make it work. For me, it’s all about pieces that are elevated statements on their own but have a quiet yet interesting edge. From ribbed-knit separates to faux-leather wonders, I’m counting down the five trends I’m adding to my fall wardrobe first. Keep reading to see which made the cut.
