Fall Shopping List: The Fashion Pieces to Covet Right Now

I know, I know: Fall is almost here. Sorry for not doing cartwheels, but I’m in denial. I’m not ready to give up my shorts and fancy Tevas just yet. I finally got a tan!

But even a seasonal curmudgeon like myself can admit to feeling a tiny pang of excitement at the thought of “early fall” clothing. Why? Because “early fall” is “soon,” and “soon” pretty much means “now.” And there’s nothing I love more than stuff I can wear right now.

Here, six fall items I’m craving because 1.) they’re transitional enough to incorporate into my current wardrobe, and 2.) they don’t make me want to move somewhere closer to the equator.

1. Gauchos

culottes Consider gauchos and culottes the new midiskirt. They were on almost every major runway. I’ll wear them with sandals or mules now, and then when it’s cold, with tights and boots. (But we’re not talking about that, right?).

2. A Kooky Clutch

3. Tassled Loafers

4. Surrealist Jewels

5. A Split Pencil Skirt

6. A Slouchy Sweater
