6 Pieces to Add to Cart for Fall
Labor Day is exactly six sleeps away, which means that fall—in all its crisp-air, golden-leaf glory—is nearly upon us. In the interest of being prepared, here’s a short list of the newest, easiest-to-style pieces not-so-distant-future you will be happy to have on hand.
Dressing for September can be a roller-coaster ride: sixty-five degrees at wake-up, a spike past eighty by lunchtime, then back down again. And while a crewneck sweater goes from snuggly to stifling real fast, a button-up cardigan—whether it be a staple or part of a more elaborate set (yes, that’s the cashmere-bra-and-sweater combo that Katie Holmes put on the map)—has climate control built in.

The key to owning a color this bold is to keep your other choices—sleek hoops, blank-slate bottoms, adventuring sandals—clean and uncomplicated. It’s a failproof formula that even minimalists can get behind.
Wear It With
Black and khaki: They’re a duo as iconic as burgers and fries, Netflix and chill, GP and Elise. When the cuts skew modern, the pairing—say, swingy culottes teamed with a slim turtleneck tank—can be mixed, matched, and worn on repeat.
After a summer of sundresses and cutoffs, putting on real pants again is an adjustment. A bootcut style eases the transition (this G. Label pair makes your butt look fantastic), as does a little denim-on-denim action (take notes from the Celine show and leave the shirt’s top buttons undone).
CELINE SPRING 2020
Although Jonathan Anderson makes a version of this handkerchief skirt almost every season, this iteration is a fast favorite. The autumnal hues? On point. The midweight wool? C-o-z-y, especially with tights. And then there’s the fact that it’s so damn versatile.
