You may be reluctant to face the facts, but sooner than later, summer will come to its close. But please, loosen the death grip on that chilled bottle of rosé and just think of all the cozy sweaters, crisp apples, and changing leaves that await you. Feeling calmer already, right?

To further ease your nerves, we asked our team which pieces they’re most looking forward to sporting this fall.


“Without question, athletic apparel is influencing fashion. What better way to dive into fall than with a great piece from the Westbrook XO Barneys New York X Jordan collaboration? I love the Made To Move jacket—arguably the hippest performance piece available.” – Tom Kalenderian

“We saw so many great bucket bags for fall. I have my eye on this style from Proenza Schouler. It’s refined and elegant, but easy enough for everyday wear.” – Tomoko Ogura

*                 *                 *


“The ubiquitous motorcycle jacket appeared in all of the best collections. For truly authentic style, I go with Schott NYC’s Perfecto jacket.” – Jay Bell

*                 *                 *


“This Repossi ring is the perfect accessory to complement the beautiful gray ready-to-wear ensembles. I’m definitely ready for a little sparkle.” – Jennifer Sunwoo

“The leather motorcycle and bomber jackets designers presented are amazing—I love the designs, colors, and textures. These cool jackets will be an essential piece in any man’s wardrobe. They complete a casual or dressy look.” – Marc Piatec

“For me, studs are never out of fashion and this season, I can’t wait to buy Valentino’s Rockstud tote in grey. It’s easy for work or play and can be worn as a tote or a crossbody bag.” -Melissa Gallagher

“I was especially drawn to all of the buffalo checks, plaids, and blanket stripes we saw during the Fall 2014 shows. This vest from Isabel Marant will be a great transitional piece to carry me into early fall. I’ll be wearing it belted over a tailored shirt with jeans.” – Molly Nutter

“I cannot wait for fleecy shearlings and coats and cozy, bulky knits in shades of grey and brown. It’s a great transitional look.” -Agnes Bielska
