Thick sweaters, butter-soft suedes, boots of every height, faux fur vests, trench coats: the list of all the things we love about fall fashion goes on and on. Now that summer is officially over, it’s time to start planning your fall wardrobe. Given that there are so many designers, stores and websites out there pushing their latest collections, it’s no wonder most women don’t know where to begin when planning for the season’s well-curated wardrobe. With what seems like an endless number of stylish pieces in each brand’s collection, it can be tricky to decipher between a good investment and pieces you might think are perfect – until you realize they spend much more time hanging in your closet than on you.

In a season that celebrates individuality, the artfully put-together looks couldn’t be more prevalent than now. Women are opting for a much more personal wardrobe that reflects a style full of personality, and trends can be here today, gone tomorrow. If you’re lucky, they’ll return a time or two, but more often than not, once the season has run its course a trend is as relevant as yesterday’s newspaper.

Here, an assortment of must-have basics, year-round investment pieces, and everything in between, for your well-curated autumn wardrobe.
