For fashion editors, there is no seasonal task more emotionally satisfying than preparing for the arrival of fall. (There’s a reason September issues are so fierce.) In an effort to speed up the process this time around—the clock is really ticking here—I tapped two of Who What Wear’s top fall dressers for tips on putting together a handful outfit formulas you can rely on all season long. And as expected, they did not disappoint. The six looks they’ve created revolve around some of the new season’s most trend-forward pieces, from a stunning pair wide leg jeans to thick loafers I have already added to my shopping cart.
Read on to see the fall-ready ‘passer’ editors Anneliese Dominguez and Judith Jones put together. Best of all, you can scoop them all up in one online shopping spree, beware Anthropologyour favorite source for elevated yet effortless dressing all year round.
Jeans are the product Anneliese turns to again and again, regardless of the season. “If you look in my closet, you’d be shocked at how many pairs I have in there,” says the self-described denim devotee. “But look, can you blame me? There are so many different style options! This is my first pair of flared jeans from Good American, and I have to admit I’m a fan. Even though they’re denim, they feel a little dressier than my average pair of straight legs, so I paired them with this silky Hutch Nyla Wrap Blouse for a perfect, exalted feeling.”
Second, this is a very cool, very Californian look with a hint of retro appeal. “If you were to look up ‘Anneliese Dominguez’ in the dictionary, you would probably find a picture of me in this ‘fit, or at least a repetition of it’, says Anneliese. “It’s classic, yet perfectly trendy, if I do say so myself. This season, my layer of choice has to be anything with a buttery leather feel. I’m obsessed with blazers, motos and bomber jackets alike. This one is exceptionally fun with its cool cedar color. It adds that extra punch that a black or cream blazer wouldn’t.”
Last but not least comes this elevated look that just screams fall. “I’ve been really into chocolate brown this season so I was so excited to find these Sam Edelman loafers, says Anneliese. “Not only are they trendy with their chunky heels, but they’re also ultra-comfortable. I styled them with these wide-leg plaid pants and a fitted sleeveless vest (both from Hutch). It’s one of those looks that feels put together (blazers just do that, don’t they?), but in reality it’s really easy.”
Judith says this French girl-approved business-casual look fits her aesthetic to a T. “Denim is a must-have in my fall wardrobe and I styled a contemporary wide leg silhouette from Good American with a crisp white button-down, a smart camel jacket and brown suede boots,” she explains. “I finished the look with a trendy pearl and gold necklace, modern gold hoop earrings and a soft leather tote – perfect for carrying all my fall essentials. Overall, it’s classic, elevated and so versatile for everything from work to evening drinks.”
This sophisticated, versatile look embodies a laid-back elegance that’s perfect for day or night. “It doesn’t get smarter than a beige blazer paired with wide-leg black trousers and sleek black suede boots,” says Judith. “Bold gold earrings and a trendy woven shoulder bag complete the look.”
An all black look is perfect for a night out when you want to look casual but cool and feel like you’ve made an effort, says Judith. “I love a great pair of loafers, and this chunky pair feels trend-forward and fun,” she adds. “I styled them with a black mini skirt – an item I’ve been wearing a lot lately – a black turtleneck top and a trendy leather jacket.”
