21 Fall Fashion Pieces We're Buying Based on Personal Taste — Not the Trend Cycle
As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
We're committed to shopping for items that speak to our personal style, perhaps now more than ever thanks to our time in lockdown, where we've reevaluated the way we relate to our wardrobes. We're no longer willing to invest in trend pieces just because we spot them on the runways. If we're going for a look that's trickled down from luxury fashion houses, it's because we actually like it (and probably because we've also found it on sale!).
That's how Dana feels about her slouchy, deconstructed denim, and how I feel about my breezy nap dresses that I'm still shopping for fall, despite the dropping temperature outside. The truth is, I'm dressing for the here and now — with the "here" being my home, since it's where I plan on spending most of my time this October.
My fellow colleagues Hannah, Nikita, Yerin, and Natasha are just like me and Dana, naming the items that have become essentials in their closets this season — even if they're not essentials for everyone else. That being said, I do think you'll find a piece or two that speaks to your current mood, no matter who you are and how you define your original taste. Keep reading to get inspired by the way we're shopping, and feel free to hop on any of our bandwagons.
