We hate to break it to you, but summer’s almost over—which means it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear when it’s cold out. This doesn’t have to be a painful exercise: You can rationalize that, yes, puff-sleeve sweaters are a must, and that plenty of other pieces are worth the investment because they’re on sale.
There are a few pieces you always know you’ll need—the knit, the jacket, the sneaker…. Instead of buying the same-old, same-old, we’ve pulled up some exciting alternatives to consider. There’s the leopard-print midi to wear instead of a plain black skirt, the tie-dyed denim if you can’t stand to look at your favorite pair of jeans, and the cow-print cowboy boots that’ll upgrade your yeehaw for fall.
Shop the fall 2019 wardrobe upgrades that’ll bring you much more joy than whatever’s currently in your closet.
