Welcome to The Great Try-On. We’re gearing up for fall, and that includes freshening up our wardrobes with some new pieces. We got to try on some of the best fall pieces from some of your favorite brands and documented it all from our at-home dressing rooms so that you can see how they actually look IRL. We hope that our photos and candid reviews will help you shop for fall wardrobe builders and trend-forward pieces that you’ll wear over and over this season and beyond.
Basics are my jam—period. While I certainly invest in statement-making finds from time to time (bags, for example), I gravitate toward those simple pieces when shopping because the more versatile picks in question often become the foundational elements of my go-to looks.
I turn to a variety of stores when sourcing said basics. But if I’m after an elevated piece that I know will last and stand the test of time, Vince is a no-brainer for me. The brand consistently stocks some of the chicest basics around. On that note, I actually had the opportunity to try on a range of new fall styles.
While testing out the latest designs and, you know, serving the looks in front of my mirror, I uncovered a few special gems that could easily become new staples for me. Each pick hit my main criteria for a potential go-to piece—easy to style, comfortable, and modern.
Keep scrolling to check out the pieces I’m referring to along with my reviews. You can also shop each item as well as womenswear must-haves if you go a bit further.
