Typically at this point in the summer, I am gearing up for sprucing up my fall wardrobe. Having recently heard that we would be teaching remotely to start the school year here in Oregon, I am a little less enthused than I have ever been for diving into fall fashion. However, I miss dressing up. Does anyone else?
Hopefully you are able to go about your business and daily routine as much as you used to, but here in Oregon, I am staying home far more than I ever have due to the pandemic and restrictions placed on our state. Needless to say, when I go out for just about any errand, I am dressed up and reveling in the opportunity to do so.
With that said, pre-fall collections are being released, and I am certainly going to pour over what I have in my closet now and pinpoint any gaps in my capsule wardrobe. While I will not be purchasing as much as I typically have in the past, I look forward to investing in a couple of pieces that are high quality and timeless.
The one thing I will be investing in this fall and have been throughout the spring and summer this year are books. I cannot have enough books around me as I am finding much enjoyment and comfort in them. I have good news in this department: There are so many wonderful new titles being released this fall, and I have gathered 19 for you to peruse at the end of this post.
So what are some of the trends worth investing in this fall? I have compiled six trends I am seeing in pre-fall collections so far that are worth keeping an eye on. Rest assured on September 1st, TSLL will release its annual Fall Shopping Guide detailing all of the trends worth welcoming into your closet, but until then, I have shopped a few items below. All of them are investment items, but if your capsule wardrobe revolves around any of these styles, save up, and who knows, with the way spring and summer went, you may be able to make a steal of a deal later in the fall season. (Save what you love on Shoptagr).
