Autumn and its associated plethora of covetable cold-weather wardrobe staples can paralyze the best of us with indecision — specifically as it relates to where we should allocate our hard-earned dollars for the best seasonal ROI. Since we’re of the organized, list-making, compare-and-contrast shopping mindset, we decided to start by polling our teammates on the styles that they’re actually investing in this month; from luxe wool lounge pants to under-$50 convertible leather driving loafers and even a pair of short person-approved kick-flare dungarees.
Then we asked our readers to spill the beans on what they were wish-listing for fall, and their answers did not disappoint. R29 fans from across the nation (and a few far-flung readers across the pond) told us about the chic loungewear, corduroy overalls, shearling jackets, and pie-in-the-sky designer dresses that they’re planning on taking the shopping plunge on. Read on to see what our team and our readers are carting up this fall — and if you want to share your shopping two cents, you can do it by filling out this Google form.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.Levi’s® Premium Vintage Overall

Corduroy is a fall staple for me, and these are cute enough that I can wear them lazing around the house with a sweatshirt OR out and about with a more fitted shirt or cropped tank and heeled booties. I just think these are the epitome of Cool Girl Not Trying At All style.” — Katie, 30, Idaho

“I could wear this when I walk my dog, grabbing coffee after an outdoor workout, or when I WFH. Right now I really embrace multi-purpose in my clothes. I am still interested in ‘special occasion clothes’, sometimes but from day to day I like to wear bike shorts or leggings and a tee or crew neck sweatshirt. I am coveting one from a place like Lulu because I know it will last more than just one season.” — Amber, 32, California
