7 Fall Trends I'm Not Waiting Another Second to Shop

·4 min read

A fun fact about me is that I've never been relaxed ever. Okay, maybe that's a bit dramatic but the viral TikTok audio is the perfect way to describe my shopping habits right now. You'll probably think I'm psycho for admitting this but I'm already anxious to start planning my fall wardrobe. I know, I know, we're only halfway through the summer but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't already feeling the exhaustion of talking about and shopping for warmer weather. It may only be mid-July but you can't blame me for looking ahead to fall dressing.

Sure, it's still on the early end for fall shopping but retailers from Mango to Moda Operandi have already begun dropping next season items in their new arrivals sections. And you can bet that I'm all over them. So whether you're jumping the gun on fall shopping like I am or are simply craving something fresh to look at, I have just the edit for you. Today, I'm highlighting seven early fall trends—from clogs to knit sets to the next going-out piece—that will be popping off in a few months' time but ones that you can start shopping for now. Because when the trends are this good, why wait?
