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.

Overalls have come a long way since the 1940s when they became popular with women entering the manufacturing sector en masse.

Whether it’s the rugged ease of a black canvas version or the sumptuous softness of a sleeveless suit rendered in corduroy or cashmere, this utility-chic tog has seized us with a shopping fever that we won’t shake until we’ve found the perfect pair.

Make that statement.
Although fall signifies the end of summer, it also represents everything good and cozy in this world. Yes, we're ready for cashmere. We just started to notice a crispness to the air and haven't yet transitioned...
I couldn't wait.
These five trends will be everywhere.
If banana bread had a publicist (and what a good publicist she'd be at this current juncture), you can picture her trembling at this fall's upcoming hair-color trends - or at least inviting them out for brunch. Frankly, they sound downright delicious. From "Champagne pop" to "espresso black," these hues clearly take inspiration from the best things in life around you. They're also designed for easy upkeep: "My current recommendation to any client would be a low-maintenance hair color, which means switching from permanent colors to demi- or semipermanent color, or balayage," Karissa Schaudt, a colorist at Maxine Salon, told POPSUGAR. "These are created to have a seamless grow-out and require minimal upkeep - especially during a pandemic, when touchups aren't as scheduled." Most importantly, added colorist Rex Jimieson: "This year, we want our color to transition gracefully into fall by staying away from overly cool or artificial colors. They are the hardest to wear as we lose our summer glow in our skin. I would stay away from blue-based dyes especially such as gray or extrastrong ash tones. They are great for editorial moments with the right makeup lighting and editing but are very fade-resistant and harder to wear against natural skin with no makeup." Need more concrete examples? For the most mouthwatering hair colors that are somehow - some way! - even better than they sound, keep reading. We're breaking down the seven biggest color trends to try in the coming months.
New season, new hair.
Easy yet chic.
The overarching theme of this season's biggest hair-color trends: they look as good as they sound. With "black cherry," "chocolate almond," and "black espresso" hair colors already gaining popularity among brunettes, it only makes sense that "amaretto biscotti" is the next best fall hair color for blondes. Named after the sweet toasted almond cookie, this fall hair color is a warm golden blond that looks flattering on all skin tones. "This amaretto biscotti shade looks like a combination of light and bright confection, toasted almonds with a touch of nutmeg, and organic sugar cane," said Leianna Hillo, the lead colorist at eSalon . "You can almost taste the fresh-baked cookies as you swish and flip your hair away." Hillo notes that this hair color works best on light to dark blond hair and serves as an easy way to spice up your hairstyle for fall and beyond as we transition into the colder winter months. To achieve this look at the salon, Hillo said: "Start with a medium brown or dark blond base, adding natural copper tones to bring warmth and shine to your look. Then pop in a hint of light-reflecting golden tones for those moments when we need to bring a little glow to our facial features."

If you were to combine two of the year's biggest trends, tonal dressing and coziness, you would get a matching sweatsuit. If you're like us, the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of a sweatsuit is a matching velour Juicy Couture moment, but it's 2020 now, and it's only right that the iconic look gets an upgrade. In our opinion, the best way to tackle this look is to make sure your colors match. That way, the look is more cohesive, and then, the world's your oyster. Pair your sweatsuit with sneakers, slides, or slippers. The possibilities really are endless when it comes to crafting this look, and honestly, we can't wait to shop. Whether you are going for an all-white look or prefer to stick to blacks or blues, we found a sweatsuit you're going to love. If you're set on a print, we say, make it tie-dye. Just keep reading to see some of our favorite ways to wear a matching set, then shop some of our most flattering picks! Related: 17 Pairs of Cozy Pajamas You're Going to Want to Wear Every Single Day
Presenting your top-notch fall checklist.
Changing your hair color is always a big decision, and with dozens of options jumping out at you every day - like "champagne pop" and "honey blond" - deciding on just one fall hair-color transition might be a little tough. But if the internet has taught us anything, it's that there's an easier way of determining these things that don't involve much trial and error: your zodiac sign. Your astrological sign says a lot about you: what you're like, what people might experience when they're around you, and in general, the best words that describe your personality, but we think it's also a great tool to use when determining what color to dye your hair. If your Instagram feed and a constant barrage of insider hair-trend knowledge isn't doing much to help you narrow down a hue, keep reading to see our predictions on what fall hair color you should try according to your zodiac sign.

For the last six months, I've pretty much exclusively worn loungewear. While there's nothing wrong with that, fall has inspired me to spruce up my wardrobe again. I'm not quite ready to jump back into a pair of jeans, so I decided to opt for these Old Navy Extra High-Waist Wide-Leg Pants ($35, originally $40). I'm a firm believer that you can never go wrong with a pair of trousers. Not only are they comfortable, but they're also so versatile. There are endless ways I love to style mine. On days I want to be comfy, I just throw on a cozy cardigan and some sneakers. Or I can easily dress them up with a top and slingback heels. No matter how I style them, I find myself wanting to wear them again and again. The flattering silhouette not only looks good, but they feel good, too. I choose them in a beige shade, because I love wearing neutrals, but they come in two other fun options as well. Keep reading to see how I style mine and shop all the colors.
