Fall used to mean new notebooks, a fresh backpack, and however many three-ring binders your teachers deemed necessary. Now it’s a time to rethink your uniform, swap out summer loves, and start layering. See our favorite autumn finds below, plus a whole new way to shop for designer bags.

The idea of switching out your bag seasonly starts to seem sensible with Fashionphile’s guaranteed buy-back situation. Upon purchase, the site will tell you how much they’ll buy the bag back for if you sell it within 180 days (70% of whatever you pay).
Corduroy is having a major renaissance this fall. Pants are the most common spot to include some lines, but we love doubling up with the season’s must-have jacket. Classic blazers are always a good layer to ease into chillier weather and feel especially right in a warm cord.
Smell is connected to memory so—ipso facto—switching up your fragrance to confirm that a fresh season upon us makes sense. Look for a bottle that’ll be pretty set on display. Right now we’re into Vuitton’s mix of peony and patchouli (for the scent and the minimalist look)
When it’s time to slip out of your sandals, but not quite boot-weather, the ideal fix is a loafer (and better yet if it’s leopard). A sleek, almond toe is flattering, and the sturdy construction makes it perfect for busy days.
Embrace crisp fall weather that lets you get away with wearing some of your springy dresses—so long as you layer them appropriately. The value of a roomy knit can’t be overstated: Pull it on over sundresses and with silky skirts, then live in it with jeans on the weekend.
