Welcome to The Great Try-On. We’re gearing up for fall, and that includes freshening up our wardrobes with some new pieces. We got to try on some of the best fall pieces from some of your favorite brands and documented it all from our at-home dressing rooms so that you can see how they actually look IRL. We hope that our photos and candid reviews will help you shop for fall wardrobe builders and trend-forward pieces that you’ll wear over and over this season and beyond.
While I love perusing the new-arrivals pages of Zara, visiting the store IRL can be a tad stressful. The cashier line is almost always tremendously long, the dressing rooms aren’t as roomy as I’d like them to be, and clothes are often strewed everywhere. I’m able to cancel out the noise if I make a trip right when the store opens on a weekday, but that’s not always an option I have with a hectic working schedule. But luckily, my job as a fashion editor has a few perks, and getting to try on new collections from the comfort of my own home is probably among the top five. I tried on a lot of pieces, but below, you’ll find my reviews and photos of the eight items that are keepers.
