September, we meet again, which means it’s time to overhaul your closet for the ol’ seasonal switch-over. Knits will reign once more, jeans will finally replace shorts, and ankle boots will give your worn-out sandals…the literal boot. Since we members of the Refinery29 Shopping team are always two steps ahead (or, in many cases, a whole season ahead), we’ve already taken stock of what our autumnal wardrobe needs once the temperatures truly dip. The usual hodgepodge of classic black Chelseas, transitional outerwear, and leather handbags abound — but we have a few surprises thrown in as well. Case in point: We’re still holding onto summer basics like tank tops and slip dresses that can soon be fashioned as base layers to our crunchy-weather ensembles (read on for the style cues our staffers plan to execute). We’ve also uncovered a few everyday accessories for throw-on purposes, like a knit head scarf, a pair of status headphones, and a newsboy cap. Scroll forth to see the 31 handpicked favorites — from affordable basics to high-end investment pieces — that make the cut.
