Back-to-school shopping is steeped in nostalgia for many of us, and even if we’re not heading back to the classroom, the start of our own metaphorical school year inspires an impulse to ready ourselves for fall, starting with our wardrobes.
This season, it’s less of a checklist and more of a check-in: What piece would pull our outfits together? Do we have the right layers to bundle up? Or a sturdy boot we can wear without fail? And, of course, what’s the thing that we’ll look forward to wearing most – you know, the kind of outfit you might save for picture day?
Our editors combed the virtual shelves, inspired by our own version of “back-to-school” shopping. Some of our “supplies” veer on the practical side – like the aforementioned boot – while other pieces are straight-up joy inducing: think whimsical sweaters and sweatshirts to pair with your favorite jeans. And if you haven’t taken the season’s big trends, like the sweater vest, for a spin yet, our editors have a pick for you, too.
Read on for the 19 pieces our editors are adding to their wish lists and their carts.

Jennifer Lawrence Is Expecting Her First Baby With Husband Cooke Maroney!
Jennifer Lawrence is going to be a mom! The Hunger Games actress is expecting her first baby with her art gallery director husband, Cooke Maroney, according to People. This pregnancy news comes just under two years after the pair tied the knot in Rhode Island in October 2019 – with many famous friends, like Emma Stone and Amy Schumer, in attendance! – after becoming engaged earlier that year.
Although the couple keep their relationship fairly under the radar, we’re hoping to get some peeks into their lives as new parents after baby is born. Congrats to Jennifer and Cooke on this very exciting news!
