Welcome to The Great Try-On. With fall on the horizon, we seized the opportunity to try on some of the best fall pieces from some of your favorite brands, documenting the process along the way. We believe that the most foolproof way to shop online is to see an item IRL and to read candid reviews, so we hope that this leads you to some successful fall purchases.
Funny enough, I’m sitting in my apartment writing this the morning after attending Staud’s star-studded and stunning S/S 22 runway show on what was the last day of New York Fashion Week and my final event of the evening. From the casting—hello, Irina Shayk, Precious Lee, Lily Aldridge, and more—to the guest list (which even boasted Larry David) to the clothes and accessories that stole our hearts, it was a night to remember and an ending worthy of NYFW’s long-awaited IRL comeback.
Of course, while I couldn’t help but mention it, that’s not actually what we’re really here to talk about. If you could bring your attention back to the current season for a moment, I’d like to take this opportunity to brag about my recent Staud “haul,” in which I got to try on a ton of brand-new pieces from the brand’s fall 2021 collection, which is in stores and ready to shop right now. From matching sets (of both the cozy and party-ready variety) to soon-to-be It bags to boots and a coat to remember, below are nine must-see pieces I tried on at home and truthfully didn’t want to return. Plus, at the end, you’ll find even more of my favorites from the brand’s current offerings, so to get started, simply keep scrolling.
