With next season on the horizon, fall trends and what to buy are the big topics of discussion right now among the fashion set. So which trends really have legs, and which ones are worth glossing over? And which buzzy designer pieces are actually worth putting your money behind?

From the shoe silhouettes they’re behind to the next-season trends they can’t wait to wear, there is no shortage of stunning pieces that landed on their shopping lists. One interesting (and unsurprising) find? Bottega Veneta, the label we’ve crowned the It brand of 2019, is repeated many times on this list. Here, shop 18 fall investment pieces that have been handpicked by women working in fashion, starting with my personal edit.
