How to Shop for Fall Trends Like an Editor

We’re deep into fall, so it’s safe to say we were ahead of the curve when we predicted a few things: Leather everything is here to stay, and the chunkier the shoe sole, the closer you are to fashion heaven. As a fashion editor, I naturally have a running (and never-ending list) of things I’m lusting over. In a perfect world, I’d be able to just click “add to cart” on every single item, and it would magically appear in my closet, but there are these things called life and a savings account that I can’t ignore, so the next-best solution is shopping with Affirm. If you’re not aware of what Affirm is, here’s a quick rundown: It’s a payment alternative to credit cards. Essentially, you can split your purchases into ​easy bi-weekly or monthly payments​, ​you’ll know exactly what you owe upfront and Affirm will never charge you late fees or hidden fees—which means investment pieces are more accessible than ever. My dream come true.

My co-workers and I are true believers of shopping for trends that seamlessly integrate into our current wardrobes, so I was curious to see what they were shopping for this season. Luckily, Luisaviaroma, the Italian-girl hotspot for some of the most-coveted items, is an Affirm merchant, so we were all able to pick up some key pieces we’ve been eyeing all season. See what they are here.
