I Tried On Madewell's Fall Line—These 9 Items Are My New Staples

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.

There are a few stores I turn to on the regular to complete my wardrobe each season. Yep, Madewell happens to be one of said retailers. The editor-favorite brand actually launched a men's offering a few years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. More specifically, the assortment of top-notch basics continues to pique my interest. I essentially use Madewell items as the foundational elements in many of my most coveted looks. The black skinny jeans, specifically, are one of my tried-and-true staples. That said, the entire fall Madewell men's line that recently came out is quite noteworthy.

So with that in mind, I took the opportunity to order a few of the items I liked to try on and see what would work best for me. I also wrote up my review of the pieces. You know, in case you're in need of a little shopping inspiration for yourself or to recommend to anyone in your inner circle. Fun fact—many of the finds you'll see definitely have the power to become closet go-tos given their highly versatile nature.

Oh, I also wanted to share some of the picks that caught my eye in the women's collection. You'll find those items if you keep scrolling. Okay, enough chatting here. There's some fall shopping to be done.

My review: I rarely wear blue jeans, but this pair spoke to me in the light wash and the of-the-moment loose fit. I like the vintage feel, and there's also just the right amount of stretch that makes them incredibly comfortable. I teamed my new go-to pair of jeans with a classic crew-neck sweater. I selected my normal size (medium), but I'd actually like to try it in a larger size for an even more relaxed look.

My review: Well, well, well, say hello to one of my new staple jackets. This Denim Chore Jacket is the ideal weight for in-between weather. I enjoy pairing it with the loose jeans for a cool denim-on-denim vibe. 

My review: This white tee is fantastic with the modern, boxy fit. I'm also very into the soft sweatshirt, and I like tying it around my shoulders for a directional vibe.

My review: I had to throw my favorite pair of black skinny jeans in here. I've worn this pair for seasons now because of the primo stretch amount and the fact that they don't fade in the wash (like a lot of other black jeans). As I stated above, Madewell makes top-notch denim jackets, so the coordinating topper gets an A+ from me because of the oversize fit.

My review: Shackets still reign supreme for those early-autumn days. I love that I can toss this burgundy pick over a simple look and have a more "styled" silhouette. It also has a worn-in vibe that I like.

My review: I'm always on the hunt for stellar hoodie options to refresh my offering. This one caught my attention because of the quarter zip that makes it feel different from the rest. The boxy fit and stone color are also very appealing.

Wear this vest on its own or over a tee or shirt.

A flawless cut.

Clogs are one of the key footwear silhouettes of the season.

Polo sweater for the win.

I Found the Best Fall Dresses, and—Wait for It—They're All Under $40

After a long summer of wearing dresses almost exclusively (I'm talking linen maxis, strapless minis, and everything in between), I'm not feeling the least bit ready for pants. In fact, I see my dress phase lasting all the way through fall and heading straight into winter (remind me to buy new tights, please). Why? It's simple: Dresses are insanely easy to style and, in many cases, comfortable to wear from my desk to dinner and everywhere in between.

So I've been on the lookout for fall dresses and new styling ideas to go with them in order to bring some freshness into my wardrobe. I'm off to a great start with both tasks thanks to Ceta Walters, who's been wearing Free Assembly's affordable dresses on repeat. See how she's styling the under-$40 styles, and don't blame either of us when you find yourself on a dress kick, too.

Walters is based in Chicago, so she knows a thing or two about dressing for fall weather. Her go-to for colder months is a versatile dress. "I love to layer dresses with a turtleneck or jacket for cooler temperatures," she says. I particularly love two things about this look. First, while it's almost impossible to go wrong with a black-and-white outfit, this combo is especially right. Even those sneakers feature both colors. So chic! Second, the turtleneck makes this look both interesting and practical. Staying warm is important when it's cold out, after all.

As mentioned, versatility is key with fall dresses, and Walters is especially into day-to-night styling. To transition this dress into the perfect outfit for a night out, simply "remove the turtleneck, pop the collar, layer gold necklaces, and add an ankle bootie with a heel."

Walters' second dress choice is the wardrobe piece I didn't know I needed: a sweatshirt dress. I live in T-shirt dresses during the summer, and this style is the natural evolution of that trend. "I love sweats, so this sweatshirt dress was a no-brainer," she says. "Plus, this shade of green is one of my favorite colors, so I simply had to have this dress."

"I don't like having on a lot of layers, but I live for fun jackets that I can layer with a cute dress," Walters tells me. The quilted-fabric trend is continuing to pop up everywhere, so I'm not surprised she chose this particular style. Plus, the dress really pops against those white boots (also from Walmart, FYI).

If you're the kind of person who loves pumpkin patches and apple orchards, then do yourself a favor, and buy this dress to wear for all of your fall activities. 

This dress plus a leather jacket plus chunky boots equals perfection.

Smocked fabrics have been trending for a minute now, so I suggest you snap up this dress ASAP.

This one will look so cute with tights come winter.

Another dress in Walters' favorite green hue.

Fall florals done right.

Best paired with knee-high boots.
