Go on. Get yourself something nice.
Fall isn't actually, like, officially here yet. But it's almost here. And what a fall it's shaping up to be! If you're not sure how in the hell you're supposed be dressing right now, you're not alone. The general weather-related struggles I always associate with this time of year have only been compounded by the monotony of our largely homebound realities and the difficulties they've engendered when it comes to getting dressed. Put simply: Why should you wear anything but sweatpants this autumn? Honestly, I'm not sure I've got a good answer. But if it's any help, a whole bunch of designers do and we're spotlighting 18 of 'em this week. (Well, uh, maybe 17 actually, not including the pair of—yes—very good sweatpants we had to list below out of sheer professional duty.)
If the various brainchildren of these talented guys and gals can't convince you to switch it up this fall then you, my friend, might indeed be a lost case. But you're not a lost cause, right? Right.
