All the It Items of Fall 2018 (So Far)

Even though fall has barely just begun, the fashion crowd has been wearing the biggest trends of the season for months now. And since fashion month is wrapping up, four cities later, we can say with confidence that we know what the It items of fall 2018 are. 

Spotting It items is a big part of our job, and between street style, Instagram, and those wait-listed pieces that no one can seem to get their hands on, we don't have any trouble with the task of pinpointing them. This season, we settle on 13 pieces that are defining fall 2018. Some of them are specific items, and some are a specific type of item, all of which are informed by the season's biggest trends: '80s, Western, animal print, dad sneakers, and general "extraness."

You know the drill: Keep scrolling to find out which pieces all the cool fashion girls are wearing this fall and to shop them for your own closet.

Rejina Pyo Olivia Bag

This unique little bag has made multiple appearances in every city throughout fashion month. Can you see why?

Acne Studios Manhattan Sneakers

These are the new It dad sneakers.

Animal-Print Skirts

Following the success of Réalisation Par's Naomi skirt, many brands started creating their own version, most of which quickly sell out.

Dior Saddle Bag

Thanks to a huge influencer marketing push to launch the Dior Saddle bag's return, this is the designer bag everyone wants this season.

Prada Flame Sandals

These shoes are major street style photographer bait.

Neon Balenciaga Turtlenecks

Neon is suddenly a huge craze, and this turtleneck is the clothing item we keep seeing.

Mini Boyy Bags

The Boyy bag isn't brand-new, but it's officially everywhere this fall, especially the new mini styles (which couldn't be cuter).

Gucci Journey Boots

A cross between dad sneakers and hiking boots, the Journey boots are in the running to be the new It Gucci shoes.

Céline Alphabet Necklaces

These twig alphabet necklaces have adorned tons of very stylish necks throughout fashion month.

Shop the It Item:

Prada Bucket Hats

Bucket hats, in general, are a very hot item, but especially the Prada logo iterations.

Jacquemus Long Knit Dresses

These formfitting knit dresses aren't exactly easy to wear, but that hasn't stopped the fashion crowd as of late.

Bike Shorts

It's been a while since we've seen a trend catch on as fervently as the bike short trend has. For the most forward look, pair them with an oversize blazer and heels.
