There’s a lot that goes into a rock-solid wardrobe: foundation basics, statement accessories and a great tailor. But what’s the one thing all inherently chic people do?

They plan ahead and buy early.

Yes, it’s hard to think about October when you’re about to spend the week in Sagaponack. But you’ll thank yourself later for securing your size in those ankle boots now. So we rounded up nine pieces you should consider snagging early.

SELF PORTRAIT’S BRIGHT COCKTAIL DRESS

The reigning red-carpet MVP, this London line has been seen on the likes of Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams. But more importantly, you can wear it from Labor Day to Christmas.
