Do you feel that? The crisp breeze; the sudden craving to trade in your iced latte for a hot cappuccino; the urge to refresh your entire closet…Yep, fall is officially here. Lucky for our wallets (and our wardrobes) there’s an abundance of sales on everything from cozy cashmere to fancy silk PJs to tie-dye sweatshirts (which are, BTW, still very much a thing). But how on earth do we decide what to buy? We tapped PureWow’s fashion director, Dena Silver for the lowdown. Here are her 15 fall fashion picks, all on major sale.

1. Asceno The Milan Silk Button Down Top

Available in sizes XS to L

2. Paul & Joe Sister Jordy Sweatshirt

“What sets this sweatshirt apart from the tie-dye I wore all summer? The cooler fall-friendly tones. And the super cute cat motif.”

Available in sizes 0-3

8. Paris Texas Knee-high Boots
