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 favourite 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 autumn purchases.
I felt like I won the jackpot when our senior editor Allyson Payer told me I was the lucky editor who would get to test drive The Frankie Shop’s new arrivals. It’s a fashion person’s brand (industry insiders are very loyal followers), but their minimal-cool aesthetic is approachable to a wider spectrum of people too. I also love how the brand feels perfectly current, but is steers away from super trendy. In other words, once you find your perfect The Frankie Shop piece, you’ll want to wear it for many seasons to come. Speaking of your ideal item, read on to see if any of my favorites from my test drive might just be yours too.
