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 favorite 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 fall purchases.
I felt like I won the jackpot when senior editor Allyson Payer, who is the mastermind behind The Great Try-On, 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 its minimal-cool aesthetic is approachable to a wider spectrum of people, too. I also love how the brand feels perfectly current but 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 be yours too.
