Is anyone in need of some
shopping inspiration? Well, nobody asked, but I’m certainly delivering anyway. With a dizzying number of new pieces hitting the market, it can be downright intimidating to peruse what’s out there in the hopes of making a little wardrobe update. But that’s where I come in, friends. On a typical day, I do some online browsing to highlight the very best shopping picks of the moment, but today, I’m taking it a step further by showing you what we’re personally adding to our closets and including some inspirational outfit photos.
There’s no doubt
our editors are a stylish bunch. (I look to their Instagrams for my own style ideas.) So when I tell you these new tops, dresses, shoes, and bags are it, I think you’ll agree. From the expensive-looking work tote that Yusra found to Ally’s It-girl Khaite skirt to the corset top everyone needs according to me, keep scrolling for the new fashion favorites we added to our closets in November.
“I’ve been looking for a suede tote that wasn’t at an astronomical price point and this J.Crew one was exactly what I was looking for. It fits my laptop, iPad, makeup bag, and all my other random necessities. Not only is it functional, but it looks good against most of my outfits which is something I personally need in a work bag.”
“While I have to get these pants slightly tailored (the Petite style may have worked better in my favor) I still love them and understand why they’re a constant best-seller. My main woe with trousers is that a lot of them can feel too thick in material or feel a tad stiff on the waist, but Reformation’s Mason Pant is as lightweight and breezy as a pair of tailored trousers can be. I’ve worn these out on the weekend and to the office already and they will continue to be a staple in my wardrobe.”
“Leather biker jackets are either too small, too oversized, and if they fit just right, too expensive. That was until I met this beautiful mango option. It has a relaxed silhouette and the quality is comparable to higher-end jackets I’ve tried on.”
“This silky black dress has been my go-to frock of the season—easy to dress up or down—it drapes on the body beautifully and has a chic silhouette. I’ve been loving it paired with statement earrings and knee-high boots for holiday parties this festive season.”
“When it comes to classic and timeless black leather knee-high boots nothing is better than Neil J.Rodgers’ Eva Boots. They’re insanely chic and comfortable—and best of all they’re easy to walk in.”
“Not only is this cozy puffer jacket water resistant but I also love the fact it can be folded up small into its own pocket—creating a comfy travel pillow! It’s warm and lightweight and has a cool boxy fit. This brown-beige hue goes with everything.”
Holiday dressing can easily veer into cliché territory, which is why I’m extra picky about what I wear this time of year. When I saw Helmut Lang’s silver mini skirt, I knew I had to have it. It’s festive without losing any of that cool-girl vibe the brand is known for. I already know I’ll be wearing it well past the holidays.
There’s a reason why none of the editors on my fashion team can stop gushing about how iconic the Rezek Studio corset sets are, and I’m merely the latest among them.
“I wasn’t entirely convinced that I could pull off a denim maxi skirt since I’m on the short side, but this Khaite one pleasantly surprised me. It’s very chic and is a great alternative to jeans for me since that’s pretty much all I wear, but I like to change it up sometimes. It was also more comfortable than I expected.”
“AllSaints crushes it in the outerwear realm. This longline coat brings polish and elegance to all of my winter ensembles.”
“Anine Bing sweatshirts are so comfy and chic. I’m living for this cozy style in the on-trend blue.”
“I recently wandered into a 260 Sample Sale for Proenza Schouler and walked out with this gorgeous brown-and-white skirt that I’ll be wearing at least once a week all season. Though I’m usually a neutrals person, I decided the rich color needed a bit of acid, so I added a bright-orange cashmere sweater vest that I snagged on sale at Aritzia around the same time.”
“This beauty just arrived on my doorstep so I haven’t properly taken her out on the town yet, but after months of manifesting, she’s finally mine. I’ve long been obsessed with the style of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, who loved the original of this Prada bag, so it felt fitting for me to get one when it was re-issued for SS22.”
“I’m low-key obsessed with this Gant x Wrangler collab. The pieces are all so luxe and retro.”
“I have been seeing midi and maxi length denim skirts everywhere and finally decided to try the look for myself. This one is from Zara, I must say I’m very into it, not only is a midi denim skirt cool and on edge but it’s so easy to style. I paired my skirt with knee high boots and a cozy sweater.”
“I just got this faux fur jacket from Alo and it’s safe to say I’m obsessed with it. It’s so soft and feels so expensive while still being faux fur. I’ll be traveling to Colorado in December around the holidays and this jacket is exactly what I was looking for. Not only that but I kinda feel like Kris Jenner when I’m wearing it, which is always a plus.”
