Every season there are thousands of 'it' pieces; depending on which magazine you read, there is a new must have item to complete your wardrobe. Recently I've subscribed to Harpers Bazaar magazine, which has been a fun read for me. Before this I had consumed most of my fashion information online through blogs, websites and social apps, which is a very raw and stripped down version of the style world.
I love the gorgeous photography in Harper's as well as the professional voice, but one thing I value immensely about online fashion is the lack of urgency for the 'it' piece. There is still a focus on things that are trending, but it's more about working your preferred trends into your current wardrobe instead of buying an entirely new wardrobe every season.
This difference got me thinking about which pieces I found essential and exciting when moving in the current fall / winter season. Sneakers have been a staple for me for as long as I can remember, but for fall / winter, I've been into wearing Adidas classics (the Campus sneakers in grey & the Superstars in black and white). They remind me of an oxford shoe in a weird way... maybe because they maintain a similar structured look no matter how many times you wear them.
Trend-conscious or not, everyone needs a winter coat. I live in Boston so finding a cool coat that can keep you warm on a harsh winter day has been a constant challenge. This year I'm overjoyed to have the Bear Jacket by Blank NYC in my hands, it has the shape of an oversized moto jacket and the fluffy material of a blanket to keep me warm. Along with staying cozy, I picked up two Acne Studios 'Canada' scarves (in grey & navy) to pair with any coat or jacket.
Another everyday essential that I've been into is my Eden bag by Linea Pelle. This one works for all seasons, but by adding some pom pom keychains (I got a few from Primark recently!) you can give it a really cute winter-y feel.
I hope this helps you find those special pieces to work into your A/W wardrobe! What do you think about the difference between the traditional fashion media like magazines and the up-and-coming online fashion media? Has either influenced your style?
