I Found These Anna Wintour–Approved Styles at Nordstrom

In the fashion industry, when it comes to trends, whatever Anna Wintour says, goes—no questions asked. As the editor in chief of Vogue, Wintour is constantly critiquing new trends, seasonal collections, and emerging designers to which she deems whether they are in or they are out. And let's be clear: Wintour's stamp of approval is not easily achieved. That being said, Wintour has claimed a few key styles as her signature staples that she is almost always seen in—styles that have clearly passed the seemingly impossible test. Let me break it down for you.

Overall, Wintour's wardrobe staples consist of a printed maxi dress, layered necklaces, some type of trench coat, knee-high boots, and, of course, her signature sunglasses (which at this point, are rather innate). In addition to these timeless classics, Wintour also will style her outfits with her approved seasonal trend pieces—whether it's a handbag or a new print.

At the end of the day, though, Wintour remains loyal to her signature styles and has practically perfected her outfits down to a science. Fortunately, so have I. I not only scoured the internet for Wintour's approved styles and silhouettes, but I also found them all in one place. Ahead, discover the eight styles Wintour has endorsed herself to shop now at Nordstrom.

Perhaps Wintour's most iconic wardrobe staple is a floral dress. But it's not just a floral dress—it's a very precise floral dress. The dress is typically tailored at the waist, maxi or calf-length, and often has an elevated, mature floral pattern.
