I Used to Give Fashion Advice to Millions of People—These Buys Are Worth It

I've worked in fashion for more than five years, and as an editor at a legacy print magazine, I dished out all my best recommendations and curated shopping picks to millions of readers. And if that sounds like expectations were high, they were! Sorting through products may seem like fun and easy work to anyone else, but there is so much thought put into it and endless hours of combing through websites to make sure I've compiled nothing but the best items. 

Here, I've rounded up 30 buys that are worth the splurge—or non-splurge, since there are super-affordable pieces included too! Whether it's from my personal experience of wearing them or reading the glowing reviews, I think you'll be very satisfied with these picks that you can definitely wear on an everyday basis. From stylish sweaters to accessories like designer bags and jewelry, you'll find at least one piece (but most likely more) that you'll be obsessed with. Keeping the seasons in mind, you can wear these pieces in colder weather and transition them into spring and summer to get the most bang for your buck. Can't wait to see what you get! 

Birkenstocks are always a great investment—especially these ones with shearling for colder temps. 

A midi skirt in this gorgeous tan shade? Yes, please. 

This is an Amazon fan favorite, so if you don't take my word for it, just look at the reviews.

Yet another Amazon fave, and for good reason between the comfortable fit and the fashion-forward design. 

You probably need a new pair of black boots, so you might as well get these top-rated lug-sole ones.

Yuzefi's designs are kind of like art, but you'll get a surprising amount of wear out of this perfectly sized shoulder bag.

Yes, everyone knows about Uggs. Yes, they are 100% worth it.
