Recently, I’ve turned to Instagram as a case study of what’s happening in fashion—a hobby that’s only grown over the last few years. It’s amazing to me, watching trends emerge and then explode across the iPhone app, often spreading within a matter of days after I first spot them. Take leopard pieces, for starters. While it was predicted to be a big trend this fall, I couldn’t have known just how huge the print would be until I saw it spread across Instagram and cause a sellout frenzy for one of the most in-demand pieces we’ve spotted all year. Now, the print in all of its variations is a bona fide It piece among the fashion crowd.
As the leopard trend continues to be very much in demand, there are other fashion pieces that are highly coveted in the fashion circles as well. Ahead, I’m highlighting some of the latest arrivals to the It-piece landscape. Scroll down to see how fashion girls are wearing them and to shop my edit of pieces to add to your shopping cart.
