Been itching for a new bag? Or a new pair of boots? I mean, yes, always, but there's something about the New Year being right around the corner that's got us looking for something shiny and fresh. After doing some serious poking around in pursuit of these very things, we struck gold when we came across the latest drop from Etienne Aigner, an NYC-based designer that believes in the same thing we do: owning super-stylish pieces that are kind to our wallets but also impeccably crafted. An embossed minaudière? Found it! Sock boots in an on-trend deep berry tone? Those too. The fashion set is clearly on the same page, as we've spotted pieces from the collection making appearances all over our social feeds. Below, discover must-have selections from three of our favorite Instagram follows.
Julia Comil, a real-life French girl based in Los Angeles, has her eye on the embossed, cream colored perfection of a minaudière that's currently on my wish list along with a pair of classic sock boots. The sleek, fuss-free silhouette of both pieces feels perfectly Parisian, non? Bonus points for major versatility.
One thing we've learned over our years in this biz: Sock boots will never not be a thing. These would look perfect under cropped flares or boyfriend jeans.
Chicago-based blogger Anne-Marie Dumas tells us she's eyeing the collection's darker pieces for the months ahead. Her picks feel especially warm and cozy (key for life in the Windy City right about now). A cognac-toned boot and a deep maroon bag? Sign us up.
If we had to narrow in on our very favorite thing about these boots, we'd have to go with the cone heel.
L.A.-based blogger Sarah Najafi is taking a more casual approach to her shoe and accessory selection by picking up a plaid oxford and a foldover tote. If you're traveling for the holidays, these options are ideal for a festive, chic, and comfortable pairing to style with your outfits.
