Of course, fashion month is the industry's opportunity to see the next season's collection first hand, but it's also an opportunity for everyone to take note of what the ultra-stylish showgoers are wearing. Even though the aesthetics among the street style crowd vary greatly, season after season, there are still those pieces that everyone seems to be wearing (whether they bought it, borrowed it, or were gifted it).
Something that we Who What Wear editors routinely do is stalk the street style photos that quickly come our way throughout fashion month. Between New York, London, Milan, and Paris, I sifted through nearly 3000 of said photos and decided that seven pieces have reached major It status thus far. There is lots of Bottega Veneta and Prada this time around, so those brands make up the bulk of the It items list, but I also shopped out more budget-friendly options for all of the items, so there's something for everyone.
Scroll on to shop the top seven It items of 2020 (so far) and their lower-priced counterparts.
Nanushka Cancun Blazer
Ever since Nanushka came to be, there's always at least one vegan leather It piece each season. This time around, it's this gorgeous oversize blazer.

Prada Bowling Handbag
It's been a minute since we've seen bowling bags on the street style scene, but here we are. While the abundance of these bags at Milan Fashion Week indicates that many of these were gifted, it's still very likely that we have an It bag on our hands.
Bottega Veneta Toe-Ring Sandals
There are lots of Bottega Veneta It shoes right now, but this pair feels particularly fresh (plus, they're cheaper than many of the brand's shoes). People are so eager to wear them that showgoers already started doing so in the middle of February.
Bottega Veneta Cassette Intrecciato Bag
Like the aforementioned shoes, practically every Bottega Veneta bag is an It bag right now, but the puffy, quilted Cassette bag is one that we're seeing over and over among the street style and celebrity set.
Sea Zippy Eyelet Collar
Exaggerated bib collars are a surprising 2020 trend, and Sea made it easy by creating an easy detachable one. The white one is currently sold out, but this pretty blue hue is available for preorder. Get it while you can.
Prada Re-Issue Nylon Bag
The mini nylon Prada bags of the early aughts have been born again, and the fashion crowd is embracing it. While not cheap, they're significantly more cost-effective than your typical Prada bag.
