Don’t you want to know? We did too. So, when we recently had the chance to chat with Shopbop Fashion Director Caroline Maguire at the company’s epic holiday party this week, we couldn’t help but ask: What trends did people buy a lot of this year? As it turns out, many of the same pieces we here at Who What Wear loved were the ones everyone else did too! From embellished accessories to fun faux-fur coats, it really was a good year for statement pieces in fashion but, of course, some reemerged classics as well. With such good iterations of all of them from our favorite brands, I have a feeling they’ll be sticking around for a few more seasons, too.

If you want to see and shop all six of the trends for yourself before the year comes to an end—or they sell out!—just keep scrolling.

Plush Coats

Especially in faux fur and bright, bold colors.

Western Boots

These have been trending for three seasons straight, and we don't see them going away any time soon.

Check Patterns

Think: tartan, plaid, and houndstooth.

Belt Bags

Another cross-season trend that seems to be sticking around for a while.

Statement Knits

Chunky weaves, bright colors, and more.

Diamanté Accessories

A fancy term for all the crystal-embellished pieces we're loving right now!
