The Unexpected Place We're Scooping Up Winter Trends

One thing’s for sure: Up until now, 2018’s biggest trends have walked on the wild side. First there were all manner of transparent accessories; then we had teeny-tiny sunglasses, fruit-shaped earrings, and beyond-chunky sneakers. Which might explain why we’re now looking to less conspicuous, more functional styles as the year draws to a close.

Think outdoor-inspired streetwear styles (hello, on-trend puffer jackets and hiking boots), only primed for winter. Enter: the OG outdoor brand, Eddie Bauer. The brand is basically the one-stop shop for this super-wearable trend that’s only just getting started. Step away from that microscopic beaded bag and see the five practical yet stylish pieces we’re picking up before the year is over.
