I don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with pretty things. Maybe it was too many Gossip Girl reruns (my love of fashion did begin with Blair Waldorf) or the number of frilly, ultra-romantic designs I spotted during fashion week at brands like Sandy Liang and Batsheva, but the pretty-things trend has taken over my heart and soul, and all I can think about are babydoll dresses and lace slips. 

We've written about the pretty-things trend plenty here at Who What Wear, but for some reason, I can't shake the excitement I feel when I see oversize velvet hair bows and bouclé tweed jackets. Thankfully, I've spent the last eight hours on Shopbop combing through all of its offerings to find the cutest things to ring out this year with. 

Below, shop some of Shopbop's prettiest pieces available now. But hurry, they won't last long.
