6 Winter Shopping Picks Our Editors All Agree On

If you stepped inside the Who What Wear offices, chances are you'd see our editors wearing many of the same trends. As different as our personal style can be, there’s no question that we collectively gravitate toward many of the same standout pieces each season, and right now there are plenty we agree on across the board. What are the pieces you’ll spot in our closets and shopping carts at the moment?

Right now, we’re all going wild for a shoe trend so new we’re only seeing it from one buzzy designer—but I’m sure the silhouette is set to take off in no time at all. We’re also leaning hard into animals prints that have exploded this season—and so many more. Scroll down to see which shopping picks our editors are endorsing this winter, from pieces we’re already wearing to others we can’t wait to get our hands on.

Managing editor Michelle Scanga names Amina Muaddi's "pyramid" heels the coolest new shoe trend. The designer's "shoes satisfy every fashion girl's fantasy," adds assistant editor Anna LaPlaca. I myself discovered the new shoe brand when it launched this summer and can't wait to get my hands on the signature heel silhouette.

It turns out that animals prints are one of the most-loved trends at the Who What Wear office. Market editor Nicole Eshaghpour has been leaning hard into leopard print pants, as have I.

On the other hand, fashion editor Lauren Eggertsen has fully embraced zebra and recently wore the print in a head-to-toe look.

By Far's just-launched bag collection is already being carried by Gigi and Bella Hadid. But the best part? The bags cost between $500 to $600—a price tag that is 60% cheaper than most It bags, as editor Allyson Payer points out. Editor in chief Kat Collings just picked up the Rachel style herself.

Remember those throwback fleece jackets you wore during middle school? They're back, everyone. Assistant editor Anna LaPlaca just wore one on a snow-filled day in Montana. Follow her lead and tuck yours into high-waisted trousers to make it feel very 2018.

Michelle has already adopted the headband trend she spotted at the S/S 19 shows. "There were a lot of headbands on the runways in Milan, specifically at Prada, which I'm so into," she says, "I'm already supporting the trend and accessorizing with an affordable option I found on Amazon." I also spotted the trend at Alessandra Rich's show in Paris and have one sitting in my shopping cart right now.

Senior news editor Erin Fitzpatrick just ordered the black and white Lucile coat from Reformation—and I did as well. Personally, I can't imagine a more perfect piece for fall and will just be waiting on the weather to permit wearing it.
