New Style Essentials For The New Year

We're well-versed in the classics — the LBD, the skinny jean, and the trench coat, just to name a few. But, since a new crop of covetable wares hits the sales rack more often than we get our paycheck, it seems like every item could be a new classic. Can you say fashion overload? That's why we called in associate fashion editor Willow Lindley to pare things down and give us her list of can't-live-without pieces.
From a pair of wear-with-anything sneakers (yes, sneakers!) and a carry-all tote that holds everything to a high-tech combo of the Samsung Galaxy Note® 3 + Gear™ (ideal for keeping a checklist of closet must-haves), these pieces are your best bet for curating your dream wardrobe in 2014 — and beyond. Move over, LBD.
