To outsiders, it must seem like the fashion world moves in a pack. Every season, certain pieces capture everyone's imagination and become the It item — wait-listed and worshipped in equal measure.
And, we get the excitement; after all, there's a world of difference between the subtle pleasure you get from owning a bona fide classic, and the electric thrill of wearing something that's new, now, and unmistakably obsession-worthy.
It's the difference between feeling ho-hum when you pull on the black ankle booties you wear four days out of seven, and the dopamine hit of sliding into a sick pair of suede thigh-high boots. When you wear something truly special, not only do new outfit possibilities suddenly present themselves, a new you seems within reach, too.
Because we think fashion should always be that kind of inspirational, we pulled together the eight pieces the cool crowd covets now — from a perfectly cut jumpsuit to the sneakers you've spotted on every It Girl's feet (and Instagram feed). The pieces ahead aren't just best-sellers, they're fly-off-the-shelf phenomena.
