5 Fashion Best-Sellers to Snap Up Now

Monday, January 13, 2014

While I’m not one for blindly following the masses when it comes to fashion, I have to admit that a store’s best seller list is a great place to start when looking for the hottest new things. One of my favorite haunts is the best seller list at Shopbop, which is always full of great clothing and accessory options.

Over the weekend I spent some time sorting through the recent fashion best sellers in search of can’t-miss shopping opportunities. It wasn’t hard to find some pieces that really are worth following the crowd. Check out my top picks of the top picks…

I’ve been looking for a fabulous pair of Chelsea Boots for about a month now. It all started with an interview with Patrick Stewart that was playing during my taxi ride from JFK to Midtown last month. He was sitting on a stoop wearing a fabulous pair of classic Chelsea Boots. I was smitten. These boots are about as classic as they come in the women's department, and apparently selling like hotcakes. They’re already sold out in my size, so don’t hesitate if they strike your fancy.

Rag & Bone/JEAN skinnies have this tiny bit of slouch to them that really makes them look different than other skinny jeans. They look just a bit cooler, if you ask me. They’re currently available in three “dirty” washes that range from gray to blue-black. If you’re into distressed look jeans, I would grab one of these washes now.

Before you write this Smythe blazer off as just another black blazer, check out the details. The higher-set single-button closure creates a modern silhouette when closed, and the wool fabric has a great texture when viewed up close.

A fun new accessory is always a welcome addition to a wardrobe, right? This railroad spike cuff bracelet is definitely a minimalist piece, but unique enough to be a conversation starter.

I’m a sucker for Vince’s cozy cashmere sweaters to begin with, but this hooded cashmere cardigan has an extra layer of coziness that makes it irresistible. It’s available in both black and gray, either one of which would be super versatile in any wardrobe.
