We’re barely into November but Instagram is already flooded with luxurious winter items to covet, from those instantly famous Chanel tights to the new Gucci It bag I can’t stop thinking about. I’ve come across lots of cozy, winter-friendly items that are strong contenders to be It items in the near future, but especially with gift-giving season quickly approaching, dropping a lot of cash on designer goods may not be all that feasible.
So, I did what any fashion-loving girl would do and found some more affordable alternatives that are just as cool but much less costly. Winter dressing will undoubtedly be a little different this year, and I, for one, plan on shopping smartly (i.e. for fewer items that I’ll wear a lot). I kept that in mind when choosing these items, so I hope you find them as useful as I do. Keep scrolling to shop the 13 winter It items I’m coveting, along with the alternatives I’d actually buy.
