If you’re done with 2017 and looking to get ready for the new fashion year, here’s a list of what’s cool and hot out there at the moment. Already got myself a pair of vinyl pants and now contemplating the rest.
Half of my shopping these days happens on Shopbop so the fact they’re running a year-end sale warms my heart. To be honest, I save everything I like to my wishlist on the website and then just check every once in a while, whether something gets marked down! More often than not these items get sold out before they mark down, but that’s always the case with Shopbop – whenever they have something I really like it sells out within day!
Anyways, I thought I’d share with you some of the affordable pieces from my Shopbop wishlist. You can get an additional 25% off by entering code JOY25 at check out!
There’s always something about these young bag brands, I guess it’s the fact that all the cool fashionistas have one of them, and they look so amazing with a french-girl wardrobe! I’ve scouted the fashion web for the hottest and trendiest bags of the season, which also happen to be way more affordable than the big brands. The real question now is: which one do I get?
1. Simon Miller
Its signature ‘Bonsai’ bucket bag has become the industry’s favorite, it’s clean, modern and very versatile. Plus it has the rings, which everyone is crazy about!

2. Danse Lente
This London-based brand is focused on high quality leather goods inspired by modern architecture and contemporary aesthetics. My favorite bags by Dance Lente all have this sleek metal hardware detail that I’m sure we’ll see a lot in street style reports come fashion month.

3. BOYY Bag
These bags have already been in every street style chronicle in 2017 but this doesn’t make them any less desirable. Sharp lines, masculine shapes, luxurious quality and the oversized buckle are what make this an it bag of the following season.

4. KOZHA NUMBERS
Sleek and glossy, these bags are very reasonable priced and hard to find. The designers behind the brand have focused on traditional manufacturing, ensuring the utmost attention to details, for which these bags are becoming everyone’s craving.

6. Claudie Pierlot
This Parisian brand has been around for a while, but caught my attention just recently with the launch of this beautiful mini tote. The timeless design of the Anouck bag, its excellent craftsmanship and the ring detail make it a very covetable accessory, don’t you agree?

STAUD was launched not more than two years ago and quickly caught the attention of tastemakers Leandra Medine and Alexa Chung. Their vintage inspired bucket bags have this very cool LA girl vibe, making them a favorite of all the top fashionistas.
Today I was checking out Runway Catalog, a luxury online store that recently started shipping to Ukraine and Eastern Europe and I couldn’t help but noticing it carries lots of investment pieces that we saw on the runways and that any fashionista simply must own. And I’m not only talking about high end designer bags, items like a good woolen coat or a silk blouse, or perfectly fitting statement pants can make your wardrobe go a long way, become those timeless staples that you always seem to reach for, whenever you need to look polished and sleek.
I’ve narrowed down my favorites from Runway Catalog to eleven and it was super hard! Do you guys see these items as investment pieces in your wardrobe? Which of these do you love the most?
Let’ face it, elegant minimalism is easier said than done! I always look at those chic girls on my tumblr feed and crave their neutral basic style, but when I’m shopping, my eyes inevitably get caught by trendy and bright colored pieces and sometimes I just can’t resist. But this is essentially my style goal – a look so timeless and classy your eyes rest just looking at it! Luckily online stores know what I’m after, so here’s my selection of those perfect neutral basics that will let you achieve the coveted minimalism.
