17 Best Fashion Purchases of the Year

Hi friends! I hope your New Year is off to a great start with some new-found motivation to achieve goals. Confession: It has taken me a little longer than usual to refocus after the holidays. Is it just me?! Maybe it is because of the whirlwind holiday activities and wedding planning (hello, homestretch!). Anyway, I have been reflecting on 2017 this past week and realized there are some fashion purchases that really stick out. There are seventeen items I would buy and wear one hundred times over. Of course, I want to give you all the details for my best fashion purchases of the year. But first, here is a look at the rave-worthy items in action.

Highlights of my Best Fashion Purchases

A big fashion highlight for me in 2017 was finding a new favorite pair of jeans made by AG. They super comfortable, with the right amount of stretch and a flattering high waist fit. I love them so much that I quickly bought them in a burgundy color. The only downside of these jeans is the price. But for me, investing in a more expensive pair of jeans that fits me properly is totally worth it because I end up wearing them all the time!

One of my most affordable rave-worthy fashion purchase this year was a jean jacket I got from Target. I have wanted a good jean jacket for a while, but many of them feel to stiff or fit in a boxy, unflattering way. This one is such a good find. It’s got that classic style and stretch in the denim that makes it fit perfectly. I also found a great long-sleeved tee at Nordstrom for only $19! I have bought in a striped pattern and multiple other colors. It has side slits that enable me to tuck in one corner at my hip and create a cute asymmetrical look. I love finding staple wardrobe items at a great price!

Perhaps my biggest splurge last year was a suede moto jacket, thought I did get in on sale during Nordstrom’s summer anniversary sale. I love jackets and coats of all kinds but this one is so versatile and has a very stylish fit. I’m looking forward to wearing it throughout 2018.

One fact that might surprise you — last year was the first year (in my adult life) that I bought Converse sneakers. I really enjoyed wearing them throughout the summer, especially with shorts on the weekend. As soon as I bought them, I thought, “Why didn’t I buy these 5 years ago!?”  Have you ever had a similar experience with a fashion purchase?

Hopefully my best fashion purchases provide some style inspiration for your 2018 wardrobe. If you have any questions about sizing or fit, I am happy to help. Now, I would love to hear your thoughts.

Are there any big fashion purchases you are planning to make this year?

Have any new trends caught your eye?

Or, are you praying any fashion trends disappear? 

Personally, I am totally looking forward to wearing more ruffles, suede, gingham, florals and pastels in 2018. I would be quite happy if bodysuits, chokers and the romp-him trends say goodbye!
