I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again—I’m a huge believer in shopping for investment pieces. I personally prefer to save up for a few big items every year that I can wear again and again, rather than smaller fast-fashion pieces that end up in my resale pile at the end of the season. Typically, I’ll narrow in on one new piece each season to add to my closet, and this winter is no exception. Whether it’s a great bag, timeless boots, or a coat I’ll throw on for years to come, my list is growing with standout pieces that have caught my eye.
To find out some of the best investment pieces to buy this winter, I asked fashion girls to weigh in with their selections. From fashion editors to influencers in New York, Paris and beyond, these are the cool new pieces the style set is standing behind for winter. Ahead, see the items they recommend and shop their top fashion buys for the season ahead.

"I've been dying for these boots since they hit the runway in February! I know cowboy boots are very of-the-moment, but I've always had a soft spot for them because my dad always wears them. Also, I think the color will transition perfectly back into spring."
"In the past, I always favoured trousers over jeans, but these Isabel Marant pants cut in a dark denim are an amazing hybrid that I know I will get a lot of wear out of. They can be easily dressed up with a button-down blouse, or I'll pair with a crop top for a night out."
