Shopping inspiration, anyone? Well, nobody asked, but I'm certainly delivering anyway. With a dizzying number of new pieces hitting the market, it can be downright intimidating to peruse what's out there in the hopes of making a little wardrobe update. But that's where I come in, friends. On a typical day, I'm doing some online browsing to highlight the very best shopping picks of the moment, but today, I'm taking it a step further by showing you what we're personally adding to our closets and including some inspirational outfit photos.

There's no doubt our editors are a stylish bunch. (I personally look to their Instagrams for my own style ideas.) So when I tell you these new tops, dresses, sunglasses, jewelry items, and shoes are "it," I think you'll agree. From Kristen's stunning Saint Laurent slingbacks to Drew's editor-approved sweater that's a "buy immediately" pick and a few of our personal faves from our very own namesake collection, keep scrolling for our new fashion favorites.

"If there's one thing I splurge on, it tends to be shoes. Recently, I can't stop staring at everything designed by Saint Laurent and added these metal toe-cap slingbacks into my closet, and it feels so great to have some fun spots to wear them now that events are on my calendar again."

"My wallet hates me. I’ve been busy clicking 'purchase' nonstop this month. Most recently, I added the mini Jodie to my handbag collection after months of lusting over it. Considering Daniel Lee’s recent departure from Bottega Veneta, it feels extra special. The mini Jodie comes in an array of colors, but what I love about this one is the patent finish, which is super easy to wipe clean. Overall the bag is on the smaller side so I have to remember to edit what I take with me."

"Everyone talks about Nanushka's faux leather, but the brand also has a few heavy hitters in its ranks that are a bit more under the radar. I'm so into the use of logos in this top—it's not an instantly recognizable logo, which I think adds to its cool factor, and the choker detail is a micro-trend that feels timely."

"Call me biased, but this T-shirt bodysuit is next-level. I've been living in it in both white and black thanks to its perfect boxy cut and hassle-free tucking situation."

November might seem like an odd time to add a cropped top to your closet, but I recently took a trip down to Palm Beach, where I promise the weather warranted some exposed skin. I like how the button-up has a polished vibe that offsets its shrunken hemline.

Everywhere I take this mini denim-bound bag, I get compliments on it. The petite shape and unexpected material are definitely intriguing, so who cares if my phone doesn't make the cut?

Yes, this is technically a beach coverup, but I love the idea of wearing it as a wrap skirt with a crop top and sandals in warmer weather. The retro print could easily be mistaken for genuine vintage.

"By the time November comes around, I just can't get enough of slouchy sweaters. They're so easy to layer and have fun with, so I've already ordered a few this season but there's just one that stands out from the rest. The quality of this knit tops all of the other ones in my collection and the subtle rips and pulls make it feel so effortless."

"I'm so obsessed with this Alex Mill sweater. It's just so dreamy. It's also a compliment magnet. My winter go-to for sure."

"I didn't know if I could pull off pink sunglasses, but Lexxola's are surprisingly flattering. And the world looks prettier in rose."

"I haven't taken off this Who What Wear Collection sweater since it arrived. Size up for a roomier fit. Highly recommend."

"Phone, keys, wallet, sunglasses. I never leave home without these beauties, which have already earned so many compliments. They come with a gorgeous leather case, too."

"Me and our associate branded editor Aniyah both ended up buying this jacket around the same time and both wear it all the time—it's just that good. A lot of the quilted jackets with this look were coming at a hefty price point (over $200) but this one is under that price point and the quality is impeccable. It's light enough to layer underneath without looking bulky but still is warm enough for when it's slightly chilly out."

"This has to be my favorite (and most worn) purchase this month. It hits at the perfect length right above the ankle, it's comfortable as can be and honestly I wear it with non-loungewear too. My favorite outfit includes a cable knit sweater, jeans, and these boots. Everyone needs a pair of Uggs in their winter wardrobe."

"I know everyone loves tailored trousers but sometimes I need something that's a little bit more casual (and comfortable) for everyday but not as casual as knitwear or sweatpants. This pant meets that match perfectly. The fabric is comfortable, it has a relaxed fit, and goes with just about everything. It's a wide leg that hits right above the ankle, which is rare for someone who's 5"3. I might just be adding one of the other colorways to my cart."

"I recently got these pretty riding boots, and I'm in love. I'll be wearing them with short dresses and semi-sheer tights for fall and winter, but they'll also look great tucked into skinny jeans."
