Winter may not be the most universally beloved season, but it may just be the best one for fashion, in my opinion. With scarves, boots, pumps, hats, bags, and knits, it's the season with the most accessorizing potential. Plus, elements textures like knits, leather, and suede are staples of the season and undeniably delightful to wear. But when buying these items, it's best to invest in high-quality options that are made to last season after season. This way, you can spend money on fewer pieces over time, and you can focus on fashion that's made to be treasured for years to come.

Shopping for premium fashion can be expensive, though, which is why I'm over the moon about Shopbop's designer sale, which runs until November 17. The event includes discounts of up to 70 percent off on hundreds of items from designers like Staud, Jacquemus, MOTHER, and more. Below, some of my favorite items from the sale, spanning apparel and accessories for every occasion.
