Few collections better represent this season's key pieces than Shopbop's Winter Lookbook. With an emphasis on solid colors and thicker fabrics, all the outfits have a certain air about them indicating a progression from autumn to the present. The lookbook is peppered with all kinds of cold-weather statements, from a street-chic look centered around Unknown Factory jeans and chunky black Pour La Victoire heels, to a single party-ready piece: a strapless Juicy Couture LBD. Fun dresses by Rachel Pally and Elie Tahari present a contrast to the darker-hued pieces that make up a majority of the album, proving that winter doesn't mean black and charcoal and black and charcoal alone.

The next four looks are my favorites of the group. While they may not be the most daring or innovative, they sum up what winter means for me: layers, darks and consistency in its finest form.


Here's to you, fashion. Cheers.
