Most of the time, what the fashion world crowns an It piece and what we actually want to own are two very different things. As an editor for digital fashion, I constantly search the Internet to uncover these lively It pieces, and I became aware of the latest articles in order to achieve cult status. (I even created a column to tell you all about it every month.) What I've learned is that these "famous" items are usually not the most portable– Everything for the gram, you know?
That's why I recently took on the task of personally testing some of the most famous fashion items and giving them my brutally honest rating. Would these Bottega Veneta sandals be an easy walk? Would these Gucci sunglasses look too over the top? I went to some retailers like Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue to look for those popular garments that I had seen in abundance in street style galleries and Instagram feeds, and after I brought a lot of options into my dressing rooms and the pictures had shot to prove it. I can honestly tell you which articles lived up to their hype and which simply weren't translated so well personally.
From the sandals that every fashion man apparently has to several Insta-famous dresses, scroll down to see the dressing rooms of what I've tried and find out which parts are 100% worth it.
