As much as everyone's eagerly awaiting to the new year, it's worth looking back at 2018 and all it brought (both good and bad). And while you and your bank account may disagree on which category it falls under, it's likely you shopped a lot of stylish picks this year to fill your closet with fashion-forward pieces you relied on month after month. But did you happen to pick up any of 2018's most popular Shopbop products during your shopping sprees? If not, there's still time — and they're items so classic you'll keep using them in the coming year.
Considering Shopbop's well-earned status as a go-to retailer for of-the-moment fashion finds, you're far from alone if you count it as one of your first stops when shopping for trend pieces and must-have basics alike. The style set flocks to the store's on-point offerings all year round — especially during its epic sales — and while it's unlikely for anyone to leave the site without placing several pieces into their shopping carts, there are a few items that seemed to make it more often than the rest.
To find out which chic pieces made the cut, The Zoe Report asked Shopbop's Fashion Director, Caroline Maguire, to fill everyone in on the picks that fashion lovers couldn't go without in 2018. And, no surprise, they're so good that if you don't have them already, you'll want to grab them up STAT.
Because no stylish woman's closet is complete without (several) pairs of go-to denim, it's not shocking that one of the retailer's most popular pieces this year was a versatile jean that pairs perfectly with, well, everything. According to Maguire, AGOLDE's Pinch Waist High Rise Jeans, $178, are a crowd pleaser thanks to their high waist, tapered leg, and a length that hits just above the ankle — basically the denim of fashion girls' dreams.
Los Angeles-based Anine Bing's incredibly cool tees also make the list. "All of the Anine Bing tees fly off the site. The styles are perfect for the office to dinner," Maguire told The Zoe Report, "Made from a brushed cotton, they’re as comfortable as they are cool." Scoop one up the next chance you get, like this $98 one perhaps, to style with your favorite boyfriend blazer, relaxed denim, and statement shoes à la Bing.
Shopbop's fans didn't forget to stock up on unique, trend-forward accessories during 2018 — in fact, they went all-in on bags from cult-fave brand Staud. "Our customer comes to us for the new brands and the next trends. The Fall and Winter bag collections from Staud are just that," said Maguire. As for which styles keep selling fast? "Staud’s Shirley Bag and the Moreau Bag are customer favorites!"
Despite 2018 quickly coming to a close, there's still time to shop some of the year's most noteworthy pieces that fashion girls have been relying on. And since they're completely classic items that show no signs of going out of style, they're purchases you practically need to make for a stylish start to 2019.
