Power Pieces to Invest In This Season

What is it exactly do we mean when we talk about power pieces? Well to me, a power piece is a statement maker and has a certain outfit making quality. It is that one thing that takes your look to the next level and makes it current and off-the-moment. The beautiful thing about power pieces is that every season offers a slew of them and you can definitely find something that fits with your sartorial esthetic and style.

As far as power pieces are concerned, I tend to lean towards accessories. A statement shoe or bag can instantly take a look to the next level, not to mention the fact that an accessory has versatility that items of clothing rarely do. I mean, I wear my favorite shoes and bags all season long with practically everything which is one of the biggest reasons I tend to invest in those pieces.

This season, one of my favorite power piece/must have trends are western boots and the Isabel Marant pair I am sporting in today’s post is the newest addition and current favorite. Love them because they add that perfect touch of drama to my beloved basics but also because they never fail to make an outfit look a little more “now”! So good with skirts and dresses, I love them with minis but also with anything in midi length when they just peak out slightly. Another reason why I’m obsessed is because though I am certainly able to wear them now, I can easily incorporate them into my cold-weather wardrobe by pairing them with trenches and oversized slouchy coats.

Got them on a recent trip to Neiman Marcus, along with the Sea by Chloe turtleneck and Rag & Bone belt bag, I am wearing in today’s post. Neiman Marcus has always been one of my favorite places to shop because I can always find all my favorite premium and contemporary designers in one place. As much as I like shopping I rarely have the time to search for things, which is why I appreciate the convenience of being able to shop from a single place, get inspiration, and make mental notes of things I may get in the future. Currently the list of mental notes is getting rather lengthy, but then this season offers such a wonderful selection of power pieces and must-haves it’s hard to stick to just a single one! I mean hello 80’s, animal-print accessories and combat boots!

What about you guys, what are some of the power pieces you’re accepted for at the moment?

Special thank you to ShopStyle for partnering with me on this post.
