Click through to discover 2013's 13 best dream designer items—and to shop them, too!
Saint Laurent Star Cardigan
Arguably the most wearable and recognizable piece from Hedi Slimane’s grunge-inspired Fall 2013 collection for Saint Laurent, this $1,290 cardigan quickly sold out across the country—but not before popping up on the shoulders of stars like Katie Holmes and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Valentino Lace Dress
It’s interesting to note that Valentino’s tough Rockstud shoes and bags (first introduced in 2010) are the brand’s most popular accessories, while the delicate, stunningly crafted lace dress is quickly becoming the house’s MVP in the ready-to-wear department. All about that balance. Click through to shop the look.
Givenchy Bambi Sweatshirt
It’s not often that a cartoon deer rules fashion week, but that’s exactly what happened when Riccardo Tisci sent Bambi-emblazoned sweatshirts down the Givenchy runway earlier this year. Click through to shop the look.
Louis Vuitton Checkerboard Anything
After checkered dresses and separate in shades ranging from canary yellow to pale mocha hit the Spring 2013 Vuitton runway, everyone from Kate Upton to Kerry Washington rushed to get a piece of her own. Click through to shop the look.
Lanvin Statement Necklace
We read you loud and clear, Alber! Click through to shop the look.
3.1 Phillip Lim Over-the-Knee Boots
Thigh-high boots in general were huge this year, but no one pair made quite as much of a splash as Mr. Lim’s. If you know where to look, you can still find pairs in very select sizes online—perhaps even on sale! Click through to shop the look.
Fendi Buggies
These three-figure-priced keychains sure aren’t the thriftiest way to add pizzazz to your handbag—but boy oh boy, are they adorable. Click through to shop the look.
Carven Pink Coat
We doubt we need to restate the fact that pink is the official outerwear color of 2013—and Carven’s Guillaume Henry is arguably the guy who started it all. Click through to shop the look.
Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats
Alexa Chung, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Beyoncé…what A-lister didn’t slip on a pair of these irresistible feline flats (or heels—the style comes is two heights!) this past year?! Click through to shop the look.
Alaïa Lace-Up Heels
Corset-wearing might be a lost art (unless you’re Dita Von Teese)—but in 2013, corseted stilettos were the biggest thing in footwear. Carine Roitfeld almost single-handedly launched the trend by sporting Alaïa’s lace-ups throughout fashion month; street style stars like Taylor Tomasi Hill, Leandra Medine and more followed suit. Before long, brands like Aquazzura, Schutz and Zara were offering up their own excellent takes on the corseted heel. Click through to shop the look.
Céline Fur Footwear
When Phoebe Philo sent fur-lined Birkenstocks down the runway, a new “ugly shoe” trend was born. Miley Cyrus loved her gem-encrusted ones so much, she wore them to death (good thing Kanye West was there to buy her five more pairs). Click through to shop the look.
Chanel Hula Hoop Bag
Ah yes, the bag that launched a thousand Instagrams. Karl Lagerfeld might’ve intended it to be a runway prop, but before long, this larger-than-life Spring 2013 accessory popped up at fashion week, in glossy magazine spreads and—fortunately—in a more wearable, shrunken version at Chanel boutiques. Click through to shop the look.
Dior Mise en Dior earrings
2013 was arguably the year of the reinvented pearl. Not only did the precious stones pop up as embellishment on clothing, but also in unconventional jewelry—like these stunning double-sided pearl earrings, which quickly became a hit amongst models, editors and celebs alike.
