But for now, revisit—or relive—some of the top trends of 2017.

You can never have enough leggings, which seems especially true when it comes to the versatile black edition. These LBLs (little black leggings) on sale at the often-pricey Bandier were a mega hit.

Knowing that hundreds (or thousands) of people endorse your purchase can help you avoid buyer’s remorse, but it’s also an easy way to tell which products are about to become classics.
