Ask any fashion person what he or she is shopping and, well, you’d better carve out a few hours to listen. As members of that style crew, our biggest highs come from the release of new collections and collaborations, and we’ll tell anyone who cares just a little (or simply pretends to) about the buys we have our eyes on — even if the list is endless.

Curious about what the fashion set is scoping out right now? We tapped 13 fellow editors, designers, stylists, and bloggers — including Rachel Zoe, Aimee Song, and Rachel Comey — to spill what they’re looking to pick up this season. But, since there are only so many hours in the day, we tasked them with whittling down their list of must-haves to just one item. Yes,one. No easy feat for these folks, so you know the pieces ahead are worth it.
