Our Editors' November Must Haves Are the Holiday Gifts You'll Want to Give Yourself

Every editorial product is independently selected by our editors. If you buy something through our links, we may earn commission.

Thanks to the fresh Fall air and the promise of Thanksgiving dinner ahead, we'll gladly welcome November — and its cold-weather dress code. Our editors have stalked showrooms and lookbooks since last season waiting for the change of season to ramp up Winter — and holiday — shopping. Happily it's finally here, and we know exactly what we want this month.

Without hesitation, our editors zeroed in on sneakers, day dresses, party tops (yes, they're still a thing), and combat boots to make the official switch from "is it Fall yet?" to "full-on pumpkin-everything season." And while we're sure you could peruse this list to find a few gift picks for friends, we highly recommend shopping for yourself while you're at it. Read on for everything our editors — and friend, designer Misha Nonoo — are shopping this month.

J.Crew Hoot Cold-Shoulder Ruffled Cotton-Poplin Top

J.Crew Hoot Cold-Shoulder Ruffled Cotton-Poplin Top

"I love 'holiday' tops that aren't overtly obvious and are versatile enough to wear year-round (aka: no bright red and green). This J.Crew Hoot Cold-Shoulder Ruffled Cotton-Poplin Top ($70) has the sweet details I crave, minus the cheese factor." — Hannah Weil McKinley, director, Fashion and Shop

Edie Parker Phone Case

Edie Parker Phone Case

"I can't get enough of personalization and monograms, especially on accessories I carry everywhere, like my phone. This Edie Parker Case ($45) also has a cool textured marbled finish." — Dana Avidan Cohn, executive style director

WKNDLA Coba Mobile Earrings

WKNDLA Coba Mobile Earrings

"Lately, I've been getting more and more inventive with my earring look, mostly forgetting about necklaces and rings in the name of some seriously artsy chandeliers and hoops. These WKNDLA Coba Mobile Earrings ($240) are handmade in LA from 14k gold — I'd certainly treasure them." — Sarah Wasilak, editor, Fashion

Storets Britney Lace Dress With Knitted Vest

Storets Britney Lace Dress With Knitted Vest

"What really strikes me about this fresh Storets Britney Lace Dress With Knitted Vest ($74)? You can wear it with or without the knit vest, so you're basically getting two looks for the price of one. This screams 'Thanksgiving dinner' to me." — SW

Misha Nonoo Octavia Shirt

Misha Nonoo Octavia Shirt

"This is not your average button down. I just released the Octavia Shirt ($250) on mishanonoo.com and I cannot tell you how many compliments I've gotten whenever I wear it." — Misha Nonoo, designer

Marissa Webb Maxwell Leather Pant

Marissa Webb Maxwell Leather Pant

"I love that this Marissa Webb Maxwell Leather Pant ($700) feels almost like sweatpants but looks entirely more put-together. Perfect for Thanksgiving, holiday dinners, and beyond." — HWM

Sandy Liang Champ Top

Sandy Liang Champ Top

For the holidays, I'm keeping an eye out for a statement top that's also easy to wear with jeans. Enter this Sandy Liang sequined number ($334) with delicate gingham-printed straps. It gives the right amount of glitz and glam for all your parties." — Marina Liao, assistant editor, Fashion

CALPAK Astyll Midnight Marble 2-Piece Luggage Set

CALPAK Astyll Midnight Marble 2-Piece Luggage Set

"The more I travel, the more I think about how to pack a sensible suitcase filled with solely essentials. A hard-top case like the CALPAK Marble 2-Piece Set ($265) would restrict me to my basics, and I could be sure that my carry-on would fit in the overhead compartment. Of course, I'd use the larger trunk for longer trips too." — SW

Sea Cable-Knit Sweater

Sea Cable-Knit Sweater

"I may be spill-prone, but that won't stop me from indulging in a little Winter white, like this Sea Cable-Knit Sweater ($390). The silhouette is just slightly updated with feminine details to save you from you sweater-and-jeans outfit boredom." — HWM

"This adorable bag ($1,390) is my favorite color of red. It caught my attention immediately." — MN

Adidas NMD Primeknit Sneakers

Adidas NMD Primeknit Sneakers

The Arrivals Moya III Shearling Jacket

The Arrivals Moya III Shearling Jacket

"Like most women, I have an affinity for leather jackets, but this The Arrivals Moya III Shearling Jacket ($1,095) is different. This jacket features a shearling interior, which will keep me nice and toasty when the weather takes a turn for the worse." — Nikita Ramsinghani, assistant editor, Fashion

Violet Gray Luxury Face Oil

Violet Gray Luxury Face Oil

"With Winter on the way, I’m already thinking about how to keep my skin hydrated. Many of my friends have been raving about Vintner's Daughter Serum ($170) so I'm keen to try it." — MN

Catbird Ballerina Earrings

Catbird Ballerina Earrings

"While hoops have been all the rage the past couple of seasons, I've found myself being slightly over the trend. These Catbird Ballerina 14-Karat Gold Earrings ($170) come with a cool chain detail and add just the right amount of edge to any look." — NR

AllSaints Marissa Dress

AllSaints Marissa Dress

"I believe that every woman needs a romantic, sheer dress for the Fall, and this AllSaints Marissa Maize Dress ($395) fits the bill perfectly with its ruffle trim and floral pattern." — NR

Louis Vuitton Laureate Platform Desert Boot

Louis Vuitton Laureate Platform Desert Boot

"I'm not a fan of a shoe with a high heel. Instead, I turn to something sturdy and practical. I loved the Louis Vuitton campaign that highlighted this series of combat boots, and the Laureate Desert Boots ($1,210) with the logo tongue flash just enough of the signature LV print for me." — SW

Storets Lyn Twist Sleeves Pullover

Storets Lyn Twist Sleeves Pullover

"Every Fall, I find myself getting bored with my sweater rotation. Rather than stocking up on the basics, I decided it's time to switch things up with this gorgeous Storets Lyn Twist Sleeves Pullover ($62)." — NR

BaubleBar Corazon Everyday Fine Earrings

BaubleBar Corazon Everyday Fine Earrings

"As much as I love a good piece of statement jewelry, I always gravitate toward delicate, everyday pieces like these BaubleBar heart-shaped earrings ($62). The brand came out with a line of fine jewelry, and I'm completely enamored by the minimalist feel." — ML

Rocio Twiggy Bag

Rocio Twiggy Bag

"As soon as I laid eyes on the Rocio Twiggy Bag ($1,150), I wanted to carry no other purse. I love the sleek finish of the polished wood. In my mind, this is the cool-weather alternative to the basket bag — though you can still wear those through the Fall too, if you please." — SW

Converse One Star x Golf le Fleur Sneakers

Converse One Star x Golf le Fleur Sneakers

"I'm pretty sure that my obsession with Tyler, the Creator reached an all-new high the minute I laid eyes on the second drop of his Converse collaboration. Needless to say, I will be getting both myself and my boyfriend a pair of these Converse One Star x Golf le Fleur Sneakers ($100)." — NR

Parisa Wang Addicted Backpack
