Our "favorite" parts of magazines are the "Buy or Toss" section. You know the one - a chart or list, where the magazine decrees army blazers "in" (so Balenciaga right now), or army blazers "out" (so Victor and Rolf from 2 years ago). But any fashion maven will tell you it's the mash of current and past seasons that makes style interesting. So why the constant spreads telling us what to "buy or toss" for the upcoming season? Loads of items on September's British Vogue "Keep or Delete?" page have woven in and out of fashion for decades, never truly losing steam. They don't like leggings - we've seen them on half the runways. They don't like ballet flats - we'll never surrender our Repettos. And they don't like skinny jeans, which are great layering pieces for fall. Should magazines urge you to toss these fashion fixtures? Or should they focus on highlighting trends that actually are seasonal, not timeless. We understand why magazines want us to put aside our summer neon and white shoes / skirts / pants - those only work on vacation. But can you really edit your closet based on someone else's list? --SABRINA BACON
