Trust Me—Buy Any of These 21 Things

As editors of Who What Wear, we like to tell you about the chicest trends around and the kind of pieces that are actually worth investing in. While we’re always writing with you and ourselves in mind (it would be pointless if we chose pieces that we didn’t like, after all), this column is about the items I personally want to buy this month. As a commuter and a mum of a toddler, this means that I need pieces that wash well, don’t crease too much and look smart but also work for the weekend. I’m also super mindful about the environment and want to ensure that anything I buy is a forever purchase as well as something that fits seamlessly into my existing wardrobe.

This month, I’m thinking ahead to the colder weather. So jumpers, cardigans, jackets, coats and boots feature heavily on my wish list. But there are other items that I just simply adore and know I’d wear whatever the temperature is doing. For example, there’s a khaki Isabel Marant jumpsuit I’ll being saving up for that I can genuinely see being in my wardrobe forever.

Then there’s a pair of velvet Prada sandals that I’m desperate to wear over autumn and winter (for many years to come) with party dresses. But there are also classic items that I always need such as Breton T-shirts and basic white long-sleeved tops that are essential for layering as the weather gets colder. Keep scrolling for the rest of my picks this month.

Isabel Marant creates a version of this jumper every season, and the reason I love it is because it’s simple. It’s a classic knit, yet the tiny style tweak of slightly exaggerated shoulders gives it a more directional edge.

The most flattering and affordable blazer around. 

I’ve been hunting for a great pair of blue jeans and think I’ve just found them. These also come recommended by so many people I know that I’ve finally decided to make the purchase. 

Croc effect makes everything look more expensive. This chic handbag is one I’ve had my eye on for a while. 

A great alternative to open-toe mules. 

I can’t tell you how much I love this dress brand. If you hate floral prints, I bet you won’t after looking at the pieces from Bernadette.

Leather shirts are big this season, but Nanunshka only opts for vegan leather, so it’s a great nod to sustainability. 

A great smart skirt that will be great for meetings as well as evenings out. 

To wear with jeans, skirts, dresses or trousers. Basically everything. 

Not the most obvious choice when it comes to Céline bags, but that’s precisely why I love it. 

There’s nothing more fabulous than a leopard-print coat, and this one is so affordable. I can’t wait to wear this with the blue jeans above. 

Darker floral dresses are big for autumn/winter 2019. This one ticks that box as well as looking vintage too. 

This is how I like to invest in a trend that might not be around for more than two seasons: Go for something that hints at it so you can wear it for as long as possible. 

New pyjamas in the autumn are exactly what everyone needs as the nights get longer. 

The ultimate utilitarian jumpsuit that I can’t stop thinking about. 

These are so fabulous and ideal for keeping out the autumn sun. I also love the vintage style of them. 

I’ve finally given in and decided I need a gold chain choker in my life. 

A Breton top is never a bad investment. 

Cropped cardigans are so flattering when worn with high-waisted trousers.
