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 about party season as well as 2020, and I’ve got a friend’s wedding coming up too. I plan on buying something fancy, but it also has to be a piece I’ll still want to wear after, which is why I’ve included a versatile (but party-ready) blouse from Topshop. As for more staple pieces, as usual I'm on the hunt for great knitwear but also boots that will last the whole winter and well into spring. Essentially, I’m all about the basics this month with a few sparkly bits thrown in for good measure. Keep scrolling for what I'm buying.
This bag has a longer strap for when you want to wear it across your body, and then it can be tucked in so you can wear it as a clutch for party season. It also holds way more than you'd think (i.e., it fits a phone, keys, money and at least three items of makeup).
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.
