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.
