Trust Me—Buy These 20 Things

Working at Who What Wear UK requires spending a lot of time browsing new-in sections, meaning our personal shopping lists are rather extensive. I'm a relatively safe dresser and avoid anything too loud or likely to date, so I tend to favour classic tailoring, pretty midi dresses and blouses worn with jeans.

So what's caught my eye this month? This is the month where we go into full winter mode and start living in coats, jumpers and boots. For winter, I'm after a leather shirt and pair of leather trousers, a pair of chunky boots and a party blouse I can wear throughout December. I couldn't possibly buy all the jackets and boots I'm saving to wish lists, so as they say, sharing is caring.
