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 many of us are having a shift in mindset and starting to transition into our autumn and winter wardrobes. For autumn, I'm after a trench coat with checked detailing by new Brit label Palones, a fleece (surprising, I know) and a pair of chunky boots. I couldn't possibly buy all the jackets and boots I'm saving to wish lists, so as they say, sharing is caring.
