10 New-In Autumn Buys I Really Love This Week

Fashion editor shopping picks for Summer


Emma Spedding for Who What Wear

Emma wears the Free People leather trousers from this week's shopping picks, with a Shrimps cardigan and Essen pumps.

As an editor at Who What Wear, I typically spend a lot of time looking at new-in products, and so every week, I update this story with the pieces that have caught my eye and that really stand out. The weather recently has seen us all return to our knitwear and raincoats, and so I've started compiling my autumn wish list. Below, I've included some of the chicest autumn-ready items I've seen this year, including a beautiful printed dress, chunky pair of boots and a Simone Rocha dress I've been dreaming about for years. 

So whether you're looking to buy, browse or discover something new, keep scrolling for pieces I love and think are worth investing in, from the high street to designer labels. 

This Week's Shopping Picks

I included the top version of this a few weeks ago, but had to feature this. 

This is part of Jessie Bush's third and final collaboration with Kitri, and is bound to sell out as soon as it launches, so is worth signing up to the waiting list. 

Top tip—Arket always creates the best boots.

Lee Mathews always creates the most beautiful dresses. 

Ghost has just launched activewear, and it's seriously good.
