The editors here at Who What Wear UK see thousands of pieces every day in order to bring you the best of everything, whether that's camel coats, brown boots or new Zara arrivals. But what are the pieces that we have added to our own wardrobes this season? I asked my colleagues in London, New York and Los Angeles to share the pieces they've bought over the past few months. There are some themes, such as leopard print, ankle boots, cardigans and mini bags; however, each shopping list shows a different approach to the new season. Some of us have gone all-out on the trends, while others have gone for classic autumnal buys. Keep scrolling to see the pieces our team have actually bought.
Hannah Almassi, Editorial Director, Who What Wear UK
Hannah Almassi, Who What Wear UK's editorial director, invested in a Céline alphabet necklace in August (now sold out). This season, she's bought a paisley Topshop midi skirt, a pair of Doc Martins and a clever zebra print layering piece. She's tapped into the new trends but bought pieces that are equally timeless.
Emma Spedding, Deputy Editor, Who What Wear UK
My birthday is in September, so I asked for an & Other Stories tan wool blazer with boxy shoulders (aka the perfect coat for autumn). The two trend-led pieces I have bought for the season are a bright pink leopard-print dress from Ghost and Ganni's Wild West-inspired shirt.
Isabel invested in basics this month, and has bought a couple of classic black shirts from Uniqlo and a pair of jeans from Arket. She's tried this year to make more considered purchases, so her new-season treat was a pearl necklace from Alighieri.
Joy Montgomery, Acting Assistant Editor, Who What Wear UK
This season Joy has invested in elevated basics—think snake print ankle boots, pearl hair slides and leather trousers—alongside timeless wardrobe pieces, such as a Gap roll-neck jumper and suede crossbody bag.
Nicole Akhtarzad, Market Editor, Who What Wear
Nicole Akhtarzad, a New York–based editor from our U.S. site, has a strictly monochrome shopping basket this autumn. She's bought a white rain jacket, black strappy stilettos and a black Prada belt bag.
Maxine is loving everything the high street has to offer this season, particularly when it comes to accessories. From Topshop's dainty pearl bag to Zara's Victoriana lace-up boots, these are all pieces that could easily be mistaken for their designer dopplegangers.
Kristen Nichols, Fashion Editor, Who What Wear
Kristen is based in our L.A. office, and she says leopard is the print she can't get enough of. This season, she's bought a pair of Paige animal-print jeans. She sold a '90s Louis Vuitton monogram bag and has since regretted it, so she's bought a bag in a similar shape from By Far's first handbag collection.
