Knowing what to buy can be difficult. With hundreds of brands each offering up hundreds of new-in pieces—often on a weekly basis—deciding what to invest in can be daunting at best. That, however, is where we come in.
It's the Who What Wear UK team's job to scour the web and stores to find the very best pieces on offer—it's a role we take seriously and also reflects what we ourselves choose to buy. The same goes for our influencer friends. With gifts arriving on their doorsteps in droves, it makes the pieces they decide to spend their money on all the more special. As such, we decided to share the pieces we're currently coveting with you to give you an insight into what we—the people who look at clothes for a living—have on our wish lists.
Although there are plenty of designer treats we've got our eye on, we're all in agreement that the high-street is looking pretty exceptional right now. So we decided to share with you, dear readers, our high-street shopping hit lists.
I asked fellow members of the Who What Wear UK team, as well as some of my favourite influencers, to tell me the five pieces they intend on buying from the high street. As well as my own picks, you'll find their items below.
Our personal styles couldn't be more different, but there are common traits woven between our edits. For one, the colour palette remains largely neutral. Shearling trims also evident throughout, as is fringed hemming. The proof, they say, is in the punch; so keep scrolling to see seven fashion girls' high-street wish lists for autumn 2019.
HANNAH ALMASSI, WHO WHAT WEAR UK EDITORIAL DIRECTOR
"I tried these on back in January of this year. I didn't buy them and haven't managed to get them out of my head ever since. I'm not really one for fitted trousers or jeans or leathers (I never felt I had very good legs for any of these options), but these are surprisingly good on a curvier figure as they do nip in at the waist but still have enough room in the hips/thighs. Best worn with cropped/snug knits and shirts to outline my hourglass figure."
"I'm so into the chic shape of these I've considered getting them in the black, cream and red colourways! When you find a pair of boots that are comfortable, timeless and good quality, it's always worth buying multiples—trust me.''
"I'd always found trench coats classic, but let's face it, they're not the most exciting purchase. However, with its tartan trim, elongated ties and oversized silhouette, this trench is in a league all its own."
Satin is a staple part of my wardrobe, though sometimes it can prove too fancy for the occasion. This blouse is the answer to this problem. I'll be wearing it with straight-leg jeans, mules and a red lip for the perfect high/low balance.
