Monikh will likely need no introduction to loyal Who What Wear readers, as she has been a shopping columnist for us for several years and every month shares her must-have buys via her column, Trust Monikh. The London-based styling and shopping guru has impressive fashion knowledge, however, her philosophy (much like ours here at Who What Wear) is all about making smart investments that sit within your own personal style. She will reference trends, but never follows them, and instead is all about curating a wardrobe that will last beyond a season or two.
When it comes to her own wardrobe, you only need a quick scroll of her Instagram feed to realise that she has nailed her capsule wardrobe and relies on a roster of hardworking staples. "Firstly figure out what your style is," says Monikh about creating a capsule wardrobe. "Then work out what the building blocks to that are. For me I’m a minimalist, so I know that my wardrobe needs a good black coat, white T-shirt, blue shirts, and perfectly tailored jeans. These are the pieces that will become the base to most of my looks. I love a dress, so over the last few years I have invested in a few great styles that I wear year after year, saving money in the long run. Cost per wear is everything!"
Below you'll find some of the dresses she wears the most, including long-sleeve midis, little black dresses and beautifully printed summer frocks. Keep scrolling to see and shop the 12 items Monikh always wears.
