After years of working in the fashion industry, you may think that we, as fashion editors, would be the ones buying into trends more than anyone. Although, of course, we can all be suckers for fair-weather cult buys now and then, most of my colleagues and peers in the industry have actually spent their years working in fashion curating the perfect selection of classics and can mainly be found wearing the same pair of jeans, cashmere jumper, silk shirts, chic suit and trench coat in some variation, on repeat. At fashion week, you can usually spot the seasoned editors a mile away, as they’ll be the ones wearing simple white trainers and a great classic coat.
Over the years, we’ve seen which items come and go and therefore have a great knowledge base for which items you’ll wear again and again forever. These are the pieces to invest in. Of course, there should be room in any closet for a bright pink, feathered dress if that’s your thing, but when it comes to your capsule everyday wardrobe, you’ll want items that never go out of style.
When it comes to shopping for these elevated basics, one of our favourite go-to’s here at Who What Wear UK is Mytheresa. The multi-brand site has, under the buying directorship of fashion veteran and street style star Tiffany Hsu, one of the chicest edits around and a covetable selection of contemporary and luxury brands on offer, making it the perfect place to find your capsule wardrobe heroes. Plus, from today until 13 April, Mytheresa is offering 15% off selected full-price items with the code GIFT15, so if you’ve had your eye on anything, now’s the time to invest.
