The 9 New-In Pieces I'm Adding to My Wish List This Week

What to Buy Now is a concise weekly edit of the items I really love, including pieces from the high street, designer labels, vintage gems you can buy online and charity-shop treasures. I'm constantly scanning the most stylish online stores, so you can feel safe knowing that you won't miss a thing.

I know that your fashion requirements can vary massively from season to season, whether you're looking for an immaculately tailored staple, an affordable sundress or the perfect pair of shoes. I'll make sure everything I include in this edit will look just as fresh in a year's time as it does now.

Of course, I'll also bring you those pieces that simply set your heart racing in a way that only fashion can. This week's highlights include plenty of wardrobe gems, from the perfect summer wedding-guest dress to the high-street bag that looks designer. So scroll down to shop the buys on my wish list this week. You know what to do.

A timeless, strappy sandal that makes every outfit look that much more polished. 

We're still in the throes of summer wedding season, and this is the dress to wear when celebrating your nearest and dearest. 

This is easily the most expensive-looking bag on the high street right now. 

I can picture this dramatic maxi at a dinner party, a birthday party, over drinks—in fact, any event where you want to look and feel your best. 

I'm quite obsessed with striped trousers. It might be the leg-lengthening optical illusion they create or just the fact that a fine line always looks sharp.

If you haven't already invested in a shirt and shorts co-ord, make this Frankie Shop version your investment. It comes influencer-approved. 

The cute bow detail makes this plan white shirt something truly special. 

I have been known to consider leopard print a neutral (trust me, it does go with anything), and perhaps it's time to add tiger to the list too. 


Just when you thought this seersucker summer dress couldn't get any more romantic, check out the open-back detail. 

I'm fully committing to shorts season, especially with a light cotton pair. My favourite way to wear them? With a matching shirt as part of an easy-to-throw-on co-ord.

And speaking of summer dresses, this ruffled cotton number from Reformation is destined to be a best seller. 

While I can always depend on linen and prefer a boxy-cut short-sleeve shirt, my favourite thing about the Tejal Shirt is the colour.

For anyone still looking for the perfect summer wedding-guest dress, your search is over. The romantic colour, the puff sleeves, the subtle cut-out… Be still my beating heart.

From the moment I heard the announcement, I knew the Manolo Blahnik x Birkenstock collaboration would be an instant sell-out. I wasn't able to get my hands on the first bejewelled velvet sandals, so this time around, I'm joining the queue for the PVC Arizonas. Just imagine them by the pool…

I can't wait to wear this on holiday with my favourite summer dress and stacked with plenty of fine chain pendants. 

Just when I thought I was ready to retire my extensive collection of blazers until autumn, this came along to change my mind. The relaxed fit means I can wear it over a light dress in summer and over a jumper when it gets cooler.

You deserve comfy underwear that doesn't chafe or dig in, but you needn't compromise on pretty, delicate designs to get a good fit.  

It's almost impossible to choose a favourite from Who What Wear UK's first clothing collection, Drop 01, but the Hannah Dress just might take the crown. Designed by our editors and readers, each piece is made after the order is placed to reduce waste and support a more sustainable way to shop. 

If you reliably live in linen all summer, this new shape is a slouchier wide leg that should be on your radar.  

Not brand-new but notable nonetheless, these elegant gladiators have been on my wish list for a while now, and with the summer sun pouring in, there's no time like the present. 

Hunza G fans, rejoice! There is now an ideal accompaniment to your chic swimwear: the handcrafted Crinkle Hoops, designed in collaboration with demi-fine jewellery brand Otiumberg. I'm ready to trade in my old, everyday hoops. 

These cool sunglasses look far more expensive than their high-street price tag. 

A tiered maxi dress with ruffles and a bow? I'm sold. The perfect heatwave-proof, holiday-ready dress if ever I've seen one.

I can't be the only person who needs to carry their entire life in their handbag. I might consistently forget my keys, but a tote this roomy is big enough for a change of shoes, several perfumes and likely a snack or two, so at least my commute is covered. 

Okay, they might technically be pyjamas, but Tekla's soft and breathable cotton pieces are perfect for summer. And honestly, a collaboration this cool deserves to be seen outside of the bedroom. 

It is almost impossible to choose my favourite pair from this stylish collaboration. (I urge you to see the rest of the capsule exclusively at Browns Fashion.) For now, I'll happily settle with these swoon-worthy satin mules. 

I'm still living in waistcoats and wide-leg trousers, and this one (and the accompanying matching suit) is a Bianca Jagger dream. 

All of the appeal of the classic Breton top with a contemporary update. 

Carrie Bradshaw reignited a love for this dress that we were entirely unprepared for. But now that the iconic dress is getting it's recognition, it's worth trying to snap up one of these investment dresses before they sell out again.  

Heavenly London specialises in the best-looking demi-fine jewellery and imitation diamonds on the market, so you can shop beautifully and consciously. This statement necklace is top of my list for party season. 

A buttery-soft mini hobo bag that can be easily dressed up or down. 

Fans of H&M's impeccable trousers will love this linen-blend pair. A little looser than a straight leg but narrower than a wide leg, they make the perfect relaxed fit. 

And speaking of linen, when you want to dress up but stay cool, I may have just found the summer party dress. 

Because everything looks better through Loveshackfancy's rose-tinted glasses. 

The full A-line skirt, the nipped-in waist, and the sweetheart neckline make this Staud number feel like a vintage find. The perfect cotton summer dress.  

Refresh your jewellery box with a contemporary take on the traditional St. Christopher in eye-catching natural turquoise and recycled gold.  

Frankly, any piece from Nana Acheampong's colourful vacation edit for Boux Avenue is guaranteed to get you into holiday mode. Race you to the beach! 

Be it a top, a dress or swimwear, I'm asymmetrically inclined, and this is double-layered and seamless for the smoothest possible fit. 

I can't stop thinking about the bows on this dress, and the fact that it's entirely backless only adds to its charm. 

By now, you're probably already familiar with E.L.V.'s sculpting jeans made from repurposed denim (and if you haven't tried a pair, I urge you to), but equally as good is the new collection of zero-waste cotton shirts and skirts. Each piece is entirely unique and made to order.

A Grecian-inspired sandal never gets old, especially with an up-to-date square toe. 

Dress down the formality of a tweed jacket with a white tee and jeans.

When it comes to sunglasses, the brighter the better. 

I can't stop thinking about this chic shade of pistachio green. 

This new-season cotton shirt is nailing the boyfriend fit. And of course, it's in the brand's signature stripes. 

My devotion to skinny jeans has long since passed. The relaxed straight leg is a much chicer silhouette.

It might be a swimsuit, but I'll be wearing this with jeans and Birkenstocks all summer.

It doesn't get easier (or more comfortable) than a pair of linen shorts with a relaxed waistband.

After Kendall Jenner made the last Hockney dress a viral hit, the new Lakeside Hockney is sure to be a best seller.

The holiday countdown has begun, and this tote is the perfect bag for a beach day or exploring the city. Pair it with a white linen dress. 

A wearable, laid-back mule with luxe polish.

More is more when it comes to layering jewellery, and this necklace is three expensive-looking pieces for the price of one.
