It's that time of year when you could legitimately put the professions "questionable dancer" and "karaoke singer" on your CV. Make no mistake—party season is in full swing, and whether you've got an upcoming work bash, a soirée with friends, or you're already planning your NYE outfit, chances are you'll be tempted to add a few new pieces to your after-dark repertoire.
By now, however, you should know that we like to do things a little differently at Who What Wear. You'll find no encouragement to spend frivolously—instead, we want you to think cleverly about every purchase you make, and that includes your party pieces. So we set out on a quest to find party clothes that work well beyond January 1st—items that have eternal and versatile appeal; that you'll find any excuse to wear throughout 2022. Fortunately, we didn't have to look far, as one brand has honed the ultimate wear-again partywear collection for us.
COURTESY OF WHISTLES
Whistles is always our first port of call when we're looking to invest in something suitably stylish and modern, and we had a feeling its latest wares wouldn't let us down. Clearly, Whistles understood the assignment—we're here to party, but we want to be comfortable doing it. Cue an array of easy-to-wear looks that strike the perfect high-low outfit balance, with each piece boasting that acclaimed Whistles quality. Think slip dresses worn with shearling teddy coats, sequins juxtaposed by oversized knitwear, slouchy but no-less sleek tailoring, and a trending gilet thrown in for good fashionable measure. These chic ensembles feel anything but overdone and are the sort of thing you'll revert back to time and time again. Just as it should be.
We don't know about you, but we're ready to party with a capital P. So scroll on to see the six Whistles party looks we can't wait to wear, then shop the pieces you need to re-create them for yourself.
