At Who What Wear, we firmly believe that every item you buy should be viewed as an investment. It should be something that you love and that excites you, that you return to time and time again because of the joy it brings. We also firmly believe that that statement doesn’t just apply to designer pieces. Thanks to the high-street, there are plenty of elevated (and affordable) staples out there that are worthy of a place in your wardrobe.
There are some hight-street brands that continue to impress us season after season—& Other Stories, COS and Zara to name a few—and each serve a different purpose. Zara is all about the trend-led pieces mixed with sleek, tailored separates, as well as an ample offering of insanely good coats, shoes and earrings. COS is my go-to for when I need a confidence boost. Beautiful quality but at a reasonable price point, its new-ins are always effortlessly chic and easy to wear. Last but not least is & Other Stories, who rule on knitwear and tailoring especially; the striped half-zips and wool oversized blazers are staples in every Who What Wear editor’s autumn wardrobe.
But with 100s of new pieces landing online every week, it can be difficult to work out what’s a cut above the rest. That’s where I come in. As a self-proclaimed fussy shopper, I consider it a skill to be able to spot the hero pieces a mile off, so I scoured the new-in pages to bring you only the best of the best. Expect everything from relaxed tailoring to cosy knits and stylish boots to sensational sequins. Keep scrolling to discover my favourite new-in pieces, as well as some tips on how to style them.
