These £35 M&S Pumps Not Only Look Expensive—They Also Go With Everything

Marks and Spencer is one of our favourite places to shop for long-lasting wardrobe staples and has a strong track record of every day turning basics into cult items, whether it’s a grey jumper or a beige wrap coat.  Erica Davies is one of our favourite influencers to follow for a high-street edit, as she consistently finds pieces that defy their price tag, and today she introduced her followers to the most amazing pair of M&S Collection pumps. These £35 pumps have a high cut and a gentle V towards the toe, which make them appear more elevated that the classic almond toe. There’s something a little Phoebe Philo about this silhouette, no? Erica owns them in tan, lemon, lilac and black. Initially, there were seven colours available, but a suede and a leopard-print version are ...

My Whole Team Dislikes Wedge Sandals, Unless They’re Exactly Like This

Not every style of shoe appeals to every single woman, and when I asked the Who What Wear team about wedges recently, the responses were impassioned to say the least: “Ew, the worst” “That’s a broken ankle waiting to happen” and “I hate a high wedge” were just a few of the comments that came back to me, and I had to admit I felt the same way. I was once a die-hard high-heel wedge fan and I can still see their appeal (comfy despite the extra height they give you and they’re pretty classic when it comes to summer outfitting) but there’s something about the really extra-stacked ones that feels a tad outmoded for now. They will return, like all shoe trends do, but for the time being our office’s general consensus is that wedges are at...

Sorry, Florals, But This Is the Summer Dress I’m Wearing From Here on Out

For a season that’s given us many an excellent dress—Kitri’s pink gingham, & Other Stories’ floral mini and basically every Faithfull the Brand creation, to name but a few—we thought the frock frenzy had reached its peak. Turns out, we were wrong, for yet another frock iteration started to rise through the sartorial ranks. Having caught the eye of more influencers than we can keep track of, fruit-print dresses are certainly having a moment. It all started with Ghost’s Alice dress, a black maxi dress adorned with tiny little lemons, which everyone in the know has been wearing since April. Now, with the likes of H&M, Loewe and Reformation getting in on the five-a-day action, the fruit-print dress is proving to be one of summer 2019’s must-have buys.  Top...

I Just Found the Best 48 Under-£100 Buys In Time For Payday

What to buy under £100? It’s a question we often get asked, especially around payday. You want to allow yourself a splurge without being silly, but that kind of pressure can lead to either purchasing something entirely useless on a whim or not getting anything at all (sacrilege!) So this is where we step in to offer up a bit of guidance. There are no set rules about which items work under this price point and which items don’t; it’s more about cherrypicking clever pieces that look expensive even if they really aren’t. A statement accessory can be worn a million ways, but it’s also well worth considering elevated, updated staples—like a great camel-coloured blazer to replace all of the worn-out jackets from last year, or a pair of cord trousers that are on-tren...

10 Leopard-Print Outfit Ideas I Want to Copy This Summer

A few weeks ago, I was seeking fashion advice from our Facebook shopping group, So…Should I Buy This?, in relation to a leopard-print jacket I was considering from & Other Stories. The response was overwhelmingly positive: Some readers even insisted that leopard print is now a neutral. It wasn’t long ago that leopard print was considered tacky (hello, Janice from Friends) and synonymous with the “mutton dressed as lamb” stereotype. In 2019, however, it has been widely embraced by the fashion crowd, most notably achingly cool French It girls like Camille Charrière and Anne Laure Mais. The classic print has been given a serious rebranding, and it’s considered a totally accessible aesthetic. It’s perfectly normal to see people walking down the street in...
