7 Easy-to-Copy Minimalist Summer Outfits That Will Always Look Chic

It could just be me, but the older I get the more I find myself drawn to the minimalist side of life. Less is more, and all that. Especially when it comes to my wardrobe—rather than experimenting with trends like I used to, these days I’m investing in those classic pieces that I know I’ll want to pull out year after year. Yes, it has a lot to do with wanting my closet to work a lot more sustainably, and buying fewer better items that last is the first step towards that. But a collection full of elevated yet understated capsule pieces is also, in my experience as a stylist, the easiest, low-effort way to always look chic.  This rings especially true in summer, when loud prints and bright colours are ubiquitous. There’s something particularly sophisticated about a pared-back monochrome ...

7 Easy Outfits Centred Around Basic Vest Tops

Fashion can often be distracting; bright colours, bold prints, and new trends can pull focus and sometimes cause us to overlook the hardworking basics our wardrobes need to thrive. In the past, when I prioritised statement pieces over anything else, I always felt as if I had nothing to wear. The appeal and shine on maximalist dresses or exciting shoes would quickly fade, and soon I’d be on the hunt for another buy that got my pulses racing. In the years following, however, I shifted my focus to honing my basics, and now, with drawers and rails lined with pieces that are truly versatile and interchangeable, I never feel as if I have nothing to wear. And one of the most-worn items in my wardrobe is the vest top. Tank tops, vest tops, whatever you like to call them, are having a moment r...

Linen Trousers Are Everywhere—6 Outfits Tempting Me to Buy a Pair

FOMO is something none of want to feel, be it a night out, a festival, gig or an item of clothing. And I can’t help but feel I’ve been missing out on linen trousers for so many summers. The thing is, my steamer (from Steamery) is my best friend, I use it daily, and I take it on every single trip (even travelling around South East Asia.) The easy way to iron, I steam everything before I wear it to keep the creases at bay. So, this is why the idea of linen trousers that easy crease freak me out. This was until I saw so many of my favourite influencers wearing a pair, that is, and I soon realised embracing creases is all part of the laidback summer vibe. The fact is, you can also invest in a linen-mix pair that won’t crease as much as the pure linen counterparts. And while I always...

I Try Not to Buy New—5 Summer Staples I Pull Out Every Year

This is the final piece in my series about capsule wardrobes and what better way to finish it off than to be talking all about summer staples. I have spent my entire adult life looking forward to the great summer wardrobe switchover. It’s a ritual for me, out with the chunky, dark, winter clothes and in with colourful, cheerful and lightweight summer options. I find that it always comes at a time where I’m starting to grow a little bored of my wardrobe, so once I unpack the boxes of all of these (old) goodies, it’s as if I’m seeing them for the first time all over again.  I have so many pieces that I love—especially in the dress department—but there will always be those key pieces that come out year after year. If you don’t already own these pieces (chances a...

These 15 Items Are the Definition of “Cult Buys” This Summer

A Who What Wear Summer Issue wouldn’t be complete without a bumper shopping guide, so before we had even decided who our cover star would be or what trends our team would be trying IRL, we knew we’d be bringing you a primer on the cult items for 2022. Gone are the days when It items are solely dictated by a celebrity endorsement or a moment at fashion week. Now, these pieces appear to emerge from almost nowhere thanks to a brand suddenly gaining traction on Instagram or TikTok. This list includes the big-player luxury fashion brands you might expect, such as Loewe, Chanel, Prada and Hermès. But it was, as always, very important to us that we also featured those small-but-mighty brands that are getting support from some of the biggest editors, buyers and influence...

Chances are you own at least one blazer. Right? The last time I checked, I had over 10 colours, prints, shapes and styles.

And I’m in good company, seeing as so many of my favourite fashion influencers have also been championing these warm weather–appropriate styles. As a cool cover-up that won’t make you overheat, it’s the perfect “Should I pack a jacket?” item to wear as a layer during unpredictable summer weather.

Whether it’s stylis...

I’m a Fashion Expert—Here Are 30 Elevated Pieces Worth Buying This Summer

I’ve worked in the fashion industry as a stylist and editor for close to a decade, so I’d say by now I’m pretty confident in spotting a great wardrobe buy when I see one. Over the years, I’ve seen trends and cult items come and go, experimenting with some along the way. No doubt they were fun while they lasted, but these days, I’m much more about investing in elevated pieces that I know will stand the test of time, whether that means pinpointing the most expensive-looking high-street finds or saving up for luxury pieces I truly love.  It can be so easy in summer to get carried away with the influx of cheap prints and playful designs that pop up, but taking a step back and considering what might have a seasonal sell-by date is so important if we’re going to cu...
