How Who What Wear Editors Would Spend $100
When you work in fashion, having a shopping addiction is part of the job requirement. (Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves, anyway.) And there’s a very welcome overlap between knowing the coolest new arrivals for a story and adding them to our shopping carts for the weekend. Case in point: I have a regularly updated email thread I keep for myself with the subject line, “Shopping list.”
But contrary to popular belief, working as a fashion editor doesn’t necessarily mean that you also need to have an insanely large wardrobe budget. In fact, if there’s anything we’ve learned at Who What Wear, it’s that you can achieve absolutely spectacular outfits at any price point, so long as you’re equipped with an eye for the right pieces and a killer set of styling tricks.
To illustrate just that, we asked our editors what they'll be buying this spring for under $100. Their answers may surprise you!

"$100 may not seem like much, but it can actually go a long way! One of the best ways to make things count, IMO, is to focus on statement accessories that will take the staples you already own up a notch."
Adidas Originals Top Ten Low Sneaker ($80)
“I have so many sneakers—but honestly, can you ever have too many? The answer is no. And that's especially true when it comes to clean white kicks. If I had a little extra cash lying around, I'd for sure add to my sneaker collection with this cool pair by Adidas. I have a feeling Gigi Hadid would do the same. Just sayin'."
Frame Denim Le Muscle Slub Linen T-Shirt ($95)
"If someone handed me $100 (takers, anyone?) I'd buy an expensive T-shirt. Why? Because it's not the most fun to splurge on simple pieces like a basic tee, but you end up wearing them endlessly, and a well-made version like Frame Denim's would stand the test of time."
"I'm a firm believer that there's no such thing as too much denim in your wardrobe. With that said, I would likely spend my $100 on these Slim-Fit Cropped Jeans from COS. I'm in love with the wash, and the price is right!"
