Casual Outfit @raeannlangas



If, like me, your day-to-day style errs on the simpler side, at some point or another you’ve probably wondered whether you’re accidentally venturing too close to the world of dressing boring. I get it. In fact, I’m sure that to some my outfits do appear less-than-interesting at times, but one thing I’ve found that always helps make my arsenal of basics and neutrals feel a little more exciting is the addition of cool bags and shoes.

Enter: the latest pieces from our Who What Wear line of accessories, all of which are not only eye-catching and on-trend but are also on the relatively more affordable side, too. In short, whether you opt for one piece or can't help but snag a few, they're all you need to turn your go-to look from simple to, well, simple-but-cool. To see and shop my not-so-little edit of favorites for yourself, including pieces that work for summer, fall, and both, just keep scrolling. 

If you think you can't wear these come fall, you're mistaken.

Every wardrobe needs (at least) one, simple shoulder bag.

The fall flats you didn't know you needed.

If you love dressing in neutral colors, this bag will go with all your usual outfits.

Kitten heels go with everything from skirts and dresses to jeans and trousers.

I had to throw a little zebra in.

A big, black clutch is surprisingly useful for both day and night.

I used to think light bags were only for the warmer seasons, but now I actually prefer how they look with fall and winter outfits.

Don't worry—this little bag is actually functional, too.

I have these and plan to keep wearing them with socks for as long as I can into fall.

I don't have much of an excuse to wear heels these days, but I'd find one for these.
