I'm In My Picky Shopping Era—30 No-Regret Finds I Know I'll Wear for Years

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 30 fashion and beauty finds on their current wish list.

As someone easily tempted by bright shiny objects, I've made my fair share of shopping mistakes. But I can't blame myself for wanting to try the latest trends—after all, I am a fashion editor. That said, I've turned over a new leaf. I've grown tired of retiring items I've only worn once or twice. It's not a great feeling, so I've recently been focusing my shopping energy (and funds) on items with longevity. Even if I won't be wearing all of these items 10 years from now, there's a lot to be said for something I can wear for at least four years. 

In case we're on the same wavelength and you're also looking for a more timeless, versatile wardrobe, I'm sharing 30 items that meet that criteria. Scroll to shop my picks.

Next up, 30 quiet-luxury shoes you'll be able to wear with so many outfits.
