Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand shares the top 25 finds on their current wish list.

In case you're new here and we haven't met, let me introduce myself: My name is Nayiri. I'm a sucker for classic wardrobe builders. Throw a bodysuit and a pair of slim-straight jeans at me, and I can put together approximately three full outfits and tell you where to wear them. What can I say? I'm a natural.

But I wasn't always this way. I've gone through my fair share of experimenting with trends simply because they were trends, only to discover that I actually just wasted all of my money because they weren't pieces I personally loved. Over time, I've narrowed down the pieces I shop for into two categories: classic wardrobe builders and fun investment pieces I will wear forever. Right now, I'm looking for the former, and I'm turning to my go-to destination, Express, to find them. Between the luxe-feeling staples from the brand's Body Contour category to its selection of comfortable high-waisted jeans, I legit have zero reasons to shop anywhere else for these classics. See all of my picks below.

Nayiri Mampourian
Senior Fashion Editor, Branded Content

Nayiri is Who What Wear's senior fashion editor for branded content and based in her hometown, Los Angeles. It all began in 2014 when she landed an internship at the company and never looked back. While she does love writing her fair share of fashion stories, her heart really belongs in the brainstorm room, where she has fun strategizing different ways to create content with our fashion partners so that you engage with the brands you know and love. Her style tends to be more classic (she loves a good black-and-white look with gold accessories), and white pumps are kind of her thing. If she had to pick one person's wardrobe to raid, it would be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's, and she also has a major obsession with interior design. She's a mom to a 1-year-old baby girl named Sophie, and she fully plans on training her to spot fashion trends by the time she's 10. That's all!
