And Now, Every Perfect Item on Our Fashion Editors' Autumn Wish Lists

Do we, the Who What Wear editors, share one mind? Before compiling this, the autumn wish list of all autumn wish lists (it never hurts to get ahead, right?), I would have said no. We each have distinctly different aesthetics and rarely double-up on purchases unless it’s something classic like a Loewe straw tote or something equally as versatile. But if you see the pieces each of our editors, myself included, have their eyes on for autumn, you would be forgiven for assuming we conferred about our choices before submitting them. This wasn’t the case. It does, however, reinforce the idea that autumn is going to be all about a particular kind of aesthetic.

Binding our edits together are pops of bold green, dresses with simple silhouettes in knitted fabrications, jewellery with sparkle, timeless tan and brown handbags and elevated tailoring. Some brands recur, too, with Arket, Gucci, H&M, Mango and Loewe cropping up over and over. There are, of course, a few curveballs—rhinestone trousers, anyone?—but scrolling through our wish lists will give you a clear idea of what’s going to be on-trend and in style this autumn. Scroll on to see eight fashion editors' autumn wish lists to inspire your own new-season shopping list.
