Who What Wear’s fashion editors are expert shoppers, and that’s an understatement. After all, it’s our jobs to search runways, retailers, and the internet for the best and the coolest in fashion. With that in mind, I always have a colleague to turn to whether I need to find out the trends that are about to be everywhere, insight about on-the-rise brands, or someone to weigh in about what’s happening at fashion week. My Slack chats are packed with messages to my co-workers about their thoughts on all of the above.
Who What Wear fashion editors each have their own takes on personal style. Some love bold colors and statement prints, while others prefer to stick to neutrals. Then there are some editors who have closets stocked with the latest emerging brands, and others who are always on the vintage hunt. One common theme? Our fashion editor style is constantly evolving as we add new items to our closets or get inspired about what is happening in the fashion world. So what defines our fashion editor style and what do we actually wear? Ahead, get to know our team a little bit more as we weigh in on personal style and our key shopping buys for 2021.
"Spring days can still be a little chilly, so I'll happily be wearing sweater vests over T-shirts. While they may have started off as a trend, they're definitely a closet staple for me now and will be for the foreseeable future."
"Ever since high school I've had a deep love for cool printed pants. Most people might find them hard to style, but I think they add such a fun element to any look and can be worn in a variety of ways if you take the time to play around with them. I've had my eyes on these from Reformation for quite some time."
"I consider my phone an accessory, so I love having a fun case. Wildflower designs my favorites, and I recently just got a new phone and already got two from their latest drop to deck my phone out in style. It's a mood booster, I promise."
"I've beaten my old pair of Nike's to the ground and I think I'm going to finally hop on the new balance train this year. At first, I didn't think I could incorporate a pair of grey sneakers into my everyday wardrobe, but fashion girls have proven me wrong."
"I like my pants on the baggy side with a higher waist, and when I saw this my mind immediately started coming up with a million different potential outfits. Cargos are coming back and I’m embracing it full stop."
"I joke that Margiela Tabis are a part of the Brooklyn, 'I work in fashion' starter pack; sooo many of my friends have them. Not gonna lie, I thought they were weird until recently when I saw this ballet flat version—now I’m obsessed!"
"The top I'm wearing in this photo is sold out, but the same print is on this lovely mini dress. It's a very Bridgerton print and reminds me of wallpaper in an English country house. What's not to love?"
"I love blazers because they let me get away with wearing jeans and a white tee every single day without looking lazy. I'm truly obsessed with this one in particular by Rag & Bone. It has a standing collar and no lapel, which makes it feel fresher than your average blazer. The army green color is also fantastic."
"If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I wear tons of printed dresses. I consider myself a print connoisseur if you will, so I don't say this lightly: Agua by Agua Bendita has some of the most beautiful patterns in existence."
"I own a ton of mini bags, clutches, and crossbody bags, but I have yet to invest in a really great shoulder bag. I love this Staud one because the zebra print is down-right drool-worthy and the beading detail caught my eye on sight."
"Anyone that knows me knows that I'm a sucker for heels, in all their forms, but especially when they come in the form of knee-high boots as stunning as these Brother Vellies x Pyer Moss ones. If life imitates art, then these shoes are the canvas for the entire look."
"I'm a big fan of Dôen's vintage-inspired dresses and blouses. I always treat myself to a new piece when a new season rolls around. Luckily, spring is just around the corner and I have my eye on this beauty."
