The best part about working at Who What Wear is that we get the opportunity to look to several different pockets in the industry for inspiration. Celebrities, runway, bloggers, and, of course, shopping. And though each of these sectors of style is vital to keeping ourselves (and you!) up-to-date with what’s going on in the fashion world, there’s something particularly special about knowing what industry insiders are wearing. After all, these women know a thing or two about putting together a great ensemble.
Who are these insiders, you ask? A concoction of It models, fashion directors, and all-around creatives. And because we as fashion editors find their style so inspiring, we thought what better time to round up some of their best looks than when we’re on the cusp of a boatload of holiday parties? Scroll down to see seven standout party outfits from these chic women, and shop our under-$50 Who What Wear collection picks to get their look.
