We're Ready to Go Out Again (Whatever That Means)—10 Trends We're Trying

You may recognize Janet Gunn and Melissa Meyers as the duo who frequents Who What Wear to lend their style expertise. You might also be familiar with Susan Feldman as a regular voice on the site. While they each typically focus on sharing their own distinct perspectives, the Los Angeles–based trio has teamed up today for what we can only describe as one epic collaboration. The topic of conversation? The going-out fashion trends that are actually resonating for this new era of reemerging into the world.

All three women are excited to embrace elevated dressing again and have their eyes on several key trends to ease back into a going-out wardrobe. The 10 themes below touch on the season's freshest silhouettes, but true to form, each has styled them in a timeless, elevated way. Reemerging into the world will, no doubt, look and feel different for everyone, but for Gunn, Meyers, and Feldman, these key pieces certainly feel the most relevant.

Colorful Dresses

On Gunn: Ganni dress; Parker Thatch bag; Christian Louboutin shoes

"I typically gravitate toward earth tones for evenings out, but this season, I'm adding a bit of color into my life with this dress by Ganni." — Janet Gunn, influencer at The Grateful Gardenia


On Meyers: Ba&Sh blazer; Alice+Olivia top; Ramy Brook pants; Schutz shoes; Polène bag

"I am wearing lower heels this season, and mules are super easy to slip on and off and look chic. Block and kitten heels are my go-tos now, even for a night out!" — Melissa Meyers, influencer at The Glow Girl

"Special" Tops

On Feldman: Mango trench; Zara shirt; J.Crew jeans; The Volon bag

"You can be sure I will be wearing a gorgeous, pretty top that feels special. There are so many pretty options whether you go with a gorgeous print or a textured solid." — Susan Feldman, founder of In the Groove and co-founder of One King's Lane

Crisp Suiting

On Gunn: Anine Bing blazer; Zara trousers; Parker Thatch bag; Dior shoes

"I'm giving my blue jeans a break and taking it up a notch with these white Zara trousers and Anine Bing blazer. Cocktails, anyone?" — Gunn

"Fitted blazers are taking a back seat in my closet and were replaced with a few oversize ones that go with everything from jeans and shorts to dresses and skirts." — Meyers

Slip Dresses

On Meyers: Careste dress; Polène bag; Marc Fisher Footwear shoes

"I am wearing fewer minidresses these days and loving the look of sleek slip dresses. I like pairing them with lightweight trench coats for a night on the town." — Meyers

Matching Skirt Sets

On Gunn: Ciao Lucia top and skirt; Dior shoes; Parker Thatch bag

"In my closet, black is always trending. This matching skirt-and-top set is so fresh and summery, perfect for a lunch date alfresco." — Gunn

White Jeans

On Feldman: Zara top; J.Crew jeans

"I love a good pair of white jeans. As a matter of fact, I wear them all year long. They always look stylish and very with it. I am gravitating these days to more of a flare. I find that this silhouette elongates my body. And who doesn't need a little elongating? Make sure to get a pair with a little stretch. This will add tons of comfort." — Feldman

Bermuda Shorts

On Meyers: Ba&Sh blazer; Everlane shorts; Charles & Keith shoes; Polène bag

"I'm giving up my short skirts and dressing up Bermuda shorts with blazers for lunches." — Meyers

Platform Sandals

"Goodbye, high heels; hello, platforms. This is a great way to get a little height and be übercomfortable. I especially love ones with raffia bottoms for this season. They feel so summery." — Feldman

Small Bags

On Gunn: Ganni dress; Parker Thatch bag

"I'm saying goodbye to large, heavy bags this season and wearing these smaller ones with long straps that can be worn crossbody. These also look chic held by the handle, and they are large enough to fit all my essentials." — Meyers

"These days, I don't have a lot to carry, so I am loving these smaller purses that hold exactly what I need." — Feldman
