I Asked 7 Influencers to Share What's On Their 2023 Wish Lists

My first port-of-call when I’m blanking on outfit ideas? Instagram, of course. The sheer volume of fashion-savvy users regularly posting their #OOTDs means I'm guaranteed a wave of inspiration with one quick scroll. Minimum effort, maximum reward.

But I don't just use social media to find looks to recreate. It's also a handy resource when I need guidance on what's worth buying. Especially because, at this point, there are certain influencers I follow whose taste is top-notch every time, and I know I can trust their judgement. When I'm in a shopping rut but struggling with some serious gaps in my wardrobe, all I need to do is consult their feeds and suddenly my wish list has reached unruly lengths.

The first month of the year is prime time to arm yourself with fresh pieces you can wear for the next 12 months and beyond. So, I've taken it one step further and asked a handful of influencer which items they'll be adding to their rotation—before they've actually done so. It's always fun being ahead of the game. Take a look at hero buys these style insiders are lusting after now, and hear how they'll be incorporating them into their wardrobes for the season ahead.

London-based influencer Lizzy is known and loved for her fuss-free approach to fashion, blending androgynous silhouettes with a classic colour palette. Even when she adopts a trend, she does so in a way that feels totally true to her personal style. Unsurprisingly, her 2023 picks didn't disappoint.

Danielle's style strikes the perfect balance between timeless and unexpected. You'll spot her taking familiar pieces and wearing them in a way that feels new and exciting. I can't wait to see how she rocks the items on her wish list.

As an author and the founder of wellness community thy.selfChloé is a busy woman—but she doesn't cut corners when it comes to her style. Shop her eye-catching picks if your wardrobe is in need of some pizazz.

Daria is certainly not afraid to express herself through her clothing, which is always really refreshing. When she's not donning all-over sequins (her wish list speaks for itself), you'll find her in sleek monochrome looks and vinyl co-ords. Yes, really.
