I don't even need to look at my bank account to know I've been good this year, so I think it's only appropriate to treat myself to some end-of-year gifts. I want to stock my closet with cute pieces that feel both on-trend and timeless: big knit sweaters, classic denim cuts, and statement wool coats. My co-worker, who is an avid fan of anything PAIGE, has told me countless times that the brand is the one to turn to for items that hold their value for years to come. Its collection is filled with tops I can dress down with its signature jeans or up with chic leather-look pants. Plus, there are a couple of dresses I'm super excited about because I haven't added to my dress collection in far too long, so I'm excited to layer them with long coats and tall boots. Keep reading to see my 21 top picks for closing out the year and how I plan to style them.
The holidays are low-key this year, but I'm still treating myself to luxe leather-look items because I like feeling fancy.
Cable knit. Puff sleeves. Big cowl neck. What more could you want in a cozy winter sweater?
I have been on the hunt for the perfect long camel coat my entire adult life, and finally, I can rest.
I suddenly need a pair of wide-leg denim in this rich, classic blue.
I've seen fashion girls all over social media in midi-length knit dresses. This is the one for me.
These '70s-inspired bell bottoms would also look super cute with the above plaid coat.
Wrap dresses are universally loved by everyone and for good reason. This moody floral print would look so good paired with combat boots.
Combine the highest and lowest of 2020 trends, and you get this luxe pair of leather-look leggings.
Workwear has been trending a lot this year, and this would make such an effortless WFH 'fit.
Aralyn Beaumont joined Who What Wear as the copy editor for branded content after a career in food media. Years of poring over intricate recipes with a fine-tooth comb and working with high-profile chefs has prepared her well for working with fashion's top brands while honoring Who What Wear's voice. Her background as a research editor makes her a finicky editor who will probably care too much about making sure all copy is as factually accurate and aligned with the house style guide as can be. Maybe it's because she's a Gemini, but her personal style is impossible to pin down: One day you'll see her in a turtleneck sweater tucked into a midi skirt with heeled boots, and the next, she'll be wearing mom jeans, a white Hanes tee, and classic Vans. At the end of the day, her style reflects her various moods. Sometimes it will be feminine and elegant, and others it will be grungy or androgynous. Certain things will always remain constant, though. She'll forever be on the hunt for the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans.
