25 Pretty Yet Practical Fashion Items I Plan to Live In This Winter



Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 finds on their current wish list.

When it comes to my shopping habits there’s no doubt I’ve been leaning towards more practical purchases this season—more time spent at home and in the great outdoors with fewer opportunities to “dress up” for holiday soirée's this year means I’ve been favoring items that are wearable, functional, and comfortable, yet don’t sacrifice on style. In fact, my winter shopping cart is currently brimming with pieces that strike the perfect balance of pretty and practical that are guaranteed to help me feel good, look good, and lift my mood this season.

From striking knitwear to cozy shearling coats and trending chunky boots, there are plenty of Insta-worthy items to luxuriate in this cold-weather season. So sit back, take a sip of hot toddy, and scroll below to see the pretty yet practical fashion items you’ll want to live in this winter.
