I Spot Trends for a Living, so Trust Me: These Are the 3 Fall Pieces to Buy Now

Lisa Aiken is Net-a-Porter’s retail fashion director, aka the woman responsible for our extensive wish lists and dented wallets. She’s something of an oracle for the Who What Wear UK team. We trust her every recommendation (and attend her seasonal trend presentations without fail); we look to her wardrobe choices and unwaveringly cool NAP edit to make our own moves; and now, she’s a regular columnist on the site—hurrah! This month, it’s all about how she is getting her wardrobe ready for the new season…

So here are my top three buys to help you get back to reality.
