Trust Me—Buy These 16 Things
Trust Me—Buy This is a series where editor-at-large Nicole Eshaghpour makes her favorite fashion finds shoppable for Who What Wear readers.
I'm baaack! After a nearly two-year hiatus, I've returned to sharing my real-life shopping picks in a little series known as Trust Me—Buy This. Inspired by my now-defunct shopping Instagram account—if you know, you know—this is where I get to show you what I'm actually wearing out in the world and what was truly worth spending my money on. In other words, things are getting personal, and there are mirror selfies involved.
For the season premiere, you can expect tons of spring-ready pieces (and outfits) that can easily transition into summer since, as we know, that's just a few short weeks away. I've got everything from jeans and going-out tops to leggings and sneakers. All I can say is I hope you like it! To see, read about, and shop all my current obsessions, simply keep scrolling.
I thought the cargo-pant trend wasn't for me until I found these. I have to stop myself from wearing them every day and am already thinking about snagging a second pair in one of the other colors. Pro tip: They run large, so I would suggest going one size down. About the shoes, I was late to the Samba game, but I finally know what I was missing out on. They simply go with everything and are both relaxed and polished at the same time.
When I tell you these are the coolest shoes I own, I mean it. I've loved Salomons since I saw them on none other than Hailey Bieber, and when I finally got my hands on a pair, I was hooked. This color is unfortunately sold out, but below are the other shades of the XT-6 style that I'm considering buying next.
I've been wearing these simple black leggings for over three years and through two pregnancies. When I tell you that the first pair I purchased then looks just as new as the pair I bought three months ago, I mean it. They don't fade, they don't tear or pill, and they're so flattering.
Any Pilates girlies in the house? You need these affordable tube grip socks.
The Khaite Lotus Mini bag is probably the most complimented item in my rotation right now, and that's not just because I wear it nearly every day. The suede is stunning, the shape is unique, and it's such an easy bag to just throw your things in and go. I love this size, but I'm highly considering adding a second larger one to my rotation for days when I have more to tote.
I initially borrowed this jacket for a Who What Wear try-on story, and I loved it so much that I ended up buying it afterward. I'm all about topping off my warm-weather looks with a light layer, and this linen piece felt like one step up from a button-down without the heaviness of a jacket. I wear it with everything from jeans to shorts to workout clothes (as seen in previous slides).
I feel like you're either a pouch person or not, and I'm such a pouch person. When I saw these in the Zara new-arrivals section, it took me all but one minute to add them to my cart and check out. When they came, I immediately sent this picture to my friends and told them they all needed to get them too. I love the texture and colors and just know I'll use them so much for future travels.
Toothpaste for scale!
I never felt like I could pull off baggier jeans until I got these Levi's. They're the perfect level of bagginess for me—not too oversize but not tight either. I like how they are mid-rise rather than super high, and they're that classic shade of blue that I love. Oh, and did I mention they're under $100? What's not to love?
A closer look.
Looking for the perfect going-out top that feels cool yet polished? Meet the Susana Monaco Faux Leather Tube Top. It's fun, it's flattering, and it goes with everything from trousers to miniskirts to jeans. I've been wearing it on repeat ever since I got it, and I just found out it comes in a cropped version too. Guess what's in my cart?
It's seriously so good.
We can thank TikTok for this one because that's where I discovered the unbelievably cool brand behind this top. I saw it on my For You page, and I think I ordered it within minutes—no regrets. The jeans are a Reformation pair that I have been loving lately. Just simple straight-leg, high-rise denim that pairs well with everything.
Not all tanks are created equal, and immediately upon trying it on, I realized that this one by Wardrobe.NYC (the brand that perfects every basic) was a real treat. The cut, thickness, and shade of black are just on another level. Here, I'm wearing it with my favorite maxi skirt by Matteau. When I bought it on Moda Operandi, I noticed that they had styled it with the waistband folded over on the runway, so that's how I've been wearing it, and it just feels a little cooler.
The folding also cinches the waist more, making it even more flattering.
Aside from being on a linen kick, I'm on a vest kick, so this outfit really combines all my current passions in one! I got this vest (with the matching pants) a few months ago and have gotten so much use out of it by pairing it with different bottoms ever since—and it's not even summer yet! The shorts are another item influenced by my Reformation try-on, and they're such a good addition to my closet. They can be dressed up or worn casually, but either way, they feel so comfortable and easy.
