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.
From our favorite sandal brands to our go-to basics to the affordable dresses we currently have our eyes on, our editorial team has been sharing tons of great items to consider for your summer wardrobe. To make sure we're not biased, we like to also tap other experts for their trend advice and shopping picks, so this week we reached out to celebrity stylist and fashion consultant Cat Pope to find out what she thinks is worth purchasing this summer. "My personal approach will be to support smaller businesses wherever possible and champion those that are responsible in their production and sourcing," she says. And lucky for you (and us!) she agreed to share her exact favorites, along with her expert styling tips. Behold the 25 items she's betting big on for summer.
"These dresses travel really well, and this amazing color really embodies summer for me."
"This fun little style is a great evening option for summer and comes in a color combo that can be worn a million ways."
"These bodysuits are so versatile and wear so well over time, making them a worthy investment."
"These are definitely the shape of the season."
"The off-the-shoulder neckline is a real winner in summer, and this cream linen is timeless and versatile."
"Another great one that is timeless and versatile. I love the leg slit."
"Ephemera pieces are figure-flattering and always come in gorgeous prints. This one is a beautiful color palette."
"Rixo is my go-to summer brand. The prints are a great way to incorporate color, and the fabrics are light and breezy to wear."
"These are special enough to be a focal point of any casual summer outfit, especially when your hair is up."
"Everyone needs a catchall for summer days."
"This piece seems cool and effortless and of course has a comfort factor."
"I like to think of great ways to improve pieces you already have, like adding a belt to cinch a dress or shirt."
"A fresh and fun take on a classic. It’s perfect for work or play."
"Since we are having a lot of Facetimes from the shoulders up, a hair accessory makes a lot of sense. These don't feel too fussy."
"This is such a stylish redux of a classic summer piece. You’ll find so many ways to wear it."
"Everyone is spending a lot more time at home, so why not do it in style and comfort?"
"I love the softness of these pieces and that you can be comfortable but still feel sexy."
"Vegan shoes are never this chic! It’s wonderful that there are finally some brands instilling as much attention into their design as they are their mission."
"Tie-dye is always a good move for summer. The cargo pant is also the pant of the season, so this pair is a match made in heaven."
"As an Australian, I’m very conscious of sun protection and never go anywhere in summer without a hat. Bucket hats are great as you can pop them in your bag."
"The pants embody the perfect lounge feeling we all seek in athleisure but are lightweight and dressy."
"I met these designers last year, and their shoes are just heaven."
I love that Gigi is always such a conscious and thoughtful designer. Her pieces are gorgeous, and this mask is no exception.
"Everyone has been spending a lot more time at home, so homewares are more popular than ever. I love these fun and vivacious designs to bring color into the home."
"I love the look of gold jewelry, and strawberry quartz sounds just delicious."
