My Favourite Influencers Showed Me What's in Their Summer Shopping Baskets

There's no escaping the fact that this summer is a bit of a weird one. But with lockdown easing slightly, there are plenty of reasons to be joyful. We can now spend time in parks (socially-distanced, of course) and even with loved ones in gardens. Soon, pubs might actually be a possibility.

Still, at Who What Wear, we want to offer a bit of escapism, and while we're all scaling back how much we're shopping, whether for environmental, ethical or economic reasons, there are some items of clothing that are simply happy. I asked some of my favourite fashion people what they love for summer right now, and they all chose fun, pretty and colourful pieces. It's not going to transport you to a BBQ with all your nearest and dearest, but it might put a smile on your face.

London-based Eni always has an eye for super-cute styling. Whether it's a bold green dress with loafers or an ice-cream hue outfit paired with bright-orange strappy sandals, there's always inspiration to find on her Insta page.

We are long-time fans of Ellie, aka Slip into Style, a fashionista from Martinique living in Paris. From Jacquemus to Réalisation, she always showcases the coolest French brands. That being said, she's got an eye for finding expensive-looking pieces on the high street too⁠. Truly a woman after our own hearts.

Nnenna's wardrobe just makes us happy. We've already talked about how she's a whiz with mixing prints and colours so it makes sense that she'd choose some of the funnest summer pieces around.

Hello! Yep, it's me. I used to be terrible with having bright colours in my wardrobe, but I've completely changed my mind. Now, it's a real rainbow and I love it (case in point: the pictured red cardigan above). I've chosen pieces that I know will lift my spirit when I'm wearing them. 

Next up, the biggest spring/summer 2020 fashion trends you need to know.
