At Who What Wear, we try to steer clear of the one-style-fits-all approach to fashion. Since everyone has unique sensibilities, we make it a priority to appeal to a variety of tastes and personalities, and this month’s edition of Styling Tips is no exception. Whether your sartorial mantra is “everything in moderation” or “go big or go home,” we’ve got some wardrobe suggestions you’re sure to love. Click through to see our foolproof outfit advice, inspired by Alexa Chung, Solange Knowles, and more.
