I Asked WWW Editors to Style 10 Under-$50 Items—Their Looks Are Everything

I miss going into Who What Wear's HQ every day. There—I said it. I miss seeing my coworkers, and above all, getting inspired by whatever stylish new outfit recipe they step into the office wearing. So although each of us may not be enjoying each other's company IRL, I thought it would be fun to have our team of editors dress up from home in the latest pieces from our Who What Wear collection to make us at least feel more connected. And their outfits are officially inspiring me.

As a refresher, our line of clothing drops new pieces each month, with everything being surprisingly affordable (I'm talking under $50 affordable) and offered in a range of sizes from XS to 4X. After test-driving some of the line's latest pieces, I can confirm that they're pretty enough to break me out of my loungewear rut while being comfortable enough to actually work from home in (think billowy cotton dresses and easy ribbed knit pieces).

Ready to get inspired by our editor's 'fits? Simply scroll down to see how each of us is wearing our picks from our new arrivals this month, and then shop our favorites if you're so inspired.

"I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go in this dress, but I wouldn't sleep on this pretty little number, even if it's a 'buy now, save for later' situation. The one sleeve makes it feel trend-forward, and it has a darling knot detail at the shoulder that I love. The fabric composition includes a majority of linen, making it breathable, luxe-feeling, and washable. Did I mention it has pockets and a stretch waistband to help with any fluctuations in size? That's right—it's basically a dream dress. Also, my pretzel pose here makes the length of the dress a bit unclear, so I wanted to share that I'm 5'4'' and when standing, the hem landed about two inches above my kneecap."

"I plan on living in this chic floral dress all summer! The bold print is so pretty and the silhouette is super flattering—from the square neckline to the waist-cinching belt. It's easy to dress up or down with heels or sneakers. The best part? It has pockets! I'll never say no to a pretty and practical dress with pockets."

From the delightful polka-dot print to the lovely puff sleeves, there's something undeniably French feeling about this top (or, at least wearing it made me feel like one of those stylish Parisians I'm always studying). I was feeling fancy, so I styled it up with a slip skirt and strappy heels, but I think it would look just as good with a pair of jeans.

"This skirt is quickly becoming one of my summer staples. It's super lightweight and looks just as good with heels as it does with flat slides."

"The simplicity of utility pieces has never been more appealing than it is now. This dress is something that makes me feel pulled together at home, but the bonus is how comfortable it is to wear."

"A wise woman once told me that balloon sleeves are a surefire way to earn compliments. (It was WWW editor Anna LaPlaca, and based on the approving looks I got from my man and my dog, I think she was right! Or maybe they were just shocked to see me in something other than my go-to sweatpants.) Even though I won't be able to test this sartorial theory in the wild any time soon, I'm still so excited to have this cute top in my wardrobe. I rarely wear prints—or colors other than black, white, grey, and beige, for that matter—so this floral number is a welcome departure from the norm. I love the puffy sleeves, but the tie waist is what really drives it home for me. Although I usually find WWW collection items to fit a little loose, I'd say this top is true to size. I can't wait to wear it to my next Zoom happy hour."

"Imagine your favorite black ribbed tank in dress form, only better because it comes with a flattering belt!"

"When it gets warmer out, I especially gravitate toward loose and breezy outfits. This dress is so airy and light, so I know it will keep me cool on hot days. I also love that it's your basic black sundress, but it has some fun details like puff sleeves, textured dots, and a crochet-like trim. Plus, I definitely see myself wearing this when I'm working from or staying at home but want to ditch my leggings."

"I'm on the shorter side, so I don't wear maxi skirts a whole lot, but I guess I was feeling crazy and gave this one a try. The tiered shape is super on-trend right now, and wearing it with a bit of a heel made it the perfect length for me. I paired it with a crop top and a leather blazer, but it's enough of a statement piece that just putting on a plain white T-shirt and calling it a day is just as good. Also worth noting that the dark floral print makes it look so expensive."

"First of all, I'm so obsessed with the fact that this dress has invisible pockets. (As someone who never knows what to do with her hands, I'm appreciative.) Second, this dress is so versatile. Since I'm in full-on casual mode right now, I decided to go against my natural inclination to pair this with strappy sandals and wore my high-top canvas Vans instead, and I'd easily top it off with one of my favorite denim jackets. That said, this could also look more elevated if you wore heels or sandals and some gold jewelry. The fabric is soft, super-stretchy, and forgiving. That, added with the tie-belt, makes it incredibly flattering."
