Oh, hey—it's us, your favorite Who What Wear editors. We're back again to showcase our styling capabilities and highlight the newest pieces from our namesake clothing line. If you're familiar with this series of editor outfits, then just keep scrolling to fill up on outfit inspiration and affordable shopping picks. But if you happen to be new here, then let us fill you in. 

As a refresher, we drop new pieces for our Who What Wear line each month, and today, our editors are highlighting the covetable faux-leather pieces, easygoing sweaters, and holiday-ready dresses from the November collection. Even though no piece rings up for more than $40, the cool looks our editors put together are making these affordable buys look far pricier. Ahead, see how we each wear our picks, and then shop our favorites if you're so inspired.

"I normally gravitate toward knit dresses during colder months, but I couldn't help myself—this faux-leather one is too good. I love the cropped sleeve length, and the stitching detail around the neckline adds a really chic touch. I've been pairing it with just about any boot style, from these knee-high rain boots to shorter Chelsea styles."

It's officially leather season, and you can bet I'll be wearing this faux-leather shirt on repeat. It's has a boxy fit that makes it perfect for layering as a shirt-jacket, as I styled it here, but the fabric is surprisingly light, so I also want to try it buttoned up as a traditional shirt.

Here's a closer look at the details like these voluminous sleeves that make it.

"Well, it's official. My jeans rotation now has nothing on my trouser rotation. These pants are it. They're the perfect length, hit at just the right spot on my waist, and are just plain chic. I'm already planning to wear them with everything from cropped sweaters to blazers."

"If you read WWW often, you know we're all about tailored trousers right now. These aren't too loose but aren't too fitted. It's a sweet middle ground. Not to mention the material isn't itchy or scratchy at all, making it perfect for workwear and casual wear."

"With preppy fashion on the rise, I can't get enough of cable-knit sweaters this fall. I've been styling mine tied around my shoulders with ribbed tanks, baggy jeans, and sneakers."

"This sumptuous velvet dress is so perfect for the holiday season. It's extremely comfortable and not formfitting, so it'll be easy to wear for long nights. It's made with crushed velvet and comes with slightly puffed sleeves, which takes a classic LBD to the next level. Have fun styling this one with statement accessories."

"Don't get me wrong—I love a black sweater (or 10) in fall and winter, but when I put this on, I felt instantly less boring without overdoing anything."
