I’m a Fashion Editor—Here Are the Autumn Basics I Get the Most Compliments On

Shop Like an Editor is a Who What Wear column where our senior editor Kristen Nichols shares her latest fashion finds.I’m always the most inspired to get dressed when a new season rolls around. Yep, it means that many of the trends I’ve been eyeing from the runways are finally starting to drop and I can start mixing them into my personal wardrobe. And that’s exactly what I’m doing this autumn. While I would normally be snapping up more statement-making pieces, I’ve been interpreting the trends by restyling many of the basics sitting in my wardrobe and adding in a few fresh finds for the new season.One thing I can guarantee—all of the pieces ahead earn major compliments every time I wear them. From the Instagram-inspired way I’m styling a sweatsuit to the comfortable jeans I can’t stop w...

7 Trending Autumn Dresses We've Seen All Over Instagram

Do you ever scroll through Instagram and get an odd sense of déjà vu, feeling as if you've seen an image—or, more specifically, an outfit—before? As a fashion editor, it happens to me all the time. I'll spot a dress that seems familiar, only to realise it's graced my feed one, two, or three times previously on various other stylish people I follow. From a specific shoe to a statement handbag, often, several members of the fashion set will be spotted wearing the same item. And while it used to be considered a fashion faux pas to be wearing the same look as someone else, now it is simply the sign of a trending item.Already this autumn, we've noted multiple influencers in the same dresses from brands including H&M, Song of Style, and Cult Gaia. With Jéan, in particular, has been extrem...

This "Ugly" Nail Colour Is Suddenly the Only One That Matters for Autumn

I never thought I'd see the day that the colour brown would make the ultimate comeback. You see, I fall about midway on the millennial age spectrum, meaning I grew up in the heyday of teen sensations Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, and Destiny's Child, who all regularly sported brown everything—from then-fashionable culottes and page boy caps to beauty staples like nail polish and lipstick. But once the 2010s hit, it's like brown got publicly shunned and relegated as the ugly stepsister to all the other colours. (Even pea-soup green has been prioritised above it.)But as the years have passed and trends have shifted, brown seems to be making a resurgence. On the fashion side, the once "ugly" colour has taken over the runways, and now, in the beauty realm, brown nail colours are all over the ...

We Try Before You Buy: Our Favourite Pieces From Our New Autumn Collection

There's something so whimsical about the onset of autumn. The air becomes crisp and leaves turn to shades of yellow, orange and red, blanketing parks and sidewalk across the country. Oftentimes, the new seasonal collections mimic this comforting shade combination as these autumnal colours have become synonymous with the season. From cosy orange knits to chocolate-hued trench coats and yellow patterned dresses, Who What Wear's new collection also embraces the shade range we turn to every autumn. The brand's latest collection was made with British women in mind, merging key trends of the season with practical, timeless essentials. Tapping into 2020's top styles including graphic checks, leather coats and abstract patterns, the range is versatile yet fashion-forward. Earlier this month, ou...

How Londoners Are Really Dressing This Autumn

In the grand scheme of things, the lack of new fashion images is hardly a big sacrifice in 2020, but I have to admit that I have missed the usual stream of red carpet, street style, and celebrity out-and-about images. While I long for the frivolity of the Met Gala and the Old Hollywood glamour of the Cannes Film Festival, it's the street style pictures that really provide the most style inspiration to me—and many others. With most of this year's fashion weeks taking place digitally and only a handful of buyers and editors invited to appointments, the street style scene was virtually non-existent this September. The thing about street style, however, is that it can give you just as many styling ideas as any runway show. In the absence of the usual street style galleries, we sent photogra...

This Chic Brand Will Help You Dress Like a French Girl This Autumn

One thing that unites every member of the Who What Wear team is their shared love of French fashion brands. There's just something about French style that gets us every time.

And no brand has the power to give our wardrobes that desired cool effect quite like Zadig&Voltaire.Zadig&Voltaire sets itself apart from other French fashion houses thanks to its potent blend of romanticism, rock-and-roll edge, and sophisticated polish.
