The Denim Trend Fashion People Are Swapping Short Shorts For

For some of us, digging out our denim collection has taken more persuasion this summer than ever. As we swing between comfy outfits and dressing for actual real-life events and occasions (remember those?), jeans have had to settle at the back of the closet. Until now, that is. Jean shorts are making it easier to step back into the world of denim, and nope, we’re not talking the usual cut-offs—it’s all about longer hemlines this season.  The laid-back appeal of denim combined with the chic Bermuda length creates a hybrid that has really captured the imaginations of fashion people. And although they bring an air of nostalgia, the look feels fresh and versatile enough to wear around the clock. There are so many non-dated ways to style shorts this summer, a...

From Factory Floor to Your Front Door: What Actually Is Fast Fashion?

Who wouldn’t want a gorgeous dress that looks designer but only costs £10? It’s hard to say no to that, but what’s the catch? Many of us buy our clothes from fast-fashion brands or “high street” retailers like H&M, Zara, Urban Outfitters, or faster-fashion brands like Shein, Boohoo, and PrettyLittleThing. We shop with these brands because they save us money by offering a stylish selection of clothes and accessories at an unbeatable and affordable — yet sadly unethical — price. The problem with fast fashion is that although it offers exceptional convenience to fashion=lovers, there is a hidden cost that we’re all paying for without realising. Much like fast food, fast fashion is filled with questionable chemicals and bits of plastic and it exploits hu...

Over-50 Women With Ridiculously Good Skin Share the Products They Swear By

“My skin is very sensitive, so I don’t use any cleansers or moisturisers on my face as part of a daily routine and normally wear very little makeup. To remove lipstick and eyebrow pencil, I use virgin olive oil available at any food store, then rinse with water and pat dry. My mascara rinses off with water. I try to use natural products whenever I can. If I’ve worn more makeup than usual, I’ll use this to do a final overall cleansing sweep. Unlike the dozens of other bar soaps for sensitive skin I’ve tried, this product does not burn, and makes me feel like I’m getting a fresh, deep clean.” You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for Dates Online. So we reimagined what a dating should be. It begins with giving you back power. ...

Arket’s Most Coveted Jumper is Finally Back in Stock and It Won’t Hang Around

I don’t want to sound like a fashion cliché but I think I’ve fallen in love with a jumper. To be fair, the pullover in question has all the attributes I’m looking for—it’s striped, loose-fitting and, crucially, looks way more expensive than it is. The piece I’m referring to comes from Arket and costs £69—the brand has reissued this jumper after similar versions sold out earlier in the year, and I (along with the rest of the Who What Wear team) have been waiting for this new drop ever since. It’s not really surprising that we’re all falling over ourselves for this high-street item, considering this is very similar to the incredibly expensive Celine version, so this feels like a real bargain.  This time there are two ver...

J.Lo Wore an Oversized Button-Down As a Dress With This 2000s Shoe Trend

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Jennifer Lopez can wear absolutely anything and pull it off like a pro. The latest example? J.Lo was photographed in Los Angeles wearing an oversized button-down shirt sans pants—because who needs them in this heat?—along with a lightweight sweater and a Coach x Jean-Michel Basquiat bag. The shirt-as-a-dress look reminds me of a recent Megan Fox outfit. Great minds think alike. J.Lo also wore chunky, platform sneakers that are very in line with the resurgence of Y2K trends this year. Scroll down to shop her shoes as well as other pieces to recreate the easy, breezy summer outfit.  You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for Dates Online.

Princess Diana’s Niece Just Got Married in a Victorian-Inspired Wedding Dress

I know our readers love a good royal wedding, but this weekend the best I could do is serve you up a fantastic royalty-adjacent bridal look to whet your appetite before Princess Charlotte finds her partner. Princess Diana‘s niece, Kitty Spencer, just got married in Rome, Italy, and the ceremony had all the trappings of a royalty-worthy affair.  On Saturday, Spencer married South Africa–born businessman Michael Lewis at the Villa Aldobrandini wearing a custom Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda lace wedding dress with statement shoulders.  According to the brand, the gown was inspired by the Victorian style of the 1800s. After getting married, Spencer changed into an unexpected number for her reception: She nixed a white dress in favor of a beautiful blue ...

I’m a Fashion Editor and These Are the 4 Wardrobe Heroes I Swear By

The process of refining your wardrobe into a functioning, well-oiled machine is not one that happens overnight. It takes time to work out what items you actually wear, and often it will be the pieces you least expect. Someone once taught me a trick to turn all your clothes hangers the same way, then when you wear each item, you turn each coat hanger around. The result? A very clear representation of the items you do and don’t wear. Smart, right? Well, clearly I’m not the only one who knows the power of a good basic, as NET-A-PORTER has just launched a ‘Wardrobe Heroes’ category which speaks to exactly this.

8 Denim Trends We’ll All Go Wild For This Autumn

Ah, denim. Where would our wardrobes be without it? We dread to think. Still, however integral to our daily looks it may be, it’s still seldom makes an appearance on the high-fashion runways. At least that was considered to be the case, until a host of designers began giving it the ultimate seal of approval by incorporating it into the catwalk collections. Now, denim regularly appears in the seasonal line-ups of everyone, from Chanel to Dior, as well as the brands known for their more casual aesthetics, such as Chloé and Celine. It just goes to show, that there’s a place for denim, no matter what your fashion preference may be.  You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for Dates Online.

I Swear, This Summer Trend Just Keeps Getting Better and Better

I’d never advise you to double up on pieces you already own, but this year’s gingham offering is so impressive, even our team—who own more than their fair share of gingham pieces between them—are tempted to snap up some of the new styles on offer. The only thing left to cover is how to wear gingham and make it feel fresh. You can do this by buying into the sub gingham trend that’s currently taking over. For 2021, gingham checks are brighter and bolder than previous seasons, with bold green, purple, and orange iterations proving just as tempting as the timeless black-and-white combinations. If that feels too full-on, fret not, for the print is also making its way onto handbags, shoes, and accessories, too—meaning you can tap into the colourful gingham trend without having ...

Let’s be clear about one thing when it comes to leggings: they’re either a smart item or something that’s incredible casual—there doesn’t seem to be an in between.
