At Who What Wear we are always trying to help you find pieces that will be a long-lasting addition to your wardrobe, that will not only out-live fleeting trends and fit in with your personal style, but stand up from a design point of view. That is why this month we have brought you ‘The Great Try On‘ where our editors and friends of Who What Wear have tried new-season pieces and styling moves, to help you find those that are actually worth investing in or recreating yourself.
There can be many difficulties shopping on the high street, from the wild discrepancies with fit and quality, not to mention a lack of size diversity and the promotion of a throwaway fast-fashion culture. But for many of us, shopping on the high street is what is accessible and realistic. That is why I decided to enlist some of the best shoppers and stylish women I know to bring the one high street or affordable piece they are really championing for autumn winter 2021. All I asked is that they select something that they think is truly amazing from anywhere on the high street, and their selections couldn’t be more varied. Stylist and fashion editor Nana Acheampong picked a bright blue sequin dress, while the influencer India Sehmi picked a simple, but beautiful, white shirt.
We shot each of them at home via the magic of the internet, so that you can see up close how these items really look like on and why they’re so obsessed with them.
