Some of my Who What Wear stories have upward of 40 pieces that I'm vouching for at any given time. This one has just five. The reason? They're so good that they require one's full attention, in my humble opinion. Most of these items are ones that I've acquired within the last six months, so the good news is that they're all still readily available to purchase in case I convince you to join me.
Elevated basics are my favorite basics to buy. Sure, we all need basics, but basics tend to be a bit boring. I fully support those purchases too, of course, but basics don't have to be that way. The below clothing and accessories (including shoes, clothes, and some jewelry) I'm borderline obsessed with are anything but boring. Keep scrolling to find out why and to shop them for yourself. Trust me when I say you'll want to.
By Far Este Boots
These ridiculously comfortable, lightweight boots entered my life this fall, and I don't know how I lived without them. What I love about them is that they don't look like sock boots, but they're still slim enough to fit under skinny jeans. Plus, the square toe is such a cool feature. If I had $2K to spare, I'd buy them in every color.
Alo Lounge Leggings
Since buying my first pair of Alo lounge leggings a few months ago, I've acquired them in three colors. The word soft doesn't even do them justice. They're honestly the most comfortable leggings I've ever owned, and they're just compressive enough to hold everything in. They also come in a million colors now, which is fun.

Mounser Pearl Earrings
I got Mounser's Breaker Earrings for Christmas, and they're changing my life already. I have plenty of studs and simple hoops but was seeking to jazz up my jewelry collection, and these did just that. Plus, Mounser price points are very reasonable for the quality.
Citizens of Humanity Olivia Jeans
I don't know what took me so long to discover Citizens of Humanity Olivia Jeans, but now that I have, they're all I want to wear. They're stretchy but never lose their shape, and they're the perfect length for my 5'4" frame. Buy them now, and thank me later.
Dagne Dover Landon Bag
I don't remember the last time I took a trip without this bag. Whether I'm traveling by plane or car, the large size works out perfectly (and I don't travel lightly). It's extremely durable and lightweight and definitely ended my years-long search for the perfect carry-on bag.
