I'm Bored, so I Spent All Day Making My Who What Wear Collection Wish List

I'll admit it: I have been stalking the Who What Wear Collection site since its launch this summer. Nearly every item somehow meets one of my wardrobe needs and feels like a timeless investment piece that I'll be happy to reach for in five or even 10 years. I am always surprised at the continued fire coming from the collection, and the winter pieces are no exception. In other words, they do not disappoint. The collection truly has something for everyone, whether you're looking for a festive-occasion dress, a super-current, relaxed-fit blazer, a wearable shearling coat, or all the trendy basics you'll ever need.

Since I had the time today, I scrolled through the entire Who What Wear Collection and picked out the best pieces that will be making it on my wish list, aka all the fashion I hope to manifest this year. Keep scrolling to see what made my list, and check out all the fashion person–approved outfits to give yourself a head start on styling ideas.

1. The Tiered Venus Dress

I haven't seen anything quite like the Venus Dress before. Everything from the luxe plissé fabric to the tiered silhouette makes this dress look super elevated. The amazing part is it's just as comfortable as it is chic. Pair it with heels (like Chriselle has) for a nice meal or with a blazer for an important meeting.

2. The Kali Collared Shirt

This crushed velvet shirt is '70s glam in a nutshell. Lean into the retro vibes by styling it with chunky heels and a mini. Unbutton and wear it with a ringer tee if you're ready to go for it.

Match it with other black pieces for a textured and layered look.

3. The Ana Shacket and Lotte Midi Skirt

The Ana Shacket and Lotte Midi Skirt are made of a soft and warm wool blend that's perfect for the chilliest of days. They look amazing worn together as a set, giving the outfit that baggy, cool, je ne sais quoi.

Throw this shacket over everything from sweaters to turtlenecks.

This skirt is simply the chicest. Add a high pair of heeled boots underneath the skirt for an enviable look.

4. The Tanya Jacket

This structured jacket is made from a buttery faux-leather fabric that will go with all the nudes and muted tones in your closet. It includes a belt for when you'd rather wear it as a top.

Did I mention it has pockets galore?

5. The Kia Bodysuit

It's got to be the exaggerated retro collar for me. This one is a no-brainer and will go with the most casual of jeans or tailored trousers. 

6. The Alex Minidress

I present to you the party dress that flatters everyone. This shirred style hugs your curves in all the right places and will maintain its shape while you're cutting it up on the dance floor.

Push up the sleeves for a fun '80s moment.

This dress in gold is so stunning IRL. Add a wide-buckle belt and statement earrings because more is more.

8. The Billy Shearling Jacket

The Billy Shearling Jacket is made in a perfectly boxy cut with more than enough room to layer chunky knits underneath. It has the perfect weight-to-warmth ratio, so you can pack it in your suitcase without regret.

The cropped cut looks amazing with longer layers underneath.

9. The Bri Double-Breasted Blazer

Green is fashion's color of choice, and this shade is spectacular. It's neutral enough to wear with all your lighter- and darker-toned basics, but it's also super unique. Plus, this relaxed fit is the only one I'm interested in until further notice. A winner if you ask me.

10. The Nicky Knit Polo Top

This knit polo reminds me of the retro polos cabbies wore in the '60s. Made from a stretchy knit material, it's the perfect in-between shirt when it's too warm for a sweater but too cold for a T-shirt. The cap sleeve is also just the cutest.

I love how it's styled here with tailored trousers and square-toed loafers.

11. The Frances Collared Shirt and Carmen Pants

Green strikes again! This time in a cozy person's favorite outfit: a matching set. The textured fabric elevates this set above sweats, but it's still just as comfortable.

The deep V-neck shows the perfect amount of décolletage.

I hope you got rid of all your skinny pants because flared and straight-leg cuts are all you should be wearing.

12. The Darin Sweatshirt and Nary Sweatpants

For all the time we spend wearing sweats, it's about time a fashion brand took the time to design a pair that actually fits us well. The Darin Sweatshirt and Nary Sweatpants are just that. Considered details such as the wide waist-cuff and tailored-fit bottoms make this sweatsuit stand apart.

Plus, they feel like butter.

These automatically fit like your favorite pair of sweats.

13. The Frankie Turtleneck

The scalloped trim on this turtleneck is so '90s and so on-trend right now. It's cropped, so wear it with all your high-waisted pants and skirts.

The white trim is such a cute touch.

14. The Camille Top and West Slip Skirt

Last but not least, this gorgeous royal-blue set is as regal as they come. Both the top and skirt feature a twist detail that makes them look far more expensive than they are. Wear them as separates or together for a full royal-blue look. I think Michele Obama would approve.
