Hello there 🙂
Most Wanted is a weekly series in which a Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand shares the 25 best finds on their current wishlist.
When I first saw the following video about the hanger method for cleaning your closet, I was honestly shocked. What a great idea? Second, why didn't I think of it before? I knew I needed a closet clean because it had been quite a while since I'd sold or donated something, but I didn't know how bad it was until I tried this life changing hack.
Here's how it works: Make sure all the hangers are in the same direction to start. When you're wearing something, just hang it back up in the opposite direction. I did this for about six months and found so many items that I wasn't wearing. Some were occasional pieces, like wedding guest gowns, that were understandably unworn, but many were things that I just don't have much use for anymore. The following is what I wore the most in 2020 and which items get the boot.
My "going out" days are over for a minute now and it turns out, good or bad, that my harvest days are too. I think this is the result of entering my late twenties (sigh). They were noticeably replaced with a variety of ribbed armor last year and I can't say I'm crazy about them.
I didn't wear a single romper last year (and maybe even the one before) so I think it's time to break with style. Instead, I wore tons of comfortable house clothes. You know the slightly oversized that nearly Are similar to pajamas.
The thought of wearing a silky blouse, or worse, a silky button, makes me spiral. I can't imagine wearing a fabric like this now that I'm so used to comfortable clothing. Cozy knitwear, especially cardigans, is my new go-to place, and I don't expect this to change anytime soon.
I know, I know. It's not that I haven't worn a lot of leggings or sweatpants in the last year, but somehow I "dressed" in my favorite jeans too. However, I was surprised to see that not a single pair of denim shorts was used, even on warm days.
My situation with outerwear in general took an interesting turn in 2020, largely because I moved from New York to Los Angeles. One category of jackets that I not only didn't wear in LA, but also wouldn't have reached on the East Coast, were bomber jackets. The trend had its moment and that moment has passed (for me!). Unsurprisingly, I was wearing sweatshirts
