Hello there 🙂
Since I got my job here at Who What Wear a few months after graduating from college, I've revamped my wardrobe to carry myself into the next stage of my life. Since we are still working from home, I didn't spend too much time on shopping but instead focused on investing in parts that would suit my new job and lifestyle while trying to stay on a budget and not Break the bank (completely).
While I was in college, I ran for what was affordable and trendy, after graduation. I've spent more time thinking about each purchase, and before hitting the check out button, I was wondering if I wanted to stick to my closet or if it's something that picks up dust after wearing it once or twice. On my journey, the following brands have been what I've relied on lately to create a chic and polished work wardrobe that still matches my comfort, style and price. You probably know them, but they are very popular for a reason. They are just that good and I will stick to using them through my 20s.
I love Aritzia for its special foundations that I know I will turn to again and again. The brand's SuperPuff was a lifesaver in the cold, and the Melina pants keep selling out for good reason.
I lived in the loungewear of the Reformation and lingerie after lingerie they still retain their softness and quality. They know how to make pieces that are not only trending but also tall enough to be considered timeless in my closet.
Even before I was an editor here, I was a huge fan of the Who What Wear Collection. The pieces are approved by our team and are available at a solid price. What more do you want?
Whenever I want to buy a fun piece or a piece from a smaller designer, I look to Lisa Says Gah. Every piece that I have bought from them is something special to me and gives me pleasure when I wear it.
I may not have the money to buy a brand new designer bag, but that doesn't mean I can't dig deep for vintage options. Vestiaire Collective was my favorite. I landed my dream Gucci Jackie bag on the website for under $ 300.
This is a no-brainer. I'm not trying to shop at Zara also often because the constant drops can be addicting, but when I really fall in love with a trend that I want to incorporate into my wardrobe, I turn to the retailer. Plus, the pieces I bought from Zara have kept in my closet for years, so I know I won't have to replace them anytime soon.
I used to hoard jeans like no tomorrow, but now I have some to rely on and my final purchases were Levi's. They're one of the few jeans that fit me in the right places, which is why I keep going back to them to buy my outfits.
