27 Chic Summer Shopping Picks from H&M, & Other Stories and Topshop



Not a day goes by where Who What Wear’s editors don’t WhatsApp, email or Slack pieces they’re contemplating buying to one another. It doesn’t matter if it’s high end or high street—every price point is given the same consideration. Lately, though, our favourite finds tend to be of the affordable variety. Looking back on our most recent conversations, it soon became apparent that many of the items currently on our wish lists can be found in one of three stores: H&M, Topshop or & Other Stories.
