Deciding what to spend your money on is no easy task, and that’s why team Who What Wear is always on hand to navigate you through the intimidating world of online shopping. We’ve created What to Buy Now for exactly this purpose: Every Monday, we bring you an edit of the best new pieces from high-street and designer labels. We’re constantly scanning the most stylish online stores so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you won’t miss a thing.

We know that your fashion requirements can vary massively from week to week, whether you’re looking for an immaculately tailored staple for work, an affordable sundress for your summer holiday or the perfect pair of shoes for a special event. So not only will we cover all the bases, but as ardent believers in mindful consumption, we’ll also make sure everything we include will look just as fresh now as it will in a year’s time.

Of course, we’ll also bring you those pieces that simply set your heart racing in a way that only fashion can. This week, we’re looking to elevated basics: Think elegant midi dresses, high-impact coats and power-shoulder party tops. Highlights include M&S’s sellout hiking boots, which are not only practical but will also add an edge to any outfit. I also have to include a quilted vintage jacket I stumbled across on Oxfam online—a dead ringer for plenty of designer iterations. Scroll down to shop my edit.
