How to Shop Who What Wear Collection (and Not Look Like Everyone Else)

 

The thing I love most about Who What Wear Collection, aside from their excellent price point and all-inclusive sizing, is that they keep their pieces mostly on the classic side. This means that you can get the most cost per wear out of your items by being able to wear them for years to come. I still have pieces from their launch line in my closet!

 

With the Who What Wear Collection being mass produced and sold at everyone’s fave, Target, how do you stay unique and not end up looking like everyone else?

 

Well, your favorite blogger and expert personal stylist is going to break it down for you in this post.  Not only am I going to give you the Dos and Don’ts, but I am also doing a full review!  You’re welcome.  I do want to note that there are always exceptions to any rule; so if you absolutely love something and it fits fantastically, then by all means get that $H%T!

 

Who What Wear Collection Review

 

The Pros:

 

  • Price point: Who What Wear Collection items are exceptionally well priced at under $60.
  • Quality: Who What Wear Collection craftmanship, tailoring and textile quality is amazing for the price point. Zippers topped with a hook and eye, darting placed correctly, and uniformed sizing are details that most fast fashion retailers forego to keep the price point low.  Their cotton jersey pieces are always soft and keep their shape and their thicker textiles like twill and denim are made in the perfect weight.  I have not spotted any pilling or holes in their pieces after several washes.
  • Style: Who What Wear Collection produces mainly classic silhouettes which makes it easy to mix and match with your current wardrobe.
  • Sizing: Who What Wear Collection is one of the best lines out there in all-inclusive in sizing. I work with women of all sizes and it is VERY difficult to get cute pieces in sizes over 12-14.  I wish more retailers would clue in on this.  The average size in this country is 12, yet there are very few retailers catering to this demographic.  I mean seriously; who are these business people?  It’s like a no brainer.  They would be making gagillions of dollars, amiright?  But I digress.  I’ll leave that rant for another time.

 

The Cons:

 

  • Trends: Who What Wear Collection sometimes goes a little bit nuts with the trends which ends up in complete disasters. Case in point: the black pleather moto jacket with blue fur collar.  JUST NO!  When it comes to fast fashion, you want to keep it super simple, else you end up looking cheap. #sorrynotsorry
  • Shoes: SO bummed about this one! Most, but not all, Who What Wear Collection shoes are painful and constructed poorly.  I have an average foot – not too wide / not too skinny.  I would have had to size up several times to get their super cute slides to fit as they are incredibly narrow.  The faux leather they use tends to be stiff and rubs in all the wrong places (sad face).  Hopefully they keep working on this one.

 

How to Shop Who What Wear Collection (and Not Look Like Everyone Else)

 

The Dos:

 

  • Stick to a neutral palette. The classics are harder to spot out on the streets.
  • Go for the classics. Who What Wear Collection does an excellent job at keeping the classics updated and on-trend without going overboard
  • Grab some classic prints, like stripes, polka dots and animal prints. These prints never go out of style and are usually hard to pinpoint
  • Look for tailoring in dresses and trousers. For example: elasticated waists sometimes equal bad fit.
  • Watch for special details in casual pieces. For example: unique buttons and ruffle detailing.  These little details make pieces look more expensive.
  • Mix high and low, like I did in this post. This is the oldest trick in the book – think: Olivia Palermo!  If you can afford it, invest in designer shoes, handbags and accessories.  When you are wearing well made shoes and handbags you will elevate your look with high quality pieces.
  • Use unique accessories like jewelry, scarves and shoes to make your outfit different from the rest

 

The Don’ts:

 

  • Avoid easy to spot items like trendy pieces and prints. Prints sometimes, not always, tend to look cheap, which you want to completely stay away from…like the plague.  That said, I will buy a print here and there.  I just make sure to keep it super simple, like a black and white floral for example.
  • Wearing one brand/designer head to toe. Mixing things up will make your outfit unique.  This goes for ALL fashion – high street or designer (AKA Kylie Jenner in a Fendi dress, shoes and stroller – eye roll)
  • Elasticated waists on trousers and sometimes skirts and dresses. This results in ill fitting clothing.
