In my role as shopping editor at Who What Wear UK, I spend a lot of time sifting through sites and searching through stores to find the right pieces to maximise your wardrobe. Wondering what to wear to work? I’ve got you covered. Dressing up for a dinner event? I can find the right dress in an instant.
But one topic that requires some real thought is preparing your wardrobe ahead of a seasonal shift. In spring and summer we can rely on linen pieces and breezy dresses, but the cooler transition into autumn and winter means layering up in items that work hard in your wardrobe and feel as good as they look (and if you’ve ever spent your commute overheating in a mohair knit or shivering through brunch in a thin jacket, you’ll know exactly what I mean).
As a team, we always advocate for shopping smarter, not harder; and building a balanced wardrobe that will stand the test of time is the ultimate goal. So, looking ahead to an autumn and winter of fluctuating temperatures, I thought long and hard about the key buys that will see you through this season, the next, and many more to come, and my go-to for wardrobe staples of premium quality is Hush.
Those in the know will already think of Hush for easy basics, polished workwear and off-duty essentials, but it’s the brand’s approach to laidback luxe that really captured my attention for A/W 23. You’ll find wearable takes on runway trends (most notably, grey, exaggerated silhouettes and contemporary denim), alongside heavy hitters and all-rounders like the ultimate coat and the cashmere knit.
