We get it—it’s a little painful to fork over large sums of money on undergarments and the like that rarely see the light of day. Equally painful is wasting your hard-earned cash on lingerie that lives up to the old “you get what you pay for” adage. That’s why we made it our mission to share with you the brands that do affordable lingerie the best, from fast fashion (think Topshop) to niche labels (think Baserange).

Our advice when shopping for affordable underwear, bras, slips, and sleepwear? Stick to muted or classic hues (they look more expensive than bright colors) and avoid embellishments and prints when you’re going for a high-end look. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference it makes. Keep scrolling to check out the brands we recommend and shop our picks from each.

In this bizarre in-between period of reentering society and, by proxy, dressing for the occasion, one can’t help but feel anxious and unsettled. Like many of us, I’ve been looking forward to wearing real clothes again, but now that the time has finally come, I’ve found myself suddenly unable to let go of the plethora of house dresses, leggings, and loungewear that I’ve amassed while working from home during the pandemic (you’ll have to pry my tie-dye sweatsuit from my cold, dead hands!). The mere thought of putting on a full-fledged outfit sends my mind into a tailspin. My humble suggestion? Find a middle ground.

Enter the slip dress. Unlike the traditional ’90s style beloved by style icons like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, this iteration is like a cross between a nightgown and PJs, rendering it ideal for transitioning into the new normal. Simple, easy to wear, and, yes, … Read the rest

Sorry, Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas, I have a style crush on Frankie Jonas. The youngest of the Jonas brothers has been making waves with his personal style, TikToks, and he’s even landed his first fashion campaign for MCM. I spoke with Frankie to learn more about how his style differs from his brothers’, his love for thrifting and Depop, and his plans in fashion.

Right off the bat, I realized that the 20-year-old is just as charming IRL as he is in his hysterical TikToks, and I laughed through our entire conversation. From his TikToks you’ll notice that his personal style is also super relatable and down to earth. (Speaking of TikTok, I’m still not over all his fans spamming his brothers’ accounts with comments like, “OMG! It’s Frankie’s brother!!!”) “My personal style is a mix of a lot of things. I think the best way I could describe … Read the rest

It’s no secret that we here at Who What Wear are obsessed with French style—French women make everything look effortlessly chic. They never look like they’re trying too hard, accessorize just the right amount, and somehow always have that enviable “I woke up like this” thing going on. So needless to say, I turn to French girls for inspiration when thinking about spring outfit ideas. 

A red dress is as classic as it gets for spring, as it’s the ideal pop of color you’re craving once the weather starts to shift and flowers are blooming around you. Most of us have at least one red dress in our closet, so I figured it’s worth taking a look at how French women style theirs to inspire some new outfit combos with a piece we may already own. From sneakers to sun hats to shoulder bags, French girls pair a few key … Read the rest

As a fashion editor, I’ve found that my friends routinely use me as a trusted source for sartorial guidance. Basically, I’m often one of the first people they text when they’re on the fence about a particular item or want help identifying the latest trend to try.

One of my very good friends recently asked me for advice on some of the best oversize blazers because she wanted to add some relaxed tailoring into her wardrobe. I sent over three options (including this $75 Nordstrom pick). I also sent her a few other spring items I’m loving that I knew she’d be into. I thought you might be interested in some of said pieces, so I’m sharing the items below (the first four on the list). I also scrolled through some of my favorite sites to uncover a smattering of other chic items that piqued my interest.

With all that … Read the rest

Netflix’s new true-crime series The Serpent takes us on a journey of glamour, seduction, and murder. It follows the story of ’70s French serial killer Charles Sobhraj (played by Tahar Rahim) who goes by the name “Alain” and his menacing partner-in-crime girlfriend Marie-Andrée Leclerc (played by Jenna Coleman) who goes by “Monique.” While the pair prey on Western tourists traveling in Southeast Asia, Monique uses her charm and fashion sense to lure in unsuspecting victims – and although we absolutely condemn her predatory behavior, we know exactly how to copy her sultry French-bohemian style.

In the 1970s, the ideal fashion look included flared, high-waisted blue jeans or trousers secured with a wide belt. Oversize sunglasses were also very popular, as well as bright psychedelic prints. As depicted in The Serpent, some of Monique’s signature pieces are hair scarves, aviator or large square-framed sunglasses, and gold drop-hoop earrings. She’s most … Read the rest

In some parts of the country, spring is certainly taking a bit longer to arrive than you might have hoped. But look at the bright side: That will make warm weather’s arrival all the sweeter. Kacey Musgraves, for one, isn’t waiting another day to bust out her cutest bikini. In photos shared on her Twitter, Musgraves wore the Frankies Bikinis Claire Triangle Terry Bikini Top in Positano Stripe ($85) and Barb Terry Bikini Bottoms in Positano Stripe ($90), and now I’m convinced I need the pieces as well.

As a cherry on top, Musgraves also wore a pair of matching Johnson Striped Terry Pants ($140) that look as comfortable as my baggy sweats but a whole lot chicer. As it happens, her bikini and pants are part of a collection that also includes a polo shirt, shorts, cardigan, mini skirt, and more. A Musgraves-approved item for every day of the … Read the rest

Update: The Met Gala is officially returning this year! On Monday, Vogue announced the Costume Institute’s plans for not one but two major exhibitions, along with a “slightly smaller celebration” pending government guidelines later this year on Sept. 13, timed to the closing of New York Fashion Week. The magazine also confirmed the event will return to its regular scheduling in 2022 and continue to host the party on the first Monday in May next year.

While a theme has not yet been announced for the 2021 Met Gala, the details surrounding the two-part exhibition may offer some clues. The first part of the exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” will open on Sept. 18, while the second, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” will show starting May 5, 2022.
