7 Cheap Buys Our Editors Are Making Look Triple the Price

Look, I’m not even going to try and play it cool when I say that our editors are a stylish bunch. We’re experts when it comes to shopping and we also know how to craft an impeccable ‘fit, even though our current stay-at-home lifestyle means we don’t get to share our personal style on here as often. So we’re taking this opportunity to flex our styling skills, this time turning our attention to the pieces from our own namesake clothing line.

If you didn’t already know, we drop new pieces for our Who What Wear line each month, and today our editors are test-driving some of the latest pieces including pretty summer tops and a healthy dose of flowy dresses that are perfect for hot weather. Even though nothing rings up for more than $40, the cool looks our editors put together are making these affordable buys look far pricier. Scroll down to see how we each wear our picks and then shop our favorites if you’re so inspired.

“Long, flowy dresses are one of my favorite trends this season. For this piece, I love the idea of styling it higher on one arm than the other for a slightly asymmetrical neckline. Add a pair of earrings and mules for the perfect easy summer look.”

“This fun top is so lightweight and breezy, you could easily get away with wearing it on a 100-degree day (I did). I paired it with long black denim shorts and thought it would be fun to dress it all up with these Wandler mules and silver hoop earrings.”

“The moment this WWWC amazon green dress arrived in my mail, I couldn’t wait to slip it on; and being candid here, haven’t really taken it off since. I wore it to a picnic, I slip it on anytime I need something cozy to roll up to my local bodega, or I toss it on for when I’m too lazy to put on a full look for my zoom meetings. For someone who’s vehemently opposed to biker shorts (not on other people, just me) I love having an arsenal of casual, breezy dresses that can be thrown on anywhere—and this one is a new favorite for sure as it’s light-weight, bright and even has pockets!”

“Like so many others out there, I’m really only interested in stretchy, comfortable tops right now. This scrunchy little number provides much needed throw-on-and-go ease while simultaneously breaking me out of the unhealthy attachment I currently have with hoodies and sweats. While I’ve never been that big on floral prints, I’m in love with the oversized flower pattern. The fluttery waist pairs perfectly with the official clothing item of 2020, bike shorts, but would be equally chic styles with relaxed boyfriend jeans.”

Who What Wear Floral Print Raglan Short Sleeve Blouse ($25)

“I always love a good utility/shirtdress––it’s a classic look that always makes you feel so polished with minimal effort. This particular one takes it up a notch with the fun animal print. The fabric feels like linen and is just the right weight (not too light, not too heavy) to wear in both the summer and fall. I paired it with block heels and a gold cuff––you can take this from the office to happy hour drinks or dinner.”

Who What Wear Short Sleeve Collared Dress ($40)

“As soon as I gave my reliable bike shorts uniform a rest to try on this printed maxi, I immediately understood why all the hype around “house dresses”. Not only does the flowy shape make it just as comfortable as any of my loungewear, but even the act of putting on something slightly more dressed up makes all my daily activities that much more exciting. I like how the print is dainty and involves easy-to-style neutral tones so I wore it here with lace-up sandals and a bucket hat.”

Who What Wear Sleeveless Dress ($40)

“I’m always a fan of a good statement sleeve. This dress has very pretty puffed sleeves with crochet details. It can be worn off-the-shoulder, but you can also wear it normally like a short-sleeved dress. I’m picturing this as a chic, easy coverup at the beach, but I also wouldn’t hesitate to wear it out to walk the dog.”
