I’m A Shopping Editor and This Is How I Create A Unique, Personal Style

Here at Who What Wear UK, we’re all about delivering the latest and greatest shopping edits, as approved by our team.

Who What Wear’s fashion editors are expert shoppers, and that’s an understatement. After all, it’s our jobs to search runways, retailers, and the internet for the best and the coolest in fashion. With that in mind, I always have a colleague to turn to whether I need to find out the trends that are about to be everywhere, insight about on-the-rise brands, or someone to weigh in about what’s happening at fashion week. My Slack chats are packed with messages to my co-workers about their thoughts on all of the above.
