Are the days all blurring into one for you too? Today is Friday—just in case you need a reminder—and congrats to us all. We’ve made it through another week of quarantine, social distancing, and working from home. I’m starting to think I’ll never wear jeans again, though.

From the most charming cardigans to the fluffiest slippers and the coolest sweats, scroll below for 29 affordable fashion picks that will serve you throughout quarantine and the months thereafter.

Want to inject a dose of fun into your wardrobe? There’s nothing quite like a motif tee to do that job. Luckily, we have tonnes of great styles for you to pick from right now, spanning everything from slogans to graphic prints, logos and band designs. To make the choice easier for you, we decided to look to the stars and picked three options for you based on your star sign. Keep reading to find out what your horoscope has in store for you when it comes to your next outfit…
Known to be optimistic, determined and confident, Aries are most likely spending their time working out at home right now. To make it even more worthwhile, invest in a new and fun T-shirt from one of your most-loved sportswear brands now.
Patient, stable and practical Tauruses will want to stick to something that’s simple when it comes to getting dressed at the moment. But that doesn’t mean boring: we love these classic boxy tees updated with designs inspired by this Earth sign’s natural habitat.
Adaptable Geminis love to travel and will probably feel a bit stuck at the moment. So, broaden your horizon in different ways and opt for a T-shirt that pays tribute to your favourite destination, a place you still want to see or your usual free-spirited nature.
Times like these can be tough for Cancers, who are highly imaginative, emotional and sympathetic. Make sure to remind yourself of your big heart and the qualities you’re most proud of by – quite literally – wearing your heart on your sleeve with these slogan tees.
Bold and creative Leos will never just settle for any old T-shirt, not even right now. So, take your pick from clever slogans that speak your mind or go for an on-trend cropped style with an eccentric print to showcase your uniqueness in any situation.
Usually shy and analytical, Virgos could see this time as an opportunity to experiment with their fashion choices. Whether it’s an out-there graphic print, a cool landscape design or a dreamy mythical illustration – you’ll definitely find something here to inspire you.
Balanced Libras like to be consistent and elevated with their wardrobes and even their T-shirts have to look premium and fit perfectly. So, these tees in elegant colourways and with luxe details like diamanté embellishments and embroidery are their perfect match.
Scorpios are usually seen as the most edgy star sign and this also shows in their fashion choices. When it comes to the T-shirt, it’s all about rock ‘n’ roll and band-inspired motifs for them. Or, as they’re super proud to be a Scorpio, this crop top would also be a great option.
Sagittarii are known for their great sense of humour, so they’ll love anything that’s a bit more fun and unique. From retro logos to cute destination designs or joke motifs, you’ll want to go anything but predictable with your T-shirt’s shape, print and colour too.
Ambitious, responsible and disciplined Capricorns love a good mantra – because they know they’ll stick to it. ‘Everything happens for a reason’ or ‘love what you do’ are phrases they use on the regular and – lucky for them – we now have a T-shirt that’ll say it for them…

No matter what your plans are, wearing a dress that makes you feel like your most authentic self will boost your confidence and show people who you are. Plus, when you do discover one of those dream dresses, you’ll want to wear it now and forever by styling it in all sorts of different ways. So, if you want to make the most out of your new wardrobe piece, it’s key to find a style that really works for you. To help you out, we’ve rounded up all the nicest dresses around right now – just take your pick…
- Spring brights…
Nothing will put a spring in your step quite like a bright and energetic colour palette. Think crisp lime greens, warm poppy reds and vivid pinks for the perfect sartorial pick me up.
- Keep it comfy…
Aside from loungewear, dresses have got to be some of the most effortless pieces to chill out in. All you need to do is throw them on and go. If you’re someone who really loves to maximise comfort, stick to jersey materials and simple silhouettes.
- New season florals…
Everyone likes receiving a bunch of flowers, so consider these the kind of bouquets that will never die. Whether you go for a vibrant multi coloured print or a ditsy pastel pattern, the flowers on these dresses will last a lifetime.
- Work it from home…
Easy to wear, cool and professional: these midi dresses tick all the boxes for the perfect work from home look. Plus, their neckline details and fun spring prints will have you feeling on form for your video conference, your lunchtime walk and everything else the day throws at you.
- Something special…
Got a few occasions on the horizon or just feel like treating yourself to something special? A style that really suits you is timeless, so investing early is never a bad idea. Our favourite options right now come in satin fabrics and romantic prints.
My typical online shopping experience tends to look a little like the following: find a specific item I like, cycle through every color option it comes in, proceed to add every color or print option to my cart, then let them sit in my cart for a good few hours while I try to narrow them down to one. I like options, and being forced to make a singular decision is not one of my strong suits. All of which probably explains why I’m such a big fan of the two-tone trend. It’s fresh, it’s Princess Diana–approved, and it’s an easy solve for anyone who experiences as much indecisiveness as I do. Why settle for one color when you can have two?
The split-tone color-blocking has been a fashion week favorite the last few seasons thanks to the likes of Celine’s popular mismatched sandals and the handful of contrasting half-and-half designs that followed. But this season’s two-tone hero is clearly spring dresses. Between a classic pink-and-red pairing to more unexpected options like a green-and-black gown, the 16 bicolored dresses ahead are pure relief for anyone who has a hard time picking sides.
Take a page out of Vic Styles’s book and add some extra color to your vacation wardrobe.
The most obsolete fashion “rule” to ever exist: Black and brown can’t be worn together. Alyssa Coscarelli’s leather wrap dress proves just how wrong that is.
This dress could have looked good in either color, but I’m inclined to believe it looks so much better in both.
Even the chicest silhouettes can benefit from a two-toned makeover.
Spring has well and truly arrived, bringing us a whole host of new-in product for the season ahead. From cute mini dresses to street-style-inspired loungewear and cool accessories, there’s so much to discover. Not sure what to go for? To help you out, we took a look to see which colours are trending at Topshop right now…
- Pale blue
From faded denim to printed accessories and tiny tops – we’re having a serious crush on all things pale blue right now. Got for a head-to-toe tonal look or mix your favourite piece with other pastels to make it feel fresh for the new season.
- Stone grey
Grey is anything but boring right now: think acid-wash jersey, joggers in cool new silhouettes and cropped tops that go with virtually anything. We’re especially loving it as a total grey look made up of several different shades.
- Lime green
Lime green is the colour of spring 2020. The bold hue works especially well on all your favourite jersey styles or on-trend accessories like the nylon bag or a bucket hat. Mix it with lilac to achieve the most exciting colour contrast of the moment.
- Pink tones
When it comes to pink, there’s not a lot you can do wrong right now. From pastel tops to washed-out joggers and soft knits, you’ll find all your favourite pieces in your favourite shade. To make it more interesting, you can also go for a full tonal look here.
A mix of different whites is pretty much the coolest thing you can wear right now and there are so many shades to pick from: think oatmeal, off-white, pale beige, crisp white or ecru. It’ll instantly make your loungewear look feel a lot more elevated.
The fashion trend cycle can be fickle. One month, a certain silhouette feels relevant and the next it’s become saturated. And though I’m a firm believer that you should wear whatever you please at all times, I’m also a firm believer in falling in love with a new trend or two along the way. The last few months have procured a handful of fresh trends that while shiny and new, also have a lot of staying power thanks to their versatility. Reworked gold hoop earrings, wide-leg jeans, and a handful of other pieces ahead are worth adding to your shopping list. And for the sake of cleaning out your closet, I also rounded up five trends that may be worth taking to your local Goodwill (provided they aren’t serving you anymore).
Below, five trends I predict won’t last long and seven that I suspect have some real staying power. Discover the trends, shop the picks, you know the drill.
Won’t Last Long: Fancy Flip Flops
Flip flops have received the high-end stamp of approval from brands near and far and while they’ll likely work for this summer, something tells us the idea of a pair of flip flops at a designer price point won’t be in favor for long.
Staying Power: Wide-Leg Jeans
Step aside, skinny jeans it’s time to let a more comfortable denim silhouette take the lead. Wide legs have entered the mainstream and in rises and washes that feel especially flattering and easy to wear.
Won’t Last Long: Pants Tucked Into Boots
If you’ve paid attention to street style in the last six months then you’re already well acquainted with the pants-tucked-into-boots trend. While this look is quite chic, it’s probably so much of a statement that it won’t stick around forever.
Staying Power: Vests
Vests have ebbed and flowed in the trend circuit for centuries plus designers have served up chic iterations in the last couple of seasons that make this layering piece well worth the investment.
Won’t Last Long: Bermuda Shorts
As much as we adore a leather Bermuda short right now, the silhouette is admittedly a tough sell to those who are used to their classic blue jeans and trousers.
Staying Power: Leather Blazers
There’s something so enduringly stylish about a leather blazer. Thankfully, there are plenty of elevated vegan options on the market these days and the piece can transition between seasons seamlessly.
Won’t Last Long: Hair Barettes
Multicolor, oft-bedazzled hair barrettes had their moment in the spotlight but it seems these whimsical accessories are losing steam.
Staying Power: Chunky Gold Hoops
Gold Hoop Earrings
It’s unsurprising that the chunky gold hoop trend has staying power; the jewelry staple goes with everything and instantly brightens up your face.
Won’t Last Long: Padded Headbands
Another hair accessory that may not weather the storm is the padded headband. Though great for a statement party look, it doesn’t feel quite as versatile as its non-cushioned cousin (the regular headband).
Staying Power: Ruching
Ruched details add an artisanal element to whatever piece you find it on—purses, pumps, dresses, and so on. It’s a classic design element that’ll never go out of style.
Staying Power: Quilted Accessories
Similar to ruching, quilted design details give accessories a handmade vibe that always looks sleek. Wear now, wear often.
Staying Power: Croc-Effect
A croc-effect texture always looks more expensive than it is, which is cause enough to add to your wardrobe for many years to come.
There was once a time when off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder tops reigned supreme in the shirting realm. Then, like many items as they travel throughout the trend cycle, they sort of fizzled out in recent seasons in favor of trendy mock-neck styles and the sort. But asymmetrical tops, in particular, are pushing their way towards the sartorial forefront again, and the chicest fashion girls are taking note. There’s nothing passé about this neckline right now.
Yep, when I scrolled through my Saved photos on IG to get some cool outfit ideas, I was delighted to uncover that quite a hefty chunk featured one-shoulder tops styled in a plethora of modern ways. I’m talking neutral bodysuits teamed with wide-leg trousers and cardigans, statement tops with jeans and bold accessories, and everything in-between.
To showcase this newer fashion-person staple even more, I rounded up some of the said ensembles I’m into featuring the asymmetric shirt front and center. And naturally, I also shopped out each inspired look as well if you’re looking to jump back on this trend wagon again.
Team a white bodysuit with trousers and a coordinating cardigan for a trendy vibe. Gold jewelry compliments the look just flawlessly.
A cropped asymmetric top is particularly cool with of-the-moment utility pants.
Elevate a one-shoulder top even more with a slouchy blazer and cool pleated pants.
An outfit featuring a black top paired with balloon-type jeans and strappy sandals is simple yet statement-making.
While the neutral tops are definitely reigning supreme, printed iterations are also having a moment worn with jeans.
Keep it chic and easy with a black asymmetric top, skinny jeans, and loafers.
We at Who What Wear always have our attention focused on the next big thing in the fashion world. Right now, that means the trends that are on the horizon for spring 2020. If the emerging trends on the runways and street style scene are any indication, there is plenty to look forward to in fashion for the coming year. Which pieces are the most essential to begin investing in now, though?
Let me introduce you to our handy S/S 20 capsule wardrobe that details the biggest trends fashion insiders will adopt next year. From the new way to wear leather to the shoes that are about to explode to the jewelry trend that just got a huge upgrade, ahead, discover nine fashion must-buys to get in your closet now. Go on to see how stylish fashion girls are already wearing the pieces now, and shop our edit.
By now, it’s clear that leather looks are a permanent part of the fashion-insider wardrobe, but for spring 2020, we’ll be seeing a transition from neutrals to bold colors such as yellow and purple.
We spotted long, Bermuda-style shorts all over the S/S 20 runways, from Chanel to Staud. Fashion insiders have already been wearing them, but we expect the trend to explode next year.
Anklets have been popular among fashion insiders during past seasons, but now the jewelry has actually become incorporated into shoe styles with cool chain details.
Long, Flowy Dresses
Market editor Judith Jones identified long, flowy dresses as a major trend for 2020. They’ve already taken off in 2019, but there’s no doubt that this will be a defining trend in the coming year.
We saw three-piece suits everywhere on the runways, from Louis Vuitton to Burberry to Marc Jacobs, and whether worn as part of a matching set or styled on their own, vests will be a wardrobe staple this spring.
This matching set will never get old for us.
While there are plenty of jewelry trends on the horizon for 2020, oversize hoops are destined to be the most popular. They make a statement but are easy enough to incorporate into looks from day to night.
Sure, loafers and slide versions exploded a few years ago, but now there’s a new way to wear them. Heeled styles will replace flat versions and become the go-to shoes for the office.
We’ll be seeing a return to the lingerie-inspired elements in clothing across the board, from shape-defining corsets to bustier tops.
In the same vein as the aforementioned lingerie-inspired pieces, bras will come into full focus as tops instead of concealed underneath clothing.
Contrary to popular belief, social distancing actually comes with a whole host of different occasions – whether it’s working from home, your living room gym session or your virtual house party hangout every evening. And, as always, we’re here to style you for each and every one of these scenarios that you’ll undoubtedly be taking part in over the coming weeks. Keep scrolling to discover every wardrobe piece you’ll need…
- For your work from home weekday…
After the novelty of working in your pyjamas wears off, you’re probably going to find yourself craving a relaxed yet professional work-from-home outfit for your day to day. A loose shirt worn with an easy pair of denim jeans will have you feeling as put together and focused as you would in the office. And don’t forget to add some jewellery if you really want to impress on your web conference later.
- For your lunchtime stroll…
Taking a solo walk once a day is a great way to get in your daily exercise and refresh your mind. Plus, it’s also a good excuse to put on a breezy spring outfit! Go for a midi skirt in an uplifting picnic print and keep the rest casual with a cropped tee, a knit layer and a pair of comfy trainers.
- For lounging around the house…
Instead of sticking to solely joggers and baggy T-shirts, elevate your loungewear look by opting for a pair of snakeskin flares in an ultra-stretchy plisse material. For the rest of the outfit, stick to chic neutral tones and add some dainty gold jewellery.
- For your at-home workout…
Nothing will motivate you to smash your at-home gym session quite like a sleek workout outfit so this sleek red set is just what you need. Layer with a cropped T-shirt that you can take off once you get warm and, of course, you’ll need some clean white trainers so you don’t leave marks inside.
- For your virtual house-party…
Whether it’s on Skype, Zoom or our new favourite House Party app, pretty much all the social occasions we’re getting involved in right now are via web chat. All you’ll need here is a few cute top and earring combinations – you can wear absolutely anything on the bottom (read: joggers), no one will ever know!
- For your garden sun tanning…
We might not be jetting off to our favourite sun-soaked destinations for a while, but don’t let that stop you from bringing the Mediterranean vibes to your own back garden. Treat yourself to a blue and white porcelain patterned bikini – which you can take on holiday with you later – and if it’s not quite hot enough for tanning yet, cover up with some white shorts and a cropped polo.
- For your good night’s sleep…
And finally, bed time. To give this outfit a different feel from your lounge wear look, make sure to go for a chic matching set in a calming mustard and light blue floral print. If you want to feel especially extra, throw a coordinated robe on top and slip into some soft new socks for warmth.
Now you know what to wear, check out all these fun things you could be doing indoors…
While skinny jeans will never actually be out of style, there are a range of fresh, non-skinny silhouettes that continue to rise in popularity. Yep, we’re talking about styles like flared denim but also a recent favorite amongst the fashion and celeb world: full-length denim. This cut is in a straight fit, typically comes in a lighter wash, and bunches just slightly on top of the shoes. You may remember Hailey Bieber’s recent ensemble last month featuring the Khaite full-length jeans.
Sure, this silhouette is a far cry from the cropped skinny and straight jeans that we’ve been wearing over the last few seasons, but this is one denim style that will be that forward spin to any outfit in the 2020s. We bet the chicest people out there will give these jeans a whirl with pointed ankle boots now or low-heel strappy sandals when the temperatures start to warm up. To highlight this must-try denim trend further, we rounded up how fashion people are wearing full-length jeans now and how they turned up on the S/S 20 runways. Keep scrolling for more and to shop a few pairs as well.
