25 Cool Finds I’m Obsessing Over Right Now

Welcome to the Shopping List series, a Who What Wear column where senior editor Kristen Nichols highlights the items that she has her eye on at the moment—from affordable finds to investment buys.

As a fashion editor, I constantly have my eye on the latest emerging brands, trends that are gaining traction, and new items that are dropping at retailers. It’s my job to bring you the coolest finds and special pieces I think deserve a place in your wardrobe, which is why I’m rounding up all of them here in a column dedicated to the pieces I would personally put my money behind.

I also have a specific take on style that blends my penchant for minimalism on some days and maximalism on others, so you’ll find styles across the board here. The common thread? A mindset for supporting amazing design talent and only investing in pieces I plan on wearing for years to come. Here, let me take you on a virtual shopping trip, on which I’ll highlight all of the pieces I think are worthy of adding to your cart.
