The 9 Pieces I Want To Show You This Week

June 22, 2020 at 05:00AM


We created What to Buy Now to bring you a concise edit every Monday of the items we really love—from the high street, designer labels, vintage gems you can buy online and even charity-shop treasures. We’re constantly scanning the most stylish online stores so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you won’t miss a thing.

We know that your fashion requirements can vary massively from season to season, whether you’re looking for an immaculately tailored staple, an affordable sundress or the perfect pair of shoes. So not only will we cover all the bases, but as ardent believers in mindful consumption, we’ll make sure everything we include will look just as fresh in a year’s time as it does now.

Of course, we’ll also bring you those pieces that simply set your heart racing in a way that only fashion can. This week’s highlights include plenty of winning wardrobe gems, such as a a pair of pre-loved Prada sandals, a summer-ready linen shirt and a seriously statement midi skirt.
