Welcome to The Great Try-On. With fall on the horizon, we seized the opportunity to try on some of the best fall pieces from some of your favorite brands, documenting the process along the way. We believe that the most foolproof way to shop online is to see an item IRL and to read candid reviews, so we hope that this leads you to some successful fall purchases.
I know I’m not the only one who prefers to see what my potential purchases look like on a real person (and not, ahem, a stylized model) before going all in, which is why I’m doing my own version of a try-on haul: Who What Wear Collection edition. If you’re a casual WWW reader, you probably know that we launched a clothing line a few months ago. And if you’re a regular to the site, you’d know that the line is filled with elevated wardrobe staples, the kind of pieces that are exciting to put on in the moment but are meant to be worn for years and years. Believe me when I say that the quality of these pieces simply can’t be explained. It has to be experienced.
I won’t lie. I may have gone a little overboard and ordered every single cute thing I liked, but since we don’t have all day (and because no one wants to scroll through 20+ outfits), I’m editing down my favorites to just seven standouts. On paper, these may be on the more basic end of the spectrum, but once I tried them on, all I had to say was wow. From the cutout dress that’s already a hit on my Instagram feed to a luxurious ribbed-knit skirt set that I never want to take off, continue on to see the results of my try-on haul and to read my reviews of each piece.
