We’ll admit that searching for the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be quite the challenge. Considering that this woman brought you into the world, raised you and has loved you unconditionally, the pressure to find something appropriately thoughtful is pretty high. In an effort to spark some worthy gifting ideas within you, we Who What Wear and Byrdie editors decided to team up and brainstorm what we’ll be giving our moms this Mother’s Day. As a group of people who are always in the know when it comes to the latest and greatest items on the market, it’s safe to say our opinions are trustworthy. From luxurious skincare devices to sparkling earrings, these are the items we all can’t wait to hand to our moms come May 14.



Lauren Eggertsen is an associate editor at Who What Wear. As a huge fan of trending items, under-the-radar brands and timeless basics, trying to predict what her favorite celebrities will wear to awards shows is one of her favorite pastimes. Find out what she hopes to see her favorite actresses wear on the red carpet this year at the Tony Awards.

Tony Award fashion predictions

The 2017 Tony Awards are right around the corner, and we’re sure to see some big personalities walk the red carpet with that Broadway-bred confidence and pride. As a fashion editor, one of the many odd things I like to do in my spare time is try to guess what some of my favorite actresses will show up wearing on the red carpet. Naturally, this year is no different, except for the fact that I’m sharing my guesses with you here.

Based on their personal style, past red carpet attire and my personal favorite items on the market at this moment, I assigned a trend and a specific dress to each of the Tony-nominated actresses below. From the unconventional (hello, jumpsuits and two-piece gowns) to embroidered florals, sheer details and timeless classics, take a moment to look at the formalwear trends that are making loud statements in the world of fashion right now.

And, of course, feel free to venture a few guesses of your own. (Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until showtime on June 11 to actually see how right or wrong we are.)



Seoul Fashion Week

Known for its creativity and playfulness, Seoul Fashion Week always leaves us with serious style envy, and the F/W 17 shows were no different. On the runways and on the streets, we saw countless Korean models, street-style stars and editors from all over boldly showing off their unique senses of style, starting fun new trends we can’t wait to test out for ourselves. While some of the trends we saw are definitely not for the sartorially faint of heart, the five picks our editors selected for you here are more than approachable. From menswear-inspired separates to the one layering piece you need this season, our favorite new Korean street-style trends are guaranteed to earn a place in your heart (and your wardrobe).

Easter Dressing from Who What Wear

Easter may not receive as much hype as Christmas or New Year’s Eve, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less deserving of a head-to-toe new look. After all, the sun is out, the flowers are blooming and it’s finally time to ditch those heavy winter layers. To that end, no matter what’s on your agenda (be it attending a church service or spending the afternoon at an elegant brunch with friends and family), I’ve found a seriously stylish outfit for you by pulling some divine inspiration from fashion-forward celebs like Victoria Beckham, Emily Ratajkowski and Lupita Nyong’o. There’s a look you’ll love, no matter your personal style (there’s even a look with jeans in the mix). And the best part about these holiday-inspired ensembles? They each only require three pieces to create—and anyone can do that, right?

Who What Wear, Nordstrom App

Lauren Eggertsen is an Associate Editor at Who What Wear. As a huge fan of trending items, under-the-radar-brands and timeless basics, innovative shopping apps are a must in her busy life. Find out how the Nordstrom app changed the way she shops for the better. 

Think back to a time when you were flipping through a magazine, Instagram or street-style blog and you came across an image of a product you absolutely could not live without. Just as you got giddy at the thought of you wearing said item, you quickly realized that you had no idea where to look to even begin to hunt it down. Well, Nordstrom has just come up with a solution for those relatable and torturous moments with a new scanning feature on their shopping app. All you have to do is take a photo of the thing you like, upload it to the app and Nordstrom will scan the image to curate a stylish selection of products that are either exact matches (which happened to me!) or extremely similar, at all price ranges.

After just testing it for the first time, I can assure you that as someone who curates a strong selection of product for consumers all day long for a living, this app is top-notch and has changed the way I shop forever. The ease and efficiency of the feature are unparalleled and if you are as into inspiration pictures and celebrity style as much as I am, this app will quickly become your new best friend.

Treasure & Bond Leather Jacket

In honor of International Women’s Day, we want to take this time to highlight the incredible Nordstrom brand Treasure&Bond. As one of the many ways the company supports nonprofits throughout the year, Nordstrom donates 2.5% of its net sales to organizations that empower youth. This means that whenever you purchase an item from this beloved label−whether it be on-trend denim, stylish hoodies or go-to ankle boots−you’re doing good. And that’s something we can definitely get behind here at Who What Wear HQ.

From February 1, 2017, to January 31, 2018, Treasure&Bond will support YWCA in both the U.S. and Canada. In the U.S. specifically, funds will go toward the organization’s TechGYRLS initiative, a program that empowers girls in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Previous beneficiaries of Treasure&Bond donations include Girls Inc., another notable leader in female empowerment that Nordstrom continues to support in various cities across America.

In our opinion, there’s no better way to celebrate this important day than by giving girls the opportunities they deserve. If that means purchasing some of the incredible products from Treasure&Bond, consider it a bonus.

White Ankle Boots

Once considered a faux pas, white ankle boots are now seen as a stylish update to the classic booties you’ve worn for seasons. Wear yours with a cool pair of step-hem jeans or a chic asymmetrical skirt.

Sure, the casualization of workwear is a thing oft lauded as a godsend for modern office life (we definitely aren’t complaining), but international fashion fixture and businesswoman Caroline Issa reminds us that keeping the pro in professional has its perks, too.

Who What Wear's cofounder Hillary Kerr

Our fall fashion curator Hillary Kerr, cofounder of Who What Wear, returns with hilariously wise style advice, social media tips and stories about her brushes with celebrities, on- and offline.

What are you looking forward to wearing this season? Are you planning to shake up your look in any particular way?

I’m really, really, really ridiculously excited to buy a new coat, mostly because I haven’t invested in one in a couple of years and feel like it’s time to do so. The textured Rebecca Taylor coat that’s in my Who What Wear guide is definitely on my list. Its fringed details make it seem like something Stevie Nicks would have worn while working on Rumours, and I appreciate the fact that it’s neutral and will go with just about everything in my closet. Additionally, I adore all of the faux fur outerwear options from Shrimps; they have so much personality and look so cheerful, which one needs desperately in the dead of winter. I also just purchased a pair of flared cords from The Great, which is one of my favorite new brands. The pants are crazy high-waisted but still super flattering and modern somehow. This purchase is rather outside the box for me because I wear pants extremely infrequently (basically never). Now, most people don’t hear “pants” and think “shake up,” but trust me when I say it’s totally wild for me.

What makes a great fall outfit?

Layers, layers, layers, layers and more layers! Also, texture! The best thing about fall is the fact that the cooler weather calls for layered outfits, which are infinitely more interesting to look at than, say, a simple summer slipdress. Embrace the season by adding texture (like suede, chunky knits or even fringe) and layers galore.

How did you select the pieces you chose for the Who What Wear Nordstrom edit?

First and foremost, the pieces had to feel spot-on for the season, whether that meant an incredible fringed coat that subtly nods to the ’70s or a casual take on the ’90s grunge trend with a boxy, buffalo-check jacket that could have come from the set of Cameron Crowe’s Singles. (One of my favorite movies, not that anyone asked!) Secondly, they needed to be versatile; the sort of items that can be styled in loads of different ways and worn both now, while the weather is still mild, as well as deep into winter, with just a few styling adjustments.



Who What Wear co-founder Hillary Kerr shares a cameraphone photos with a model

Hillary Kerr, co-founder and editor of Who What Wear, is our guest clothing curator this fall. And we couldn’t be more excited about her selections. Kerr chose pieces that offer that urbane femininity evident in her signature style, which often includes floral skirts, leather jackets, pretty blouses and cinched waists.

If you feel like your seasonal wardrobe could use a little oomph, look no further than this media entrepreneur with a yen for celebrity fashion. Here’s what every closet needs for fall, in Kerr’s words.

1. A sleek sheath
“There’s something so inherently elegant about a sleek sheath, especially one in a rich, autumnal hue. This Ted Baker London option is elevated by an embellished neckline, while the below-the-knee hemline makes it an ideal choice for the office (just add a sharp blazer) or your off-duty events (especially when styled with a cropped leather jacket).”

Theory Eldora Glen plaid vest2. An oversized vest 
“A long or oversized vest, like this one [from Theory], is a smart third piece to invest in right now. It adds significant interest to an otherwise simple outfit and can really help transition your closet into the cooler months. Wear it over a sleek, minimalist dress and styled with flat oxfords now, while the weather’s still warm, then pair it with form-fitting fall staples—like a turtleneck, slim pants and boots—when the autumn air gets brisk.”

3. A textured coat
“It’s all about texture, texture, texture this season, and what better way to embrace the trend than with this stunning fringed coat [from Rebecca Taylor]? It will add a little bohemian luxury to your favorite denim-and-T-shirt looks on the weekend, but also works with more feminine pieces, like a little black dress. The coat is one of those low-fuss, high-impact essentials that’s on every editor’s shopping list…including mine!”
