From Our Friends at Who What Wear: 5 Red Carpet-Approved Handbag Trends Everyone Should Try IRL

While I love shoes as much as the next person (seriously, my closet is overflowing with them at this point), it’s bags that I love most when it comes to accessories. There’s nothing I enjoy more than turning to the runway or the street-style set to identify the cool handbag trends we’ll soon be seeing everywhere (ring bags à la Chloé, anyone?). But to be honest, I often spot some of the chicest new silhouettes on the red carpet. And while you’d think most of these styles would be too fancy for your everyday life, I’m here to tell you that some top finds can seamlessly fit into your closet and work for both formal and casual occasions.

Red Carpet handbags

Ahead, you’ll find five handbag trends that stun on the red carpet and have the potential to be stunning on you as well. I promise there’s something for everyone here. Because when it comes to completing your perfect outfit, it’s in the (red carpet) bag.

From Our Friends at Who What Wear: What the Stars Will Wear to the 2017 Tony Awards

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.)

From Our Friends at Who What Wear: Easter-Ready Outfits Stylish Celebs Swear By

Lauren Eggertsen is an associate editor at Who What Wear. As a huge fan of trending items, unique styling techniques and It-girl aesthetics, innovative outfits are her forte. See which celebrity-inspired ideas you should try this Easter.

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?

The App That Totally Changed the Way I Shop

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.

This Socially Conscious Brand Supports Women in the Coolest Way

Who What Wear logo

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.
