Imagine you have the chance to step inside a fashion editor’s closet. What would you find? There’s no doubt you’d spot some of the season’s biggest trends like leopard jeans, chain-link necklaces, and ’80s silhouettes—which we have all been quick to adopt this fall. But what about pieces that have been in their closets for years and years?
This is exactly what I asked my fellow Who What Wear editors to share, and I found out exactly which closet staples they have been wearing for almost a decade. Managing editor Michelle Scanga has been layering on a sentimental piece of jewelry since she received it on her 21st birthday. Fashion editor Lauren Eggertsen and assistant editor Anna LaPlaca both agree that Converse sneakers are essentials that deserve a permanent place in their wardrobes. As for my most loved closet staple? I can’t stop wearing an investment bag I picked up in Paris when I lived there years ago. Scroll on to see and shop all of our editors’ closet staples, which you’re sure to spot each of them wearing again very soon.
