UK Girls Won’t Go Near These Fall Trends

Almassi’s looks are rooted in classic silhouettes and buzzy designers like Rixo and Ganni but her outfits are also fun. Her taste is experimental and she’s certainly not afraid of bold prints and colors, or trend-forward pieces like feather-embellished pants or ‘80s-inspired shapes. Like I said, the epitome of It-Brit style.

But with her daring attitude when it comes to fashion, where does she draw the line on trends for the fall season ahead? To find out, I asked her to weigh in. Ahead, Hannah Almassi is breaking down the trends she won’t touch for the fall season and highlighting some of the big trends that she’s already wearing on the streets of London.

Fashion Insiders Never Wear These 5 Trends in New York

This week in New York, there has been an exceptionally stylish set of tourists who’ve descended on the streets, the subways, your ride shares, the hottest restaurants in town, etc. Obviously, they’re here working fashion week, and it’s hard not to focus on what they’re wearing.

What to Wear to an Interview: 9 Looks to Score Your Dream Job

We’ve spent time discussing the perfect outfit for an interview (down to the intricacies of what kind of hairdo one should adopt), and while we feel like we’ve provided some helpful advice, it’s also fair to say there’s no rulebook for this kind of thing. So we figured we’d dig up some inspiration for you. Inspired by street style’s coolest women—and armed with some excellent industry advice—we have laid out four different outfits to demonstrate dress code perfection for different types of interviews, from formal to chill. Basically, anything that could end up in a dream job offer will be benefitted by a confidence-boosting, personality showcasing ensemble. No rush jobs or last-minute sweat-patch nightmares here.

Style Notes: It’s all well and good having the correct outfit on underneath, but what if you’re meeting outside or in a freezing air-con hub? Best to make sure that your coat game is strong. A lightweight spring trench in a nontraditional hue works on both practicality and stylistic levels. 
Style Notes: Don’t feel like you have to swear off trouser suits just because of the connotations that come with them—try to find one that feels true to your personal style. Even an artfully dishevelled bun can help make a sombre suit look cool.
Style Notes: For casual offices, do stick to the relaxed side of smart if you’re wearing tailored trousers. The addition of a skinny scarf and a raglan jersey top will strike the perfect balance between on-duty professional and youthful media world. Expert Tips: “[Candidates should wear] something that demonstrates a knowledge of what is happening in the fashion world but that highlights their own personal style at the same time.” — Nina Garcia, Elle U.S.
Style Notes: You never know how far you’ll have to trek across an office in front of an entire team, or the traffic and public transport disasters that may await you. Pick awesome shoes, of course, but pick shoes you really can go the distance in. Shiny black flats will often win out.
Style Notes: Don’t ever sacrifice professionalism. Chic tailored separates are always a good bet, especially paired with stylish kitten heels or flats. Expert Tips: “What you wear to an interview is far more important than people think. What you’re wearing communicates who you are before you even open your mouth. It’s just as important to look polished as it is to be articulate, in my opinion. The biggest mistake that most young girls make when interviewing for a style-related job is that they often try to be so trendy they end up sacrificing professionalism.” — Katherine Power, Who What Wear
Style Notes: Don’t feel restricted to dresses or trouser suits only; well-chosen, super-slick, perfectly fitted separates can really look the business.
Style Notes: A clear closet and a clear idea of what you’re wearing (fully steamed and ready to rock) will give you a clearer mind on the big day. Go one step further and allocate the right underwear for the pieces you’re wearing—this will save you time and any potential fidgeting.

6 Things You Definitely Need to Know About Diamonds

When the team at Tacori invited me to visit their atelier, perched on a bougainvillea-lined street in Eastside Los Angeles, I felt like I had won a contest. As a self-proclaimed diamond girl, getting an inside look at where Tacori’s pieces are designed and made is probably how regular people feel about being backstage at a HAIM concert. Upon arrival, I was invited to stack on as many infinity bands as my fingers could handle, and as I layered pendant necklaces, I fantasized about having such a luxe stash in my jewelry box IRL.

And for the record, I’m not the only one who has a mad thing for diamonds here at Who What Wear: Our co-founder, Hillary Kerr, is also completely infatuated with excellent jewelry. Below, watch our catch-up with Nadine Tacorian, COO and design director of the Tacori jewelry empire, as she answers our most pressing questions about all things diamonds—and scroll down to hear about the launch of our Who What Wear x Tacori jewelry collaboration we finally get to hint about.
