I recommend a fair few things here on the blog and I thought it would be interesting to share the items that have been the most popular among all of you.  For the most part, I haven’t been surprised by the items that you’ve loved the most. They are the pieces that form core wardrobe staples and do double-duty one way or another. But there are a few surprises that I unearthed when going through the numbers! I find the data quite insightful in framing the type of content that I think you’ll like.

So here are the top 10 most-loved items by you:

Mango Relaxed Khaki Pants

If I wasn’t in jeans, I’d be in these pants. I bought these before the pandemic hit us all hard and these became my trusty WFH trousers. A lot of you bought these for the same reason too! They’re incredibly soft, in a go-with-anything khaki hue and are a comfortable relaxed cut.

Everlane White Straight Leg Jeans

These white jeans have been an amazing discovery this year. My fellow pear-shaped pals have found the curvy version of Everlane’s best selling cheeky straight cut jeans to be a real winner. They’re incredibly flattering with a mid-high rise, the white denim isn’t see-through and they go with just about everything!

Karen Millen Tailored Dress

Now I’m not at all surprised that this dress has made the most popular items list. I receive so many DMs and questions from you all about sizing and fit and equally, I receive a lot of messages from many of you sharing your positive feedback having received the dress.

It’s a magically cut dress that is truly transformative when worn. A must-have for anyone who works in an office.

Gucci (Mens) Belt

Opting for the mens version of this iconic belt has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my wardrobe! I’m not surprised with how popular it has been among many of you who have reached out to me after you’ve bought it to say that it was totally worth the splurge. 

While you’ll see lots of bloggers promoting the thicker 4cm width belt, the mens version is a tad thinner at 3cm and a little less ‘in your face’.  It’s an accessory that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wearing to both work and when off-duty.

Reiss Knit Dress

As far as knit dresses go, this one sits at the very top of my all-time favourites. The draping, the colour, the cut – it’s an incredible dress that does double duty for both work and off-duty dressing when you want to look a bit dressier. I would even wear this to an A/W wedding, it’s the perfect neutral canvas.

Reiss Draped Knit Top

The top version of my favourite knit dress is just as dreamy. I opted to get it in white so that I could easily style it with the other pieces in my wardrobe. It’s a sophisticated cut with its asymmetric neckline that is also an extremely cosy and soft knit. A fair few of you baulked at its hefty price tag, and rightfully so, but a lot of you have reached out to let me know that you glad you made the splurge given how amazing the top is!

Acne Studios Scarf

My oversized Acne Studios scarf is deliciously oversized so it doubles as a wrap when I’m sitting at my desk and the grey hue goes with everything. And, from a look at my stats, a fair few of you agree! Considering how often I’ve relied on this scarf to keep me warm when out and about and wrapped around me while working at my desk, it’s a no-brainer as one of the best luxury purchases I made in 2020.

Designer bag inserts

I found these bag inserts over on Etsy for a fraction of the price that the majority of bag inserts typically retail for. I shared these over on my Instagram stories and I’m so surprised at how many of you picked these up for yourselves! So many of you loved these too!

If you have a larger bag, I cannot recommend these enough. The compartments keep the interior of my bag organised and the organisers help my bags to retain their shape while being stored.

Everlane Suede Ankle Boots

I can’t say I’m shocked that these Everlane ankle boots were much loved by you all this year. They truly are the quintessential boot – the heel, the premium suede, the hue, the overall look – they’re the perfect ankle boot.

Brown Overcoat

The last best seller on this list is this brown coat… well not this exact one because it’s sold out, but the dupe that I found has been a surprise hit and incredibly popular! A lot of you have messaged to let me know that the dupe is fantastic quality and I’m so pleased to have found a similar item for one of my much-loved pieces in my wardrobe.
