·4 min read

You may recognize Janet Gunn and Melissa Meyers as the duo who frequents Who What Wear to lend their style expertise. You might also be familiar with Susan Feldman as a regular voice on the site. While they each typically focus on sharing their own distinct perspectives, the Los Angeles-based trio has teamed up today for what we can only describe as one epic collaboration. The topic of conversation? The "going-out" fashion trends that are actually resonating for this new era of re-emerging into the world again.

All three women are excited to embrace elevated dressing again and have their eyes on several key trends to ease back into a going-out wardrobe. The below 10 themes touch on the season's freshest silhouettes, but true to form, each has styled them in a timeless, elevated way. Re-emerging into the world will no doubt look and feel different for everyone, but for Gunn, Meyers, and Feldman, these key pieces certainly feel the most relevant.
