3 Affordable New-In Pieces That I'll Wear Every Single Summer


When it comes to shopping, I live by one rule and one rule only: that whatever I buy has to be worn on repeat for many seasons and years to come. In order to fulfill this criteria, I therefore have to fill my wardrobe with items that I truly love and feel excited by—whether it’s a moth-eaten psychedelic printed dress from the ’70s (yes, I have one of those and no, I can’t part with it) or a chic little find from the high street. In terms of affordable pieces that have stood the test of time in my closet, I have a few choice items from Warehouse that I continue to pull out, and it has made this store one of my more trusted go-tos when it comes to affordable bits I know I’ll get plenty of use of it. There’s a striped and knitted jumper and skirt co-ord I snapped up in 2018 that has proven to be a beloved companion each autumn, and looks far more premium than it’s reasonable price-tag. I have a black-and-white gingham sundress from Warehouse that I’ve packed for every single holiday and worn for countless BBQs and outdoor gatherings since 2019. The same goes for a shirred white crop top. 

This spring/summer, Warehouse asked me to curate an edit of their latest drop and I was all too happy to oblige. It gave me a chance to try a few new-in pieces on IRL (a much missed experience in these remote times!) and to share with you some of the best items you can buy from the British brand now. A few key pieces stood out to me as the kind I would repeatedly rely upon this summer and for many to come. Keep scrolling to see a handful of the best bits from Warehouse right now and shop my full edit here.

A white broderie anglaise dress is something that has been popular during the summer months for decades now. This big-collared beaut gives the idea some extra oomph, and makes more of a statement than most out there on the high street.

Oxford shirts never really go out of fashion, but right now the vibe is to wear them big and unbuttoned. Warehouse already has this style that fits the brief. Worn casually with jeans, this is a weekend look I can get on board with.

Wide-leg jeans are back in business, and I’ve always been a fan. These are supposed to graze your ankle but I’m 5’1” so everything falls that little bit longer. I don’t mind though, it helps lengthen my legs. I’d suggest ordering up from your regular size in this particular denim style.

My aforementioned Warehouse gingham dress reminds me a lot of this skirt, so I gravitated towards it. The tiered cut, frill and shirred waist give it a 1950s holiday lilt, but the more modern cut-out top pulls the look into the here and now.

This is a super comfy piece that could work just as well with a plain white tee, cosy knit or sleek bodysuit.
