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.
