In Partnership With Winser London

With the easing of lockdown we can look forward to socialising once again, and perhaps even working in a people-filled environment. Whichever form of interaction it is, a wardrobe reboot is definitely required. Here, we’ve put together a considered and classic capsule wardrobe, courtesy of Winser London, so you can sail back into civilisation with sartorial aplomb… 

Spring is signalling for a wardrobe refresh and in a world of sustainability, what could be better than beautiful versatile pieces that will transcend the seasons?! 

Cue, Winser London. The brand have searched far and wide for surplus luxury yarns which have been left unused and curated a limited exclusive collection which has the ability to ease you out of lockdown with style and confidence.  All their pieces boast the type of quality and craftsmanship you’d expect from big-name luxury brands, yet are offered at more affordable price points. They’ve thought of everything, too. From cosy, cashmere jumpers which have plenty of long-lasting appeal, to the effortlessness of an over-sized boyfriend shirt, and sumptuous silks fit for brunch or the boardroom. These forever pieces are perfectly in-sync with our need for more conscious approaches to fashion, buy less, choose well and make it last.

If you’re heading back to work for the first time in over a year, you’ll want a look that’s polished and put together. This  luxurious woven crepe blazer will make a power-dressing statement with its defined shoulders and sculpted waist. Inspired by menswear tailoring, it also boasts a double vent at the back, functional pockets and contrast lining in the pocket. Team with white tee, louche shirt and some pull-on faux leather trews for a look that insists you mean business.

Brunch With Friends…

The minute that first e-invite or calendar invitation lands, the dressing dilemmas begin. What to wear for your first post-lockdown soirée? Nothing too try-hard or contrived. Nothing that someone else is likely to be wearing. The answer? Everything that you can wear again.

Think easy, sumptuous silk shorts and cosy  cashmere jumpers – together they’re the epitome of smart casual chic. They encapsulate laidback luxe which is exactly how we’d like to emerge from our lockdown fashion slumber.

Off-Duty Cool…

Consider this your weekend wear. Those separates that you throw on in the morning without much thought, and which manage to transform your look to effortlessly stylish, instantly.

An oversized boyfriend shirt is the epitome of chic, you can size down and wear it tucked in, or buy it as oversized and wear it as a dress. Its versatility is boundless.

Plus, all Winser London’s shirting has been designed within their new passion for the circular economy, finding beautiful fabrics left over from designer runway shows. So it’s easy on the eye and on your conscience.

And Finally, Luxe Loungewear

There’s longevity in luxury loungewear. These co-ords are top of our wishlist, and conveniently come with a considered twist. They’re made from recycled cashmere and sustainable merino wool, which together result in the most sumptuous fabric, with the softest touch. The jumper has a deep V neck, and statement ribbed cuff and hem details, while the matching bottoms have a super comfy draw-string waist.
