As a fashion editor, I’m always on the look out for those special pieces that truly make your wardrobe work harder. You know, those easy to wear classics you can turn to on any given morning and feel 100% confident in. Usually the sweet spot is somewhere between making you feel polished but still comfortable, like the perfect wide-leg trouser for example, or a chic knit dress. Sometimes, these items require a bit more of an investment, especially when you want guaranteed quality that will last for many seasons to come. Brands like Frankie Shop, Totême, or even The Row are overflowing with these kinds of wardrobe heroes. But realistically, we can’t all afford to fill our entire wardrobes with investment pieces, and so a huge part of my day to day job here at Who What Wear is focused on pinpointing those expensive-looking, hard-working pieces on the high street.
One of the places I know I can turn to again and again for just these kinds of items is Warehouse. A true classic of the great British high street- its fair to say its had its ups and downs, like any others in recent years. But I’m happy to report the collections are looking stronger than ever right now. Ok, it’s a huge edit online, and it takes some dedication to find the gems- but that’s why I’m here! I’ve spent hours scrolling through Warehouse’s entire edit and have pulled out twenty-five of the most expensive-looking, summer-ready pieces I’m backing for this season.
Of course, there’s plenty of beautiful dresses that could so easily pass for designer- whether you’re heading to a wedding or on holiday- and I’ve also added a number of their tailoring pieces as well, since I’ve heard such good reviews of it from my fellow editors across the industry recently.A personal highlight for me is the real leather fisherman sandals, which I recently invested in and are definitely the best I’ve found on the high street. They’ve just been restocked after an initial sellout so don’t say I didn’t warn you if you miss out again.
