When shopping the high street, it can be all too easy to get stuck in a rut of going to the same places again and again. This is why I like to mix it up every now and then and revisit stores that I haven't frequented for a few seasons. For me this winter, this manifested in a browse of Jigsaw's, Whistles' and Karen Millen's new-in categories. Jigsaw, in particular, has taken on a new style identity in recent years, still holding on to its timeless approach to design but infusing pieces with contemporary energy via bold prints and unusual silhouettes.
Whistles' current collection is jam-packed with elevated basics that firmly fall under the low-effort category yet will add interest via a pointed collar or dramatically pleated fabric. I'm obsessed with the Nino chambray shirt, which would look achingly cool paired with the colour-match jeans, and the shearling-collar jacket, which will add retro appeal to your cold-weather outfits.
Karen Millen, meanwhile, should be your go-to for polished separates, particularly rendered in leather. The tan leather mac is sure to be a winner for many seasons to come. The tailoring is also worth checking out, whether you wear it for work or use it as a way to elevate your fave jeans. Ready? Scroll down to see and shop the Whistles, Jigsaw and Karen Millen items I can't get out of my mind.
