The only thing we love more than a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe you can actually buy in one place. It seems like such an obvious thing for a clever brand to produce, yet it hadn't happened—until now. Our favourite luxe high-street store, Whistles, has gone and done the impossible. Famed for its fantastic coats, pleated skirts, super-soft knits and perfect dresses, Whistles has just debuted the first phase of its Signatures Collection. Our keyboards are on fire, and our wish lists are expanding. This is a collection of the label's biggest hits, all of which work harmoniously together to create the best—and easiest—autumn wardrobe around.

If there's one thing you know right now, it's that leopard print is the most A/W 18 thing to wear. Whistles has been seeing major success with its leopard-printed midi skirt (more on that below), but this jumpsuit is up next. This is the most laid-back way to wear the season's loudest print.
If you've long been a fan of Whistles's skirts (hands up if you've bought about five of the pleated ones), this should be the next option on your list. We'll steal the styling idea right from this shot and pair it with leather knee-high boots for the daytime and then swap in strappy sandals for after-work cocktails.
This might be the only chic, grown-up backpack on the high street. Whistles has helped countless working professionals smarten up their commuting game with this roomy number. Mock croc is a key handbag trend for the season, so we appreciate the combination of functionality and newness.
Every person we know buys their bikers from Whistles. They're being boxy and roomy enough to layer up, but because they're excellent quality, you'll find that the more you wear yours, the better it gets. We're loving the snuggly faux-fur option here.
What's better than a cashmere sweater? A cashmere sweater that's brown (aka the colour of the season) and won't cost you a million pounds. The slouchy style below is the perfect accompaniment to everything you already own.
You know that brown jumper we're excited about? It would be so good with a pair of straight-leg jeans. The higher waist and loose-fit legs on Whistles's Barrel jeans have made them a firm favourite for people with different styles. These are a true everyday winner.
Whistles has become a trusted inside source for the best-quality leather pieces around. That's why you'll often see the fabric being easily crafted into so many other pieces outside of the moto-jacket world—including this chic wrap skirt.
