We Tried On The Most Amazing Pieces At Whistles

We Tried On The Most Amazing Pieces At Whistles For Fashion Week (And Normal Life) So You Don’t Have To

The Debrief: Fashion Week is intimidating to dress for, but Whistles has our back.

Getting dressed for London Fashion Week is intimidating. Imagine being in a room with a hundred women who live and breathe clothes. A quick glance and they’ve judged the nuance of your sleeve length, the quality of your coat and the overall price of your wardrobe. With fashion week less than a week away, the pressure is on. Thank the Lord for Whistles. 

Hangover-Friendly Joggers

Harper Funnel Neck Knit, £110.00, Luxe Jogger, £80 

Post binging on free drinks and dropping $$ on a spenny Uber home, these marl track pants will be a life savour. Structured enough to look like trousers (not gym gear), but comfy enough to feel like you’re still on the couch. 

Super Flattering Trousers

Jocelyn Denim, £95, Tia Cotton Cropped Trouser, £140, Cornel Suede Point Pump, £140

These navy trews fit like a dream – they nip in at the waist and crop just above the ankle. Not as wide and ungainly as some culottes, they are easy to wear with heels or sneaks, depending on how hardy your soles feel that day. Add a bomber, and you’re good to go. 

The Jacket That Will Fit Under A Winter Coat 

Denim Kick Flare Jean, £95

It’s bitterly cold right now and while we’d like to think everywhere has central heating, to be real it’s England, this is not the case. Rather than shrug on a cardigan, a lightweight oxblood bomber makes for an LFW-approved alternative to a bobbly sweater. 

The Spring Dress You Can Wear With Layers

Kezia Cord Belted Shirt Dress, £130, Rosa Double Trim T-shirt, £35

Like Jay-Z, Whistles literally put a ring on it. This corduroy mini dress is a dream to style with as you can wear it over a shirt or polo neck in the winter with boots and tights, or, come spring, let your arms and legs breathe. 

Rich Girl Leathers

Taylor Fluted Sleeve Knit, £195Denim Kick Flare Jean, £95, Arden Tassel Flat Point Shoe, £119

High-shine at half the price of a designer leather jacket? Yes, please. Still not exactly cheap as chips, it’s a piece that makes you want to repeat ‘cost per wear, cost per wear’ until you get to the till. 

Winter’s Answer To Off-The-Shoulder

Cotton Modal 3/4 Sleeve Basic, £35Luxe Jogger, £80Cornel Suede Point Pump, £140

Cold shouldering is still cool, but the flu is definitely not on my agenda. Take this summer trend into winter with Whistles’ long-sleeved shoulder-grazer.
