However much we try to wish away the first winter day, when we exhale to see clouds of cool air in front of our noses, you’re likely to find it that bit more bearable once you’ve shopped the timeless aesthetics in Whistles Autumn Winter collection.
Take a trip to their St Christopher’s Place store to surround yourself with warm shades of cinnamon, wine, tobacco, bitter chocolate and mustard, alongside neutral tones of navy, black, khaki and grey. Corduroy trousers in fawn are accompanied by a shearling jacket and cashmere jumper in complementary butterscotch shades.
Wander downstairs to the personal shopping suite and a dedicated assistant will uncover each piece further, selecting hues and ensembles that complement your personality.
The appearance of unexpected textures adds a playful edge to your style, and a contemporary 70s undertone gives each piece a feeling of longevity that’ll make you instantly want to add it to your wardrobe.
Imagine, military fatigues, razor-sharp tailoring and hiking boots teamed with soft sweaters and elegant overcoats. Hair is loosely pulled back or left undone and bags are worn in an unintended way: see the mock-croc crossbody worn as a lanyard.
The play-off between feminine and masculine shapes elevates the collection and accentuates the brand’s long-standing position as a must-visit for industry leading fashionistas.
Sequins even make a come-back, but this time, dialled-down and more relaxed than before. Similar prints that you loved (and probably lived in) for Spring Summer, remain favourites but are reinvigorated and recoloured for the season.
Whistles haven’t disappointed and we are certain you will fall for their ageless, effortless charm this Autumn Winter, one which ensures their pieces are reached for time and again.
