For the last two months I’ve really struggled to find anything noteworthy on the high street. The high summer collections could generally be summed up in one word: blah. But thankfully the first drops of AW14 are looking seriously fabulous, and now I have the difficult task of editing my wish list down to the very best pieces. Two designs I really need to draw your attention to this week are Warehouse’s toggle coat and Topshop’s lace dress. Both look like they come with £500+ price tags – the dress hints to Burberry Prorsum’s SS14 collection and the sheepskin-effect coat could easily be mistaken for an Acne design.
I’d wear the statement coat with Boden’s cosy rollneck sweater, MiH’s super-flattering peg leg trousers (check them out on the model to fully appreciate the cut) and a pair of pointed-toe heels. If you can’t wait until the temperature cools, however, you could always throw the fuzzy jacket over Topshop’s dress if you’re out in the evening. The washed-out pastel shades will look great againt a summer tan!
Do you like the look of this week’s wish list? Which designs are you coveting? As always, leave a comment and let me know…
