8 Things Worth Spending Your Whistles 20% Off Voucher On

In case you missed it, our gorgeous September issue is?now on shelves. One of the many wonderful things about autumn is that, for one, it’s the season of change: we transition into a new phase of the year (dare we say in preparation?for Christmas), our goals change kilter, and, importantly, our wardrobes get a winter revamp.

Designers pull away from the?traditional idea of “seasonal codes” as our Editor Rosie writes in this months editor’s letter, giving us more choice from colourful prints, giant knits, contemporary accessories, and “plenty of added attitude”. In celebration of September – our big fashion issue – we’ve teamed with WHISTLES to offer you 20% off your new season wardrobe so that you can buy the giant knit, wear the colourful prints, and give yourself added attitude as we approach the new month. Here are our favourite picks from the new season collection at Whistles.com

The Denim Investment

The High Waist Barrel Leg Jean

Price: ?119

Why we love them: a high waisted silhouette will always be a favourite in our books because of its wearability: chuck an oversized jumper on for the perfect combination of comfort and sophistication, or tuck in a fitted shirt or t-shirt for the perfect off-duty model look. What’s more, the barrel leg is a flattering style to try whether you’re tall or petite.

The Wardrobe Statement

The?Mondana Spot Jumpsuit

Price:??179

Why we love it: Modern women are chasing clothes that are comfortable enough to carry us through?the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, which is why boiler suits are the perfect wardrobe solution.?Just like when?Cinderella?found her glass slipper, you’ll know when you find the perfect B-suit. It will sit comfortably on your body – not too tight and not too loose – hug your frame nicely but give you enough room to manoeuvre throughout the day. We love the functional dark colour

Sophisticated top half and pretty tailored pants, all in one? Boiler suits are very functional to have in your wardrobe year-round; especially one like the Mondana?Spot Jumpsuit in a dark colourway and dot detail.

The Luxury Buy

Ultimate Sheepskin Gilet

Price:??689

Why we love it: Gilets are THE aw17 accessory: the no-sleeved coverup is the perfect mid-season wardrobe investment; ticking all the right boxes when it comes breaking away from summer and settling into autumn and winter. We love how luxurious and soft this gilet is, and the colour is versatile so that it can be added to almost any outfit or colour combination.

The Basic Skirt

The Arpi Wrap Buckle Skirt

Price:??139

Why we love it: Kilt-style skirts return again and again because they’re easy to wear – with or without tights – and are very functional. Bonus points for the minimal gold detailing in the belt and buckle.

The Knitwear Essential

The Chenille Funnel Neck Knit

Price:??169

Why we love them:?ICYMI, polo necks are here to stay for AW17?which is why now is the perfect time to stock up. Nothing says comfort quite like an oversized, soft polyester knit for cool mornings and chilly evenings. The contemporary balloon sleeves are a nice modern addition to the classic oversized sweater, too.

The Cosy Must-Have

Yara Faux Fur Cocoon Coat

Price:??335

Why we love them: Doesn’t dark navy look very chic? This caught our eye instantly, and the cocoon shape is very flattering for every body type and shape. Team with loose jeans and a statement t-shirt for a look that’s effortlessly cool (and very Instagrammable!)

The It Girl Purchase

The Athena Face Print Tee

Price:??65

Why we love them:?Graphic t-shirts came back with a vengeance this year from the runways of Dior and Gucci to Chanel and Topshop. This T will fit nicely into your 9-5 wardrobe or as part of your perfect chill out weekend wardrobe.

The Investment Piece

The Floral Jacquard Coat

Price:??519

Why we love it: Every new season wardrobe deserves a lifetime piece and for us, this floral?jacquard coat ticks all the right boxes.?The slim-fit overcoat features a beautiful floral jacquard design, a button fastening and a long length.
