I decided that 2020 was going to be the year that I would aim to upgrade a few of my wardrobe essentials. These are timeless pieces that I know will be worth the investment because my high street versions have been the proof of the pudding.
So for this month’s NET-A-PORTER edit, I thought I would focus on my upgrade list. NET-A-PORTER is always my go to destination when I am looking for investment pieces and unsurprisingly, I found exactly what I was looking for.
I found this beautiful trench coat from Reformation, with an accessible price tag of £290. It’s very similar to the longer Burberry ‘Chelsea’ which would also be an excellent investment. I love the slightly oversized fit and longer length (on me!) I am wearing an XS.
Also on my list, is a good quality black swimsuit. Now it may seem a little odd to be featuring swimwear in January, but there have been three occasions in the past two months when I have needed a swimsuit and I know that many of you head off for winter sun or spa days, so I figured now was as good a time as any. You’ll have to forgive the distinct lack of tan and sunny location and settle for my bathroom!
This one shoulder swimsuit is from Bondi Born , an Australian label specialising in impeccably cut swimsuits that are designed to flatter and sculpt the figure. They are made using eco-friendly materials so this brand fall’s under NET-A-PORTER ’s ‘NET SUSTAIN‘ platform which offers you the choice to invest in fashion and beauty products that have been consciously crafted. I really love the oversized knot and would probably wear this as a bodysuit in the summer.
The second swimsuit I tried was the Camilla swimsuit from HAIGHT, a Rio based brand that ticks all my boxes. The collection is all about clean lines and classic block colours. It’s a sophisticated and minimalist approach to swimwear which I think translates to longevity. The extra wide shoulder straps give comfortable support and coverage (great for anyone with a larger bust) and it has a really lovely low scoop back. I must mention the cut on the bottom as I know it won’t be for everyone, but after a spending two weeks in Bali pulling my swimsuit in to achieve a brown butt, I really wanted to find a swimsuit that had a flattering cut that did not dig in, ride up or go baggy. I have definitely found it. I think it’s a classic piece that I would wear for years.
And finally this gorgeous set from Varley, which is one of my favourite brands for gym wear. Cut from the label’s lightweight ‘Lolux’ fabric, Varley’s ‘Fountain’ animal-print sports bra is a perfect choice for low-impact workouts like yoga or Pilates.
