Ever since I entered my 30s a few years ago, I’ve started to feel much more confident in knowing my own style. I’ve been a stylist and editor in the industry for a decade, and working in such close proximity to the latest trends has meant a lot of trial and error with different fashion identities over the years. Recently, though, I’ve come to embrace my classic taste and eschew passing trends for a wardrobe that feels altogether more timeless and versatile. I want my outfits to feel more polished and sophisticated, and I’m also tired of throwaway attitudes towards fashion. I’d much rather invest in quality pieces that will stand the test of time.
As part of this outlook, capsule wardrobe staples have become my speciality, and I spend an awful lot of my time researching and trying on the best classic pieces from high-end luxury designers to high-street retailers in order to report back on the very best styles. That being said, there’s one brand, in particular, that I turn to again and again for these elevated essentials, and that’s Calvin Klein.
In my opinion, where Calvin Klein really shines is its modern but classic womenswear, which draws from the brand’s rich archive, synonymous with iconic ’90s minimalism. So when I was invited into the newly opened Calvin Klein store in Westfield London, I wasn’t surprised by how incredibly chic it was and how much of the latest spring collection I ended up adding to my wardrobe wish list. You’ll also be pleased to discover that Calvin Klein are treating Who What Wear readers to an exclusive 20% discount in store until 10th April.
