From Coats to Knits, We Want Basically Everything in This New High Street Drop

Sponsor Content Created With Karen Millen

We don’t know about you but when shopping for autumn/winter 20 we’ve been trying to find pieces that we can enjoy now— that bring a little brightness to our days, but also, in part because most of our current time is spent inside, pieces that go beyond this season. We want pieces that will work into spring and the years to come as well. That means investing in both classic, quality staples, and joyful pieces we genuinely love, and will wear again and again.

Categories we’re loving right now (and we know you are too, thanks to our data on what you’re reading about, and shopping through Who What Wear) include outerwear, loungewear, autumn classics like knitwear, and dresses, of course. We also predict that we’re about to see a rise in sales of sparkles, if only for their mood-boosting properties— we may be heading into a period spent mostly at home but we’re an optimistic bunch, aren’t we? Plus, whoever said we can’t dress up in a feathery dress and sparkly suit for a date with our sofa. 

Let us, then, direct you to one of the new high street autumn/winter collections that’s ticking off each of these categories, and then some. Karen Millen’s extensive new drop is full of covetable pieces we’ve been steadily adding to our seasonal wish list as it’s been hitting the site. Honestly, we could have done a whole article dedicated to just the coats (we implore you to have a good old browse through them all online if you’re still in search of the ideal style), from leather trenches to cosy borgs that could easily pass for designer.

There’s also plenty of luxe loungewear co-ords perfect for the upcoming months, and classic tonal tailoring and trans-seasonal dresses (just add knee-high boots) to make us all feel a little more put-together after wearing joggers on repeat. The just-dropped party wear is getting us excited about dressing up again and, for now, we’ll certainly be indulging in the zoom-worthy blouses for the inevitable upcoming digital festivities. Not to mention that so many of Karen Millen’s trend-led styles are now included in their curve collection as well.

Keep scrolling, then, to see our favourite pieces from this new collection. Happy shopping!
