I’ve Been a Shopping Expert for 15 Years—I Approve of These 24 New-In Buys

For a moment there, I thought all the new-season collections were stuck in customs as I impatiently sat clicking refresh on the new in pages last week, but—hey, presto!—they have landed, and boy, are they good. We all love the January sales for finding a steal, but nothing uplifts me more than a new season: fresh trends and a raft of dreamy pieces that mean spring is on its way.

I’ve spent the last few days filtering out the hottest new-in pieces so you don’t have to, and instead, you can click through my edit and snap up these perfect pieces before they go, from cult designer sunnies to key footwear shapes to take your wardrobe through to summer and the new names to know. Happy shopping!

It’s quite possibly the Italian in me, but I’m rarely seen without a pair of sunnies, even in winter, as they instantly add polish to even the most casual of outfits. This Celine pair is my absolute fave right now. 

Make a bright shirt one of the pillars of your wardrobe for spring. Mango has a great selection, and I’ve just added this orange one to my cart.

Arket puffer jackets are some of the best on the high street. This is one of its shorter versions that has a drawstring at the waist to create a slight peplum shape. It’s a great style if you want warmth without compromising on style. The brand just restocked this green version, which is one of the must-try colours for 2022.

Strappy sandals are here to stay, and this pair from Warehouse looks way beyond its high-street price tag.

Layering an oversized blazer over your sweater-and-jeans combo is one of this season’s most useful styling tricks. With so many on offer, it can be hard to choose, but I recommend investing in the Bea blazer by The Frankie Shop—the trapeze shape is unique. 

& Other Stories is known for quality knitwear, and when I saw this one in-store, it instantly caught my eye. The pattern gives an otherwise classic cardigan a modern feel that is equally timeless, so you will wear it for seasons to come.

As soon as I saw these jeans, I added them to my basket. The frayed waistband and embroidered knees hark back to some of my favourite pairs of jeans from the noughties, but you’ll be relieved to know they do not feature a hipster waistband!

As a new mum, I inevitably carry around everything but the kitchen sink. I always find a fun tote makes it all the more appealing. 

My love of baby-doll dresses shows no sign of waning. Aside from being unapologetically frou-frou, they can be quite comfortable and flattering, too!

Double denim is here to stay. Just add some sparkle to be one of the first to showcase one of spring’s key denim trends.

Florence-based designer Barbara Borghini is the brains behind these thick-soled stomping boots that are an influencer favourite.

This season, we are spoilt for choice with the amazing selection of luxe knitwear available, and this funnel-neck cashmere jumper by British label DeMellier London is the dream!

Corsets are back, and we have It label Miaou to thank for their revival. If you wore them the first time ’round and need some convincing, simply pair them with your favourite jeans and heels and an oversize blazer. 

I love getting dressed up even if its for mid-week dinner, but I always gravitate to throw-on-and-go dresses that are fuss-free. My mother had a dress like this in the ’90s, and whilst it’s pretty fab, the elasticated fabric makes it very versatile, too. Wear with tights and heels now or flat sandals on vacation.

Lockdowns are hopefully a thing of the past, but the focus on luxe loungewear and pj’s is here to stay. This silk pair from independent label Hesper Fox’s collaboration with artist Frances Costelloe is #loungeweargoals. 

There’s nothing like a box-fresh pair of trainers, and choosing this neutral pair means they are smart enough to pair with tailored trousers and denim alike.

If you missed out on the chance to buy the striped jumper of the winter by Totême, then fingertips at the ready. The blue and white stripes are super. Simply pair with stonewash jeans and loafers. It’s a no-brainer spring outfit.

I’m loving the kitsch take on ’70s crochet by London label Shrimps. The whole collection, in fact, in white and cornflower blue, is dreamy.

Prada recently announced its revenue had grown 40% YOY, and if you were wondering how the label did it, the Cleo bag has played a large part in re-establishing it as one of the It bag brands again. It’s practically perfect in every way, so I’m adding Cleo to my manifest board right away.

Nigerian designer Andrea Iyamah is based in Toronto and is fast becoming one of the new names to know. The brand’s unique designs are heavily influenced by Iyamah’s African heritage and celebrate women’s curves.  Shop the matching Behati Crepe Skirt (£174).

Whether you love them or hate them, platforms are officially back after Valentino and Versace made them their heels of choice on the runway, and if you want to give last spring’s dresses an injection of new-season style, then these boots are a no-brainer. 

If you’re always in a rush when getting ready, then bag yourself a jumpsuit. The ruffled neckline and belt make this one by Sea incredibly flattering.

When you find a dress that works as perfectly with tights as it does with bare legs, you’re on to a winner. This striped minidress is effortlessly cool.  Next up, the premium basics I really rate.
