5 ITEMS = 1 FOREVER WARDROBE
Is the best way to describe this collection from Winser London.
To mark their fifth anniversary, this beautifully British brand designed a collection that identified the 5 key pieces every busy woman needs at the heart of her wardrobe.
BRAVO….. I couldn’t agree more. I’m so happy to see brands still catering for the classic fashion market when fast fashion and trends are so high these days.
Just imagine an entire work-wear capsule wardrobe that covered all of your outfit needs in only 5 investment pieces. 5 pieces designed so classic they will work forever and made so well they will last forever.
And the quality of these pieces certainly exceeds their price tag.
The Forever Five will not only work together to create multiple outfits but will also work as a base across your entire wardrobe.
I have used all of these items outside of Work wear into either evening glam, blogging events and smart casual.
Winser London continues to be my go to Brand for work-wear and creating classic capsule wardrobes because this is a company that ONLY produces investment wardrobe pieces.
2 very important factors to consider when creating a capsule wardrobe for yourself or in my case for clients, is considering your Colour options and Shape styles.
Winser London provide a fantastic selection of colours in every item they make. The style of the piece is not the only thing that makes it a ‘forever’ item, the colour is very important to ensure it always suits you and your wardrobe, regardless of trends emerging.
The shape is also a huge factor to consider, depending on how you wear these items I guarantee they will work for all shapes.
There is also multiple style options in the Miracle dress, trousers and skirt to suit different body shapes too.
THE FOREVER FIVE
SHOP MY CAPSULE HERE:Miracle Pencil Skirt in Black, £89 / Oversized Boyfriend Jumper in Magenta, £89 / Lauren Silk Blouse & Bow in Ivory, £195 / Satin back wide crepe trousers in Black, £99 / Grace Miracle dress in Winser Blue, £150 – ALL WINSER LONDON
I chose my bottom items such as the skirt and trousers in Black as this is the neutral I wear most and will work with lighter/brighter tops tucked in. The Blouse is my best shade of white Ivory, you just can’t go wrong with a white blouse. A bright pop of my best pink had to be from the boyfriend Jumper which looks great with black. The miracle dress is an absolute staple I just loved in my best blue, Winser Blue. All of these items will not only work together for me but with the rest of my wardrobe. There are multiple colour options for you to do the same.
WHAT IS THE FORMULA TO THE FOREVER FIVE?
1. THE MIRACLE PENCIL SKIRT
WEARING THE BLACK MIRACLE PENCIL SKIRT, SIZE 10, £89
This is an AMAZING flattering skirt that EVERY figure can wear, it just depends on how you style your top half. I LOVE the thick stretch jersey fabric of this skirt with a hidden elasticated waist that pulls and holds you in so well.
It has a slightly tapered silhouette which is far more flattering than just straight or very tapered, feeling like you can’t walk or it’s too baggy at your knees. The simple pull on style means you can wear it high or low waisted. You can also play with the length depending on your height, it sits at or just above your knees but the hem allows you to lengthen the skirt if needed.
They’ve really thought of everything!
No zips, seems or details means a smoother more flattering fit around your hips and middle. No cellulite showing through this stretch fabric either…Finally!
To suit your body shape I would simply wear this to suit your waist line. Either high waist with tops tucked into or tops out such as peplums. Low waisted with knitwear or long tops out over the top.
The Miracle skirt is available in 5 classic colours. If this style really isn’t for you there is an A-line version also available.
Miracle knee length pencil skirt, £89
2. THE 3-IN-1 PUSSY BOW BLOUSE
This is the ultimate luxury investment for your work-wear wardrobe, the sumptuous silk blouse that does everything for every occasion. The bell sleeves, bow and soft stretch silk fabric make it effortlessly glamorous and easy to wear. I LOVE all the little luxury details to this blouse such as the mother of pearl buttons, detachable bow, pleat detail on the shoulder and turn back cuffs.
What I love most above this blouse however, is the versatility and wearability. You can wear this blouse 3 ways with either a pussy bow, plunging tie neck or no bow at all for a laid back look as shown above. I love the relaxed look of this blouse with the wide leg trousers and the glam high maintenance appeal of the pussy bow in the pencil skirt.
I’ll also be wearing this into the evening tucked into my leather pencil skirt with some killer heels, a clutch and rouge lips.
This blouse is available in 3 classic investment colours, Black, Ivory and pearl. I recommend Pearl for the softer colour ladies (summer/Autumn), Black for any clear or deep ladies (Winter), Ivory will suit everyone other than any ladies with grey cool hair (opt for black).
I recommend ordering this in a size smaller, I’m usually a Small but feel an XS would have been a better fit for me. The black is currently sold out, sign up to emails for stock notifications.
3. THE WIDE LEG TROUSER
HELENLEE LOVES ITEM
If you haven’t noticed from my Instagram lately, these trousers are my favourite piece of The Forever Five collection. This is purely because they are not only the item I have worn the MOST but they are super duper comfortable, versatile for everything in life and will give you the biggest bang for your buck (£99) AMAZING!
Laid back, polished work-wear is a big deal this season. The professional busy woman is taking a more relaxed style, making running around more comfortable while staying chic.
These pull-on wide leg trousers are so fluid and flattering thanks to a flat front, easy waistband and perfectly positioned side pockets. Easy to dress up or down for day or night.
Available in classic black and navy, £89
I’m styling my Black trousers with my blouse tucked in, open and relaxed (bow detached), black flat shoes and a tote bag OR with the V-Neck jumper below (tucked in) with black leather sliders, smart trainers and my black leather slouch shoulder bag.
4. THE OVERSIZED BOYFRIEND JUMPER
I didn’t have the jumper with me for the shoot so this is a pic from a previous blog post.
Number 4 is an absolute all year round investment if you purchase a great colour for you. Magenta and Fuchsia are very flattering bright pinks for me so I just had to add this pop of colour to my Forever Five.
It is perfect for a relaxed versatile style, with 11 colours to chose from there is something to suit everyone. You can wear it tucked in or out with the skirt or the trousers, flats or heels. The possibilities!
This looks great with my black trousers for a laid back luxe workwear style or tucked into the black pencil skirt with heels for a polished look.
5. THE MIRACLE DRESS
The best has certainly been saved for last, number 5 of ‘The Forever Five’ is the one and only Grace miracle dress, Winser London’s most popular and iconic items are their Miracle dresses.
This dress really is the Style essential that does everything, that power dress with ‘wow’ factor. I love the strong stretch jersey material, soft cross-over style with flattering ruching over the tummy area and the V-neck that stops just above your bust, with 3/4 length sleeves.
This dress does everything for your curves, I felt so confident and comfortable.
The Grace Miracle dress is available in 9 beautiful colours to suit your classic neutral, best pop of colour or soft pastel hues.
I opted for the iconic Winser Blue, one of my best shades of blue rather than black. It is bold, beautiful and certainly has wow factor.
If you’re going to invest in a colour I suggest reaching for one you feel amazing in as there is a lot of block colour to rock.
The Miracle dress collection includes many shapes and styles to suit all body shapes in a range of colours. If you’re going to invest in a forever dress then I suggest taking the time to get it right. Invest in a shape/style you will feel flattered and comfortable in and in a colour that accentuates the best of you.
