Chain store round-up: 10 great buys to add to cart

I always really like doing these posts at the start of a new season as it’s the perfect time to do a wardrobe update, and it’s great to see what’s out there. And I have to say, chain stores have really delivered on the trend front, ticking the boxes as far as what’s trending, but also weaving in classics that are great for topping up our evergreen wardrobe. Here’s what you should definitely add to cart this month.


Update your sneaker wardrobe with this multipurpose, minimalist pair. It’s the kind of style that will work back with several different looks, and can also be worn all through the year.


Denim jackets are a great wardrobe staple to have on hand, so I’ve always liked having it in different washes to ensure maximum wear. This black shade is equally as versatile as its blue denim counterpart, but just has slightly more edge.


It’s all in the sleeve detail for me these days. This balloon sleeve style in a baby pink hue is just the thing to brighten up any autumn/winter look, and it makes a statement all at the same time.


A neutral midi dress is the basis for so many different looks that it’s definitely something worth adding to your shopping list. Pop on a jacket or a blazer to dress it up, or wear it with a crisp white shirt knotted, or simply throw on a knit.


The simplicity of this shirt guarantees that it can be worn to death. You can wear it dressed up with tailored pants, or dressed down with jeans, with myriad other uses in between.


You can never have too much denim in your life. With the regularity most of us wear jeans, it never hurts to have a few pairs up your sleeve. And this style is just the perfect silhouette to see you through any season.


I tend to collect lots of basics at the start of every season to form the basis of many of my day to day looks. And I know that a top like this will get many outings as it’s a pared back style that can easily work back with most outfits, but with elements such as the ribbed texture and high neckline, it steers it away from being anything but boring.


It’s hard to resist a great dress, especially when it looks like this. It’s a great neutral hue and the cinched waist is a flattering finish.


It’s always nice to incorporate some coloured knits into your autumn/winter rotation as it can get a little monotonous wearing the same hues over and over again. This burnt orange shade is such a good one to weave into an outfit to give it an injection of personality.


Love this knit top for its classic feel. It looks great worn back with jeans, but I think it would also play nicely with everything from pants to skirts and shorts. Plus it adds a nice textural element to any outfit.
