New Fall collections are late to hit retail this year, which might be intentional. With much of the northern hemisphere experiencing heatwave after heatwave, delaying the sale of warm wardrobe items makes good sense. That said, here are some items that have been winners on my clients recently, plus others that just caught my eye. Some items are discounted. Be sure to browse the colour and size options.

  • White House Black Market Mixed Lace Blouse: If you're after a soft and pretty white lace blouse to wear under a strict blazer or leather jacket, this is a great option. Not boxy, Edwardian vibe, and sufficiently opaque to wear with a regular bra. Or wear it on its own.
  • HOBBS LONDON Chrissie Hooded Trench Coat: Weatherproof trench coats with hoods that aren't belted at the waist are a rare find. One in a deep shade of orchid is even more rare. Here is an option that is beautifully made, A-line, and looks very polished. Impeccable quality. The back does not have a pleat. Fab side entry pockets. Comes in tomato red, and that one is heavily discounted. I have this in tomato red.
  • Tommy Hilfiger Women's Polka Dot Mock Neck Dress: An olive polka dot dress is another rare find, and this one was gorgeous on my client. The puffs and ruffles are subtle, and the belt detailing adds a nice bit of structure. A fab dress for a warm Fall day.
  • Boden Brushed Wool Coat: I haven't seen this in person yet, but the shade of shocking pink launched me into orbit. I have a few Boden coats and they've held up well so I'm optimistic about the quality. I love the slight A-line style of this one, and there ARE side entry pockets. Roomy fits.
  • Chaus Faux Wrap Midi Dress: Purple Mock Wrap Dress Fabness. My client looked incredible in this dress! Simple elegance. Very flattering. Polished. Good drape. Comes in burgundy.
  • Talbots Talbots Hampshire Ankle Pants - Glen Plaid: Substantial, classic, and comfortable. Can work on a curvier body type. Straighter body types need to size down,
  • LOUBEN Belted Cotton-Blend Sweater: This elegant belted sweater works well on a longer torso. Cotton-rich, comfortable, not too warm, and comes in colours.
  • Bos. & Co. Indie Waterproof Bootie: Waterproof Patent Bootie Fabness. Comfortable and lightweight. Pass if you need a roomy toe box.
  • Boden Velvet Midi Pencil Skirt: Paisley is having a fashion moment, and here's a patterned VELVET pencil skirt in a midi length, which is unusual. Comes in solid navy.
  • Cole Haan Original Grand Wing Tip Oxford Golf: Light blue oxfords with orange soles are unique. And these are WATERPROOF. Comfortable, beautifully made, and have a very gentle flatform. Pass if you have wider foot because they narrow at the toe box. You can barely see the orange soles, which are more subtle in person. Fab under wide full-length or cropped pants or jeans. Awesome with pantsuits too. Like a dressy sneaker. They perfectly match my light blue Furla and specs. These are mine! Comes in colours if you do a search.
  • Boden Elizabeth Velvet Coat: Wine Velvet Coat Fabness. A versatile length, dressy and chic, with handy side entry pockets. Check out the pretty back detailing, Comes in a bright orange paisley.
  • Theory Wide Leg Stretch Wool Trousers: These trousers look beautifully early to mid '90s to my eye, so with a good smattering of '80s before pants became low rise. Swooshy, comfy, and full length. I'm in, but in a non-earthy tone, and not quite as long.
  • Long Cardigan Duster: A versatile maxi cardigan that's wonderful over dresses and jeans. Comes in other neutrals.
  • Boden Five Pack Sparkle Socks: Gauzy metallic socks to wear with loafers, oxfords, clogs, pumps or sandals.
  • Boden Lace Cami Top: A pretty lace camisole that comes in a slew of interesting and rare colours. It has fab adjustable straps. Super soft jersey.
  • Boden Fitted Corduroy Blazer: Corduroy blazers have a fun '70s integrity, and this one comes in an '80s colour with pants to match. The fit does not have a lot of room in the shoulders. The greyed light blue is lovely too.
  • Boden Metallic Blouson Sleeve Top: Dressy metallic sweaters are hard to find, and this one comes in NAVY. I have my eye on it for my formal capsule. Comes in black.
  • Reiss Angie Rib One-Shoulder Sweater: After a year of deliberating, I finally ordered this top and a strapless bra to wear it with. It is GORGEOUS. Beautifully lightweight, luxe, polished and impeccable quality. I had to get used to the drape, but that took 5 seconds. The ribbed fabric is quite sheer, but the volume of the drape makes it opaque. It's short, so fab with skirts and wider pants. The one-shoulder silhouette sits neatly on the body and doesn't shift. It's the most alluring item of clothing I have, and I love it! Layers well under a jacket and coat too. Comes in colours on other sites.
  • Vionic Sellah Square Toe Loafer: A fably supportive, comfy, and on-trend loafer. Lots of cushioning and arch support. Comes in caramel, burgundy, and black. Roomy toe box. Can work on feet with bunions.
  • Vionic Willa Loafer: Supportive Flat Fabness. Great arch support. Very soft and comfy. Can work well for feet with bunions. The raspberry is lovely. Comes in neutrals.
  • Calvin Klein Women's V-Neck Printed Chiffon Sleeve Blouse: This top looks much better in person. It's knitted, and has sheer sleeves in the same pattern. Interesting! VERY comfy. Streamlined but not clingy. Works well on a curvy figure with a larger bust. Comes in neutrals. Size down.
  • Halogen Pleated Skirt: A gorgeous pleated skirt in an abstract earth-toned pattern. The pleats lie quite flat against the midsection. It has a matching top to create a two-piece dress. VERY comfy and fably swooshy. Size down.
  • KUT from the Kloth Jasmine Top: This floral blouse is a gorgeous mix of jewel tones and earth tones. It's sheer and will need a camisole. It looks great UNTUCKED, and the floral looks much richer in person.
  • AllSaints Two-Tone Hexagonal Carabiner Hoop Earrings: Interesting mixed metal hoop earrings that come in gold with silver trim too.
  • Nic + Zoe Marble Sky Button-Up Shirt: This marbled pattern is nicer in person, especially if you like light blue with brown. It's fably unique. The fabric is lovely, and so are the bracelet-length sleeves that showcase the wrist. Works well on a larger bust. Pleasantly fluid.
  • AGL Tracy Block Heel Pump: Moderately comfy dressy heels that are gorgeous on the foot. Sleek and architectural. A wider toe box than expected. Comes in black. They worked well for my client with bunions.
  • Eileen Fisher Posy Flat: Very soft and comfy flats that are quite bunion and orthotic friendly. Roomy toe box for a pointy toe. Comes in two more neutrals.
  • Boden Drawn Wool Coat: A beautiful dusty pink wool coat that is more cool-toned in person. Think guava. Soft to the touch. Lots of room in the shoulders, and a versatile longer length that isn't maxi. Very fluid, so you can layer underneath it. Excellent on a larger bust. Comes in navy.
  • Eileen Fisher High Waist Wide Leg Pants: Superbly comfy and swooshy wide leg pants that drape like a dream and feel so good on. Size down.
  • Madewell Garment Dye Baggy Straight Jeans: '90s Green Jeans Fabness. Darker in person. Runs big. Good on a curvier body type.
  • Spanx High Waist Flare Ponte Pants: My client took my breath away in these. Absolutely gorgeous. WOW! Girdling on the midsection and thighs. Streamlined, if you don't mind the tight fit above the knees. Very comfy, substantial, and polished. Very long hems. Plenty of length for Team Long Legs.
  • CONNECTED APPAREL Stripe Asymmetrical Tier Shift Dress: If you like to wear body-hugging bandage dresses and purple, this one is fabulous because the genius layers and striped fabric visually smooth out the silhouette despite the cling. The fairly substantial fabric is girdling too.
