Pieces the Fashion Quarterly team are coveting right now

23 September 2021

Re-emerging from lockdown can't come soon enough—here are the pieces we'll be wearing upon our return to the outside world. 

Spring is here, the birds are chirping, and flowers are blooming. And with catwalks popping up everywhere from London to New York, we’re feeling inspired to ditch our lockdown loungewear in favour of key new pieces. 

Sarah Murray, Managing Editor

With the warmer weather approaching I’m already plotting my spring/summer wardrobe—an indulgence in nudes, whites, lights, and linens.

Although for the most-part I’m a pretty casual dresser, it’s well and truly time for me and my tracksuit to go our separate ways. I’m currently dreaming of some elevated wardrobe additions that will have me feeling pulled-together and polished.

Right now, I’m dressing and shopping for optimism—lusting after pieces that lift my spirits and remind me of sunnier days. And for the ultimate mood-booster: a bright bunch of blooms from one of my favourite florists.

I’m feeling nostalgic and what feels like forever dreaming of throwing on my jeans, slides, and a scoop neck, and catching the afternoon sun and a whiskey sour with my girlfriends at a bar. Casual, comfortable and classic. By my side will be my CEE CLEAR mini purse, my favourite accessory for when I’m on-the go.
