The Autumn Collection from Phase Eight

August 23rd, 2014


The Autumn collections are coming thick and fast, and this Saturday I’ve decided to turn my attention to the fabulous new collection from one of my favourite High Street brands, Phase Eight.

Phase Eight can always be relied on for bringing class and elegance to the table. They understand the need for dresses with sleeves, always have lengths which are not thigh revealing, and have designs that step some distance away from what the rest of the High Street is reveling in. They also take cues from the decades of fashion that I love, the bias cut evening dresses from the 1930s in their Collection 8 range, and the full skirt and more fitted styles of the 1950s in their mainline collections.

This season, I think there is a definite emphasis on the romantic, the ladylike and the classic look. I love the combination of soft pink and even softer greys that have a key role in wardrobe looks, whilst I am also spying an Alexa Chung influence in the Peter Pan collars, long sleeves and 1960s style shift shapes. There are also some great dresses that would be perfect for smart workwear, but, as ever with Phase Eight designs, could easily be dressed up to take you for a meal, the theatre or apres work drinks, making them versatile buys that will work well with the rest of your wardrobe.

I make no excuses for saying I love this range, you pay a little extra for Phase Eight but the dresses/clothes really do last forever, they are so far from fast, throwaway fashion. What are your thoughts?

    I love Phase Eight, and I would wear the vast majority of these lovely things you have picked out! They have good sales too, and there’s an outlet near me too, so I don’t think I’ve ever paid full price for their items. You’re right that they’re good quality too, apart from one top that I had that was faulty, the other items have been going strong in my wardrobe for years now. I’m still trying to avoid looking too much at Autumn fashion as haven’t been on holiday yet, another few weeks and I’ll be straight in there. I need to pick up the September issue of Vogue, it’s the only one I buy without fail every year. P x

    I also love Phase Eight although I can rarely afford to shop there. The Angelina Spot Dress is so pretty and the collar is adorable.

    I absolutely ADORE the top dress – Shadow tree. So very very pretty. And I bet it’s really easy to wear too :)

    The top dress is definitely my style. May have to wait until it comes into the sale though!

  5. I have a few pieces from Phase Eight, and you’re right, they do last so well. Some really pretty pieces here, Emma. Lynne x

    Love the shadow print phase eight dress but it doesn’t appear anywhere not even on the phase eight website! Anyone have any idea where I can purchase it? So frustrating as I love. It!
