The Warehouse Spring Fashion Preview 2013

The Warehouse is actually a great place to find reasonably priced clothing that is still worthy of any fashionista.

I have found several items there that I still have and wear to this day, and no one in the industry has ever cottoned on that I spent a maximum of $7 on any of them.

The spring range is a step forward for the company. On sale now, I got to view a preview of the collections, which are many and prolific.

The Warehouse Spring Preview


The women’s range, headlined by Garage and Maya has some amazing pieces to transition you from the cooler months into the warmth of summer. Complemented by a huge range of footwear, handbags, jewellery and a new collection of H&H lingerie, it’s a breeze to pull together complete outfits at an affordable price. And with a comprehensive men’s and children’s range there’s something for every member of the family too.

There are work staples, sherbert coloured casuals, sports essentials, party dresses, lingerie, beach items, shoes, bags, jewellery and belts.

There were several stories, including an oriental, sixties and pop art theme. The fitness items featured neon brights and a lovely apple green, men have very preppy Americana polo shirts, camo pants and rock print tees.

Hit the beach with sling dresses, pair with shoes in smoke, sand or black: carry in a nautical bag or a tote with embellishments like studs, zips and tassels. My favourites were a boys tee in a retro jellyfish print, some super visible sneakers and a lovely black jacket that will work with anything I already own.
