The Frankie Shop has been on my radar for a while. Luxe and minimal tailoring – it’s no surprise the label was spotted on fashion editors and influencers alike during fashion month earlier this year.
I was particularly keen to try their wide fit trousers, and after hearing Brittany Bathgate (who is only slightly taller than me) say positive things about the fit – I’ve had my eye on them ever since!
The label started out in NYC with boutiques in both New York and the Marais district in Paris. While their website offers international shipping, I always hesitated to make a purchase because of the high shipping and return costs – a risk I didn’t want to take having never tried on any of their pieces.
Cue Net-A-Porter saving the day – a limited range of The Frankie Shop available to shop and with free shipping (and returns) over $300 – hooray! I’ve finally managed to nab their highly rated Bea trousers and I share my thoughts further below.
Here are my top picks from their 2019 collection available on Net-A-Porter that I consider would seamlessly integrate into your existing work wardrobe:
I love their take on the boiler suit – it exaggerates the original utilitarian details with its oversized pockets and wider hem. The khaki and beige versions were a mainstay on street stylers all over during fashion month. I like the subtlety of this charcoal version – the darker hue waters down the exaggerated features making it suitable for the office.
Aaaaand… it’s on sale! (You can thank me later.)
This won me over with its subtle peplum hem and belted waist – two features of which you know I am already a fan. The PVC fabric is a fun play on texture and the muted hue makes it a smart choice for a less conservative office environment. Perfect to throw over an outfit during trans-seasonal weather (or Sydney’s current fickle weather).
Aaaaaaaand it’s on sale too! (You’re welcome.)
And last, but certainly not least, is the reason why The Frankie Shop came on to my radar in the first place. Their tailored trousers have had overwhelmingly positive reviews and I am so glad to have finally nabbed a pair.
I chose to fill a gap in my wardrobe with these beige straight leg pants – a colour/style combo I’ve yet to own. I love how it pairs with my mock-neck navy knit below. For reference, I’m wearing a size S (I am usually an AU/UK 8). Having had a look at the size reference chart, I sat between an XS and an S so I chose to go with an S and I’m happy with the size. I will need to hem the pants by a few centimetres (…but that’s nothing new for me being 5’2″ – 158cm).
My initial impressions? All positive at this stage. The fabric feels great and is a low-maintenance wrinkle-resistant garbadine. The colour pairs wells with the navy, white and grey hues in my wardrobe. I love the chic high waist and fit in the leg.
I’m totally hooked and excited for these to be a mainstay in my wardrobe.
As always, thanks again for stopping by!
