Arket has done wonders for my wardrobe. Since they started shipping to Australia a couple of years ago, I’ve discovered many pieces that I simply cannot live without – we’re talking ride or die pieces here – like the classic crew neck tee (which I now have in 7 different shades), this striped knit that sells out every time it’s restocked and most recently, this short trench coat. Their classic items always feel so elevated and their price points are excellent given the high quality fabrics they use.
It has reached a point where I have to stop myself from browsing the Arket site so often to prevent unplanned purchases, but they recently released some new pieces in anticipation for the Autumn season that are too good not to share. (If I’m honest, half of these are in my cart already and I’m probably going to pull the trigger straight after publishing this blog post 😅)
And if you’re based in Australia like me, it can be tricky shopping from stores based in the Northern Hemisphere that are experiencing opposite seasons. Arket is based in Sweden but I haven’t had any issues accessing as their classic items as they’re available year-round.
Here’s a round-up of my top picks from their new arrivals:
L: Knitted Mini Skirt in White ($59 USD) – I’ve embraced mini skirts as of late, well, just this one, but it has served as a kick up the bum to add more to my collection! I love the flattering A-line silhouette of this Arket skirt (a flattering cut if you’re pear shaped like me). This skirt is made from a milano knit fabric which is a tightly woven mid-weight fabric – I think it very nice indeed.
R: Wool pullover ($129 USD) – this jumper has a real Toteme vibe about it, perhaps it’s the oversized sleeves? I also dig how the V neck isn’t cut too low.
L: Relaxed Cotton Jumper ($99 USD) – Look! A sweater version of the popular polo knit style striped jump that I already have! This one looks more relaxed, thanks to the crew neck style, but is made from that same milano knit fabric that’s feels durable and premium.
R: Slim Fit Wool Tank Top ($49 USD) – and here’s the tank version of the wool tops that I have been wearing all winter. I love how this tank top doesn’t have a severe racer style like a lot of the tanks that we’re seeing around lately. I’m assuming this top fits just like my merino wool tops – ie. very slim – so I would be looking to pick this up in a size S as opposed to my usual size XS.
L: Short Sleeved Linen Shirt ($59 USD) – I’ve only heard amazing things about their linen shirts. They’re an oversized cut and the fabric sounds like it’s a premium quality. I’ve seen a lot of my favourite influencers style their oversized linen shirts with the matching linen shorts. Don’t be surprised if you see me doing the same!
R: Cotton Utility Jacket ($259 USD) – I’m pretty close to reaching blazer peace in my wardrobe so I’m finding myself drawn to jackets that I can style in more relaxed looks. I love the oversized proportions on this khaki jacket, and the drawstring waist works to create a peplum waistline which works wonders at providing a bit more shape.
Short Trench Coat ($199 USD)
And last, but not least, I’ve got my eyes on the black version of the short trench coat I already own in beige. It’s a style I’ve worn non-stop since I bought it a few weeks ago. I love everything about it. If there’s one item in my round-up that I would recommend you prioritise, it’s this style!
