We all had high expectations for the Hot Girl Summer of 2021 that never was. But we're now facing a restriction-free life in the UK, which will hopefully mean that come summer 2022, we've remembered exactly how to dress up and have a good time – sans worry.

Encouraging us in this optimistic viewpoint is Warehouse, who has just unveiled its latest Icons collection, fronted by Strictly Come Dancing superstar and Grazia contributing editor AJ Odudu.

Inspired by fashion's current preoccupation with '90s and noughties fashion, there are some party pieces that will make you want to go out immediately, including sequin slips, oversized blazers and glorious satin separates.

There is even an homage to one of the most famous dresses of the noughties: John Galliano for Dior's newspaper print dress, as worn by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. Warehouse's version features spaghetti straps and a beautifully draped neckline.

There are tiered maxi dresses, glamorous trench coats, vinyl macs and rainbow brights to really put you in the party spirit. These are statement pieces in every sense, but still super easy-to-wear and practical, too.

The first few pieces have started to drop online now – and are selling fast. You'll have to wait for March 15 for the rest of the collection but it's worth keeping your eyes peeled, for something tells me these pieces won't hang around for long.
