How to dress for the autumn/winter 2020 season? Take inspiration from model and modest muse, Ikram Abdi Omar, and embrace epically exaggerated outerwear, boots that mean business and larger-than-life silhouettes in unexpected bursts of colour. From Ashi Studio’s structured jumpsuit in delicious vanilla to Bottega Veneta’s playful tasseled coat, and Louis Vuitton’s full skirted dress flecked with autumnal shades of gold, cream and khaki green, this season’s high-drama looks are fanciful and fun. 

For an ensemble that is modest and thoroughly modern, opt for luxe layers worn beneath bold and billowing shapes. Lean on leggings (like Burberry’s plaid pair), turtlenecks, over -he-knee boots and wide-brim hats that can be endlessly mix and matched, and invest in buy now, wear forever pieces that can transcend seasons. But don’t be afraid to add a show-off outfit to your repertoire — when it comes to Prada, Bottega Veneta and Chanel, bolder is definitely better.
