Lessons in Layering
Autumn calls for fashion’s favourite layers. We love a good Nineties twist on layering, whether stacking a slip dress over a turtleneck or a knit dress over trousers. Take style cues from Altuzarra and Baja East.
Shiny Disco Gowns
Spring’s slip dress will soon be replaced by its evening version of liquid chiffon dresses in gunmetal silvers, reminding us of the Seventies disco era.
Bright shocking pinks are hard to miss on the runways. The eye-catching vivid hue is bold and certain to stand out in a crowd in colder months. J.Crew and Public School worked up a few bright magenta power suits which are on top of our new season wishlist.
Fashion luminaries Alexander Wang and Creatures of the Wind – among others – play with the Beetlejuice stripe in big bold updated versions.
Calf Grazing Boots
The winter runways offer a new ankle-boot silhouette that rises a few inches over the anklebone in a bevy of styles. Victoria Beckham’s patent leather versions with buckles and Altuzarra’s floral print boots have us spoilt for choice.
