The Checklist: The Trends To Wear Now
Whilst timeless dressing has its benefits, one of the most interesting things about fashion and its seasons is the ability to spotlight those particular tweaks and flourishes that keep us on the pulse of the cultural conversation. Designers have a knack of knowing what we want to wear and how we want to wear it, and that’s where the trends come in. Below we’re bringing you a digest of four of the season’s key themes - whether you go top-to-toe or simply have a taste is up to you. One thing’s for certain, however: do try this one at home!
The Great Outdoors
Oh, the joys of Mother Nature! Proving herself the ultimate trendsetter, this season the natural world takes centre stage, with designers drawing inspiration from rugged outdoor pursuits and their surrounding environs. Discover the rusty browns of Autumnal leaves, the chunky knits that call to mind a log fire in a woodland cabin, and hiking-inspired touches and technical twists to brave the elements in style. For those looking for heavy-duty weatherproof gear, our edit of high performance favourites will keep you protected against even the most dramatic of conditions.
Add a little whimsy to your wardrobe this season with a smattering of print, as seen in the collections of designers such as Bode, Dries Van Noten, Casablanca and Edward Crutchley. Pair back with subdued separates or go for bold in a full coordinated look for extra sartorial punch. However you choose to style your prints, where this season’s trends are concerned, we’re sensing a pattern…
Look Mom, No Hands!
Modern life can be a handful, but your accessories shouldn’t be. Take a leaf out of the new season playbook, where cross body bags, harnesses, belt bags and messenger styles were spotted on the runways of Craig Green, Jacquemus, Casablanca and more.
Whilst tailoring is usually synonymous with sharp shoulders and slick suiting, this season’s offering strikes a softer tone in a palette of dusty pastels, elegant neutrals and emerald greens. Think less Patrick Bateman, more Jay Gatsby.
