ELEVATED EVERYDAY DRESSING
The fashion mood for fall/winter 2023 continues to hero luxe iterations of everyday outfits – think classic, high-quality and, crucially, comfortable pieces you’ll wear for many years to come. This look is all about quality fabrics in relaxed shapes, so seek out slouchy tailoring or wide-leg jeans by Jil Sander and Frame, and style them with pared back yet crisp shirting, minimalist tank tops or effortlessly chic knitwear that endure as timeless investment pieces. To top it off, well-made outerwear by brands such as Vince and Theory is key to completing the look.
THE CLASSIC COAT
The most talked about fall coat this season is the most sensible of them all. Designers made a strong case for the tailored coat this fall/winter, serving up options in both classic finishes and statement color pops. The leading silhouette is impeccably tailored in quality fabrics such as wool and cashmere and comes in an elegant ultra-long shape. In terms of palette, the choice is yours with heritage checks remaining a forever favorite while soft pinks and purples add an unexpected color hit to autumnal looks. Cloak yourself in sleek, future-heirloom styles by Joseph and Brunello Cucinelli. For mood-boosting hues look to Stand Studio and Jakke.
“For ultimate polish, balance proportions by pairing a long tailored coat with midi skirts and boots. For after hours, a maxi skirt will complement the column-esque silhouette.” – Sinead Cutts, Style Director
Step aside pink, vibrant red is here to embolden your new season closet. Fall/winter’s most empowering shade has made an impactful arrival on the streets, where fashion tastemakers are embracing red-everything in bold, head-to-toe looks. Exude instant confidence with an impeccably cut scarlet dress or a crimson two-piece suit, accessorized with chic black accessories. For a more minimalist approach to styling this vivacious hue, introduce flashes of red into your everyday style with statement separates, shoes or a bag.
Timeless over-the-knee boots come in sumptuous suedes, buttery leathers, and high-shine textures this season. Their striking silhouette makes them a statement piece, and the perfect shoe to elevate chic knitted dresses for day-to-night elegance. Stuart Weitzman can always be relied upon to conjure cult styles, while Sergio Rossi has some ultra-covetable pairs that you’ll turn to season-after-season. Second-skin styles look beautiful with billowing dresses, but if a night out is on the agenda, opt for a slouchy pair that allows room for dancing.
“Keep your outfits simple and allow the boots to be the focal point.” – Sinead Cutts, Style Director
