STYLE IT OUT

LESSONS IN FW21 LAYERING

Step in, your modern layering masterclass is about to start…

Let’s begin with a capsule of essential-yet-stylish base layers to keep you warm as temperatures cool. Our in-house label Iris & Ink’s FW21 Considered Collection offers hero pieces made from more considered materials and processes — the kind of premium-quality classics you’ll hold onto for years and years. From there you can elevate your wardrobe foundations with more fashion-forward staples from the likes of Rejina Pyo, Maison Margiela and many more. The key to wrapping up stylishly is to experiment with color, pattern and silhouettes. Soft, neutral-toned jackets and separates are styled with a welcome level of comfort and ease by layering louche cardigans, hoodies and turtlenecks under structured tailoring. It’s important to stay warm in the cold by reaching for cozy textures, like shearling and ribbed knits, but make sure to add interest with patterned accents and contrasting materials. Practical, playful and polished should be the finished look.

SOFT FOCUS

Invest in classic shearling coats that are warm and fuzzy in the cold weather. For an of-the-moment layered look, cape it over a neutral hoodie and complete with a pair of statement earrings.

STRONG STRIDES

March into winter with strong staples in toffee tones that layer particularly well together. Elevate the skirt’s dipped hem with knee-high boots for a powerful outfit finish.
