A Guide to Dressing for AW/21
With the winter weather finally making an appearance we are ready to embrace our seasonal wardrobes. From classic sartorial coats, to pops of optimistic hues- we’ve broken down this season’s most versatile trends and how to wear them. With cosy knitwear coming to the forefront of our wardrobes this past year at home, designers have reimagined tactile knits and soft layers for the outdoors and they make the perfect pairing with this season’s ‘it’ boot from Gia Borghini.
On the topic of blurred boundaries between home and streetwear, the versatility of the shacket has put these garments on the top of everyone’s wish list. The demand for a hardworking silhouette that maximises an effortless off-duty look while remaining smart and sleek makes the shacket an investment piece that will go the distance. The utilitarian style of the shirt-jacket hybrid is one that dominated the AW21 runways as earthy tones were part of a colour palette that infiltrated this season’s best ready-to-wear looks.
In contrast to the casual ease of the neutral tones, splashes of optimistic brights were seen from the likes of Khaite, Balenciaga and Marni. Reminiscent of normality; colour, prints and positivity were a sunny outlook in the AW21 collections. These brights bought a sense of joy to the humble sweater as homespun knits saw designers craft a more handmade feel on the runway as this trend embraced fashion’s new found love for comfort, reminiscent of the ‘new-normal’. Here’s how to wear this season’s top trends now.
