Sneak Peek: AW16
While the summer days are still upon us, the fashion world is looking to the next season with a thoughtful approach. Instead of commanding head-to-toe trends, the seasonal shift is all about investing in key pieces that will provide sartorial longevity. Introducing: the three key pieces every girl can take from cool summer evenings to blissful autumnal days...
Bomber jacket £18
Bomber jacket £9
The bomber jacket
Bomber jackets are one item we’re already in love with, so we’re more than happy to see it continuing to evolve long into winter and beyond. The lightweight outerwear option can be draped elegantly over eveningwear for a tough-meets-romantic juxtaposition, or worn with ripped denim and a slub tee to embody the jacket’s utilitarian roots. We’re so into AW16’s updates, which employs sequins, embroidery, prints, and contrast trims to elevate the key piece into can’t-do-without territory.
2-in-1 slip dress £13
Slip dress £13
The slip dress
The 90s resurgence is still going strong, and has fostered the return of the minimalist slip dress. We’re feeling the layered look for extra old-school style kudos, with a simple white tee offering the perfect way to channel the era we can’t get enough of. From delicate lace trims, to dainty florals, and classic spaghetti straps, the slip is proving to be quite the closet chameleon. Team with a T-shirt for effortless days of cool, or wear solo with your fave barely-there sandals for evenings out with the girls.
Berlin slogan sweatshirt £8
London slogan sweatshirt £8
The slogan sweat
Wearing our hearts on our sleeves? Nope, these days we’re all about expressing ourselves with slogan tees and sweatshirts. From our most-loved cities, to tongue-in-cheek phrases, our fascination with communicating sartorially isn’t slowing down. If your style is a little more reserved, dip your toes into this bold look with badges and embroidery. We adore the high impact of this look on a sports luxe sweatshirt, but slogan denim, tees, or accessories will work perfectly, too.
Now you have your wish list prepared, and some styling tips to boot, you can hit stores and get prepped for a fresh and exciting new season. Until then, keep it summer-friendly with key pieces and accessories to keep your wardrobe game strong...
