Standout suits don’t need to be brightly coloured or overdramatic. A simple twist on the silhouette, like these puffed shoulders, makes a strong statement.
Short people of the world, you owe it to the Olsen twins to wear a coat all the way to the floor like this. Best if the cuts are straight, and the mood ever so slightly monastic.
Tweed cardigan and blue jeans – a little dowdy. Worn with a bralette top or bandeau, showing hints of skin? Suddenly quite sexy.
Sleeves are a big thing this season, so why not take that piece of trend advice a little literally? Make them big, make them ruffled. What could go wrong?
As women’s tailoring moves into a sharper space, men’s is leaning towards a more relaxed silhouette. The snug leather blouson, long and drapey tweed double-breasted jacket, and loose camel trousers are a great triptych of contrasts.
The Prada nylon mini bags are back! And, very importantly, as are the washed pink shades that dominated ‘90s accessories design now that we’re in the throes of the decade’s revival.
This generation’s Pitti dandies have it easy because they can get the whole artfully mismatched look from Gucci. The whole idea, as always, is to bring together unexpected elements to give the look sprezzatura ease.
No need to be precious about your suits. Belt it, roll the hems, and wear it with a touch of insouciance. Then add shoes that look a little off-beat.
Two big ideas here. First, tonal dressing – note the golden satin Prada headband, down to the pale yellow Bottega Veneta sandals. Second, the inspired power of a knee-length sock.
Sometimes, a dress speaks enough on its own. (See: sleeves!) In that case, keep everything else monochromatic. The Sacai x Nike sneakers in this look are a subtle contrast to the feminine vibe.
Is one It bag not enough? Try two. This one is particularly apt for collectors of trendy micro bags that fit precisely one lipstick and a credit card. Think of it as storage expansion.
The outfits with the least fuss and muss tend to be the chicest. Case in point: Kaia Gerber channeling bourgeois soccer mom in a smart checked blazer, casual jeans, sneakers, and a tidy little Prada bag.
Women’s tailoring is a major trend this season; spend some time thinking about the peripherals, such as ties. God is in the details.
Athleisure and streetwear are perhaps not dead. They might have simply moved onto tucking hoodies into killer leather trousers. A high-low mix always works.
If you’re wondering where we’re at on logomania and branding, the answer remains the same: balls to the wall.
