Town or Country: Which Heritage Style Do You Fancy?
Whether you want to be a town mouse or country mouse this season, heritage fabrics and feminine silhouettes have never been so versatile.
Cinched waists can either be playful and girly (think, Fausto Puglisi and Marni) or ooze feminine charm with Stella McCartney’s sleek, linear dresses that have an effortless appeal. It all just depends how you choose to wear them.
Burberry Prorsum’s classic aviator jacket can easily be taken from day to night with the addition of eye catching accessories. For a touch of luxury add a fur detail that will keep you warm as the weather gets cooler. Alternatively, layer up under your coat with patterned knit wear from the likes of Lanvin and Rochas for a cozy, country look.
Add a piece from cool girl staple, Missoni, for a bohemian edge that has had a modern update. This season, the label’s signature knits have taken on a more tactile approach with mixed material inserts and more refined silhouettes. In fact, details are important for Fall.
Taking Shapes from Day to Night
The key to taking a lot of the new season’s shapes from day to night is through clever accessories. This Fall there are a variety of ways to make the transition. Unique collars from Au Jou Le Jour pay attention to quirky details and fine beading whilst unusual pieces from Swedish designer Maria Nilsdotter can add an unexpected touch. But if you want to play it safe, add timeless leather gloves or a beautiful hat in a classic colour to add a chic finishing touch.
To make sure all these details work together the easiest thing to do is keep shoes simple. Opt for a pair of fuss free wedge heels that will be comfortable enough to wear all day or slip into a pair of classic pumps come night fall to make sure that your look remains effortless. Neutral tones are also a down to earth way of making a fuss free transition into the new season and are adaptable enough to be worn in the town or the country.
