FASHION NOTES: EASY LUXE DRESSING

15.03.15

After the rush that is Fashion Month, it’s effortless, easy-to-wear separates that top our wish list. Make nuanced shades your calling card to put a luxe spin on downtime dressing – extra style points for layering tonal hues. If you’re not sure how to get the look, we’ve mastered that one too – compiling our easy-luxe separates into one curated space and (of course) adding a host of visual how-to inspiration for your viewing pleasure. In summary, this look ticks every box; it’s chic, stylish, uncomplicated and ever-so relevant for SS15. Think sheer fabrications, oversized shapes and thrown-on layers and you’ve got it in one.

Tailoring Undone

This season sees tailoring embody a fluidity that’s beautifully elegant. The new rules? It’s all about proportion play. Trouser silhouettes get up-sized and sit high on the waist to expertly drape the female form, and double-breasted blazers are cut to a longer length that nods to 1970’s whimsy. To keep the look soft, opt for a slouchy knit in lieu of a shirt, going for the neutral, tone-on-tone shades that embody SS15’s softer colour palette.

Irresistibly Tactile

Sumptuous fabrications are the key to transforming wardrobe staples from everyday to enduring and a combination of contrasting textures will elevate off-duty looks to luxurious new heights. For spring, sheer silks and fine-knit merino wool make for perfect layering pieces and work against cashmere and leather to add instant depth to a look. Denim, whether distressed and faded or deep in colour and simple in shape, will work to counterbalance premium basics and keep the look personable and effortless.

Evening Simplicity

The jumpsuit is the ultimate in effortless evening styling. It’s loaded with throw-on-and-go appeal and exudes modern elegance. Delicate fine jewellery will complement the look perfectly and add a touch of sparkle in the most understated way. Put the ease into hair and make-up by spritzing your locks with L’Oreal Professionnel’s Mythic Oil and adding a simple slash of red lipstick. It’s a flawless 15-minute recipe!
