FASHION NOTES: HOW TO STYLE THE MAC

31.08.15

Undeniably timeless and notoriously practical all year round, the mac is a true wardrobe hero. As we prepare to leave behind the summer months and head into September, we look to the versatility of the piece and experiment with how to style it for now. Head to the AW15 Lookbook for more styling inspiration.

FOR DAY

For day, try balancing proportions by layering a long-length mac over an A-line mini skirt and bare legs. Leather fabrications will add a luxe clash of texture and elevate this chic daytime combination into 18-hour territory. A simple V-neck tee or a lightweight sweatshirt will keep the look youthful and a wool trilby will add to its contemporary appeal. Switch out chunky trainers for block-heel ankle boots to update your look as day moves into evening.

FOR EVENING

When summer nights draw in and autumn begins, it’s time to resurrect the cover-up for evening. Make the Vetta mac your go-to style whatever the occasion thanks to it smart-meets-casual aesthetic. Layering it over a navy dress will highlight its neutral hue and keep the overall look fresh and relevant between seasons. A suede mini bag will add a trend-focussed slant and statement heels and a caged metal cuff will put a polished spin on this effortless evening look.

FOR WORK

The perfect work outfit combines style with professionalism, both in and out of the office, and a mac will pull together your look as soon as you step outside. Opt for a draped white shirt, loosely cut black trousers and point-toe heels for an elegant look that masters the season's pared-back minimalism. Accessories will bring personality to the outfit, with a smattering of high-shine jewellery and a structured leather tote adding considered detail.
