On Trend: Autumn Upgrades

The joy of a less than scorching summer is the green light it gives to start investing in your autumn threads now. From chunky loafers that’ll toughen up those summer pieces to the slinky knit dresses we’ve been eyeing up all season long, these are the key pieces to invest in now, wear now, and sweat all year long.

THE CHUNKY LOAFER

The chunky loafer has been a steady fixture in our collections all year long, but Prada have shaken things up a little with the Tri Mule. A big block heel gives some always appreciated height, while the backless design makes them feel more than appropriate for the end of summer – just add socks when the weather cools. Your school uniform all grown up.

Our love for logos is holding firm and Balmain sure know how to deliver the goods. Ft. the brand’s iconic monogram in a cool monochrome palette, pair with summer neutrals now and the colourful bright pieces that are coming for autumn. The finishing touch? A pair of chunky gold hoops that mirror the bag’s strap.

Utilitarian trends are hugely influencing us this August, and Burberry seem to be on the same page with their Waterloo Pocket Trench coat. Lightweight, structured and technical, this is the perfect in-between jacket to keep you both warm and dry. The traditional double-breasted shape and fern green colourway are classic, but the brown pocket with chunky silver zip detailing gives a little edge.

Wear these embellished gold logo earrings to a fancy dinner with a big red lip and slicked back hair, or pair with slouchy pieces for the ultimate high/low dressing any time you please.
