Up there with baking banana bread and watching almost everything on Netflix, the closet clear-out is sure to go down as one of the most popular lockdown pastimes – and for many of us, the process has been quite transformative. Beyond discovering lost treasures and streamlining our wardrobes, it’s made us question what truly defines a forever piece – ideally beauty and versatility, in equal measure. As a result of this revelation, we’re overhauling the way we shop and hunting for pieces that make our hearts skip a beat.
Enter Bottega Veneta’s timeless knit dress. In a classic brown hue, this figure-sculpting piece doesn’t just come courtesy of fashion’s most in-demand label, it will work for countless climates and occasions. Keep your look light during the warmer months by finishing with luxe leather flip flops, statement sunglasses and a chunky gold chain to complement your summer glow. When the temperature drops, layer a classic trench coat over the turtleneck dress and elevate the look with mules and an eye-catching cocktail ring – not forgetting to tuck a butter-soft grab bag beneath your arm to give the look an insouciant spin.
