For those who haven’t yet read this week’s PORTER cover story, take note: 1970s suiting is a shortcut to timeless style. With that in mind, Tibi’s tan-colored blazer is exactly the kind of eternally chic piece the PORTER fashion team is backing this season and beyond. With the pre-fall ’20 collections beginning to arrive at NET-A-PORTER, our attention has turned to mid-season style, and a blazer is the perfect cover-up on chilly evenings here in London, or in cooler climes of the Southern Hemisphere. Pair it with a tank top and denim Bermuda shorts on sunny days, and tailored pants and a turtleneck when temperatures drop. PORTER shopping assistant Viktorija Tomasevic has her sights set on this elegant top by London-based label Tove that will work all year round.
“I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect summer top that will go the extra mile for some time now, and Tove’s Thea top offers exactly the sort of longevity and versatility I’ve been searching for. I love everything about it: the interesting silhouette, flattering cinched waist and adjustable ties that add a subtle ruched detail. Best of all, it’s made from 100 percent organic cotton that is naturally biodegradable. I’ll be teaming mine with the brand’s beige tapered pants and a pair of naked sandals for warm summer days and, come fall, I’ll style it with an oversized blazer and straight-leg jeans.”
In our hunt for long-serving yet striking pieces, we’ve also been naturally drawn to contemporary jewelry brand Completedworks. Founder Anna Jewsbury finds inspiration in everything from architectural ruins to profound ceramic sculptures, and her handmade pieces are like artworks in themselves. These mismatched threaded gold earrings are sufficiently pared back to wear every day, but unusual enough to elevate even the simplest of ensembles.
