With fashion weeks in full swing, we’re drawn to pieces that look effortlessly stand-out while being comfortable enough for days on the go. Carolina Herrera’s strapless blue-and-faded-orange check-print dress with structured bodice is our must-have this week. The boned bodice elongates the silhouette and ends at the waist, meaning understated elegance and comfort remain in perfect harmony. Pair it with leather mules to strike the perfect balance between contemporary cool and chic refinement.
Excitingly, Lanvin’s SS20 collection drops this week, too, designed by Bruno Sialelli, a master of drapery who’s injected color and layered styling into the brand’s runway shows since he became creative director of the historic French house in 2019. Particular highlights include the pale blue, artfully draped midi dress, and the cape in silk and wool, which will work well when contrasted with darker shades. Pair the cape with black cropped trousers, heeled boots and a patent clutch for daytime chic, or, if you’re jetting off to far-flung destinations, accessorize it with Valentino’s capacious raffia tote.
Eye-catching jewelry is the key to elevating any look, and Ejing Zhang’s earrings, set in ultramarine resin with baroque drop pearls, are top of our wish list. Meanwhile, Chloé’s silver and gold choker elegantly snakes around the neck and features a green stone and gold serpent detail that will add just the right amount of dazzle to your daywear.
Finally – given the weather forecast for London Fashion Week isn’t looking bare shoulder- or silk-friendly – Vince’s leather coat in pale yellow, with its elegant collar and knotted waist, will lend an ultra-polished finish to any outfit.
